According to the European airplane manufacturer Airbus, their new A350 XWB plane is more fuel efficient and can carry more passengers (350 vs 250) than its American counterpart, the Boeing Dreamliner. It flew today for the first time in Toulouse, France.

Of course, a test flight is just a test flight. The Dreamliner was been plagued with delays and problems since it began. It's yet to be seen when the A350 XWB hits production and how well it will work when companies start to deploy it.
