The very first livery is a major milestone.
Will nteresting to see if COMAC will make elongated versions wich can carry more passengers.

Yes it is common to make stretch versions with more passenger seating once the flying parameters of the "normal" airframe become established, like the A321 was developed after the A320.

The various B737 versions were also developed after the "normal" B737-100 back in the day to various generations. B737 is in 4th Gen versions now and includes four/five different stretches almost to 757 size - latest is B737-900 flying with Lion Air in Indonesia.

SHANGHAI, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- The first C919 large passenger aircraft was delivered to its first customer, China Eastern Airlines, on Friday. It is the first time ever for China's civil aviation transport market to have an indigenously-developed mainline jetliner.

With registration number B-919A, the aircraft completed its maiden flight from Shanghai Pudong International Airport to Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport during the delivery process.

The 164-seater aircraft comes with a two-class cabin layout, consisting of business class and economy class.

After delivery, it will undergo more than 100 hours of empty aircraft verification test flights, with stops including Shanghai, Beijing, and Guangzhou.

The aircraft is expected to be put into commercial use in the spring of 2023.
