A330neoThe A330neo launch and its implications

The biggest headline from Farnborough 2014 was the launch of the A330neo, which will be a more effective direct competitor to the Boeing 787. The new competition will be a classic case of trading operating efficiency for lower capital costs, as the 787, with similar engine technology, advanced systems and composite construction, will be more fuel efficient than the A330neo. But Airbus has fully amortized A330 program costs, and can provide an A330neo at a much lower price than Boeing 787.
