How many A350s does LH have? How many deliveries will they have this year? Is there a production list of A350s somewhere like the All Things 787 blog? The one I know of hasn't been updated in years... LH has 6 and should get 6 more this year. https://sites.google.com/site/a350xwbproduction/producti...Jump to post

A very nice documentary bye PilotsEye.tv of Lufthansa's first A350 flight from MUC to BOS including many recordings about the A350 production processes/facilities, test center, etc.

Well, 2 planes have been flying everyday for the past 20 days on the Tokyo route. I guess that’s the only judgement we can make about the plane so far. They have already started the flight to Seoul.

I guess there was a time, when worldwide less than 430 airliners where on order. Like in the 1960s. How many 707, DC-8s, 727s, etc. were on order each year? Someone has data on this? Only thing that makes me suspicious is that some news websites said "Indigo group doubles its order". So d...Jump to post
