Economy Comfort row with 35 inches pitch (my seat was reserved in this section);

Yes, all the 3 major US airlines have placed large A350 orders.

American Airlines: 22x A350-900 (originally ordered by US Airways)
Delta: 25x A350-900
United Airlines: 35x A350-1000


Hawaiian Airlines had the A350 on order but they converted their order to the A330neo.

CX's new livery really makes the A350 looks like an A320 or something.

The current Cathay fleet is all wide-body. A350 engine is larger than A330.

The single decker with 4 engines is the Airbus A340.

Its production ceased in 2010 after the assembly of MSN1122.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_A340

The A350 and the A330 replaced it in Airbus market offers.
