Hi all,

Just something odd I noticed is that the A358 seems to be the most popular version of any Airbus widebodies in the game.
With it being cancelled due to lack of demand I am wondering how it is possible that an airplane, deemed by the real market to have more than double the orders of the A359 and almost fourfold over the A351!

Was thinking of posting a bug report, but maybe there is an underlying reason??

Kind regards,

Simple. It's the first one to be released, so people jump on it to secure slots in the production line.

I chose a350-800 because of the following reasons:
1. low fuel consumption compared to the alternatives with that capacity .
2. Slot in replacement for my 777-200ers and some of my 777-200lrs that are under utilized on their current routes.
3. Add capacity to under served routes in asia that are right over the max range of a350-1000, a350-900, 777-200er, 777-300er. 

A general reason is also that most companies wihtin aws tend to keep their fleet commonality much higher  then real life counter parts.

For e.g.  big international airlines like air france, lufthansa, british airways, american airlines and delta all operate at least 6 or seven types.
