Airbus is considering building a freighter version of its A330neo, spurred by requests from potential customers Amazon (US) and UPS (US).

Airbus lost a contest to sell its A330neo to American Airlines Group as talks have ended over possible substitute for 22 A350-900s. The carrier appears set to buy more B787-9s.

The losers will be the economy class passengers considered as sardines by Boeing.

Rolls-Royce confirmed that both the Trent 1000 and Trent 7000 engines are affected by durability problems, thus causing issues for not only the B787, but for the A330neo as well.

Rolls-Royce said its Trent 7000 engines which power the A330neo are not affected by the issues with the Trent 1000 engine, as previously reported by the media.

Airbus dismissed concerns about a sharp drop in orders for the A330neo and predicted European widebody demand would start to recover in 2018.

The very first NEO has been delivered to TAP today, so it's ready to enter into service.
I'm flying them next week to MIA. Ah man, could this really happen... ? :P

Not yet ready to enter into service. First it will undergo real life reliability tests:

They can test it with me on board... :D
Nah, it knew it was too good to be true. :(

Well, I keep my hopes on the A333 (retro-livery or Portugal stopover-livery) then...

Airbus faces a logjam of undelivered A330s worth well over US$1 billion for airlines affiliated to HNA Group following a stand-off over late payments.

Rolls-Royce first Trent 7000 production engine was dispatched to the Airbus facility in Toulouse, in readiness to power the A330neo into service. Formal certification of the engine will also follow imminently.

Uganda has become the sole customer for the Airbus A330-800 New Engine Option (Neo) series, which has seen near-zero demand from airlines across the world since it was launched in July 2014.
