Finally I like the cathay livery, I don’t know, but I’m like cheating Boeing with Airbus😂 But I like the design of the A350 too.

This was only the first of 2 A350 deliveries today. Singapore Airlines just had their third delivered as well and its on its way to Singapore

Very funny but they don’t look that similar they have similar shapes as that’s what reduces drag, they aren’t going to make it look different for it to be less efficient are they?

That’s a real nice livery. And the A350 is probably my second favorite aircraft. Can’t wait to watch plane spotting videos on it. :)

PS : On that day, Airbus also delivered 9V-SMC (SQ’s 3rd A350)
