  • OPINION: Airbus delivers great wide hope; but what next?


    ​A year ago, Airbus’s widebody strategy looked ragged at best. At one end of its offering, the A330 was a two-decade-old programme with a depleting backlog (its thirsty A340 sibling having already been killed off). At the other, the A380 was struggling to expand its appeal beyond Emirates. In the middle, Toulouse’s great hope was the A350. But while the -900 variant was selling well, the smaller -800 looked doomed.
