Airbus intending to close range gap between narrowbodies and widebodies

    Airbus Commercial Aircraft president Guillaume Faury said the manufacturer intends to “completely close the gap between the single-aisle and the long-range,” with its A330neo and A321neo aircraft (Bloomberg, 26-Nov-2018). Airbus reportedly plans to offer a reduced take-off weight variant of the A330neo and a further range enhanced version of the A321neo in 2019, to close the current range operating capacity gap between its narrowbody and widebody aircraft families.
