I thought that they converted those into 319's and 320's. Can anyone verify?

Definitely not. If I'm not mistaken, IB took up the A318 order by HP and HP cancelled the A318s and went for more A320s and A319s instead. Those A318s were supposed to be A318-121s with PW engines, but due to the problems with the PW6000, HP deferred them and then converted those orders. IB is getting them with CFM engines though.

There are no
HP 318 orders. As AirTran mentioned, they have all been converted to 319s/320s.
USAir A321 service now departing for SFO with fuel stops in CAK, COS and RNO. Enjoy your flight.

I couldn't see 318's in the US fleet. Doesn't seem to be a good fit considering the arrival of e-Jets, and the general high cost of operation of shrink planes.
