Default Airbus A350-1000 Early Long Flight

Airbus recently did a 12 hour test flight of the A350-1000, which included a full load of pax (Many were Airbus employees) and Virgin Atlantic cabin crew.

A video of this flight can be found here.

Is that real champagne at 1:37?

I would argue that to make testing as realistic as possible, the catering should include a full bar...

Yah...Airbus PR did a nice job producing a video documenting this stage of testing!

Don't recall Boeing ever doing a video of long flight cabin testing, although they do lots of videos of aircract production and test/display flights, including the a jawdropping 789 display at the Paris Airshow in 2015.

The only peeve I have is how unbiased, honest and real are the feedback from Airbus's own staff. They should get critiques from flight warrior OCDs like us.
