After JAL declared an interest in the A350, now IAG seem to be close to ordering it.

Google Image search tells me it was the A350XWB 3D simulator at the 2012 Farnborough Airshow.

The picture is an edited version of an upload on the EADS Flickr page.

Looks like the A350 is well on its way to becoming a fully-operational aircraft soon... I then wonder: how many seats will it have in the following configurations:

- mono-class (all Y)
- bi-class (C and Y)
- tri-class (F, C, and Y)

And also, what do you think will be the projected range of the aircraft once it is completed?

Wikipedia and the Airbus website tell the following for the A350-900:

capacity:
3-class: 314
2-class: 315–366
maximum: 475

range:
15.000 km, 8,100 nautical miles,

That range for a 2-engine aircraft is comparable to the 777, if not the 787. And it outperforms the A340 by several hundred miles as well, meaning that Airbus has really outpaced itself in the twin-engine market.

.........and thats just the standard version, the extended version of the 359 will have greater range than the 77L.

Here's my thought, though: with the A350 (especially the A350-900), will the range be longer than that of an A340-500, in which it has been used for many years for the world's longest commercially-scheduled flights (SIN–EWR and SIN–LAX)?

The A350-900 won't match the range of the A340-500. Here are the numbers provided by Airbus:

A340-500: 9,000 nm
A350-900: 8,100 nm

However, Airbus is also studying an A350-900R with an estimated range of 9,500 to 10,300 nm. The A350-900R has not been officially launched yet (and such an launch will depend on the ULH market developments).

Ah I see. If the A350-900R is to be developed, I wouldn't be surprised to see very long flights as Singapore–Sao Paulo, Sydney (or Perth)–London, San Francisco–Mumbai, or other routes not done before. However, it is understandable that an aircraft's increased weight could impact its range performance: I wonder how can that be addressed, especially in the development stage...

With the stubbornly high fuel prices, the A340-500/600 have become gas-guzzlers unfortunately. I think the 777-200LR can stil fly thoses routes profitable but the marges are small. Too small for airlines to invest in brand new 777-200LR aircraft.

ULH routes might become profitable again once both 777-8LX and A350-900R aircraft enter the market but this won't happen until the end of the decade. And it remains to be seen if airlines are willing to invest in those airframes. If airlines decide to stick with layover flights and Airbus can't get enough buyers for the A350-900R, we might never see it being launched.

Anyway, the A350-900R is still far away. Airbus will first have to focus on the -800, -900 and -1000 models.
