Comfort and range
The A350-800 is the shortest fuselage version in Airbus’ new A350 XWB all-new family of mid-sized widebody airliners. It accommodates 280 passengers in a typical three-class cabin, with a flight range of 8,200 nautical miles.
A shortened variant of the family’s retains maximum commonality with the family’s other versions, with the same cross section, cockpit and pilot type rating – along with common engines, systems, operating and maintenance procedures.
Its extra widebody 221-inch interior cross-section is six inches larger than the nearest competitor. This provides the additional space for integrating innovative premium class solutions at up to six- or seven-abreast seating, while providing airlines with the advantage of comfortably accommodating economy class passengers at eight-, nine- or 10-abreast arrangements.
