March 5, 2018, © Leeham News: Airbus rolled out the first A350-900ULR the other day. The aircraft will be delivered to Singapore Airlines later this year. Singapore Airlines will use the aircraft to reopen the famous 20-hour flight, Singapore-New York. It will also fly to Los Angeles.
Airbus says the aircraft has a range of 9,700nm, but without saying under what conditions. How many passengers can the aircraft take and in what type of seats are these sitting?
