Yes it did. The airline reverted back to its original name, Saudia, but kept the cream livery and gold palm on blue logo.

This looks pretty brilliant on an A330, combining two liveries at the same time...

Airbus launches the A330neo

http://www.airbus.com/newsevents/new...s-the-a330neo/

Quote:
Following a decision by the Board of Directors of the Group, Airbus has launched the A330-800neo and A330-900neo, two new members of its Widebody Family, which will incorporate latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, aerodynamic enhancements and new cabin features. Benefitting from the unbeatable economics, versatility and high reliability of the A330, the A330neo reduces fuel consumption by 14% per seat, making it the most cost efficient, medium range Widebody aircraft on the market. In addition to greater fuel savings, A330neo operators will benefit from a range increase of up to 400 nautical miles and all the operational commonality advantages of the Airbus Family. Deliveries of the A330neo will start in Q4 2017.

“The A330 is a very important margin contributor for our Group. It’s also one of the most reliable and efficient commercial aircraft ever. Customers love it. With our decision to re-engine the plane, we will keep the A330 flying high for many more years to come. The development costs for the A330neo will be incurred from 2015 to 2017 with an impact of around -70 basis points on Airbus Group’s 2015 Return on Sales target. However, we have a very good business case and the A330neo, once in service, will continue to significantly contribute to our group’s earnings,” said Tom Enders, CEO of Airbus Group.

“The A330neo is the logical evolution of our reliable and versatile A330 Family. It provides an optimal solution for airlines around the world looking to minimise their fuel and operating costs while offering best-in-class comfort to their passengers,” said Fabrice Br้gier, Airbus President and CEO. “We see strong market potential for the A330neo, and like its market-leading smaller sister, the A320neo, we are confident this new aircraft will be a success in the medium-haul segment. We are again leveraging a proven aircraft with a wide operator base and making it even more efficient with the latest innovations and technology developments.”

In addition to the new Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, the A330neo will feature incremental innovations, including aerodynamic enhancements such as new A350 XWB inspired winglets, an increased wing span and new engine pylons. Pilots will benefit from latest generation cockpit systems, and the already very comfortable A330 cabin will be further optimised to offer up to ten additional 18 inch wide seats. Passengers are winners too, as they will be able to enjoy a 21st century on-board experience with for example, fourth generation In Flight Entertainment (3D films), mood-lighting and full connectivity.


Airbus selects Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 as exclusive engine for the A330neo

http://www.rolls-royce.com/news/pres...14_a330neo.jsp

Quote:
Rolls-Royce today announced that Airbus has selected its new Trent 7000 as the exclusive engine for the new Airbus A330neo.

The Trent 7000, launched today, is the seventh member of the Trent engine family. Over the last 19 years, Rolls-Royce Trent engines have accumulated more than 75 million flight hours. The majority of modern widebody aircraft, either in service or on order, are powered by Trent engines.

The new Trent 7000 engine brings together:

- Experience from the Trent 700 - the engine of choice for the current A330
- Architecture from the Trent 1000-TEN - the latest version of the Trent 1000 engine
- Latest technology from the Trent XWB - the world's most efficient large civil engine

The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 will deliver a step change in performance and economics compared to the current version of the Trent 700. It will improve specific fuel consumption by ten per cent; have twice the bypass ratio; and will halve perceived noise.

Fabrice Bregier, Airbus, President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "The A330neo is the logical evolution of our reliable and versatile A330 Family. It provides an optimal solution for airlines around the world looking to minimise their fuel and operating costs while offering best-in-class comfort to their passengers. We see strong market potential for the A330neo and we are confident this new aircraft will be a success in the medium-haul segment. The Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 combines world-leading experience and cutting-edge technology to play a vital role in ensuring the success of this aircraft for decades to come."

Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce, President, Civil Large Engines, said: "The Trent 7000 is the natural selection for the A330neo, bringing together our engine experience, design architecture and leading-edge technology. With this pedigree, supported by TotalCareฎ services that maximise aircraft availability, the economic advantages of the Trent 7000 are helping to write this new chapter in the A330 success story."

The first engine test run for the Trent 7000 is planned for 2015 with certification expected in 2017, supporting an aircraft entry into service in Q4 2017. The engine design draws upon existing architectures and expertise which are the result of ongoing research and development investment, of approximately ฃ1bn a year, which Rolls-Royce makes across its aerospace and non-aerospace businesses. Each previous member of the Trent engine family has been either the market leader, aircraft launch engine, or both.

According to the press conference, it is on par with the 787 in terms of fuel burn per trip (Leahy claims the A330-800 is 1% better).

The range of the 330-800 is 400 miles better than the 787-8 and whist the 330-900 has 1000 miles less range than the 787-9.

Since the A330 was paid for years ago and the neoisation is costing very little (€2 billion) they will be able to sell it for a cheaper price than the 787 which still needs to pay its $30 billion development costs back.

As for the A350-800, Airbus have said they are not canceling it but they expect all the remaining customers to switch to the A330 Neo which will be better than the A350-800. On cannibalization, they do not expect to cannibalize the A350-900 because it is clearly for a different market.

Interesting times ahead

Looks nice with those wing tips and larger engines. Certainly much nicer than the awkward looking A350.

Hopefully they will get the first airline customer during the show

Air Lease Becomes A330neo Launch Customer
Air Lease became the launch customer for the Airbus A330neo with a memorandum of understanding for 25 A330-900neo aircraft.

Airbus announced the launch of the revamped twin-aisle jet, which comes with new, more fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce engines.

Air Lease had been one of those pushing for Airbus to update the jet and said on Monday it thought the move would extend the life of the A330 family by at least another 20-25 years.

"There is a compelling price difference between the A330neo and any other wide body. I think it was a very smart, astute move on the part of Airbus," Air Lease President John Plueger said.

ALC will start receiving its first A330neos in 2018.

ALC also announced a firm order for 60 A321neos, for which it would select the engines at a later date.

Airbus said the Air Lease order was worth USD$14.1 billion in total at list prices.

I Dont Think So. Because Fuel Cost Of 787-9 At Least $8 per Litre maximum cost Litre is 10.5
Because 787-9 Only Need 120000 Litre Fuel To Reach 15000 KM in oneway
Meanwhile A330 Is Very Large Fuel that can Spending in one Litre is about $10.5 for A330-200 Classic or the newer
so i think A330 Must Been reduce Cost Fuel Perlitre. and FYI in the last Calculation of A330 The Cheaper Price in a Litre its about $9.3

Why do I have this feeling that Hawaiian Airlines is about to ink a deal to eventually replace all their remaining 767-300ER fleet with 12-15 A330-800neo planes? The range of the A330-800neo--about 7,600 nautical miles--is enough to allow Hawaiian Airlines to fly anywhere in the Pacific and easily to the US East Coast.

I'm wondering why they haven't opted for pivot bins.

Rolls-Royce Details Trent 7000 Plans For A330neo

Quote:


As the exclusive engine provider for the newly-launched Airbus A330neo with the Trent 7000, Rolls-Royce has embarked on a fast-tracked test and development program to support the big twin’s entry-into-service target of late 2017.

Although most new engine development programs take an average of around six years to come to market, Rolls is halving the time by basing the Trent 7000 on the Trent 1000-TEN, the latest version of the engine family currently under development for the Boeing 787. The new A330 variant will run for the first time in 2015, and be flight tested on Rolls’ 747 flying testbed in 2016. A decision on whether further flight tests will take place at Airbus before mounting on the A330neo is yet “to be determined” says Rolls-Royce Customer Marketing vice president Richard Goodhead. The engine, rated at between 68,000 lb and 72,000 lb. thrust, will power both new variants which will be called the A330-800neo and -900neo.

The Trent 7000 is “a relatively low risk program” says Goodhead, who adds engine certification is targeted for the first quarter of 2017. Although weighing considerably more than the Trent 700, Rolls says the performance benefits of the newer technology Trent 1000-derivative will easily exceed the penalties of the larger engine’s drag and mass. The engine will be cantilevered further forward and higher on the wing pylon to ensure adequate ground clearance and load distribution Goodhead adds. Compared to the 97.5 in. fan diameter and 5:1 bypass ratio of the current Trent 772, the Trent 7000 will have the same 112 in. fan diameter and 10:1 bypass ratio of the newest 787 engine.

Advances in the core design give the new engine an overall pressure ratio of 50:1 compared to 36:1 on the Trent 700. Combined with the higher bypass ratio, the Trent 7000 specific fuel consumption is 10% lower than that of the baseline engine. “When that’s integrated with the airframe changes of the A330-800/900neo it will result in a 14% lower fuel burn per seat,” says Goodhead. The bigger fan will also significantly cut noise, enabling the A330-800/900neo to meet stiffer London airport ‘quota count’ (QC) noise regulations of QC1/0.25 for departure and arrivals respectively, compared to the QC 2/0.5 capabilities of the current aircraft.

The Trent 7000 version of the ‘TEN’ will also be adapted to power the A330’s pneumatic and electric systems with the addition of bleed offtakes and a different power gearbox. The changes will be based on standard three-shaft offtake systems such as that used in the Trent 900 engine for the A380 which takes bleed air for environmental control and wing anti-icing from ports in both the intermediate and high pressure spools, depending on demand level and flight phase. Other adaptations related to the bleed system will include modifications to the front bearing housing assembly to prevent the potential for oil-related vapor from entering the air system.

AirAsiaX becomes the first airline customer and (so far and I believe will remain) the largest customer for the A330neo . So, Airbus has landed 105 Commitments for the aircraft as of today:
- 30 for Air Lease Corporation
- 15 each for Avolon and CIT Aerospace
- 50 for AirAsiaX

Quote:
FARNBOROUGH: AirAsia X signs for 50 A330neos

Low-cost operation AirAsia Group has signed for 50 Airbus A330-900neo jets, the most significant commitment to date for the new type.

The aircraft, subject to a memorandum of understanding, will be delivered to long-haul division AirAsia X.

AirAsia has been a strong supporter of the proposal to re-engine the A330, although it had originally pressed for a General Electric GEnx-powered version.

Airbus has launched the A330neo exclusively with Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 powerplants.
