With 16 orders (from Aeroflot and Asiana Airlines, 8 each), the smaller member of the A350 family has not officially cancelled.


  1. What are you waiting for airbus, its ok to admit defeat, boeing has done it with the 787-3...

  2. Same reason why the Kingfisher orders are still on the books even though their license to operate/fly has expired, thus making them incapable of taking any planes.
