Airbus Achieving Key Milestones
Airbus SVP Sales Japan Jean-Pierre Stainnack has key milestones coming up with the delivery of ANA’s first A380 and then JAL’s A350-900s and A350-1000s. These will be the first non-A320 Airbus aircraft based in Japan. Airbus expects more A350-1000 sales as the 777-300ER retires. Airbus believes the slightly smaller size of the A350-1000 compared to the 777-9 makes the A350-1000 more suitable for risk-averse airlines looking for a large twin-jet.
