Thai Airways first Airbus A350 moves closer to the flight line as the first plane left the Airbus paint shop in Toulouse. 

Thai Airways have four Airbus A350-900 planes on order – this being the first of them.  The A350s will replace some of the existing Boeing 777-200 fleet.

And Thai Airways purple tail fin looks especially pretty on the Airbus A350 (but then, I’m a sucker for this colour scheme of rich purple… or what some would call Cadbury’s Purple).

Although Thai Airways has  deferred a lot of new aircraft deliveries, it seems a compromise has been reached.

Hopefully, we’ll see this plane in the sky soon, and winging its way over to Asia to operate new services.
