In conclusion, we can see that Airbus’ main reason for developing the A321LR was to fill the void left by the Boeing 757 and the demand for middle-market jets. The setting was perfect for Airbus to save on costs by using an existing platform that was already incredibly popular with airlines around the world.
Building on the success of the A321LR, we’ll soon see the A321XLR take to the skies and achieve potentially greater levels of success.
