All three (NTU) Sri Lankan frames (MSN 52/55/60) were still in TLS last Wednesday (18 January) at least...they have been repainted all white as initially they were rolled out with Sri Lankan tails..

Air Asia is drooling over these A350s

http://centreforaviation.com/analysi...n-a350s-315231

AirAsia X may relaunch London in 2017, potentially with ex-SriLankan A350s

Malaysia’s AirAsia X is considering the lease of A350s or 777-300ERs in 2017 to accelerate its return to Europe. A new widebody type will add cost and complexity but is necessary if the medium/long haul low cost airline is to meet its objective of relaunching London as soon as possible.

AirAsia X had been planning to wait until it receives A330-900neos before relaunching London and commencing other European routes. However the airline prefers not to wait until 2H2018, when its A330-900neo deliveries are slated to begin, and using another aircraft type in the interim mitigates the impact of a potential delay with the A330neo variant required for Kuala Lumpur-London.

AirAsia X could also use a new aircraft type – most likely A350-900s – to support new routes to the US. It plans to launch services from Japan to Hawaii in Jun-2017 using A330ceos, but also has longer-term plans for longer routes from Japan to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco – and potentially ultra-long haul routes from Malaysia to the US.

AirAsia X does not currently operate any very long haul routes

AirAsia X has been intending to use A330neos for resuming Europe

Focus shifts to other aircraft capable of operating to Europe sooner

AirAsia X could end up with AerCap A350s initially leased to SriLankan

A350 would be an easier solution operationally than the 777-300ER

A350 could ultimately become a long-term solution for AirAsia X

The A350 could also be used for North American routes

AirAsia X has opportunities but also risks

AirAsia X strategically needs to make a move in Europe - to lead the pack

Kuala Lumpur-London is a challenging route

AirAsia X will need partners to make Europe routes work

2017 may prove to be a critical year for AirAsia X

Look at the date of this article. It's from November 2016.

Those ex-SriLankan planes are already leased to another Airline: Sichuan Airlines.

https://www.planespotters.net/produc...tStatus=future

https://sites.google.com/site/a350xw...roduction-list

Ironically there is an news article older than yours in which it is already mentioned that Sichuan Airlines will take delivery of three A350s from AerCap:

http://www.chinaaviationdaily.com/news/56/56307.html

Well, I am not sure if by that time Sri Lankan already announced that they won't take delivery of those A350s anymore.

Nope. If you see the fuselage and landing gears of A350-1000 carefully, you will notice that its resemblance is built to compete with the B777-300ER.

B777X is longer, has higher capacity. Therefore A350 needs to have a larger version if they decide to compete with 777X. If they go for it, then we can expect 1100 or 2000 version.

Thats not how it works... it has 3 pairs of wheels per landing gear.. just because itīs too heavy for just 2 pairs.... the B777-200 and B777X have 3 pairs of wheels as well... so you donīt have any point... The A350-1000 competes with the B777-300ER just because of itīs size and capabilities

Seemingly Qatar will get some A350s that were to go to new subsidiary LATAM this year. Slot swap I think not additional A350s

I'm quite well aware of both of the aircraft's specifications and capacities, thank you. I think you missed my point actually.
