MSN1: 852hrs (4hrs short) (coming from 10 ahead, maybe I missed a flight? <img border="0" src="/aviation-forums/graphics/smilies/eek.gif" alt="Wow!"/> ) MSN3: 685hrs (9hrs short) (Still about the same, last update was 10.5hrs short) MSN2: 152hrs (3hrs short) (Coming from 2.5 ahead) MSN4: 200hrs (1hr ahead) (Coming from 8 ahead)
Program: 1890hrs (15hrs short)
Don't know where the huge turnaround comes from, maybe I missed a flight or two. Also I tried to be a bit more conservative guessing some of the off block times (Not always showing on FR24) Guess I was being too conservative.... continuing the video:
Next big one should be the BIG RTO done by MSN1 near the end of the flight test campaign

I'm not sure if we are witnessing a production rate increase. We know there was a holdup with no FAL deliveries after MSN7, creating a bottleneck in pre-FAL. It seems the issue has been resolved (whatever it was) and now those frames are being delivered to the FAL shortly after each other.
Adding to what Starbucks has posted, this is what is left to do A350 certification by JKKW, on Flickr Video link, , there's quite a few more recordings from Airbus's innovation days uploaded by Air Insight.
In addition to that
Over 70% of Certification documents have been delivered to EASA
100% planned for the end of summer
Certification for MSN6 has been launched with EASA
