Delta has published a video of its first A350 aircraft being painted in the carrier’s colours, ahead of delivery next month.

The US airline said the aircraft had its first test flight two weeks ago, and will undergo additional flight testing in France before being handed over to Delta in July.

The aircraft is due to enter service on transpacific routes this autumn, and will be the first plane to feature the airline’s new Delta One suites and premium economy cabin.

Delta will be the first US carrier to take delivery of the next-generation Airbus wide-bodied aircraft.
