I am getting kinda confused especially with the non-Airbus planes (including A350-1000). Pls Help!!!
These are the abbreviations for the aircraft that you listed.
B737-800 - B738
A320-200 - A320
CRJ-900 - CRJ9
A350-1000 - A350XWB
With most of these, you have B for Boeing, A for Airbus, etc. Then you take the first 2 letters of the model (B73), then you take the variant and put it on the end (B738). If you need any more help, feel free to PM me.
Are you sure the A350-1000 is A390-XWB? Isn’t it A35X
B380-800max XD Jokes aside you don’t abbreviate them really like the A350-900 is the A359 and on the 737’s you just say 738 739 and all…
I think @Balloonchaser is correct about A350XWB
I have seen in Flight Radar
It says A35X
If you are getting these answers from Flightradar, no use for us then. You have your source there then. :)
I’ve always known A350-1000 as A350XWB.
Are you talking about an aircraft’s ICAO? If so, there’s no specific way, but here’s a handy Wikipedia list.
Edit: To answer your question the ICAO for the Airbus A350-1000 is A35K and the IATA is A351.
Thanks soo much everyone. ✈
737-800 = 738
A320-200 = A320
CRJ-900 = CRJ9
A350-1000 = A35K
There you have it.
Nope it only applies to b787-10 and the 777x which is not in IF
it depends. weve all seen the numerous 777 variant codes, because there are quite a few
Please don’t spread this information. The ICAO code of the A350-1000 is A35K as stated above.
@SwissForceProud001 To answer your question, looking at the general trend of how it goes it seems the first letter of the ICAO code would be the manufacturing company’s name’s initial letter. ‘A’ for Airbus and Antonov, and ‘E’ for Embraer, which is followed by 2 numbers which are distinct to the aircraft type and a third number defining the variant. For example, B’74’8 which tells us it’s a Boeing 747, and B74’8’ tells us it’s the -8 variant.
There also exist aircraft like the Concorde whose ICAO code was CONC, and the Lockheed Super Constellation which had an ICAO code of CONI.
However, as others have said, there is no set way to do so because we also see the ICAO codes of the Q400 and its different variants to be DH8A, DH8B, DH8C, and DH8D for the -100, -200, -300, and the -400 variant respectively and not DH81, DH82,…
Boeing 737-800: B738/738
Airbus A320-200: A322/322
Bombardier CRJ-900: CRJ9
Airbus A350-1000: A35X
Airbus A380-800: A388/388
Boeing 777-300ER: B773/773
Boeing 747-400: B744/744
Airbus A330-300: A333/333
Boeing 717-200: B712/712
why does everyone get the A350-1000 wrong??!!
it is not A350XWB. that’s for the entire A350 family.
it is not A35X. i have literally no idea why people would call it that.
the only acceptable abbreviations of it are A351 and A35K. period.
The A350-1000 abbreviation is actually A35K, not A35XWB.
Oops, just saw this now after scrolling down and posting a similar answer like yours. Sorry about that.
Only the 787 when abbreviated can have an “X”,it is the 78X (787-10). The a350-1000 is a35K.
A350-1000 is actually A35K
