Over the years OEW impact from MTOW expansion seems to have been minimal. The step to NEO engines had higher impact. Doesn’t this make the original A330 from the nineties too heavy / over built / compromised because of the A340? Just a thought... Overbuilt isn't really the correct designation. The ...Jump to post
Might be a stupid question, but anyway here it goes. The 235t 5700nm model fits right into the 4000-6000nm MOM specs. However, the NEO increased the MTOW and also the range. Was it not possible to have more efficient engines with 235t model so that it can compete in the MOM against the 797? With lo...Jump to post

Thanks to the hysterics of the British foreign Ministry, Putin received almost 77% of the vote in the election. Without the hysterics of the British, he would have received 10-15% less. Really?
