For long-range, definitely A330 and 767. But other big planes are good too, like the Tristar (it's really fast) or the Il-62 (it's a 767-200ER in the 80's).

Yeah, I like the looks of the tri-jets. But they are sadly not so economical in AM...

A350 is gonna the BEST aircraft out there when it comes out (hence my username) but for now the beautiful and profitable A330.

I'm slightly worried about the size of the A350. Its more along the lines of the Boeing 777. Aer Lingus ordered quite a number of A350's which will seem to give them a big capacity boost over the A330-200/300. That will work in the summer but the winter they will struggle to fill them, as well as finding routes for the fleet. They only operate 8 A330s at the moment and plan to dispose of one more as the fleet is still too big.

Yes the A350 is a bit large for Aer Lingus they should have ordered the A350-800 as it is a shrink and more towards the size of the A330. The problem with that though is Airbus is not making and optimized wing for the A358 so it won't be as efficient as it could be. I have flown on EI from BOS on both of their A330 types and it was very nice. Now with their new AVOD I look forward to flying with them again.

Airbus on top I guess? :lol: Although the 777 is my personal favorite with those gigantic GE90 engines.

Yup, the A350XWB has been growing steadily since it was announced. The A350-900 is roughly the similar to the 777-200ER, while the A350-1000 will come closer to the 777-300A.

The A350-1000 has LOTS of problems, mainly coming down to the engine. The RR Trent XWB is too small, and RR is reluctant to design a new engine only for the -1000. This will effectively leave most of the market open for the 777-300ER.

The A350-800 is something of an odd-ball, and will ultimately prove to be a rather short and heavy plane with high operating costs. It is simply too fat. It will be slightly smaller than the A330-300 and 787-9. The only real advantage it will have over the 787-9 is that it will have a greater range, and commonality with the other A350 variants.

Aer Lingus should probably have gone for the 787 family instead. The 787-8 is the same size as the A330-200 and the 787-9 is the same size as the A330-300.
