Its called the A350 . Yea, I am a bit biased towards airbus but they are the better company and they make better planes. Three fleet groups (4 counting A300/310) against Boeing 73,74,75,76,77 and 78. Makes costing easier too! I think that we are both loyal to our countries (continents) manufacturers, which is fair enough as the 'big' airlines do it in real life (thanks to respective government subsidies and tax breaks ON BOTH SIDES)
If I remember correctly, you ran an all Boeing Fleet in the Jet Age game. You called yourself the largest fleet of Boeing 747-200's, isn't that right?
But apen, you need to scratch off the 757 model and early 737's and 747's. Its really the new variants going head to head. Boeing is a bit simpler compared to the variants Airbus has. You have the current generation 737 models (-600, -700, -800, and -900), some 767's, 777's, some 787's and a tad bit of 747's. And if I recall correctly, the Japanese demanded the 747-400D variants.
Back to your main comment, yah I guess we are both biased on our countries manufacturers. To be honest, I love Boeing but I do like Airbus as well. There planes are no joke and I love their level of technology. Don't get me wrong, Boeing is no slouch either, but the A380 is a big win for Airbus and once this is launched in this game, I will be placing a few orders. But till then, I will be waiting for the 777-200LR and the 777-300ER. I will use the 777-300ER to replace the fuel hungry 747 and the 777-200LR to take out the 767's and end "tech stop" routes.
Anybody else want to comment?
