Re: UA changes order for 35 A350-1000s to 45 A350-900s

Is 45 x 900s worth the same as 35 x 1000s? If so, not much gain for Airbus An extra $1.4billion at list according to Bloomberg. And it certainly wouldn't rule out the -1000 in the longer term, either. That would be the very long term I guess since UA has quite new B777-300ER's in the fleet. But ove...

I would guess that if Airbus needs to do a new MLG it would cost them a lot more. There have been A320's before with a double bogey landing gear before. I believe they were for the Indian market at the time. So that effort would not cost them much I presume. See: http://www.airteamimages.com/pics/1...
