China Eastern Airlines is ordering 20 units of the Airbus A350XWB or extra wide body which pushes this particular aircraft into the realm that goes beyond 800 units.Here is what the chairman of China Eastern Airlines has to say about this order.
“The introduction of A350XWB will play a very important role in promoting our operational capability, profitability and service brand on our international long haul routes and opening a new chapter in the international development of China Eastern Airlines,”
says Liu Shaoyong.

This order was announced during the Singapore Airshow which was held earlier this year.Here is what John Leah, the Airbus chief operating officer has to say about this.
