i found it a great plane!
Also very good news for airbus! despite the fact that im a boeing fan, i really hate to see what happens in toulouse at the moment. Hope they will catch more orders before years end. KL A330 follow up order is in the pipeline, we just have to wait for the official announce.

Quoting WINGS (Reply 8): Does anyone have a recent break down into the number of A318 sold and how many of these are for the A318 Elite?
Just going by the Airbus website - it reckons that they've sold a total of 90 A318s and I only know of Jet Alliance ordering the Elite - these are their 2nd and 3rd planes. But I'm likely to be wrong - someone please correct me!

Well it looks like I will have to do it my self
A318/A318 Elite Orders
Air France x 18
Comlux x 3 (Elite)
National Air Service x 2 (Elite)
Frontier x 9 (Direct from Airbus)
Gecas x 12 (all delivered and leased to Mexicana x 10 and Frontier x 2)
LAN Airlines x 20 (first with the PW6000)
US Airways x 15 (Interesting to see what happens)
Tarom x 4 (Interesting to see what happens)
Jet Alliance x 3 (Elite)
Private Customes x 6 (Elite)
Total A318 Orders: 92 frames. (Elite = 14 frames)
I remain rather sceptical about US and Tarom taking up their A318 on order, but hopefully this will not be the case.
