Germany’s government will purchase three A350s, with conversion into VIP aircraft completed from 2022.

The A350s will replace A340s, one of which miserably failed while carrying chancellor Angela Merkel to Brazil and compelling her to take a commercial aircraft.

Is it safer to fly the head of state with a "no go" item?

Airbus may open to door to the “A350-2000” now that the A380 is coming to an end, according to an industry analyst. The potential model would be a stretched -1000 with Ultra Fan engines, with EIS around 2025.
