Hello, IFC,

Here is an edit I made of an IF A350 IRL. The A350 pic is by @CyrusThePlane101 and the edit is by me.

This will probably be the only United A350 “in the real world” 😂

United actually placed an order for some A350s recently.

Nope, they actually just delayed the delivery by almost five years. I am fairly certain they will do the same thing the other two legacy carriers did…

It will be almost 2 decades since they placed the order to when they received the plane. They placed the orders in 2009 or 2010

They placed them in may of 10, two month before there merger with continental was announced. At that point Continental already had orders for the 787 Dreamliner. United planned to use the A350 to expand its long haul routes (particularly in Asia, and Australia) and to replace 777-200s that would be approaching 20 years old when the first aircraft were due to be delivered. When the airline started taking delivery of 787s they changed there A350 order from the -1000, to the -900, delayed it to 2022, and added 10 aircraft. That was in 2017, now they are using the 787 for both of the A350s intended uses, and have increased the number of 787s ordered a couple of times. And now that the aircraft has been delayed again to 2027, that will be 17 years after they initially ordered it, and by then they will have a significant fleet of the Boeing equivalent. The role the A350 has has been filled at United, so I think they will not take on the aircraft ever personally. It is the same thing that happened at American and Delta. They got both aircraft in mergers, and stuck with the one that was delivered first.

Oh, I was wrong then. Thanks for explaining it!

No problem. I mean never say never. Technically United A350s are still on the books, so still very possible, but given everything around these I doubt they will ever happen…
