Recently we posted an article on the tremendous improvements Airbus has brought to the A330. The common thinking is that the 777 killed the A340 – but there is an argument to be made that the A330 did this. Airbus’ John Leahy presented the company’s enhanced higher gross weight (240t) A330 today. This weight will now apply to both the A330-200 and A330-300. The aircraft has seen impressive performance gains and it looks like they aren’t done yet. Listen to Mr Leahy’s presentation and note the confidence he has in this airplane and its ability to take on the more modern 787.
