The customers who signed up are looking at a low run frame and crap residual values by 2025...even with high commonality with the CEO. Squiffy bottoms all around.
Your math is a "little" off. They need to sell 400 units at $5million profit each, not $50million to breakeven. Just a small diff. of $45m/plane.

Airbus press release for the 1st flight.

First A330neo becomes airborne for its maiden flight
Quote:
A330neo Family flight-test programme now underway;

Three development aircraft will prepare both variants of the A330neo programme for certification


The first A330neo took off this morning at Blagnac in Toulouse, France at 09.57 hrs local time, for its maiden flight taking place over south-western France. The aircraft, MSN1795, is a A330-900 and the first of three certification flight-test aircraft to fly, powered by the latest technology Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 turbofans.

The crew in the cockpit on board this flight comprise: Experimental Test Pilots Thierry BOURGES, Thomas WILHELM and Test-Flight Engineer Alain POURCHET. Meanwhile, monitoring the aircraft systems and performance in real-time at the flight-test-engineer’s (FTE) station are Jean-Philippe COTTET, Emiliano REQUENA ESTEBAN and Gert WUNDERLICH.

The A330neo’s certification development programme itself will last around 1,400 flight-test hours. This will comprise 1,100 flight hours for the A330-900 campaign – to achieve its respective EASA and FAA Type Certification around the middle of 2018; plus 300 flight hours for A330-800 version – which will be certified in 2019. Overall, the full A330neo Family flight-test campaign will be performed by three certification flight-test aircraft, plus the first production aircraft (the latter to validate the Airspace cabin prior to EIS).

Launched in July 2014, the latest generation of Airbus’ widebody family, the A330neo builds on the A330’s proven economics, versatility and reliability while reducing fuel consumption by a further 14 per cent per seat. The NEO’s two versions – the A330-800 and A330-900 – will accommodate 257 and 287 passengers respectively in a three-class seating layout, are powered by the latest-generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, accommodate up to 10 more seats, offer new “Airspace” cabin amenities, and feature a new larger span wing with Sharklet wingtip devices.

Doubt that they are rethinking about ordering the 787. Why when they are about to receive A321neos? And they have stated that they are planning and studying the possible use of the A330neo to do Hawaii-Europe. And they also already operate a fleet of A330s. Ordering the 789 randomly wouldn't make sense as they are trying to have fleet commonality.

And the CEO himself confirmed yesterday that they are looking at alternatives for the A338. Although without specifically mentioning the types they are looking at. Just "Both Airbus and Boeing have terrific products".

Will these NEO end up like A340? New engines and wings are not minor improvement. It's like 40% new anyway but the take up rate is not like what they expected?

They could also go for the Delta way: convert back from neo to ceo and snapping the final A330-200 slots. Or get some of the younger second-hand A332 when they are replaced with A350/787/neo's..

Please no A32x-like planes for transatlantic flights. This should remain in the hands of B767/777/787 and A330/350/380.

I really like the A330/A340 - wish more airlines would buy them. Their 2-4-2 layout makes international air travel a little more humane.

Otherwise, it looks like we'll be stuck in 3-3-3/3-4-3 configs for the next 25 years at least.

Don't worry. Many airlines willl operate the A330neo.

Some, such as the Southeast Asian carriers sans SQ will order it. The A330 was designed for them after all - or at least they responded to it first. The Chinese airlines are still taking brand new A330s which aren't being used for replacement.

But perhaps the reason why Airbus isn't worried about this, or the A350-1000 for that matter, is because Boeing is mopping up large orders for Boeing 787. While Boeing has increased production, they are also dealing with brand new orders. And THe Paris Agreement will be signed 2020 in time for gong into effect 2026.

And then being stuck on Amsterdam for going to America . Not the airport's fault but with smaller planes it would be dead-easy to fill up a plane between Eindhoven and New York. More remote places would be connected much easier than today eliminating the need of a transfer. I know the big boys ain't gonna like it but that's how the market works.

would an Airbus A330-1041 be feasible to "fight" with Boeing 787-10?

I actually thought that was the premise of Boeing back when they first presented the 787: "Hey look at our brand new plane which will be able to fly farther than a 767, but can operate from smaller, regional airports instead of mega-hubs".

But then the majority of airlines either upscaled from a 757 to a 787-8, or replaced their 767-200 with 787-8. And still operated from major hubs.
And instead of using the 787 for what Boeing was placing it in the market, airlines now want to abuse the A321 neoLR and 737 MAX 9/10 for that kind of operations.

IMHO the A32x neo and 737 MAX just should be restricted to ETOPS-120. No way they could cross the Atlantic/Pacific then, problem solved.

In the wide-body market, the 787-10 is now the most urgent threat for Airbus, even more than the 777-9X. The derated regional a350-900 and a330-900neo are not enough. Airbus needs a new variant of the a350 optimized for medium-haul to compete seriously against the 787-10 as I doubt, for the same mission, A-list airlines like the ME3, SQ, CX... would order an old generation aircraft like the a330 if the competition offers a new generation aircraft.

Tunisair To Order Six Airbus A330neos, Launch New York Flights

Tunisair is on the verge of signing an order for six Airbus A330neos, chief executive Elyes Mnakbi confirmed during an industry conference in Sharjah this week.

The Tunisian flag-carrier will use the aircraft to develop its long-range network, primarily by launching flights between Tunis and New York JFK Airport.

“We will order six A330neo,” Mnakbi told me at the annual meeting of the Arab Air Carriers’ Organization on Tuesday. “Three will be [delivered] in 2019, and three others in 2020. Maybe three options [will also be agreed].”

The company previously signed for three A330-200s and three A350-800s in 2008, before cancelling the A350 order five years later. Two of the current-generation A330s were then delivered in 2015, while the third commitment was scrapped.


Mnakbi said Tunisair will keep its existing A330s in service until their 12-year leases expire, resulting in a wide-body fleet of eight aircraft by the end of 2020.

The chief executive declined to identify other targets for long-range route development, but said he wants to transform Tunis into a sixth-freedom hub linking poorly-connected African cities with the rest of the world.

“We have a lot of demand from [passengers in] African countries to get them to Tunis, and then to go to other countries in Europe and Montreal,” Mnakbi explained, referring to the flag-carrier’s only existing long-haul destination. “Maybe when we will open New York it will be an opportunity for African people to go there.”

Tunisair already has an outstanding narrow-body order for five A320neos and expects to receive three units in 2019 followed by the final pair in 2020.

Those aircraft will facilitate expansion of the short-haul network, with management aiming to grow their African footprint at a rate of two routes per year.

Cotonou in Benin will become the next addition on December 13th, followed by Douala in Cameroon and N'Djamena in Chad in 2018. The expanding fleet will then be used to open Lagos in Nigeria and Accra in Ghana in 2019, while the targets for 2020 have yet to be decided.

Tunisair is also likely to place an order for “two or three” Bombardier CSeries, Mnakbi confirmed, pending the approval of its government shareholder.

A330-300 P2F is out guys!



Quote:
Toulouse, 1st December, 2017 – DHL Express has become the first operator to take delivery of the A330-300 Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) converted aircraft from Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW), the joint venture between ST Aerospace and Airbus. This delivery, which took place at EFW’s freighter conversion facilities in Dresden, follows the successful completion of test flights in October and awarding of the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in November. DHL Express has firm orders for eight A330-300P2F units in total, with additional options to receive another 10.
