Irregularities on the surface coating of a QA350-900 reg. A7-ALL.
The 4.3 years old Airbus A350-900 suffered some irregularities on the surface coating. The aircraft (reg. A7-ALL, MSN 036) was supposed to be painted in FIFA World Cup 2022 livery at IAC Shannon.
Whilst undergoing a repaint at Shannon, Qatar Airways’ Airbus A350-900 aircraft was observed to have some irregularities on the surface coating.
The issue is superficial / cosmetic and only visible when the top coat of paint is stripped. It is not a structural composite issue.
The A350 will be ferried to TLS in the coming days for Airbus to inspect the issue and to be painted there.
