MSN 220, the 2nd ULR to be built and probably the 1st to be delivered.

SQ A359 ULR Progress Update

Msn216 (1st SQ A359 ULR) is currently in Station 40 of the Final Assembly Line (FAL). This is where the wings, tail cone, vertical tail & horizontal tail are joined to the fuselage. Engine pylons and the main landing gear are also installed here. Interior furnishings including the side walls, overhead compartments, carpets, floor surface and partitions are also installed in Station 40. We should see her emerging from from the FAL something next month. Her first flight is expected in April after which she will undergo further testing and certification before being delivered in October.

Msn220 (2nd SQ A359 ULR) is currently in Station 59 where the different parts of the aircraft are arriving at the FAL. A photo of her fuselage section has been posted by 9V-JKL. Her First Flight is scheduled in June with Delivery in August.

Thanks, 9V-JKL and SQKevin, for the photo and description. You guys are great! Is it my eyes playing tricks on me or is the fuselage really narrow? I know the A350 is narrower than the B777, but it looks overly small. Difficult to imagine fitting in a 2-3-2 configuration here.

Thanks 9V-JKL and SQKevin for the updates on the 359ULR. I wonder what the next reg series will be. Looking forward to more updates and pics.

For the moment the A359ULR is looking for a Sep start-up ... and my bet is that it's back to EWR.

I miss that flight and the days of Exec Econ (but not the space Beds)

Based on an article linked here earlier, LAX is also supposed to start in September
