My Opinion

Infinite Flight lacks the China Southern livery as this airline it is a very integral part of China’s Air transport system. The livery also fits the A350 really well. If you would like to see this airline livery for the A350 in Infinite Flight, be sure to hit that big blue vote button in the top left corner of your screen and reply saying that you voted to keep this topic within the ranks. If you can’t vote, your support for this would still be greatly appreciated and I hope you can free up a vote and place one here.

That’s all for now :)

I’m surprised there wasn’t already a feature request for this (I looked). It’s a beautiful aircraft, but unfortunately I’m out of votes.

Well if it’s not already requested, this bird is quite nice, however I can’t see myself freeing up a vote for it unfortunately. Great work with the topic though!

Ahhh ok sorry bout that

I flew on China southern’s a330 business which is similar and It’s actually not that bad despite the picture making it seem not enclosed.

Thanks for the votes everybody! Let’s get this request to at least 20 votes.

F-WZGP (B-308T) has set off on its maiden flight! 😀 Hopefully, this is one of the many liveries already designed for the Airbus A350-900. It would be nice to have this as one of the big three Chinese carriers.

Keep The Votes Coming!
