surprisingly, this is the the first 1st flight for -900 this month and 2nd in total this month (after BA4)
Kinda make sense to me as there is a bunch of first flights in the later part of November. Airbus definitely tried to get those frames out of the door first.
Its the 19th today and we have 12 days left in the year. Can Airbus get MSN392 delivered this year? Very tight schedule but not impossible in a December like this imo.
Yes maybe. Airbus can concentrate on the finishing touch. No year-end-rush for the A350 this year. There are only 4 A350's with a foreseeable delivery date doing test flights: 356 (QR), 374 (BA), 376 (CZ) and this 392 (AY). And there's a few HU/HX but I suppose they are not in a hurry
