Airbus SE’s newest wide-body jet lost more orders as Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. switched a contract for six A350-1000s to the smaller -900 variant and deferred delivery of five more by a year.

The model switch, announced by Asia’s biggest carrier on Wednesday, follows a decision last week at United Airlines to swap an order for 35 A350-1000s to 45 -900s, a move that increased the overall value of the deal but took a large bite out of the bigger jet’s backlog.
