British Airways month-old Airbus A350XWB damaged 2nd time

AeroTime Daily News | January 21, 2020
The development of the Boeing 777X, the manufacturer’s first new airliner since the ill-fated 737 MAX, is moving ahead. The first twin-engine jet to be able to carry more than 400 passengers might take to the skies for its maiden flight as soon as the end of the week, media reports indicate. 
When Airbus announced that the days of the A380 production are numbered on February 14, 2019, many questions were raised. One of them was, of course, what would happen with the facilities and employees at Toulouse, France, where the Super Jumbo is assembled.
As the groundings of the 737 MAX continue and cash reserves are draining at Boeing due to the fact that production is still running on other aircraft programs, the company is reportedly seeking to borrow $10 billion or more, according to reports by Reuters, citing sources close to the matter.
British Airways brand-new Airbus A350 XWB, delivered to the operator just in the previous month, was reportedly damaged after a hard landing in Tel Aviv Ben Gurion International Airport, Israel (TLV) on January 19, 2020. Curiously, this is already the second incident in which the month-old aircraft is involved. 
The South African carrier that assured its passengers and stakeholders on January 20, 2020, that its flights continue to operate as normal, on January 21, 2020, canceled domestic and international flights from two of its South African hubs, Johannesburg (JNB) and Cape Town (CPT).
