Insider: Have a Sneak Peek of Airbus’ New 900Neo Wide-Body Airliner!
Do you love booking flights to travel the world? Well, get ready for a thrilling adventure as this new Airbus 900neo might be landing at the airport gates soon!
The Latest Wide-Body, Long-haul Airliner
The latest model airline model of Airbus, A330-900neo, is set to improve the route flights in the United States with its state-of-the-art features like a new engine, reimagined cabin, and wing redesign. Last Friday, the said jet flew from Chicago to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.
The 900neo is a new airline variant of the Airbus A330 family with an astounding 287 seats composed of three-class configuration and long-haul, twin-engine jets designed to cater to long overnight flights. The new variant has 10 more seats available compared to its earlier models. And the Airbus family was kind enough to give their passengers a sizzling sneak peek on what you could expect for this innovative airline!
What to Expect in the New Plane?
According to the sources and media personnel who boarded the plane, the first thing they noticed was the attractive LED lighting installed inside. Its interior colors offer millions of lighting options depending on your mood. New and bigger seats were also noticed as well as the bigger overhead luggage bins that can accommodate bigger bags.
The cabin design, also known as Airspace, is designed with straight lines. According to Roser Roca-Toha, the Airbus Interiors Marketing Director, the straight lines give the feeling of maximizing the volume and space of the cabin. Moreover, it represents a nice and tidy ambiance, the same thing when you see your kitchen at home. They intended using the uninterrupted space so that the passengers will feel comfortable, feel like they have vast space around them when boarding.
The big rows of seats also offer some functionality features to make the passengers more comfortable when sitting, according to Roca-Toha. For example, the tiny step-up holes let the passenger reach the overhead bins with ease. The passengers can also adjust the hide-away tray tables and seat-backs as they wish. The taller passengers won’t be sitting in an awkward position anymore, thanks to their adjustable headrests.
The first class seats were laid out with 1-2-1 configuration with 78-inch-lie flats with 20 inch wide measurements. While the economy class only has 18-inch seat width arranged in a 2-4-2 layout. You wouldn’t get bored staying in the lavatory anymore since it’s now equipped with calm lighting, air refreshing scents, anti-bacterial surfaces, and music!
Most of all, the latest Airbus model wasn’t only made to show off his design. According to its flight test engineer, they’ve been gathering data on cabin ventilation, airflow, and engine efficiency to test the effectiveness of the new aircraft to comply with the guidelines set by aviation regulators.
This means that this aircraft model uses a Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines which they claim to burn less fuel than its previous models. Also, the brand new wing has a longer wingspan of 13 feet and was optimized from root to tip. Its wingtip is equipped with unique curved sharklets to help save the fuel for A330-900neo. The winglets help slice through the air and cut the wind resistance that builds up to the jetliner’s wings, causing the aircraft to utilize lesser fuel than before.
The A330-900neo model that was used in touring was owned by TAP Air Portugal. The said airline already ordered a total of 21 A3300neos, and seven of them are expected to be delivered in the second half of 2018. Meanwhile, the Airbus website revealed they currently had 224 pending orders for A330-900neo.
Even the Delta Air Lines ordered the new aircraft model to replace the old Boeing 767s and Boeing 747s models. Suffice to say, you’ll be seeing these planes in Europe by the end of the year and the rest of the world may follow soon.
