When Aeroflot takes delivery of its first Airbus A350 this week, the Russian flag-carrier will also pull back the curtains on an all-new business class suite boasting the mod cons of a 1-2-1 layout, long flat beds and large flat video screens and, yes, sliding privacy doors.

Airbus A350-900 versus Boeing 777-200; 66.80 m: 219 ft 2 in: length: 63.70 m: 209 ft: 64.75 m: 212 ft 5 in: wingspan: 60.90 m: 199 ft 10 in: 443.00 m 2: 4,768 ft 2. The A350-1000 carries 15 fewer passengers in typical configuration than the 777-300ER and while lighter and more fuel-efficient than the 777 (assuming targets are achieved), cargo payload is also somewhat less. This puts Boeing is the position to argue its 777 may cost more to operate but has more revenue-generating capability than the A350-1000. Figure 1: Comparison between the Airbus A350-1000 and the Boeing 777-9X (Source: airbus.com) Airbus made the comparison between the A350-1000 and 777-9X to show they have the lighter air frame.
We're delighted to introduce the Airbus A350-1000 into our fleet. Our newest aircraft arrived in August 2019 beginning long haul service to Dubai and Toronto. Tel Aviv and Bangalore will be added to the flying programme later in 2019/2020.
Our newest aircraft is more environmentally friendly and also the first to premiere our new Club World cabin - Club Suite.
A greener way to fly
The Airbus A350 is one of the most fuel-efficient aircraft operating in the world today. The state-of-the-art aircraft is built from advanced materials. A combination of carbon composites, titanium and modern aluminium alloys delivers environmental benefits such as lower fuel burn and reduced CO2 emissions.
Its nitrogen oxide emissions are nearly a third below the current industry standard, with noise levels also much lower compared to previous generations. It’s a huge leap forward for greener air travel.Making your journey that little bit smoother
- On board Wi-Fi keeps you connected with the world below
- The latest Panasonic entertainment system means you can settle down to that movie you’ve been planning to watch as soon as you get on board
- In the cabin, the A350 promotes a feeling of well-being, space and calm due to reduced noise levels, high ceilings, ambient lighting and an optimised cabin altitude of 6,000ft for a more comfortable journey
- Our new Club Suite debuts on the A350 in business class, featuring all-aisle access, privacy door and a luxurious flat-bed seat

The 'suite' life
We’ve completely reimagined our Club World cabin - the new Club Suite premiers on the A350-1000. Unwind in your own personal space to sit, sleep, work, or relax.
Take advantage of luxurious bedding by The White Company, a new personalised service, and a restaurant style dining experience.
The A350 has a revolutionary adaptive wing design - inspired by birds – which morphs while airborne to achieve maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
At over 240 feet long, the A350-1000 is nearly the length of a football field.
Cabin air in the A350 is renewed every two to three minutes to minimise the effects of jet lag, meaning you arrive at your destination feeling more refreshed than ever.

Where will the A350-1000 fly?
The A350 started long haul service in September 2019, with Dubai and Toronto as the launch routes. Tel Aviv and Bangalore will be the next two destinations to be added to the A350 flying programme, later in the winter 2019/2020 season.
Is It an Airbus or Boeing?
Many of the popular airliners in service worldwide are built by Airbus and Boeing, but telling these manufacturers and models apart can be difficult.
Included on this page is a quick-and-easy, side-by-side identification of the differences between the common Boeing and Airbus jet airliners of the day.
For complete spotting tips on these two leading airplane manufacturers, visit our Boeing Commercial Jet Airliner Spotting Guide and Airbus Commercial Jet Airliner Spotting Guide.
How to tell the difference between Airbus and Boeing Airliners
For starters, Airbus airliners are designated as A3xx models, e.g., A320, A330 and A350. Boeing airliners are numbered in the 7x7 format, like 737, 747 or 787.
Here are some tips on how to distinguish frequently seen airliners from Airbus and Boeing ..

Boeing 767 vs Airbus A330
Two popular wide-body jetliners are similar in overall appearance. The Boeing 767 (top) and Airbus A330 (bottom) are twin-engine, wide-body airliners. The main landing gear on the Boeing 767 lean to the front, while those on the A330 lean to the rear.

New competitors in the wide-body marketplace are the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A350. Their overall appearance is similar. Shown below is a side-by-side comparison highlighting the differences between the Boeing 787 (top) and Airbus A350 (below)
Airbus A380 vs Boeing 747
Boeing and Airbus both feature wide-body jumbo airliners in their product line. Here is a side-by-side view showing how to distinguish the Boeing 747 (top) and Airbus A380 (below).
A Few Notable Differences Between Airbus and Boeing Jet Airliners
The classic Boeing airliner has a 'pointed nose' with a 'V-shaped' windshield
The typical narrow-body Airbus airliner features a 'rounded nose' with windshield straight across the bottom, and the rear with windshield window 'notched'
777 Vs A350 900
But there are always exceptions! Like in the new Airbus A350 and Boeing 787. Shown below is the fuselage nose and windshield configuration of the Airbus A350 (top) and Boeing 787 (bottom).
|Comparison of typical Boeing wide-body tail structure (top) compared with a typical Airbus structure (bottom) which has more of a straight fuselage alignment across the bottom of the tail|
Boeing and Airbus Airliner Operations at Night
While spotting airliners during the day can sometimes be difficult, nighttime air operations make the process even harder.
One way to tell Boeing and Airbus airliners apart at night is by examining the pattern of the white light at the tip of the wing, known as the strobe.
Boeing wing strobe lights flash only once, while Airbus airliners flash twice in rapid succession.
