Re: AR next long haul type must be able to fly nonstop to Australia/NZ

The A330-800 could do a SYD-EZE nonstop (not sure about the 900). That said, AR is pretty conservative with its fleet; can't imagine them going for a plane whose future, for the time being, is not a guaranteed success. 6,366nmi? Airbus advertises 6,550 for the A339. I have to think that's within sp...

Sorry, but did I miss something? I've seen many claim this, but where's the proof? Sure, it may be cheaper than the 787, but the latter offers better range and its seating layout is more convenient for airlines. If the A330neo was better than the 787 wouldn't the airlines have ordered it instead?
