Oh well. Hopefully this works out nicely-would be a shame if one of these gorgeous aircraft got stuck with a frankly stupid name.

Since the two links airliners net provides are in Chinese, I have no idea what they say. If any folks out there who can read Chinese can pick the correct link to vote from, please comment the link below

Apparently it says choose 3 birds below and post them on facebook and the three with most votes/pictures wins and gets the bird name as the A350’s name.

I’d chose mikado (for those of you into trains :) )

Hey! RENFE here! :)

Unfortunely, not only the name. But, the livery tho. It would become like this
