A350 Design Changes Again UPDATE 2
Reuters reports this morning that Qatar Airways has signed on to order 80 A350 aircraft from Airbus, deliveries to start in 2013. The order supercedes a 2005 order for 60 A350s of a previous design configuration.
Louis Gallois states that the idea that Qatar may take a position in EADS has nothing to do with the order, and he also said that there were not going to be any design changes to the A350.
The only question to be addressed, therefore, is which A350 did Qatar order?
It's not at all clear that anyone knows at this point.
