“The A350 is a clean-sheet design that has been designed for those long-range flights,” Florent Petteni, Airbus’ aircraft interiors marketing director for the A350.
All A350s share Airbus’ design philosophy that makes the aircraft cabin feel more like a room, rather than a long tube. The plane has high ceilings, sophisticated LED lighting, almost vertical sidewalls and a low noise level.
These features, along with a maximum in-cabin simulated altitude of just 6,000 feet, all combine to provide an improved passenger experience.
“You may not exactly pinpoint why it’s so comfortable and so nice to be flying on this airplane, but everything was done on purpose.”
Rush hour at Munich Airport: An Airbus A350 takes off. The long-range wide-body aircraft of the European aircraft manufacturer is said to declare war on its largest competitor, the American Boeing 787 “Dreamliner”.
Of all commercial aircraft, the A350 has the highest proportion of carbon fiber in the fuselage and wings, thus setting new standards of stability with a high level of comfort. The assembly of the high-flyer takes two and a half months. Can Boeing keep up?
