The A330neo is designed to complement the A350 in Airbus’ widebody lineup. Through commonality for Air Crews and Passengers, Airbus will cover the market from 250 seats to 370 seats with four aircraft which share Pilot rating and Passenger experience.​



The cabin on the A330neo has been upgraded to the same design and standard as the A350. The picture shows the A330neo cabin on the left and the A350 on the right.



Airbus is now getting more and more requests for A330neo nine-abreast economy layouts. It has therefore developed a cabin variant with nine 17 inch wide seats, featuring 17 inch wide aisles.

Depending on the type of economy section, the A330-800 can house about the same number of seats as a 787-8 or about 27 more as is shown in this example from the review.



With an advantage of 27 seats, the economics of the Boeing 787-8 and A330-800 change according to Airbus.



The fuel burn improvements for the A330-800 is coming from changes to the aircraft’s aerodynamics and improved engines.



The changes to the wing’s aerodynamics are significant. Through increased span and the resulting need to re-twist the wing, the pressure distribution has been brought even closer to the theoretically optimal elliptical shape.

The changes deliver an aerodynamic aggregate improvement of 4%. The aspect ratio of the A330neo wing is now higher than the 787 wings.



The A330neo market

Airbus claims it now controls the midrange market after a Boeing domination 10 years ago. The picture shows the situation in 2008 for routes with lengths between two and 10 hours.

Compared to the present picture the A321 and A330 families now dominate this market segment.

Тут главное правильно провести границу - что такое "Large single-aisle". Опусти границу на 15 мест, со 177 до 162 в двухкласной компоновке - в график попадёт B738 и картинка в левой части полностью изменится :)

Хотя успехи Airbus в правой части графика (8-10 часовые полёты) сохранятся.

A330-900 secures beyond-180min ETOPS approval
25 JANUARY, 2019
SOURCE: FLIGHT DASHBOARD BY: DAVID KAMINSKI-MORROW LONDON

Airbus has secured a further extended twin-engined operations (ETOPS) clearance for the A330neo from the European Aviation Safety Agency.
EASA has approved the A330-900 to conducted ETOPS beyond 180min, according to a 24 January revision of capabilities.
The A330-900 – the larger variant of the A330neo – had obtained 180min ETOPS clearance on 14 November.
This approval had initially been conditional, because inspection work on the Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 powerplant for the type had not been finalised.
EASA granted 330min ETOPS clearance to the Trent 7000 engine in mid-December, and this has led to the approval for beyond-180min ETOPS on the A330-900.

Ну почему ноунеймы. Просто Сидят на островах, летать надо далеко, нужны борта, туристы все дела. 12 направлений, живут аж с 1983 года, судя по вики. Ну норм.
