Fresh from the Airbus Innovation Days in Toulouse, aviation journalist and storyteller Howard Slutsken joins RGN deputy editor John Walton to talk about what’s new in the world of Airbus, from new faces at the top of the business to new options for the A321neo, new seating for the A350 and much more.
Will Airbus launch the A321XLR, YLR or ZLR at the Paris Air Show next month? Just how rocky is the “rock” and how hard is the “hard place” in the middle of the market? What’s new with the Airbus A220, né Bombardier C Series, and how did Airbus put some Canadian backs up at the Innovation Days?
Will Airbus fold yacht technology back into aviation? What other innovations is the airframer looking at? And will the new 10-abreast A350 configuration with sculpted sidewalls live up to the promises Airbus’ sales supremo Christian Scherer is making?
