    The aircraft is scheduled to fly for the first time in spring next year and a handful of Airbus employees will be the first passengers in 'Early Long Flights', which will test the cabin and systems in near realistic operations, ahead of entry-into-service. MSN5 will also be used for route proving flights, says Airbus.
