Congrats to Airbus!
A320/A319/A318 or A321... yea, whatever. Airbus is crying all the way to the bank.
Its a great family of aircraft. I do hope its updated soon or that Airbus takes the bold step to do the A320NG (hopefully CFRP). But hey, I'm in aerospace R&D, so I wouldn't be biased at all wanting more money thrown into a new project. Nope... not at all.
