A350-900 in Lufthansa colours


The Lufthansa Airbus was at the so-called “paint shop” in the Airbus plant in Toulouse for 11 days, and then – the first A350-900 with white Lufthansa paint and blue lettering was ready to go. Thirty people worked on the task, painting a total surface area of around 2,100 square metres. This is the first time that the official identification code D-AIXA has been seen. The use of an “X” follows in the style of the Airbus designation “A350 XWB” (extra wide body) – the cabin width of the A350-900 measures a generous 5.6 metres and gives passengers a great feeling of space. The first 10 Lufthansa Airbus A350-900 aircraft will be stationed in Munich for the coming winter. Delhi and Boston will be the first destinations to be served.
