Hey everyone. I've been searching for an answer to my question for a while, and as of yet have been unable to find one, so I thought I'd turn to all of you!! As many of you may know, Boeing uses 'customer numbers' when they give a final model designation to their aircraft when they roll off the line. A few I know are United is 22, NWA:51, AA:23 (Ex: 737-522, 747-451, 757-223). So my question is, is there a published list or anything of all of the customer numbers Boeing has assigned to the different airlines or anything?? Also, does Airbus use a similar method for assigning model numbers to their aircraft or do they have a completely different system?? Thanks!!

Quoting MaxQ2351 (Thread starter):
Also, does Airbus use a similar method for assigning model numbers to their aircraft or do they have a completely different system?? Thanks!!

The last three digits of an Airbus aircraft designate it's MTOW and engine configuration.

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

airbus bases their model numbers on engine type, if i recall

01-10 GE engines
11-20 CFM
21-30 Pratt and Whitney
31-40 IAE
41-50 Rolls Royce



Why are people so against low yields?! If lower yields means more people can travel abroad, i'm all for it
