Here’s a first look at Japan Airlines’ first Airbus A350, which was rolled out of the paint shop at Toulouse this week.
As we previously reported, the airline’s first four examples of this new member of its fleet will feature special liveries, and even different colours.
This first aircraft, JA01XJ, wears the red livery. It includes large ‘Airbus A350’ titles at the rear of the fuselage.
The aircraft will now proceed to ground and flight tests, before delivery to JAL in early summer.
In total JAL has ordered 31 A350 XWB aircraft, comprising 18 A350-900s and 13 A350-1000s. The A350-900 will initially be operated on major domestic routes, with a three-class configuration seating 369 passengers.
