A render is pictured perfect, I can live with that when flying a real one.

Wait till it gets painted, they actually never look good while getting assembled in the factory with their green/yellow protective coloring.

Yes I'm sure it will look better with a coat of paint. But it's something about that nose that's not working for me. Not that it makes any difference it's selling pretty well.

No. Most of the structural stuff isn't shown in renders. Like the nose cone, pito tubes, wheel wells, etc., etc. If you remove everything from a render it obviously looks smooth.

Airbus has scheduled its Innovation Days 2013 for June 5-6. Could it be that the A350 Virgin Flight is planned to coincide with this event? I'll be there...

I think a lot of airlines will end up operating both types.

They both fill different niches. It's a deliberate strategy that both companies use. If you want a smaller plane, go for the 787, if you want a bigger plane, go for the A350.


The reason they A350 and the 787 look similar is because the laws of physics are the same both in Seattle and Toulouse.

Since there's a considerable overlap between the A350-800 -900 -1000 models an the 787-8 -9 -10 models it's not a simply a matter of going for a 787 if an airline wants a smaller plane. It's much more a matter of having the right plane for the right routes, not only looking at size but also at range and even specific airport conditions (hot and high airports, etc.).

And with such big backlogs for both types it's also a matter of availability, an airline will get a new very full efficient fleet much faster if they buy both types.

A good case in point is BA which has ordered the 787-8, 787-9 and A350-1000. As far as the overlap area is concerned, they have delivery slots available from both manufacturers allowing them to play the waiting game.

Looks to me like the A380 went on a diet.

*Edit: Any reason to why the A350s (and the A380 for that matter) don't sport those "chevrons" at the back of the engines like those found on the 787 and 747-8? The A380 is a pretty quiet plane without them so are they really needed?

Maybe no because as you said the A380 is very quiet (in fact , the A380 has the quietest cabin in the sky)

Airbus is using a way of reducing noise that does not require the use of chevrons.

As j.a.g.15 said, the A380 is already has the quietest cabin in the sky.
