https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/picture-fiji-airways-to-add-two-a350-900s-to-fleet-457871/

DAE capital will lease two 359s to Fiji Airways.

Since DAE have no 359s on order could these be airfames that were ordered by EY? If yes this is an interesting development, which is positive, putting the ordered frames to good use, not getting cancelation penalties.

I'm wondering if maybe even EK start taking some of these frames if they're really from the EY order.

It seems the DAE 359s could actually be the airfames Hong Kong Airlines didn't take. Still not confirmed, but the seating arrangement is the same.

I have been hungry on Etihad long haul (to US) flights the last 4 times. First was in 2017. Been that way for some time. The second time I only bought the Etihad ticket because it was the only option for the day time I was looking. The food was crap, the little they had, they ran out. The next time the whole flight was only veg, because they think everyone's a Hindu.

Mess of an airline.

It looks like EY sent their first A350-1000 straight Bordeaux for storage. Shame because the airframe looks great in the EY livery.

EY cannot send a plane that is not theirs into storage. This is Airbus who are storing it until it will be delivered to EY on a future date.

That's actually good to hear because it would be a shame not to see this wonderful livery on this superb airfame.

they reduced the order to 20 frames, with 5 to be delivered in the next couple of years.

Most likely the delayed the 1st deliveries when they cancelled the remaining part of their order. They hadn't made any preparations yet for the introduction of the plane like pilot training. They also have yet to reveal the cabin and the routes. It looks like they were actually working on a full cancelation before, that might have been to expensive because of the contracts.

It will take some time before they are ready to take delivery.

Only about 40% of Hindus are vegan. The rest of us eat meat like itís going out of style. Just saying.

The airline even runs out of food in business class... canít imagine what those in economy must go through.

All my Hindu friends eat meat, and all Bengali Indians eat beef too.

It's mostly about the perception that Hindus/Indians eat veg, so they just give veg to the whole plane.

It gets even more complicated.... There are also the Jain meals on flights... followers of Jainism are vegetarian but also don't eat anything that grows under the soil... like potatoes and onions!!

Here is the one from Lufthansa
