    Airbus confirmed it is in talks with Qantas Airways regarding delivering an aircraft designed for a nonstop Sydney-London route centred around the A350-900ULR, rather than reviving a shorter A350 variant (Reuters, 30-Nov-2017). Airbus head of sales for the Pacific region Iain Grant stated: “We are bringing in our A350-900ULR which is going to do the Sydney-London mission and we are very comfortable with that and we will continue to work with them to meet their requirements”.
