Re: Reuters : Airbus to counter the "NMA"by the existing 330neo and the A21N

They are winning A330 orders simply by selling it extremely cheap. And they lost the HA order. Both OEM sell planes dirt cheap when it’s in their interest. Let's assume HA paid a high price to be allowed to order the 787 & cancel their A330NEO.. or Boeing offered 787s at a price they just could...

Re: Reuters : Airbus to counter the "NMA"by the existing 330neo and the A21N

The only advantage in design that the A320NEO series has over the max (from an efficiency perspective) is tha that the A320 has longer landing gear which allows for larger engines and a larger angle of rotation. The combination of these factors is why the A321NEO has better performance and higher c...

The A330 fuselage, even with a much smaller/lighter wing, is a bit too big and heavy for this requirement. An "A300 Mk 2" would be at an economic disadvantage versus both NMA as currently imagined and the A321neo. Do we really know that? Or is it dependent on use? We keep being told that ...
