Over the years I have written hundreds of articles on Airbus A350 aircraft, including our experience aboard an Airbus A350 Lufthansa. A350 XWB is one of the most modern long-haul aircraft. The A350 family of aircraft consists of the A350-900, A350-1000, A350-900ULR models. And market rumors are talking about the new Airbus A350-1000ULR, which will be part of the Sunrise Qantas program.
