Airbus Unveils the A330neo

With the production cancellation of the A350-800XWB, except for those already on order, Airbus Industrie announced this morning at the Farnborough Airshow, that they will be producing the A330-800 and A330-900 featuring the Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engine. Besides the new powerplants, the new A330 will also have A350-like winglets, longer wingspan, LED cabin lighting, and lower fuel burn. The A330-800 will be similar to the current A330-200, and the A330-900 will be similar to the A330-300.
