The Largest Airbus Twin Engine Plane

Measuring nearly 74 metres from nose-to-tail, the A350-1000 is the longest-fuselage version of Airbus’ all-new family of twin-aisle, widebody jetliners.

In a typical three-class configuration, featuring the company’s 18-inch-wide economy class seats for modern comfort, the A350-1000 seats a total of 366 passengers

I was invited by Airbus to Toulouse to have a tour of the Largest Airbus Twin Engine plane.

EFFICIENCY

Powering the A350-1000 will be higher-thrust Trent XWB engines from manufacturer Rolls-Royce. The engine will provide additional payload capability and range, along with 97,000 lbs. of thrust on take-off – making it the most powerful engine ever developed for an Airbus aircraft.
