British Airways' first Airbus A350-1000, one of 18 on order, has conducted its maiden flight from Toulouse.

The Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-powered twinjet, MSN326, lifted off on 2 July at about 12:20.

It operated to altitudes of up to 41,000ft during the sortie, which lasted around 6h.

BA stated last year that the aircraft would be fitted with 331 seats across three classes. The first has been due for delivery this month.
