I think I know why Rolls-Royce is not building the MMA engine: the engine may likely be a scaled up version of the CFM International LEAP or Pratt & Whitney PW1100G engines now flying on the A320neo Family and 737 MAX series of airliners.

The article is slightly bollox, it missed too many key facts. Most people live one or other end of the 'belt' and not half way, therefore Shanghai - Frankfurt is what planes will have to do fairly typically.

So we are looking at something that can do ~6000 NM, with a good MTOW and lots of freight down below, for the core Belt route and Boeing have that already, it is the 787-10.

You won't push the A321LR or XLR to do ~5000NM+ regularly and certainly not with any freight down below although you would avoid the worst of the jetstream on that route.
