New York (AirGuide - Airline & Travel News) Mon, Jan 27, 2014 - According to an Airbus executive, it's a "distinct possibility" that Airbus could design the smallest of its three A350 versions to have 300 seats. If that happens, the entry date for the -800 model would be delayed from 2016 to 2020. If Airbus stretches the -1000 further, which John Leahy, COO of Customers says it is considering, that project likely would take priority over the lower end of the A350 family spectrum to compete the Boeing 777X.
