Its present location is irrelevant, its ownership however is. If as previously stated Ethiopian have signed on the dotted line it has been "delivered"

MSN 254 (SQ#30-Regional) out on another test flight #AIB03GK
MSN 259 (ET#10) on its delivery flight as ET9201. #224. #82 of 2018. #1 in December
MSN 261 (MU#2) second test flight #AIB02FO
MSN 268 (CA#7) first flight #AIB01FS
MSN 284 (CA#8) initial engine run

Additionally, MSN 245 (HU#4) was contractually delivered on 11/21. This brings November deliveries to 11 and 2018 deliveries to 81 as of 11/30. MSN 250 (JJ#9) remains undelivered.

For those obsessed with numbers, I am showing 2018 deliveries of up to 94. And this figure is highly contingent on Hong Kong Airlines (not to mention Qatar, LATAM and Air China).

Again. I am showing 317 as ntu. take it for what its worth.

According to my source, MSN 317 is going to LH, being registered D-AIXP, not D-AIXO as listed on sites.google.com. MSN 314 is going to LH as D-AIXO.

How long does it usually take Airbus to complete one A359 from the time it receives the parts to completion?

Please keep this thread on topic, that being on A350 production and delivery, all posts relating to the discussion on the LATAM A359 have been removed and that would be better discussed either in its own thread or in the A350 In Service thread
