I had the chance to attend the Qatar Airways A350 delivery ceremony in Toulouse a few weeks back, which included a 45 minute media flight. I was curious to see how my impressions of the plane differed when actually flying it on a longer journey. The awesome thing about this experience was that there were a bunch of avgeeks on the plane, so with these flights there's not only the excitement of flying on a new plane, but also the fun of getting to see a bunch of old friends.
