Default Airbus launches A321 XLR

Quote:
Following the very positive feedback from the market, Airbus has launched the A321XLR to complement its best-selling A321neo Family. The A321XLR thus becomes the next evolutionary step which responds to market needs for even more range, and creates more value for the airlines by bringing 30% lower fuel burn per seat than previous-generation competitor aircraft. Starting from 2023, the aircraft will deliver an unprecedented Xtra Long Range of up to 4,700nm 15% more than the A321LR and with the same unbeatable fuel efficiency.

With this added range, airlines will be able to operate a lower-cost single-aisle aircraft on longer and less heavily travelled routes many of which can now only be served by larger and less efficient wide-body aircraft. This will enable operators to open new world-wide routes such as India to Europe or China to Australia, as well as further extending the Familys non-stop reach on direct transatlantic flights between continental Europe and the Americas. For passengers, the A321XLRs new Airspace cabin will provide the best travel experience, while offering seats in all classes with the same high-comfort as on long-haul widebody aircraft.

"Positive Feedback from the market" ? More like stock market, can't imagine an 8 hour flight in a single aisle. Economics are great but experience will be poor. Can't image the FA's operating these flight either. Narrow work area - not sure where they can rest etc.

Sighzzz
