Indeed. It can fly as far as a B777-200LR, but less heavy. Not to mention, the sleek design can allow as many seats (if not a tad fewer) than a typical B777.

At the moment, nope. But, I was gauging those cities for distance because a lot of Filipinos live in such cities as New York, Chicago, and Houston, to name a few... and they want to fly nonstop as much as possible. Consider, however, that with nonstop flights, they use a lot of fuel. If we want to fly between the Philippines and the US, we would either use...

- Philippine Airlines (only flies to HNL, YVR, SFO, LAX, and YYZ at the moment, soon to JFK via YVR)
- Delta Airlines, JAL, or ANA (via NRT)
- Cathay Pacific (via HKG)
- Korean Air or Asiana (via ICN)
- China Airlines or EVA Air (via TPE)
- China Eastern (via PVG)
- Air China (via PEK)

And soon, United might expand its ops to the Philippines...

I don't see many Airbus A340's in the sky ? I liked them, a large twin aisle airliner with four engines...no second deck, but four engines is kind of like owning a car with a V8...four cylinder turbos can do the job but going a long way...you feel secure and...it looked nice : )

And you won't ever see. The time of "four engines for long haul" has passed.

A commitment for 4 a330-900neo from Israel-based carrier Arkia
Quote:
Arkia A330neo gives Airbus first Israeli long-haul deal

Israeli carrier Arkia is to become the first carrier in the country to take Airbus long-haul aircraft with a tentative agreement to acquire up to four A330-900neos.

The airline has signed a memorandum of understanding for the jets, the airframer states.

All A330neo jets will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines. No delivery date for the Arkia aircraft has been disclosed.

Israel has proven a difficult market for Airbus, with flag-carrier El Al a traditional customer for Boeing.

But Israir agreed to acquire A320s in 2007 and the carrier also briefly used an A330 for long-haul operations.

Arkia became an Airbus customer three years ago when it ordered four A321neo jets.

Chief executive Nir Dagan says the A330neo will be a “key asset” to help the airline “grow efficiently on highly-competitive international long-haul routes”.

Airbus confirms that the commitment marks its first widebody aircraft deal in Israel.

One more A330neo order firmed. I think this is the only commitment from last year that wasn't firmed yet. So, as of now, Airbus has 145 firm orders for the a330neo (135 for the -300 and 10 for the -200). Having received that amount of order in just 8 months, I would say this program is doing pretty well, got more orders than what I expected. Hopefully, it will get more orders this year with the upcoming Paris and Dubai airshows.

For the wide-body market in general, beside the a330neo orders and the 777X orders firming, we didn't see many new orders. So, this year should be more promising.

Quote:
Air Lease Corp. firms up order for 30 A321LRs, 25 A330-900neos

Los Angeles-based Air Lease Corp. (ALC) has finalized its order for 30 Airbus A321LRs and 25 A330-900neos.

ALC was the first customer to commit to each of the aircraft variants, announcing plans to take the A330-900neos at the 2014 Farnborough Airshow and the A321LRs at the type’s launch in January 2015.

“We see significant market appetite for Airbus’ A321LR and A330neo models, offering operators exactly what they want—even more range, even better economics and superior level of passenger comfort,” ALC chairman and CEO Steven Udvar-Hazy said.

The A321LR, due for delivery from 2019, is the newest variant of the A321neo. Airbus said the A321LR’s 4,000nm range is the longest of any single-aisle aircraft, making it capable of transatlantic and long-haul routes. It can hold 206 passengers in a “comfortable two-class layout.” This latest deal takes ALC’s firm A321neo commitment to 90 aircraft.

“We listen very carefully to our customers and are clearly seeing that our strategy to constantly improve our products through incremental innovations means we are able to not only meet but exceed their highest expectations,” Airbus COO-customers John Leahy said.

ALC’s total Airbus order book now stands at 258 aircraft, comprising 53 A320ceos, 140 A320neos, 15 A330s, 25 A350 XWBs and 25 A330neos.

A firm order from Turkish for 4 more a330-200F

Quote:
Turkish Airlines orders four more A330-200Fs

Turkish Airlines has placed a firm order for four additional Airbus A330-200 freighters that will be operated by its Turkish Cargo business.

This latest order will join the five A330-200Fs Turkish Cargo already operates, taking it to nine of the type. Airbus said the aircraft will help the carrier to “quickly meet the growing cargo market demand”.

The aircraft will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines.

“The A330-200F freighter aircraft have demonstrated outstanding operational reliability and performance for our cargo transport operations. It is with this in mind that we chose to expand our freighter fleet with more A330-200F,” Turkish Airlines CEO Temel Kotil said.

Across its fleet, Turkish Airlines has 139 Airbus aircraft in service, comprising 91 single-aisle aircraft, two A310 freighters, 17 A330-200, 18 A330-300, five A330-200F and six A340s.

Skymark has ended all their A330 leases, the planes which they already had in their fleet are returned to the lessors, the remaining on order won't be delivered.

http://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/ne...ps-a330-leases


AirAsiaX might take several of these A330, but it's not clear where they will all go. They will need a new interior as Skymark operated them with a high density premium class configuration without any thrills like AVOD.

“As we look to introduce wide body aircraft for the first time into our fleet, with its proven economics, reliability and passenger comfort, we have found the A330 to perfectly support our plans to expand into Europe and Asia, to enhance our regional presence, to open up new routes and to grow our market share,’’ said John Mirenge, Chief Executive Officer of RwandAir.

The two aircraft will have 261 and 300 seats respectively and will come in a triple-class configuration with Rolls Royce Trent 772B engines and will be delivered in the second half of 2016. With this addition RwandAir’s fleet will reach ten aircraft.

“We are delighted that RwandAir has confirmed its confidence in the A330, and are extremely pleased to welcome them as a new A330 customer,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “The A330 Family offers a unique combination of unbeatable economics, versatility and fuel efficiency. Passengers will be able to enjoy a new flying experience with state of the art inflight entertainment systems and best-in-class passenger comfort that only Airbus offers.”
