In addition, visitors will be able to personally experience the cabin benefits of the overall Airbus aircraft families through audiovisual tools.

By offering the widest cross-section in its category, the A350 XWB cabin brings advantages to all passengers. Its straight side-walls provide more room at head and shoulder level. Combined with the optimized seat width, the A350 XWB cabin offers unrivaled comfort for long haul flights in its class. In addition, the larger, pivoting overhead bins enable passengers to easily store their luggage close to their seat.

Airbus offers a range of cabin services on the A350 XWB, which will set new standards, enabling airlines to put tomorrow's In-Flight Entertainment and Broadband Connectivity services at passengers fingertips in all classes. Passengers will be able to connect their personal devices, covering the full range of services. From the airline perspective, the choice in entertainment they will be able to offer their passengers can be broadened thanks to the concurrent provision of easy cabin control, common to all Airbus aircraft.
