Re: Lets say Airbus kill the A330neo...

The A330-900 isn't going anywhere at all. 200+ orders is more than enough for a new plane. Plus, like the 777X, more and more orders will appear as their predecessors need replacing. The A330neo definitely won't replace all A330's, it came in wayyyy too late to do that. But I do believe it can compe...
