(Going off on a tangent)
Well wouldn't that cannibalise the sales of the A330neo? The A359 is a bigger 78J with more range while the A35K is basically a new 77W.
The modern Airbus range is basically managing to fill up all of the current markets, from the A321neoLR which mostly solves the problem with the 752 replacements to the A330-800/900 then the A350-900/1000. The only gap is between the A35K and the A388, which however cannot be considered much of a gap considering that the 748 fills it, and we all know how much it's sold...
Anyways, it would be good to see the A350 in IF, as much as I would like to see a A330 rework and a A330neo.
