PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus
The previously undisclosed move emerged two days after Boeing
The "regional" version of Europe's newest passenger jet does not involve design changes to the A350, which first flew last week, but it will be offered with lower-thrust Rolls-Royce
"I have a regional version...On the A350-900 there is a regional version with de-rated thrust," Leahy told Reuters.
An Airbus spokeswoman said the regional A350 would "match the payload-range capability of the (Boeing) 787-10".
