MIA-MAD switched to 350-900

Not sure if it's one of the new planes, but our biz class seats were switched for a flight tomorrow night and paperwork says it's a 350-900. Don't believe Miami has seen one of those to date.

MIA has been seeing A350s semi-regularly since last year, and particularly since November. It's not scheduled to happen, but does happen quite a bit as last minute swaps. In April alone, the daily 6117/8 rotation has seen the A350 12 times. This is the rotation that most often gets the A350, but the earlier one occasionally does too.

Ah, thanks. So not a brand new one. Rats. And now I'm more annoyed about the random seat change since it probably could have been dealt with more equitably.

Aircraft aren't assigned to routes - in other words, just because IB has received a few more A350s, and MIA receiving A350s, doesn't mean that it would necessarily receive the new frames. All A350s, so far, have the same cabin anyway.

It feels like IB has some staff whose responsibility it is to play rough as possible with new deliveries as pretty much all of them feel just slightly scuffed up even when you get one that's only a couple months old

A350 is nice. I fly A330 quite a bit out of ORD. 330’s are getting a bit haggard.

bathrooms are horrible at times.

I am on IB6118 in 2 weeks from now and I do hope we get on the A350. It does appear to be a little better in J than the A330.
