When traveling on a narrowbody Airbus, the aircraft is referred to as an A318/A319/A320/A321. When flying on the B737, the series, i.e 200-800 is listed.

Does Airbus have different series on the A318-A321 fleet?

There was, very briefly, and A320-100 variant, that had no winglets - they were the first model produced, delivered to AF and B.Cal - 4 or 5 of the ex-B.Cal ones still fly with BA (G-BUSA through F I think it is). There are still some -100's with AF as well, I believe.

I'm pretty sure all the other Airbus narrowbodies start out as -200 series, but there haven't been any -300's.

The A300 had a -600 variant, and the A310 had -200 and -300 variants - the -300 had longer range, I think.

Have to point out A319 started as -100, A321 too started as -100, then -200, then improved high gross weight -200 for the charter market, there were 21 A320-100s built delivered to Air France, Air Inter, and Britsh Airways, BA already took over BCal by the time A320's were delivered, to honour BCAl, Airbus flew the second plane with twin liveries, Air France on one side and BCal on the other.

There are also sub-variants in the Airbus family.

The three digits after the aircraft type (for instance A319-131) indicate configuration differences and engine types. The second digit in the three after the dash indicate type.


For all Airbus aircraft, engine types can be defined by

A3XX-X0X GE CF6

A3XX X1X CFM56

A3XX-X2X Pratt and Whitney JT9D/4000

A3XX-X3X IAE V2500

A3XX-X4X Rolls Royce Trent 700

Nice to see our Egyptian friends chose the Trent for their new A330!

I wish them years fo trouble free operation with that powerplant, and I'll be saying hello to your countrymen this September as I'm coming to Egypt for my holidays this year. Blame Stargate SG!!  Laugh out loud

I seem to remember also that Indian Airlines had some A320s with a different landing gear arrangement....4 tires per strut, as opposed to the standard 2.

Whitehatter, it will be great to have you in Egypt. Where are you going? Cairo, Sharm El Sheikh, Luxor, etc?

p.s. I guess what you mean by Stargate are the Ancient Egyptians?  Big thumbs up
