Airbus COO Leahy says AirAsia pushing for A330neo
During the Airbus concluding show press conference with CEO Tom Enders and COO Customers John Leahy, I posed the following question to press conference.
On a tactical level, the seemingly rapid decline in interest to pursue A350-800, also suffering a two year delay, would leave a hole in the Airbus product lineup to compete against Boeing's 787-9 and -10X. A re-engined A330-200 or -300 may offer significant range and fuel burn improvements as the long-range twin benefits from continuing evolution in engine technology on GEnx, Trent and PurePower engines later in the decade, while allowing for an aircraft to compete on cost with the comparatively low investment that preserves the customer base.
