May 16, 2024, © Leeham News: We are doing an article series comparing the capabilities of the Airbus A350-1000 and the Boeing 777X. We have looked at the A350-1000 versus the 777-9 and started comparing the history and capabilities of the 777-8 versus the A350-1000 last week.

Now, we use our Aircraft Performance and Cost Model (APCM) to fly the aircraft on a typical route and compare their performance.

  • The A350-1000 and the latest 777-8 definition is a closer payload-range match than the A350-1000 and 777-9.
  • Passenger and cargo capabilities are similar. The economic comparison will be determined by maintenance costs for the engines.
