Re: Reuters: United to consider Airbus A321 NEO.

On a separate note, would it make sense for Boeing to develop a 767 MAX in the same manner than Airbus NEO'd the 330? You'd think a long-time 767 operator like UA would look at such a bird to directly replace some 767s. It would, if there was a fitting engine on the market. But in this thurst class...

Nice method to use the overcapacity of the A380 completion facilities.

Cabin outfitting was an option, but not as of yet. Only painting for some 330s & 350s is done in XFW

Some capacity is used for the A320.
