Lufthansa has announced that their first A350 successfully completed her maiden flight in Toulouse today.

The maiden flight allowed for flight engineers to test the various systems of the aircraft during the flight to ensure that everything is functioning as designed.   If all goes well with a few more flights, Lufthansa will get the ‘keys’ to the plane on December 19.   Once in Lufthansa’s hands, the plane will be flown to Munich where it will have the interior installed along with some other Lufthansa-specific customizations.

Plans call for the bird to enter service on Lufthansa’s Munich – Delhi route on February 10, 2017.
