Hoped Airbus nocked on wood before they started talking about how well everything is going with the A350 program because there is time for the whole thing to blow up in Airbus's face. Not literally. Just a couple of delays is all I mean.

Airbus itself isn't saying much. It's the media and people on forums observing the test flights who concluded everything is going smooth.

They do retract the landing gear during the first flight. But it it is left extended for a lot longer than on ordinarily flights.

This is because the landing gear can effect the stability of the flight and when a new model takes off for the very first time, they want to make sure it actually flies properly before they do anything which could put the flight at risk.

The 1st deliveries of both the A350 and the A320neo have not taken place yet.

1st deliveries:
A350: Qatar Airways - mid 2014
A320neo: AirAsia or Virgin America - October 2015

AisAsia was the 1st airline that took delivery of the A320 with sharklets on the wing tips, but that's not yet the neo since it still has the old engines.

I'm curious as to whether the idea to first develop the A350-9 before the -8 was a deliberate move by Airbus or has been their plan all along. I would have loved to see Boeing's 787-8 go head to head with the A350-8 sooner than later.

The direct competitor of the A350-800 is the 787-9.

------------- vs. 787-8
A350-800 vs. 787-9
A350-900 vs. 787-10
A350-1000 vs. ---------

How does the 350-1000 compare against the 777-200 and 300?

The A350-1000 is a 777-300 competitor.

And with the 777X the A350-1000 will go against the 777-8X. The 777-9X will be again one step bigger then the A350-1000.

This just size, when it comes to economics only the 10 abreast version of the 777X, even the -9X should be able to compete with the A350.

I suspect nearly all airlines will go for 10 abreast in the 777X.

At 9 abreast, I don't think the 777X will be able to beat the A350 (even though it's longer). Since it's old tech and a metal plane, it'd need to use both more seats and longer length to beat the A350. I wonder if Airbus will be able to fit 10 abreast in the A350. That'd be interesting.

They are offering it in a 10 abreast layout, but it is extremely tight. Air Asia X is going to have it in this layout.
