Japan Airlines received its first Airbus A350 aircraft at Airbus’ headquarters in Toulouse, France.
The delivery was a significant victory for Airbus, as the airline typically uses planes from competitors ATR, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer. Besides this A350, the airline has no other Airbus aircraft types in its fleet.
Japan Airlines ordered 31 A350s from Airbus, including 18 A350-900s and 13 A350-1000s. The A350-900s will be used on high-frequency domestic routes, while the larger A350-1000s will be deployed on long-haul international routes.
The first three planes will have special liveries with the Airbus 350 logo in red (first plane), silver (second) and green (third) to symbolize challenge, innovation and the environment, respectively.
The A350 has 369 seats and will have a three-class configuration with 12 seats in first class, 94 seats in the domestic business-class cabin and 263 economy-class seats. Each seat has a power outlet, USB port and personal monitors. The plane will also have in-flight WiFi.
The plane will fly its inaugural route on the airline’s domestic Tokyo (HND)-Fukuoka (FUK) route, starting Sept. 1. Going forward, it will fly the carrier’s domestic Sapporo (CTS) and Naha (OKA) flights.
All airplane flights begin on the ground. An airport is the starting point, but airspace issues continue to expand from the terrestrial to the aerial. Altitude is no barrier when countries claim sovereignty from the Earth to beyond the stratosphere.
