Re: Vietnam Airlines studying A350-1000 and 777X for non stop flights to the US

The A351 wont be able to fly 15-16.5 hours nonstop with a full payload no matter what Airbus tells VN. The A359 can do it for VN as can the B789 but neither will the B781 nor A351 ! Cant VN order the A359ULR and just focus its WB fleet around the A350/B787 families rather than add a 3rd variant i.e...

An A330 that in typical configuration, can outfly an A346, a 77W, and any standard 747 model ever built.... insane! :eek: That's quite an astonishing leap from the original A332, which flew just over 6200nm I believe.
