This A350 was probably planned to join Helsinki-New York (JFK) route that Finnair has been forced to operate with a leased B777 in December, letting Qatar to be the first airline to serve New York airport.

The previous A350 (MSN18) was delivered to Finnair on 7/Oct.

 

The end-of the year target to deliver 15 A350s in 2015 is still challenging and there are 3 aircraft to achieve the target.

  4. Seating for Zodiac seems to be the achilles heel of both Boeing and Airbus,both with back deliveries,with Boeing even parking new 787's out in the Moave desert!
    Zodiac must have seen this coming years back and obviously hasn't enough trained staff or facilities, what a mess.What will happen next year for production with Airbus 74 aircraft behind (all types) of last year? Is Zodiac the only seat builder,couldn't some be farmed elsewhere? China comes to mind.
