Airbus' Cabin Vision For A350XWB

A few details emergnig about what the A350XWB cabin will be like, including some features. But no damn pictures! There are still the old A350 type pictures on www.airbus.com to get an idea.

Quote:

The partial "cabin vision" mock-up that Airbus is using as the basis of the A350 XWB's interior is centred on the door two zone. Airbus says the design is intended to give the passenger an immediate impression of spaciousness upon entering the cabin because of the smooth, continuous, integrated design with enhanced lighting.


The cabin will presumeably be like the concept shown last March.

I think its very odd that Airbus chose to show this concept so soon before launching the WXB.

I wonder if BMW will be involved in the interior design as they were originally signed up to help with the XNB?

I think the design concept will be pretty much the same as that shown last March, just larger.


Those Lines remind me of furniture designed by the Architect Zaha Hadid, whom as it happens designed BMWs award winning new factory is Leipizig.

So will Airbus be aiming to have 9 abreast seating in the A350XBW? The model above looks to be the standard 2-4-2 eight abreast, so I'm assuming the XWB will seat 9 across in a 777-type layout?

Yep. Its unlikely any airline would offer 8 abreast in economy on the XWB, it would be too wide. The model above is the first design which was sized on the A330.

I guess it will look very different when it actually gets into service. These artist impressions are always wrong and look nothing like the real thing. If they got an airlines current Y class interior incl the exact colours then it may look more realistic.

Whats the need of having leage doors, its not as if passengers stampede onto the aircraft, unless your on Ryanair (seriously!).

I am referring the the interior at Door 2, not the door itself.  Smile the 747-8I and 787 cabin mock-ups both have large, open areas in the cabin between Doors 2L and 2R to allow easier ingress and egress from Door 2L. I imagine (or at least hope) most airlines will not cram a galley there like they do now, which constricts movement.

This weeks hard-copy Flight International carries a story which says that current -XWB cabin architecture visions are being displayed in an "old" A350 mock-up (as in "narrow"), whilst the factory works on the finishing touches of a true -XWB mock-up, due to be complete in 2-3 months.
I've trawled Flightglobal, but can't find an electronic link. Sorry.

I have to agree with you there. It's a pity this isn't a Boeing concept, then we would all see it as cool, modern, elegant and class-beating

Has any airliner interior mock-up EVER come to fruition? Let's face it: these are intended to put the interior in the most positive light (literally and figuratively), much like home designers are brought in to enhance the appearance of model homes. In real service, the genuine article never looks like nor has the functionality (or should I say "disfunctionality") of the mock-up.

Those intended to be revenue earners (airliners) are usually non-starters, but one-off, private billionaire ego trips stand much, much better chances.
