Quoting RobK (Reply 5): seeing it a lot further than Africa and the Middle East...
I know, but I presume they'll use ti on routes where there isn't much traffic, such as short connections with in the Gulf... Unless they have particular far destination with low loads, this seems most convinient.
There will come a time when you believe everything is finished - that will be the beginning.

Quoting RobK (Reply 5): This A319 is one of the LR (long range) variants so you could be seeing it a lot further than Africa and the Middle East...
It doesn't have the auxiliary fuel tank and was not one of the ones used for European carrier long haul ops previously. EY will be operating it on GCC routes plus the likes of CAI. Later the type might be used to Moscow, Minsk and possibly Almaty - all of which are planned by EY in late 2008/early 2009.
Two more A320s are due in May too - both ex-IndiGo.
