by Zac George

The French carrier Air Caraïbes has today taken delivery of their brand new A350-900 aircraft in Toulouse, France. The aircraft will start commercial services March 2nd from Paris Orly – Pointe-a-Pitre then Paris Orly – Fort-de-France to follow soon after.

The aircraft looks stunning on the outside, however inside the aircraft is a little bit of a different story…

The airline is the first to have an A350 with 10 across in the Economy cabin. The full layout of the aircraft is 18 in Business, 45 in Premium Economy and 326 in Economy.

The Business cabin is in 2-2-2 configuration, the Premium cabin is 3-3-3 and the economy cabin is in a  3-4-3 configuration.

At this time there aren’t any cabin press photos available so here is a tweet from Karel Souffriau & Bruno Trévidic

The airline is planning to use the A350 alongside their A330’s on French Caribbean routes. The airline also has orders for A350-1000’s which will seat more than 400 once they are delivered.

Premium cabin is 3-3-3, not 2-3-2. So on Air Caraibes, Premium = Regular 😉
