Airbus flies new passenger airplane aimed at 'long, thin' routes

The A321XLR believes you're okay with flying for 11 hours in a single-aisle plane.

This week, the European aviation giant successfully flew a new "long, thin" passenger jet

that the world's airlines believe would allow them to create new routes.

The plane is known as the "A321XLR," and it is the most recent addition to the single-aisle, twinjet A320 series.

The "XLR" in the designation refers for "Extra Long Range" – 4,700nm (8,700km) to be exact –

which means the jet can make 11-hour flights from New York to Rome, London to Delhi, or Sydney to Tokyo.
