The A350 aircraft will have 28 private suites with full-flat beds in Business, 24 seats in Premium Economy and 264 seats in Economy.

Air India started inducting the A350 planes this year and are being used for domestic flights for crew familiarisation and regulatory compliance purposes.

The airline has placed an order for 40 A350 planes and four of them are in its fleet.

Currently, Air India operates 72 flights a week to Dubai from five Indian cities, of which 32 flights are from Delhi.
