Before Boeing adjusted all the maximum ranges of all their models earlier this year the -1000 had about the same range as the -300ER. Boeing made this adjustment to better reflect the real-life operational performance of their planes. This makes it difficult to actually compare the planes just based on these specifications provided by the manufactures, it's not clear if they measure the max range the same way.

As for the A350-1000 being or not being the perfect 777-300ER replacement. I don't think it's a matter of range, even with the given specs they are still in the same league on that front. It's much more a matter of capacity. The A350-1000 compared to a 9-abreast 777 is pretty much the same size. But the -1000 compared to a 10-abreast 777 it's a different ball game, the 777 is then suddenly significantly larger. With more and more 777-300ER operators going for 10-abreast seating it's going to interesting to see how they are going to replace them in the future. As most of these 777s are still very young this replacement cycle will only fully start up well into the 2020s. This is also one of the reasons why the A350-1000 hasn't been as popular as the A350-900 yet in terms of orders.

I suppose that's what Boeing is hoping for with the 777-8X/9X: airlines replacing their older 777-300's with those planes 8-15 years or so from now.

A351 looks great. I agree it looks sleeker and therefore smaller than a 777-300ER. I think the 777-300ER conveys sheer 'mass', the cabin being about 20cm wider and a good 15% heavier. Still like the 777-300ER form factor though.

Airbus’s flight-test programme for the A350-1000 will stretch to 1,600h, split almost evenly between the three test aircraft.

I've read rumours that IAG were thinking of swapping EI's a350s for a330neos. I hope not, I'd like to see Aer Lingus grow their services out of Dublin. Of course not all of their long haul routes will require an aircraft as big as an A350, but I'd assume that Boston, New York and Chicago could fill one.

I'm not surprised Aer Lingus might switch to the A330neo--probably the A330-900neo. Aer Lingus' primary transatlantic routes from Dublin--Boston, New York City and Chicago--are well within the range of the A330-900neo.

Aer Lingus are in IAG and it looks like Iberia will get most of the Aer Lingus order for 9 A350s see this in depth analysis and the table of a/c. Some may be deferred into the 2020s

http://centreforaviation.com/analysi...-target-312849

Iberia will accelerate a340 retirements out to 2020 with them.

I reckon AL will get 2 A350s at most, maybe 3.

My guess is that IAG will transfer all of Aer Lingus' A350XWB-900's order to Iberia, which will allow Ibera to completely retire their aging A340 fleet earlier. And in turn, Aer Lingus gets 9 to 10 new production A330-900neo's, aimed primarily for transatlantic service.

Not that simple. AL were to lease these A/C from Aercap (who own the 2 Sri Lankan whitetails in TLS). It cost Sri Lanka over $40m a frame to exit the lease. On those numbers it would cost IAG $400m to exit the AL order completely so that won't happen I think.

I suspect that parts of the Iberia/IAG A350 order will be delayed and the AL order will go thru on schedule but the AL frames will mainly deploy to Iberia later this decade.

In any event IAG are keeping their 777s and 747s in service until 2020, completing their 787 order on schedule ( those are all BA planes ) and will delay their A350 deliveries out beyond 2020 if they find themselves over capacity owing to that plan. They are mainly taking A330s as planned, group wide.

Oh and Aercap also need to find a home for 3 Sri Lankan planes MSNs 52 55 and 60 which are parked up in TLS for now.

The Air Sri Lanka deal was a very late exit, when the frames were already in produced or in production. Which made it much more difficult to find a new customer for these planes. Therefor AerCap could ask for such a large amount as part of an exit deal. If the deliveries are further out AerCap don't have to do this. They might even be grateful as it opens opportunities to place these frames with another airline for a better price.
