Malaysia Airlines first A359 has rolled out of the Toulouse paint shop and is pretty conventional, despite a lot of rumour it would be something very different.
The airline is set to take delivery of the Aircraft in Mid-December. They begin operating on the Heathrow route from Mid January replacing one A380 and later the second when all 6 are in service. It takes 6 aircraft to operate the twice daily route. The A380’s are being removed to a sub-contract airline owned by Malaysian.
The A359’s will also drop the Malaysian airlines Premium Economy seating.
