The Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-powered twinjet is being prepared for delivery to the French flag carrier in the coming weeks. Cirium data shows the airline has 28 A350-900s on order.

As part of a fleet simplification plan unveiled by Air France last month, the new A350 fleet will be operated alongside its existing Airbus A330s with a common type-rating, allowing a single pilot-pool which will improve operational efficiency and reduce costs.
