The first A350-900 will be ready to deliver in 2018, with delivery of the new A330 Enhanced as early as 2015. In the meantime, cabins in several of the airline’s A330/340s will be upgraded with new seats, including flat seats in Business Class and a new inflight entertainment system. The cabin upgrade is scheduled for completion in 2015.
