Normality still might have to wait that long....And people thought in 2020 that long range mas travel would not be back till 2024 lol
A normal 350 can't do the job. They were ULR variants, though I didn't keep up on what the exact variation was.Does Airbus have any spare A350-900s at the moment?
It won't take all that much training for anyone on the 330 or 380. Normal delivery schedule for the ULR aircraft would easily be slow enough to allow the training necessary. coughpit is much the same as a 380, with two engines crossed out.If they did, would make sense for Qantas to lease a couple for a few years to start training their crews and make an easy transition to A350-1000s - and in the mean time help fill the gap on the non-ultra long haul routes.
