Air Europa finalized its launch order for 10 A350-800s plus two options. The Spanish carrier became the first airline to commit to the aircraft when it signed an MOU with Airbus at the end of 2004 (ATWOnline, Dec. 22, 2004). It also will lease three A350s from GECAS. The A350-800s, scheduled for delivery between 2010 and 2012, will be used for transatlantic service, be powered by GEnx-1As and seat 253 passengers in a two-class configuration.
