@LeehamNews Delay of delivering A350-1000 was due to @RockwellCollins issues with QSuite, says @qatarairways Akbar Al-Baker.
@LeehamNews Akbar Al-Bakar says there is a “probability” @qatarairways will buy more A350s to put into “our leasing company.”
@LeehamNews Fabrice Bregier says big wave of replacing @Boeing 77-300ER will start around 2022. 777-9 is too big, he says. Now is the time to get aggressive in sales campaigns. Market for -1000 is not as large as -900. @Airbus @qatarairways.
@LeehamNews Marisa Lucas doesn’t see need for stretched A350-“1100” just now. Implementing -1000 improvements into -900, including wing twist, higher winglets, aerodynamics, improving economics 1% and higher MTOW. @Airbus @qatarairways first delivery press conference.
@LeehamNews 95% commonality between @Airbus A350-900 and -1000, 40 more seats.
