Ah yes. That'll teach me not to write posts while navigating busy Paris train stations

Information is usually in financial, not calendar years. It was reported by a poster in the know that by the end of March 2019 we will see SHA-SHH on the books, so 8 A350 regionals. The information related to insurance, however, so it doesn't necessarily mean they will all be in service by then. I guess it's possible that two per month could arrive but it's quite an intensive delivery schedule.

3 more A350-900 Regionals should be delivered before the close of the current Financial Year. 9V-SHC will perform her First Flight this week and should be delivered by the end of Jan. 9V-SHD has just rolled out onto the Flight Line and will commence her Test Flights soon. Delivery should take place in February. 9V-SHE is fully assembled and is currently having her cabin and engines installed. She should be delivered before the end of March.

According the half yearly briefing from September. (Page 27)

They should receive 3 in total, they already have received the first 2, interesting to see if they bring them forward or they just sit on the tarmac in Toulouse until next financial year.

A total of 4 A350-900 Regionals will be delivered in FY 2018/2019, though only 3 will go into service by 31 March 2019. This is according to the SIA Investor Relation Financial Results 2017-2018 (Page 5).
https://www.singaporeair.com/saar5/p...r-q4fy1718.pdf

With 9V-SHA & 9V-SHB already delivered, this means that only 9V-SHC and 9V-SHD are left to be delivered by 31 March 2019 though only 9V-SHC will be entering service in that remaining period. 9V-SHE will be delivered in April 2019. So she will be the one sitting on the tarmac at Toulouse until the start of the next Financial Year.

I recently flew Ethiopian Airlines which also uses Thales entertainment system. I would say it is a huge upgrade from previous versions! It is almost as good as Panasonic now with little crash and fast reaction!

Still haven't seen any A350 new regional business class reviews... or am I missing something?

There's not much you are missing, the seats are the same as what you get on the 787-10, both Y and J. Just the aircraft is different.

Yesterday....

SHC had her 1st CAF
SHD had her 1st flight


On another note, the production list shows SQ's order loaded to their 50th A350. Basis current production rate, that would be delivery thru 2021 delivery.
