Airbus A350 XWB (Airbus A350 XWB) IsA300-A330/A340As a successorAirbusNew generation medium to large size released by the companyWide bodyPassenger plane.

2015 May 1,Qatar AirwaysLaunched World's First Commercial Operation on Doha-Frankfurt Route[2].


Initially, the name of the model that was planned to be developed based on the A330 is "A350The official name of the model that was newly redesigned after the A350 development plan was canceled and is currently in production in 2015 is ".A350 XWB(The transition of the development plan isLater).

It may be reported under the official name in aviation magazines and aviation news sites.[3]However, in general news reports, it is often abbreviated as "A350" to refer to the A350 XWB.[4][5].. Japanese aviation magazine "Airline』(Icarus Publishing) Reporter asked Airbus if it could be abbreviated as "A350", and the Airbus representative said that he wanted the official name "A350 XWB" to be used as much as possible.[6].. However, there are some official materials of Airbus that omit "XWB".[6].

The series name is A350 XWB, but the official names of individual models do not include XWB, such as "A350-900" and "A350-1000".[7].

Initial concept

AirbusA300,A330The successor to our airliner, such as the A330 and more directlyA340Market for large twin-engine aircraft777And new models787Rivals that are sweeping inBoeingAs a competing model of the company, it was trying to develop a new generation medium-sized twin-engine aircraft that "developed an aircraft with performance equal to or better than 787 at a lower cost and easier". This was an early A350 aircraft, but its general features were as follows.

  • A new-generation aircraft based on the A330 with the latest technology
  • Equipped with the same new generation engine installed in the 787
  • A380The width of the cabin has been expanded with a lightweight and thin fuselage that uses the new material used in

This early A350 concept was planned to be a family of three variants.

  • A350-800 Basic type. It has a cruising range of 15,900km and 3 seats in 245 classes.
  • A350-900 A350-800 body extension type. It has a cruising range of 13,900km and 3 seats in 285 classes.
  • A350-1000 A further extension of the A350-900 fuselage.

Airbus had to concentrate its development resources on the A380, which made it difficult to start with a completely new design. The development budget was planned to be about $ 30 to $ 40 billion. However, he indicated his intention to place an order for this aircraft.Singapore Airlines,ILFCDemanded a redesign of the aircraft at the stage of elaborating more design details. The A350 was in a situation where it could be greatly overwhelmed by the number of orders received from its rival 787. This initial concept has been revised several times, looking at customer responses.

  • Stage 1 The main structure of the fuselage is an aluminum alloy equivalent to the A330, and the main wings are mainly composite materials.The engine is RR or GEnX.
  • Stage 2 Changed the main structural material of the fuselage to aluminum-lithium alloy.
  • Stage 3 The frame structure of the fuselage has been changed to increase the inner diameter of the cabin by 7.6 cm (3 inches).This made most of the A330's fuselage assembly jig unusable. It was at this stage that the A350-1000 was added to the lineup.Unlike conventional Airbus wide-body aircraft, the floor surface at the rear end of the cabin has been completely flattened so that the cabin crew rest can be placed under the floor.
  • Stage 4 The nose shape was adjusted to a "cheeky" shape based on the aerodynamic performance of the A380, and the cockpit crew rest was placed under the cockpit floor. The resistance was reduced by sharpening the curve of the front edge of the main wing, and the cruising Mach number was improved from 0.82 to 0.83.

With the above revisions, despite the significant improvement in aircraft performance and economic efficiency compared to the A330, orders were sluggish and manufacturing could not be launched. At this stage, expected development costs had increased to an estimated $ 50 billion.

The early A350 concept was later decided to be developedA330neoWill be taken over by.

Introducing the A350 XWB

The A787 struggled to receive orders compared to the B350, which is steadily increasing the number of orders, but it was held on July 2006, 7.Farnborough AirshowAtAirbus A350 XWB (eXtra Wide Body)It was redesigned and announced as a completely new plan.

  • A300The round body cross section that has been used since then has been discarded, and a thicker double bubble cross section has been adopted. The radius of the cabin of the double bubble is 2.98m,Lockheed L-1011 TristarEqually, economy class can be arranged in 9 rows. The radius of the cargo compartment is 2.82m, which is the same as the conventional Airbus wide-body aircraft, and there is an intention to divert machine tools and jigs as much as possible. In addition, the double bubble structure reduces the weight of the fuselage by reducing the lower half of the fuselage to the minimum cross section that allows two rows of LD3 containers to be loaded.
  • New design, allCompositeHighly efficient main wing made of. The wing area has been expanded from 350 m² for the A361 to 443 m² for the XWB. This value is greater than the Boeing 777's 424 m².
  • More seats and larger loading capacity than the rival 787. Due to the widening of the fuselage, the standard arrangement of economy seats is now 9 rows, which is said to be able to accommodate more passengers. However, in reality, the 787 also has economy seats.Japan AirlinesExcept for the international flight equipment (the company's domestic flight equipment is arranged in 9 rows), it is arranged in 9 rows, and in this case, the capacity is almost determined by the cabin length. With the A350 XWBLow fare airlinesEconomy 10-row seats have been proposed for this. In addition, the expansion of the cabin diameter also brought about an expansion of the space behind the cabin ceiling, and the cockpit crew and cabin crew rest can be installed behind the ceiling. This prevented crew rest equipment from squeezing paid space as with conventional Airbus wide-body aircraft. In addition, there are some aircraft that are not installed with crew rests, such as Japan Airlines' domestic flight equipment.

In addition, the following families of this new plan were announced. Initially, the smallest -800 type was thought to be the basic type, but the intermediate size -900 type is considered to be the basic type based on the development order and derivative development plans.

  • A350-800 Short body type. 3 seats in 270 classes(On May 2016, 5A330The plan was canceled due to the overlap of the aircraft size with the derivative A330-900neo.[8].
  • A350-900 Standard fuselage length format. 3 seats in 314 classes.B777-200ERorB787-9To counter.
  • A350-1000 A350XWB-900 with an extended fuselage. 350 seats scale.B777-300ERorB787-10To counter. This type has a 6-wheel main landing gear to accommodate the increase in maximum takeoff weight.

Each of these basic models had a planned cruising range of 8500nmi (15,800km), but we are seeing some fluctuations as the design progresses. Furthermore, the following are also considered as future plans.

  • A350-900R A350XWB-900 with extended cruising range. Estimated cruising range 9,500nmi (17,600km).
  • A350-900F A350XWB-900Cargo type.. Cargo loading capacity 90t.

In terms of the overall size of these plans, especially the larger aircraft size than the 787 and the active adoption of new technologies, not only the 787 but also one size larger (and Boeing's sole place for now) 777 (-200 ・ -300 ・- It can be seen that the company is aiming for an aircraft that can compete with the 8X) market.Japan Airlines,United airlinesIn fact, some airlines have positioned the A350 as the successor to the 777. Probably because the fuselage diameter becomes wider due to this plan change, the rear fuselage throttle part does not squeeze up to the upper part of the fuselage like the conventional Airbus machine, but also from the upper part to the fuselage center part seen in Boeing machines etc. It has been changed to a squeezing shape. On the other hand, new technologies such as optimizing the lift distribution and improving the lift-drag ratio during cruising by dividing the flap into two parts, inside and outside, and controlling the angle independently during cruising with the droop aileron are also incorporated.

As an on-board engine that requires a larger thrust than the 787,Rolls-Royce TorrentWe have signed a memorandum of understanding to strengthen and supply the 1700.General Electric TheGEnXInstead, you can expect greater thrustGP7200Was planned to be supplied as a derivative of.However, after that, negotiations between GE and Airbus broke down, and as of October 7200, a memorandum of understanding to provide the GEnX enhanced type or GP350 derivative type to the A2008 XWB has not been signed.Therefore, at this time, the engine supply to the A10 XWB is exclusively Rolls-Royce.Behind this is GE monopolizing engine supply and making big profits.Boeing 777-200LRIt is believed that this is due to the direct competition between the / 300ER and the 777-8X, which is planned to be developed in the future, and the A350XWB-900R / 1000. With GEEngine AllianceInvest inPratt & WhitneyHas stated that it is willing to develop a GP7200 derivative for the XWB, but GEnX has priority negotiation rights and will negotiate the provision of the GP7200 for the XWB if GE finally refrains from providing the engine for the XWB. I admit that I can start. In May 2009, GE leaders made a statement to the effect that "if the flight test of the B5 shows the performance of GEnX including fuel efficiency, we will start negotiations with Airbus again." In this case, it is expected that the engine development will be limited to the -787 and -800 types.

Airbus has also announced that it will work with us to develop a better-performing version of the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB, the engine that will be installed on the A350-1000, and equip it with this model.

Orders for A350 XWB

Following the announcement of plans for this Airbus A350 XWBSingapore Airlines 2006 On July 7, it announced the purchase of 21 A350-900 aircraft. December 20, 2006, parent companyAirbus GroupThe board of directors approved the development of this machine. Approximately 100 billionEuroThe breakdown of the estimated development cost sharing was not disclosed.

As of August 2008, 8, the A12 XWB has received final orders for 350 aircraft from 27 companies around the world, and has achieved orders of the same scale as its rival 452. In particular, the development of the 787 was difficult due to insufficient strength of the main wings and an aerial fire during the test flight, and the delivery date was delayed by more than 787 years, so the initial advantages such as the scheduled service time have been almost lost. In addition, there are 3 aircraft for which a formal contract has not been signed but an ordering brief has been issued. On the other hand, there are cases where the order was canceled without shifting the contract from the initial A106 plan to the XWB type like the leasing company GECAS because the installation of the GE engine was postponed.

2013 March 10Japan AirlinesAnd Airbus announced in a joint press release that they have signed a purchase contract for 350 A900-18 aircraft, 350 A1000-13 aircraft, 31 confirmed aircraft, and 25 optional aircraft.[9]This is the first time that Japan Airlines has ordered an Airbus aircraft.[10].. Twenty years have passed since the initial delivery of the aircraft, and it is time to renew the equipment.Boeing 777As a successor2019 We have been introducing the A6-350 for domestic flights since June, and from September 900st of the same year.Haneda-FukuokaStarted service on the line.The first three aircraft delivered to the company (aircraft number: JA3XJ --JA01XJ) are special introduction commemorative painting machines with the letters A03 (the letters are red for challenge JA350XJ, silver for innovation JA01XJ, and JA02XJ.

Airbus's same large twin-engine aircraft seriesA330The A330 is mainly used for medium-haul routes, while the A350 XWB shows its true value on long-haul / ultra-long-haul routes, so airlines use both models properly depending on the route they operate. That will be[18]..Delta owns both an A330neo and an A350 XWB.On the other hand, there is a view that the A350 XWB has high potential even on short-distance routes.However, since the number of takeoffs and landings increases on short-distance routes, the impact on the life of the aircraft becomes a problem.ボーイング社の場合はこの問題を解決するため、本来は中長距離路線の機材となるIn the case of Boeing, in order to solve this problem, it will be originally equipment for medium- and long-haul routes.Boeing 747So, we were developing aircraft (747SR, 747-400D) with specifications specialized for short-distance routes.For the Airbus A350 XWB, after being consulted by Japan Airlines, Airbus conducted an additional fatigue test and confirmed that there is no problem even if the number of flights increased from 28000 without landing gear reinforcement to 32000. ..日本航空の場合はA350 XWBを短距離の国内線と長距離の国際線の両方に導入する方針を示しているJapan Airlines has indicated that it will introduce the AXNUMX XWB on both short-haul domestic and long-haul international flights.[19] [20].

US AirwaysAmerican airlinesBefore the merger, the A350 was ordered, but after the merger, American Airlines canceled all the A350s and instead renewed the aircraft with the B787.[22]

Development of A350 XWB

In September 2007, Airbus announced changes to its structure and some shapes.それによるとこれまでアルミニウム・リチウム合金製とされてきた胴体構造はAccording to it, the fuselage structure that was previously made of aluminum-lithium alloyCarbon fiberThe carbon fiber panel is attached to the frame consisting of the frame ring and the beam of aluminum-lithium alloy, and the carbon fiber usage rate is almost the same as that of the Boeing 787.In addition, the nose shape has been changed from the design at the time of the first announcement of the XWB type in 2006, and it looks like the A380 was attached by cutting the tip of the nose.However, instead of the eight A380 LCD screens, the flight deck has an imaginary drawing that uses six larger LCD screens.

It seems that the size of the fuselage has changed due to these design changes, and the inner diameter of the fuselage in the specifications below is not currently listed in the specifications table on the Airbus website. On January 2009, 1, Airbus held a ceremony to commemorate the start of construction of the final assembly facility for the A14 XWB, where the new appearance was announced.You can refer to it on the company's homepage.

In August 2008, as a result of detailed weight estimation including on-board equipment, it was announced that the operating weight of the -8 aircraft is expected to increase by 900 tons from the previous forecast.At the same time, the maximum takeoff weight of the -2.2 aircraft was revised to 900t.
