Uganda Airlines is in the exclusive club of having two A330-800neo planes
The Airbus A330-800neo is the European aircraft manufacturer’s worst-selling plane. Only a single order was placed for the mid-size long-haul jet this year. Airbus somehow managed to do this despite having an effective market duopoly with Boeing during a historic shortage of airliners.
The lone A330-800neo was sold to an undisclosed buyer, according to Business Insider. The model has been a dud since it was launched in 2014 due to operating costs. The airliner has only had a dozen orders. Commercial aircraft are designed and produced with a particular market in mind. This particular Airbus was targeted at low-cost airlines flying long-haul routes. Compared to the sister 900neo, the 800neo has prodigious range at the cost of seat capacity.
