We saw in the first article the A330-900 251t is now a credible long-range aircraft, including the long hop over the Pacific ocean. When to use the A330-900 or the A350-900? We analyze their economics and where one is to prefer to the other for long-range operations.
The Airbus A330-900 in its 251t version can serve many US to Asia routes that were reserved for the A350-900 before.
We check if the economics support replacing the A350-900 with the A330-900 for these routes.
