The A350 is filling the skies


A short while back, China Airlines took delivery of Airbus' 100th A350XWB. Despite high sales-numbers for their new model aircraft, engines from Pratt & Whitney are still facing reliability issues which the engine manufacturer has introduced fixes for. Many airlines with A350 in their fleet is however still waiting for these improvements to come trhough. As if that wasn’t enough, Airbus have been in hard negotiations with Qatar Airways, which cancelled four orders for the A350.†


China Airlines currently have a fleet of seven A350-900 and by year end, that number will have grown to 10.†
