Missing Airbus Aircraft
« on: February 09, 2019, 06:29:25 AM »
I've noticed a few missing Airbus aircraft which if added, would greatly increase capabilities of several fleets. A321LR especially would be a very popular aircraft and help phase out the 757 during the 2015-2025 period and increase the abilities of the A320 family fleet. Similar with the A350-900ULR.

- Airbus A310-200/300F (available as conversion)
- Airbus A321LR
- Airbus A330-300F (available as conversion) (Think this one may currently be being worked on? Not sure)
- Airbus A350-900ULR

Yeah, I agree. A321 LR would be particularly useful for thinner routes as an alternative to 737-700ER and as a replacement for B757.

Please consider introducing this and other missing aircraft! :)

Thank you

The A321LR is likely to trip "too small" on many routes that on face of it are "jammy" ;-)

The A350-900ULR is already in the pipeline, hopefully (data has been submitted).
A330-300F as well, iirc.
321LR would go nicely with the 321XLR, wouldn't it?
A310-200/300F, I don't know.

@Simon: yes, but some markets could use it. Sure, it's a niche aircraft, like the 737-700LR, but still interesting.

It might, it might not. More high seat variants of 320 family would help that gradient.

Is "too small" tripped by the average generic fleet size, or the specific operators average fleet size? Meaning if I only use larger variants of a fleet, "too small" would be less of a problem for me than say competitors flying smaller aircraft in the same fleet, A3XX fleet for example,A321 vs A318?

I believe it's an overall average of the type.
