FAL = final assembly line

after that come painting, outfitting and engines. Not necessarily in this order.

If they don’t have 4 class, then how many classes have they had on their A350s?

Omitted the end part, apologies: first three class birds with their Y+ option, which won't be sold as a separate class.

The modified 777s already have J, W, Y+ and Y. The A350s are currently J, W, Y.

Beautiful airplane and livery :-D


Yes, but it wasn't the first SK bird to take to the air in the new livery. This one https://aibfamily.flights/A320/9312 was, and as it looks right now, it will probably be the first SK bird to do a revenue flight in the new livery. Maybe as early as end next week.

Does anyone have an update on MSN 71, the A350 test frame ear marked for Virgin Atlantic? Is this still heading their way, and if so how far into the rework is it/what tasks need performing prior to it being a VS frame?

you're not incorrect but the first two are leased whereas these are owned. i will admit i'm not entirely consistent when it comes to leases.
