AirAsia X may relaunch London in 2017, potentially with ex-SriLankan A350s

Malaysia’s AirAsia X is considering the lease of A350s or 777-300ERs in 2017 to accelerate its return to Europe. A new widebody type will add cost and complexity but is necessary if the medium/long haul low cost airline is to meet its objective of relaunching London as soon as possible.

AirAsia X had been planning to wait until it receives A330-900neos before relaunching London and commencing other European routes. However the airline prefers not to wait until 2H2018, when its A330-900neo deliveries are slated to begin, and using another aircraft type in the interim mitigates the impact of a potential delay with the A330neo variant required for Kuala Lumpur-London.

AirAsia X could also use a new aircraft type – most likely A350-900s – to support new routes to the US. It plans to launch services from Japan to Hawaii in Jun-2017 using A330ceos, but also has longer-term plans for longer routes from Japan to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco – and potentially ultra-long haul routes from Malaysia to the US.

AirAsia X does not currently operate any very long haul routes

AirAsia X has been intending to use A330neos for resuming Europe

Focus shifts to other aircraft capable of operating to Europe sooner

AirAsia X could end up with AerCap A350s initially leased to SriLankan

A350 would be an easier solution operationally than the 777-300ER

A350 could ultimately become a long-term solution for AirAsia X

The A350 could also be used for North American routes

AirAsia X has opportunities but also risks

AirAsia X strategically needs to make a move in Europe - to lead the pack

Kuala Lumpur-London is a challenging route

AirAsia X will need partners to make Europe routes work

2017 may prove to be a critical year for AirAsia X
Look at the date of this article. It's from November 2016.

Those ex-SriLankan planes are already leased to another Airline: Sichuan Airlines.

https://sites.google.com/site/a350xw...roduction-list

Ironically there is an news article older than yours in which it is already mentioned that Sichuan Airlines will take delivery of three A350s from AerCap:

http://www.chinaaviationdaily.com/news/56/56307.html

Well, I am not sure if by that time Sri Lankan already announced that they won't take delivery of those A350s anymore.

Nope. If you see the fuselage and landing gears of A350-1000 carefully, you will notice that its resemblance is built to compete with the B777-300ER.

B777X is longer, has higher capacity. Therefore A350 needs to have a larger version if they decide to compete with 777X. If they go for it, then we can expect 1100 or 2000 version.

Thats not how it works... it has 3 pairs of wheels per landing gear.. just because it´s too heavy for just 2 pairs.... the B777-200 and B777X have 3 pairs of wheels as well... so you don´t have any point... The A350-1000 competes with the B777-300ER just because of it´s size and capabilities

Seemingly Qatar will get some A350s that were to go to new subsidiary LATAM this year. Slot swap I think not additional A350s

I'm quite well aware of both of the aircraft's specifications and capacities, thank you. I think you missed my point actually.

This may be a beauty from the outside, but its economy class inside is gonna be a nightmare...They are installing 10 seats in a row.. and A350 has narrower body than the 777 so imagine how that is gonna feel...
