Next week is going to be very special for Airbus, Singapore Airlines and The Points Guy. TPG and I will be traveling to Toulouse, France to join Singapore for the handoff of an especially notable A350 — Airbus has selected this plane for its 10,000th aircraft delivery, taking place at TLS next Friday. We'll be joining the plane on its delivery flight to Changi Airport, and, a week or so later, it'll head to San Francisco for SQ's inaugural nonstop flight to the US.

Obviously, a 10,000th aircraft delivery is a tremendous milestone for Airbus, which has been churning out airliners since the 70s. And, given that Singapore Airlines was the launch customer for Airbus' largest plane to date — the A380 — it seems fitting that SQ gets to share this honor.

We'll have much more to share beginning next Thursday. Stay tuned for Facebook Live videos, Snapchats, Tweets and Instagram posts (from me, too), along with a whole lot of content on the blog.
