My track record is pretty good. Unfortunately when I get proven right and I start quoting myself from years prior my posts get deleted.
If you searched my username you might think I am a time traveller.
People called me paranoid about grandfathering.
It's nice that you can be so self satisfied with your own modesty.... I'm pleased for you.
Meanwhile, back on topic, where's the evidence that Airbus are losing financially on the A330NEO?
I haven’t seen any evidence that Airbus is losing financially on the A330neo.
What is happening is that the airplanes are delivering late. There have been issues with the Trent 7000. ETOPS approval was late. Airlines like Air Senegal even had to fly the A330neos back to Toulouse and lease capacity from HiFly. Airlines like Azul are struggling to deal with the year long delay in the program

I believe the various problems with the A330neo can be fixed. They probably are causing short term financial pain at Airbus, but I haven’t seen any indication that there is a long term financial problem with the A330neo
