Re: A321XLR: Seattle-Asia?

With Airbus soon to launch the A321LR and already talking about building a 4500nm capable LR, one starts to wonder about it opening up secondary markets in Asia from at least Seattle, with the most likely single mission application being Delta using them to secondary Japanese markets. A 4500nm capa...

Re: Reuters: Airbus is studying A321XLR with extended range over LR

We still don’t have clarity on the core question: Where are they going to put the extra 4t of fuel? There seem to be two theories: - Airbus can find unused space to expand the current wing box/centre tank (a little over 8000 litres) to accommodate the extra fuel; or - they will replace the three AC...
