We have seen many photos of this aircraft before.. nonetheless, after 7 months since its maiden flight, the Airbus A350 XWB was brought to the Singapore Air Show last February 10 for us to behold and experience – live!
Oh, could it board that many people on the photo? Well, it’s a pretty large plane that carries from 276 to 369 passengers depending on its variant. After all, XWB means “extra wide body.”
Anyway, as a passenger, what would you want in plane? Is that a question? Comfort and safety, of course, aside from other amenities.
Well, see the plane’s interior? Appealing, eh? That’s the passenger cabin, soon to come though.
Hmm… ever wondered how its flight deck is? Ah, certainly pretty much the same – just like lavatories. Whoa!? Still, what’s more important is some space to stretch and easy to locate controls for the pilots – not to mention, more advanced features.
By the way, this plane uses 25% less fuel compared to the planes we know. That’s good.. just make sure we reach our destination – safe, sound and on time.
Yet, in the end, what good would fuel efficiency do to us if air fares increase citing a more advanced aircraft that we board?
