Airbus Explores Options For Higher-Capacity A350 Cabin Layout
Airbus is holding “very preliminary“ talks with some of its A350 customers about a ten-abreast configuration in economy class.
The denser layout would allow the manufacturer to add around 25-30 seats and raise overall capacity of the A350-900 to nearly 350 seats.
“For now only a small number of customers is interested, but this will increase undoubtedly as the aircraft matures,” Airbus Cabin Marketing Manager Claire Newcombe said on the sidelines of the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany.
