Finnair's A350 interior. Unfortunately it is next "hospital type" interior.

It might have been the bland sight of that Finnair interior that prompted the CEO of Airbus to tell Bloomberg today that he might have some delivery issues with the A350.

Quote:
Cabin suppliers, not all of them, but a majority, are very good at marketing and selling, but less good at designing, and some are even crap at producing
In fact it was the sight of that Finnair interior that kicked him off, did he Finns leave out the coloured 'mood lights' that Qatar have??

Quote:
Airbus is encouraging airlines to stick with trusted producers, said Bregier, who spoke after the handover of an A350 to Finnair Oyj, the new model’s first European operator.

They do incorporate the mood lighting that changes according to time of the day.

VIA Finnair
Finnair uses Zodiac Cirrus III seats on their A350 business class. I believe it was Air France that will be introducing same seats as well.
Design was done by some Finnish studio. They do look boring, but I honestly don't mind. Though it would have been nice to see a Finnair's blue out there. I guess they also hope that Marimekko's blankets and pillows will bring some dash of color out there on business and economy class.

Airbus launches new Ultra-Long Range version of the A350-900

Quote:



Singapore Airlines (SIA) has selected Airbus’ newly launched Ultra-Long Range version of the A350-900 for non-stop flights to the US. Under an amendment to the carrier’s existing order for 63 A350-900s, seven of the aircraft will now be delivered with an Ultra-Long Range capability for flights of up to 19 hours. In addition, the carrier has placed an additional order for four A350-900s, taking its total firm orders for the A350 XWB Family to 67.

Optimised for non-stop flights to the US, the aircraft, designated A350-900ULR (Ultra-Long Range), will ‎include a modified fuel system to increase the fuel carrying capacity, an increase in Maximum Take-Off Weight, plus aerodynamic improvements, enabling service to the US West Coast, as well as to New York.

Representing a distance of some 8,700 nautical miles, the New York service will be the world’s longest commercial passenger route, with an expected flight time of up to 19 hours. Moreover, the unique flexibility offered by the A350 XWB allows operators to reconfigure their A350-900ULR to the standard long-haul A350-900 specification should they require it.

“Our customers have been asking us to re-start non-stop Singapore-US flights and we are pleased that Airbus was able to offer the right aircraft to do so in a commercially viable manner,” said Singapore Airlines CEO Goh Choon Phong. “This is another example of how we strive to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations by remaining at the forefront of product and service innovation in our industry. It will also further strengthen the Singapore hub by providing the fastest and most convenient air connectivity between North America and Southeast Asia.”

“We are excited to be working with Singapore Airlines to re-launch its premium non-stop service to the US,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President & CEO. “The A350 is the perfect, flexible platform for such operations, offering unrivalled operating economics for the very longest routes. And the wider and quieter cabin will provide the perfect environment for passengers to enjoy the world-famous Singapore Airlines in-flight product.”

The all-new A350 XWB entered commercial service earlier this year and features the latest aerodynamic design, carbon fibre fuselage and wings, plus fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines. Together, these latest technologies translate into unrivalled levels of operational efficiency, with a 25 per cent reduction in fuel burn and emissions, and significantly lower maintenance costs.

To date, Airbus has recorded a total of 783 firm orders for the A350 XWB from 41 customers worldwide, already making it one of the most successful widebody aircraft ever. Singapore Airlines is the largest customer for the A350 XWB in East Asia, with deliveries of its 67 aircraft now on order starting in the first quarter of 2016. Deliveries of the carrier’s A350-900ULR aircraft are scheduled to take place in 2018.

Notes for Editors

The A350-900ULR incorporates a number of necessary changes over the standard A350-900. These include a higher capacity fuel system within the existing fuel tanks, increasing fuel carrying capacity from 141,000 litres to 165,000 litres.

The A350-900ULR has an MTOW of 280 tonnes. The extended range capability is achieved without installation of additional fuel tanks and the aircraft can be reconfigured easily to the standard A350-900 long haul specification.

Singapore Airlines previously operated non-stop services from its home base to New York and Los Angeles between 2004 and 2013 using the A340-500.

Singapore Airlines also ordered 4 more A350-900s (presumably the standard version), but as they cancelled 7 a couple of months ago (after a request from Airbus) it's not really an increase of their ordered total.


But who else could be interested in this Ultra-Long Range version?

So Airbus has launched the a350-900ULR with the first delivery to SQ in 2018.

According to Airbus, here are the main differences compared to the standard a350-900:
- MTOW: increased from 268T to 280T
- Range: increased from 7,590 nm to 8,700 nm
- Fuel Capacity: increased from 141,000 l to 165,000 l (a higher capacity fuel system within the existing fuel tanks)
- It's also mentioned that "the aircraft can be reconfigured easily to the standard A350-900 long haul specification"

Together with the launch, Singapore Airlines had placed a top-up order for 4 more frames bringing the total to 67 of which 7 will be of the ULR version.

So additional tanks in cargo area.

But who else could be interested in this Ultra-Long Range version?
As this aircraft will make Southeast Asia - North America flights more economically viable, I believe Thai Airways is interested but they won't place an order until the airline is back in the black.

I also read an article that Vietnam Airlines has been approached by Airbus as VN is keen to start services to North America. They have been in talks with Boeing though over a possible order for the 777-8X. It's a possibility that they will go for the a350-900ULR as it is smaller than the 777-8X.

Who else?
Maybe the ME3 as this aircraft will be capable of doing Middle East-South America non-stop (if I'm not wrong).

So basically, all 777-8X customers/potential customers are also potential customers for the a350-900ULR as I believe it's its closest competitor.

Now, I'm interested to know how well the a350-900ULR performs compared to the 777-8X.

Singapore Airlines announces that Amsterdam will be its first long haul route for the A350 starting in April 2016. They will use KUL and CGK airports as their crew training routes.

Singapore are also getting rid of a third to half of their 777 fleet, reportedly selling the lot to Delta or about to.

Singapore are making no money on European long haul at present...and recently told analysts that their current long haul routes are seemingly all lossmaking since 2009

Or... They will allow to fill the existing tanks with more fuel (maybe by moving some piping? or maybe by just putting the fuel gauge indicating 'full' higher inside the tank?).
Tanks are never 100% full.

Airbus uses the larger A350-1000 fuel tanks for this A350-900ULR version. Plus it's a software and sensors update for the computers running the fuel system, increasing the capacity a bit further.

This means that they do use existing fuel tanks, just not the standard A359 fuel tanks.
