Delta Air Lines has taken delivery of its first A350-900 and will be the first US airline to operate the newest member of Airbus' widebody family.



The A350 XWB will primarily fly transpacific routes starting in October. 
 
Today’s delivery is the first of five A350-900s scheduled for delivery to Delta in 2017. The aircraft features 32 seats in the Delta One cabin, 48 seats in Delta Premium Select and 226 seats in the Main Cabin.
 
The A350 XWB was the first aircraft to incorporate the innovative passenger experience elements collectively known as Airspace by Airbus.

Delta’s customers will enjoy the quietest twin-aisle cabin, with more personal space and the largest overhead bins in the business.

More fresh air, LED ambient lighting and optimisation of cabin pressure, temperature and humidity, are all combined to increase the passengers wellbeing.



The A350 XWB has the latest aerodynamic design, carbon fibre fuselage and wings and fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines. This combination of technologies translates into greater operational efficiency, with a 25% reduction in fuel burn and emissions and significantly lower maintenance costs.
 
Airbus has sar far recorded a total of 847 firm orders for the A350 XWB from 45 customers worldwide.
