Rumor has it that the A350-1000 will come to HKG via MCT this month. If true, probably a customer tour.

TPE???? I see CI firming their A350 options, and maybe going for the -1000 rather than the -900. When is CI #11 being delivered? Should be any time soon, its at the delivery center. Maybe it and the -1000 will be in TPE for an announcement.

Unknown (Maybe MCT) ------> HKG ------> TPE ------> SIN ------> I don't know yet.
I don't know more detail about it and the above just Rumour i think. Hope that is true. :roll:

A350-1000 Demonstration Tour Middle East Asia Q1 2018.

Mon Jan 29, 2018 10:39 am

Airbus' A350-1000 F-WLXV is embarking on a world promotion tour. They probably be back in 3 weeks. I don't have the exact schedule, but Middle East during the last few days, North East Asia this week, Singapore next week and then down under.

Image

In Doha they were welcomed by the local av geek, Al Baker :hissyfit: , who also is boss of Qatar Airways . QR own A350-1000's are in final stages of completion for delivery soon.

Image

Yesterday a demo flight was completed from Muscat. I guess the flight to HKG / Cathay will be commenced today.

Image

Over the coming week a number of customers (CX, SQ, VN) and airlines Airbus wants to convince (Korean, ANA, Qantas) are visited. No doubt a few boxes of real good wines were checked in at Toulouse.

Indeed. Although the 777-8/9 might also be an option, they have 787-9s and the 773W fleet is still young.

Btw, Al Baker IS an AvGeek, he does the press tour, not Airbus :biggrin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGqLxmQJqG0

According to report from media in Taiwan, the aircraft will fly from Korea to TPE in Jan31 afternoon, then it would perform an hour flight over Taiwan on the next day, and then leave Taiwan for Vietnam that evening, then it would join the Singapore Airshow

At this point India is a fly-over state.

Interesting, given how many 777s service India.

That is odd.

On a separate note, has anyone heard anything about a similar tour on other continents..?

Maybe down to South Africa and to South America as well.

A350s are already operated in and out of India, this is more of a customer tour.

Grrr, I wanted it to come to Saigon! Would have been a good opportunity to spot it. I'll just have to deal with the stubbier beauties. I guess one can dream that VN will order the A35K, but I doubt it. I don't think any orders will be announced on this tour, but it would be a pleasant surprise.

Visited today. Nice aircraft, among others testing the airco / temperature / humidity fluctuations between different zones. SIN is a good place for that.

I have only seen reference to a Qantas & Media demo flight tomorrow (Monday) afternoon departing at 12pm and arriving back around 1:30pm. Would be nice to know if there is indeed an extra flight on today though.

I caught F-WLXV arriving in Auckland from Sydney. What a pretty bird! Unfortunately the light wasn't great thanks to a post sunset arrival.

Fingers crossed that Air New Zealand orders some soon.

I believe one of Airbus's strap lines was that the aircraft could make AKL-New York nonstop. Assuming that's with a decent payload that would be attractive to ANZ.
