Re: Airbus sales chief defiant on A330neo demand as Boeing seals new win

To me, the 330neo is a lot like the 753/764 in some ways. Not a bad airplane, by any means, but... If you want an amazing new airplane with tons of complicated tech and lots of capability, for a high price, you get the A350. If you are truly seeking value, and don't need whizz-bang fanciness, you g...
