I also think the nose is ugly, it would have been a thousand times better looking something like this:

Some airlines are planning on having 3-4-3 seating arrangements. I won't be flying on those airlines.

It's funny, I don't really like the nose but what I like about it is that it's unique. It will be easy for me to tell it's an A350 by looking at it's funny pointy nose.

Hope the A350 has no big problems and enters service next year (the second semester of the year) with Qatar Airways.

When will we see the construction of that first commercial A350 if it all goes well?

That reminds me of a similar configuration with many other aircraft, especially the B777. Hopefully, the A350 will have a 2-3-2 or 3-3-3 configuration for Y class. I wonder, though, if the A350 can do 3- or 4-class configurations, similar to the B747 and B777.

"The engines are ready and capable to go to their limits from day one, should Airbus choose to do so," says Young. "The program - which we're fully supporting with our initial flight-compliant engines - has a very clear aim to make sure that first flight is prior to the Paris air show."

That's a massive engine, cant stop looking at that image.

The A350 is quite a bit narrower than the 777, it would be awfully tight in 3-4-3 configuration. It will mostly be LCC airlines in that configuration. I think Air Asia is going with it.

3-4-3 is already tight on the 777 so I really can't see it being used on the A350.

Hey guys , how are you?
Today it was spotted at Saint-Nazaire.
image hosted on flickr

I took the picture from flickr and in the description says MSN 3 , but according to Airbus , MSN 3 started final assembly last month https://twitter.com/Airbus/status/304156393940860928 .
So , could it be part of MSN 4 or is part of the test bed?
Regards.

If that's the case, is a 2-3-2 configuration more generous of a configuration? That reminds me of the 2-5-2 configuration with Biman Bangladesh's DC-10s.

Well think again:

Quote:
AirAsia X should receive its first A350, which will have a two-class configuration with 10 seats abreast in economy, in 2015 if there are no delays from Airbus, says Fernandes. The carrier has 10 A350s on order.

Standard configuration will be 3-3-3.

Well 10 abreast would be very tight. B777 cabin width is 5.87m and A350 will be 5.61m according to Wikipedia. So 2.6cm narrower per seat aproximately on a 260mm total reduction in width.

I've been on EKs 777s a few times in economy, and witnessed first hand they're 10 abreast seating.

My honest opinion is that the width is just fine, but what really matters is the pitch/knee leg room they give you before you touch the seat infront. For economy its a comfortable experience, add to that the service, IFE, food, and thats why its a great airline.

It's probably not so bad if you know the person next to you. It could be uncomfortable though if you have an overweight stranger next to you. I avoid flying on 10 abreast 777's & I will definitely avoid flying 10 abreast A350's.

Looks great! Can't wait to see the engines mounted on and the whole aircraft painted.
