The launch of the 777X has created a new strategy problem for Airbus because it has no aircraft that would mirror the 777X. Its largest twin, the A350-1000, is about 40 seats smaller. Market analysts differ about what Airbus’s plans should be. And unlike in the case of the A330neo, to build a new twin larger than the A350 would require a multibillion-dollar investment. Given the financial drag that the A380 will create for years to come, it is questionable whether Airbus would take that risk again.
