I got a present from a friend of mine. She gave me a safety instruction leaflet which she took from her flight TLV-ZRH. According to the writing on the top right-corner, the flight was performed by an A320E.
I heavn't heared about such a model. Can someone shed light on this matter?


Many thanks,

An225

It is the A320 Enhanced, basically a few minor upgrades to the aircraft to give it better performance.
But it isn't being delivered until....2009? So IDK what your friend was on.

They may have updated the safety cards a bit early.  scratchchin

What can I say. She did tell me she was ill.
But still, I do have the safety card in fron of me - and it says A320E
Swiss web site doesn't says anything about such a model (only A320)
So, again, what do you guys think it is?

The actual Airbus A320E will not be in service for a little while yet, I understand the first of the have only recently been ordered.

This designation would be a company internal customisation of the card, I would suggest it would be say a customisation for the economy seat (life jacket location etc is different to F/J), or it maybe an ETOPS aircraft.

The ETOPS aircraft may have slide/rafts installed with other additional safety equipment over a standard model.

Safety cards are for plane spotters to have a souveneir of their trip. So what if the plane goes down on it's next flight and someone dies? We are men! We must hunt and gather! Especially when the object of our gathering is a small card covered with drawings of hapless victims of airline incompetence!

I have seen quite a few "lettered" safety cards. AFAIK it normally designates the revision of the safety card.
