Air Caraibes Fleet Airbus A350-900 Details and Pictures. On current fleet, Air Caraibes operates 3 extra wide body aircraft Airbus A350-900.

On 28 February 2017, Air Caraïbes took delivery of its first A350-900 to become the 11th operator worldwide to receive this environmentally-friendly, new-generation widebody aircraft.

It’s also the first French airline to fly the A350, which will operate it alongside the carrier’s current Airbus A330s on routes between Paris Orly Airport (ORY) and the French Caribbean, including destinations like Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport (PTP) in Guadeloupe and Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport (FDF).

The A350 XWB benefits from the latest technological and aerodynamic innovations offering an unprecedented level of operational efficiency while significantly cutting its environmental footprint.

Its fuselage and wings are made of carbon fibre and it is powered by the new-generation Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines.

Air Caraibes Fleet Airbus A350-900 Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout

Air Caraibes Airbus A350-900 aircraft has three classes, with 18 seats in business class (Classe Madras), 45 in premium economy (Classe Caraibes) and 326 in economy (Classe Soleil).

This is the first A350-900 to accommodate 389 passengers, the largest number of seats on this type of plane so far, largely due to the 3-4-3 seating configuration in its economy cabin.

The exceptional comfort and quietness of the ‘Airspace by Airbus’ cabin, combined with its new lighting system – much appreciated by passengers for the way it reduces the effects of jet lag – strengthen the sense of wellbeing and relaxation on long-haul flights.

Business Class (Classe Madras)

The business-class cabin (Classe Madras) is arranged in a 2-2-2 layout, with each seat reclining to a fully-flat position, making this the first airline to offer lie-flat seating between Paris and the Caribbean.

There’s one major disadvantage, though — as with Lufthansa’s A350 business-class seats, these don’t offer passengers direct-aisle access.

Premium Economy (Classe Caraibes)

Air Caraïbes’ new premium economy seats (Classe Caraibes) are arranged in a 3-3-3 configuration, just like you’d see in an A350-900’s economy section, but with a more respectable pitch of 36 inches — the seat width, however, is just 17.3 inches, making it one of the skinniest seats in a premium economy cabin.

In-seat power is provided by both USB and universal power sockets, while moveable headrests can be adjusted for your comfort.

Economy (Classe Soleil)

Economy (Classe Soleil) gets even more snug, with a seating configuration of 3-4-3, a layout that’s typically found in the economy section on other aircraft like the Airbus A380.

Most other airlines opt for the ‘standard comfortable’ seat width of 18 inches — which helps increase the feeling of ‘shoulder space’ while you’re sitting next to another passenger — and include an average seat pitch of around 31-34 inches.

But by installing the extra seat in the middle row of economy on Air Caraïbes’ A350, it’s now the first A350 operator to not have the usual ‘Airbus standard’ 18-inch seat width, instead offering a seat that’s just 16.8 inches wide with 31″ of pitch.

Airbus was able to fit the ‘extra’ seat in the middle row, making it 10-abreast, by reducing the width of the armrests and slightly reducing the width of the aisle.
