Recognition similarity

  • ICAO Code: A333

    Notes: Similar general shape, although A333 is of a smaller size.

  • ICAO Code: B773

    Notes: Similar shape, except for the nose and the winglets.

  • ICAO Code: A35K

    Notes: A359 is the smaller variant of the A350 family and is supported by two 4-wheel main landing gear trucks (the -1000 has two 6-wheel trucks)

Notes

The A350 was originally conceived in 2004. In 2006, Airbus redesigned the aircraft and renamed it the A350 XWB (for extra wide body). The launch customer for the A350 is Qatar Airways, which ordered 80 aircraft across the three variants. The first flight took place on the 14/06/2013. Total of 203 aircraft delivered (November 2018).
