Some pictures I took at Paris Air Show 2011.

We can see a bed for the crew.

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.
I think people fail to notice the width because of a combination of alright leg room and the fact that people are engrossed in the entertainment system!

Just beautiful, I reserve the right to comment on the nose thing until it's fully painted, it does look a bit pointy though.

How boring would it be, if all new airplaines would look the same way? I like the design!

If the nose looks like a scale model, will look beautiful.

Is it just me, or the 380's tail is smaller than the 787?

A350's winglets look more "shark" than A320's sharklets.

The swept angle of the wings looks bigger than in other aircraft (i.e. the angle between the fuselage forward of the wing and the wing itself)

The winglet sweeps 5.2m from its leading-edge attachment to its rear tip.

the swept angle is in fact larger than it was with previous Airbus models. They had to increase that angle so that the plane can fly as fast as the B787 (if it ever flies again :P ). The previous A350 design would have had the same swept angle as the A330. That was one of the many complaints about the first design.

What about this?
"TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan Airlines Co <9201.T> may buy about 20 A350 jets from Airbus (EAD.PA) for around 400 billion yen ($4.23 billion), the Nikkei daily reported on Sunday, a move that would reduce its reliance on Boeing (BA.N).
The Japanese carrier is considering using A350-1000 jets on flights to Europe and the United States to replace its Boeing 777 jets, and is set to make a final decision on the purchase by around June, the newspaper said, without citing sources."

That would be a big slap in the face for Boeing.

With the Paris Air Show this year, Airbus will be going all out to secure a high profile order for the A350. Especially as the first prototype could put in a personal appearance.

That would be indeed a huge surprise considering that Japanese carriers have to far only purchased Boeing widebodies.

"Airbus has installed on the first flight-test A350 XWB (MSN001) its two flight-ready Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines and is also installing the new Honeywell HGT1700 auxiliary power unit (APU) at Airbus’ production facilities in Toulouse (France)."
