Cathay Pacific has been considering the A350-8000 for routes to Miami and South America. Ivan Chu told Bloomberg that they are considering a smaller aircraft then the 777X due to smaller flight loads.
A350-8000? I thought it was -800. :P
8000? A new plane, yeah!
It was planned to compete with the Boeing 777X. So far no confirmed orders and as it stands its still an idea.
I think the -8000 is going to be the biggest one, to compete with the 777X, but it’s just rumors so far.
Airbus does have the A350-900LR brewing, I can imagine that those upgrades can be migrated over to the -1000.
