Just had an agent's news bulletin from VS saying their first A350 will be named " Red Velvet ".


Thanks for that information. Is the aircraft to be painted in a new or updated livery or will it wear the current (787) livery?

Thanks,

Is there anything different technically about the regional variants or is just SQ’s different config?

SQ's A359 Regional have a lower 250t MTOW and its engines are derated to 75K lbs thrust.

Thanks for all contributors' hard work to keep this thread going.

Worth-noting, Singapore Airlines is half way through their order of 67. So does Qatar. Amazing! Love both A350 and B787!

Does anybody know when and why Asiana's A350-900 orders reduced down to 19 from 21?
Airbus' official document also shows 28 total frames, down from 30 (21 -900, 9 -1000).

Folks, again the question. Is it now confirmed that the Frames JAL will receive will be delivered as "942" ? Would be very interesting to see the technical specs.

Both are the first version for the operator. The cabin install always takes longer on these frames.

I was in TLS 2 weeks ago and frames from both operators were parked up near the A380 area with no work ongoing. The VS example has engines. It seems complete but delivery is not for a bit yet, so I guess just waiting.

BA is on track and is planned for July delivery. Everything is proceeding according to the build plan.

Not sure about the VS one as it seems like this should be further ahead of BA but it appears that the delivery will be around the same time as BA or possibly later. Any idea when the actual delivery is planned for VS?

Is F-WZHF one of the domestic A350-942 frames?

I notice the TCDS was updated on 3 April, but it as yet still does not show the A350-942 nor Weight Variant 017 (210,000kg MTOW) which is believed to be the one for -942.
