Here's the first photo of TACA's first Airbus A321-200!

http://www.skyliner-aviation.de/viewphoto.main?LC=nav2&picid=2270

The delivery is expected to be in September, shame no birds on the side of the fuselage!

Where will TACA use their new A321's to?

Will we ever see long-haul aircraft back in the TACA fleet?

According to Airbus Orders & Deliveries, they have ordered 5 A321's (along with several A320's and A319's). No idea where they will be used though...



Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

Nice to see another c/s on a 321. though the current TACA c/s is pretty wark IMHO. The addition of birds on some of the 320's help's, but they still look pretty bland if you ask me.

Agree, they could use some more of the nice red/dark blue combination on the rest of the fuselage.

But I still like it though!!

Anyway, we are all proud of how far they have gone

It's one of those rainy mornings in GUA that make me feel rather nostalgic... and you come up with this? Come on, you're gonna make me cry!  crying 

Still, you're so right...

A little off-topic, but anyone checked Destination of the Month in www.taca.com?  Wink

Shes beautiful. I agree though that there is too much euro white. Any IFE on board?

Taca will be the first Latin American operator for the A321.

Next Year TAM will be the first South American operator for the A321.

I´ll take it as is. Besides the pride, the 321 is one of my favorite looking planes and this one is going to be my favorite  Smile

TA´s IFE is mostly overhead screens, I haven´t heard anything of new IFE... Their programming really sucks though (Really old movies  old  )

Really off topic, is anybody having internet problems? This is the only pge I can open.

Hi all!

Saw the bird yesterday at XFW while she did a testflight including a go-around and took a couple of pics.

So here they are, especially for MGA and Carmenlu  Wink

Enjoy folks!

If we count BWIA here, they were the first operator of the 321 in the region, back in 1996. Only stayed in the fleet for a few months.

True, but Trinidad and Tobago are not part of Latin America.
As a matter of fact, the Eastern Caribbean region is not considered Latin America, even though it includes Puerto Rico and Dominican Rep.

Is it true they dumped them due to miserable performance? By that its meants they were "miss sold" the plane. Told it will do thing it won't.

Rumour comes from an old BeeWee employee.

I guess when fully loaded it didn't have the range. It seems dumb to get a plane that won't have the range you need. Airbus lie? BWIA was stupid? lol


Then they leased a 737-700 for a few months back in 1999, and then acquired the 737-800s instead.


Hopefully TACA change that plain colorscheme soon, they've had it since 1997, old by todays standards  Smile Again I heard a Miami firm did this livery, instead of going to a of local artist/designer.

Although it is located just off-shore from South America, Trinidad and Tobago is sometimes considered to be part of the North American continent by virtue of its being a Caribbean country. Culturally and historically all Caribbean islands are very close together and all of them are often labeled as North American.

Trinidad and Tobago is considered a Transcontinental nation, which is a country belonging to more than one continent, by not only geographical but also another definitions – divisions can arise for several reasons, be they political, social or geographical.

Geographically, Trinidad and Tobago, Aruba and the Netherland Antilles are regarded as South American islands, but the Caribbean is more often treated as a whole, or all included with North America.

I personally consider Trinidad and Tobago as part of the Caribbean (North America) and not South America. For example, if you look to the soccer continental zones, Trinidad & Tobago are part of the North American zone, but so it is Guyana and Surinam (??), so I guess it is a matter of personal interpretation.
