What Will the First A350 Cabin Look Like?

Qatar Airways may be the first airline due to receive the A350, but it will not be the first cabin to see the light of day.

Airbus will have two cabin-equipped A350s as part of the flight test program. The set-up: 42 business class seats and 210 economy class seats.

But it will be some time before any of those materialize.

 

Airbus has just mated the fuselage of the first A350, the static test aircraft, which is now moving to Station 40 for wing mating.
