Here is the press release:

Quote:
The A350 XWB MSN1 has performed well during the first 92 flight test hours already achieved since its maiden flight on June 14th 2013. The A350 XWB flight test campaign will total around 2,500 flight hours with a fleet of five development aircraft.

During the first four weeks of the flight test campaign, ten Airbus experimental test pilots have flown MSN1 and have collectively put the aircraft through its paces to get to know its handling qualities and behaviour. This early phase of test flights has resulted in the clearance of the entire flight envelope and initial testing of all key systems. These include: engines, electrics, Ram Air Turbine (RAT), landing gear and braking, fuel and cabin pressurization as well as a preliminary assessment of the autopilot and auto-land functions. The A350 MSN1 will now undergo routine maintenance and upgrades of its flight test installation to ready it for the second phase of the flight test campaign which will start in August, while the design office will analyse the results of these initial flight tests.

Technically it is an "it" because an airplane is nothing more than a machine. But people attach emotions to machines, give it names and calling it "she" or "he".

The windows are practically the same size as the 787.

I believe the A350 windows are wider but the 787's are taller.

So the 787 windows are actually quite a bit larger overall. Thanks for that!

I'm sure. Almost 2 inches taller is quite a bit when we are talking aircraft windows.
