I am still wonder what is going on with United Airlines' A350XWB order. Currently, they plan to get 35 A350XWB-1000's, but now I've heard UA is reassessing that plan so they convert it back to a fleet of A350XWB-900's, which will be used to replace UA's oldest 777-200/200ER models. Is it possible that UA is bumping up the 777-300ER order from the current 14 planes to as many as 25 planes so it replaces all the 747-400's on transpacific routes?

It's 3-4-3 in Economy (Classe Soleil). At least the pitch is not that bad.
Premium Economy has a 3-3-3 (Classe Caraibes) configuration, which is normal Economy for Qatar, Finnair, Cathay, Lufthansa etc. Though Premium Economy costs twice as much.

Pitch isn't the issue here, how was the width? did you feel comfortable when u sat there?

Oh my. And here I thought the A350 was designed to have 9 abreast be the maximum feasible configuration... for passenger comfort and sanity.

A350 is indeed designed for 3-3-3 configuration. And hopefully most other airlines will keep it that way, but Air Caraibes was the exception. They are first ones (and hope only ones) to adopt the 3-4-3 tight squeeze on board the A350

Unfortunately, the plane was full on all segments. The seat width is a real issue in a 3-4-3 configuration. However, I had the feeling Air Caraibes compensated a bit with seat pitch, it was not Ryanair-like.

Vistara, India rumored to be planning A359 for long haul service launch.

The A350-1000 makes a big splash during certification testing

Can it take up Delta's delivery slot in case DL cancels some orders?

If Delta defers or cancels orders the production slots will be filled up by Airbus of course. It depends on the time frame of these slots if they can be sold directly to a new customer like Vistara. There's a minimum lead time between an order and the 1st delivery. If it's a completely new customer this lead time is longer then when it's a follow-up order by an existing customer. It's also very possible that Airbus moves deliveries forward, opening up later production slots. Then a Vistara could take those, indirectly taking Delta's slots. If there's another airline willing to pay more for these slots they won't go to Vistara at all.

In case of Vistara it's also question if they place an order themselves, they could start with leasing a couple of A350s. It's also possible that Singapore Airlines allocates a couple delivery slots from their large order to Vistara. Like how SIA transferred their original 787 slots to Scoot.

And cabin furniture and seats have proven to be a big problem with the A350 so getting seats/galleys/toilets could be a hassle.

Zodiac are still picking up bad press.

We have been pleased with the response we’ve received to the Economy and Premium Economy experience but the standard of our Business Class seats is not up to expectations. Seat and surface finishing defects have been observed by our customers and it is a priority that we correct these issues as soon as possible.

Our Business Class seat manufacturer, Zodiac Aerospace, has agreed to replace the full set of Business Class seats on those affected aircraft where the defects are most acute. For the remainder of the fleet, we are working with Zodiac Aerospace on quality improvement and we are seeing results from this work. Our teams are working on fixing the issues as soon as possible.

Your sincerely,

Meanwhile that global wide body glut keeps getting gluttier. The last of the 3 major A350 orders in the US, the Delta Order, is not being reviewed too.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...blow-to-airbus

Quote:
The Toulouse, France-based company out-dueled Boeing for Delta’s 50-jet order in 2014 and is slated to begin delivering the first of 25 A350s later this year. They’re intended to replace the Boeing 747 jumbos that once shuttled Delta’s passengers to Asia. The airline has also ordered 25 A330neos, a model that’s yet to fly, as a replacement for its oldest Boeing 767s.
Of all the Wide programs the one that looks most affected is the 777X which ain't selling and is reliant to a huge extent on the fortunes of Emirates.

I don't see any A350 order from Emirates any more...or a 787-10 order in its place. We are now in a global wide glut and not getting stuck with empty wides is the order of the day out to 2020.
