Airbus has been offering a 575-ton weight option since early 2013. That translates into 8-ton additional payload or 500 naut. mi. more range. Maximum take-off weight is raised by 15 tons, and maximum zero fuel weight and maximum landing weight by 8 tons each. “Further tweaking for the wing twist helps improve aerodynamic flow,” says Executive Vice President Programs, Tom Williams.
