Lufthansa, Germany´s flag-carrier has announced the cut of two Airbus 350-900 aircraft from its order in 2013 of 25 A350-900s, the company said.

Lufthansa supplemented this order last year with a deal for another 20. The carrier has reduced its order total from 45 to 43.

It had taken delivery of 15 of the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-powered aircraft by the end of January.

Airbus has newly recorded deals for 10 A350-900s from Air France and a single -900 for Air Lease. These adjustments take the global A350 order total to 935 aircraft, comprising 759 of the -900 and 176 of the larger -1000.
