British Airways is gearing up to take delivery of its seventh Airbus A350 aircraft. As the next aircraft to be delivered, G-XWBG completed a customer acceptance flight from Toulouse yesterday.
Yesterday Airbus revealed that it had delivered 38 passenger aircraft in August 2020, while Boeing delivered four. Due to the current situation, many airlines have been seeking to delay outstanding aircraft deliveries.
