So how do we tell this one apart from the A319 with two exit doors unless they are side by side?

Probably the easiest way to identify the EZY A320 over the A19 is the fact the billboard titles on an A319 are sandwiched neatly between the forward and rear doors, basically covering the length of the cabin. The A320 has quite a gap after the forward door before the titles commence and a gap again towards the rear where they stop. This will more than likely be due to the fact that if they were to do the same as on the A319 and fill the window band with the billboard livery, the titles would have had to be taller to balance out th stretch in the wording. As the fuselage diameters are the same, it would have looked quite different.

I thought they were built at both, well i know the EZY 320 was built in XFW. It would be nice to know which ones are built where though.

Easyjet's, Germanwing's and Air Berlin's A319s have two overwing exits due to their higher seat capacities...

Yes, maybe when configured in a two class lay-out or a more generous seat pitch. Here in Europe, The A319 can carry up to 156 passengers, as the U2 A319's do, however due to the higher load, they must have an extra pair of overwing exits. It should also be noted that on U2's A319 that row 26 does not have a window, due to the fact, on most A319's the space this row occupies normally is galley/toilet space.

the A320 has been assembled in XFW for a little while now so the 320 is assembled at either TLS, XFW and now TSN as well for Chinese customers, the A318/A319/A321 remains exclusive to XFW and TSN I think for Chinese customers. The plan is to eventually move all 32S production to XFW and TSN and leave TLS to concentrate on A330/40 A350 and A380 production

if so no they are not. First U2 specified a320s converted from 319 options.

Does anyone know if these a/c will have any form of IFE?

since they will replace the IAE 320s and 321s on the longer routes from LGW MAN

Ironically, this is actually a GB order but U2 defined it's spec. If GB were still around today it would be G-TTOK. Starting from April, the converted 319 orders will begin.

IFE, whilst not 100% certain, will not be fitted to these aircraft. After initially putting in a good effort for IFE on the ex GT fleet, this month see's the ommission of a feature length film and instead short programmes. Rumour has it that this is because there is a more captive audience for sales without the film. I think it's because the new 320's haven't got IFE at all and will eventually become more difficult to show it exclusively on the ex GB fleet when all 320's will be mixed.

Why are EasyJet not just keeping the ex GB ones instead of ordering new ones to replace them?

The GB a/c are not equipped with the same engines as the A319's ordered factory fresh. This difference costs more in engineering. Whilst easyJet have seen the benefit of a larger guage a/c by the acquistion of GB, they would rather have factory fresh a/c built to EZY spec (sounds laughable considering the BA spec on the current one) but in terms of running an airline its all in terms of more flexibility and commonality.

Interior wise the GT cabins are not suitable to LCC operation and are getting quite dirty and worn if truth be told. Everyone just see's the leather seats and thinks "ohh luxury". The EZY spec cabins look so much nicer. Even the seat pitch on the ex GT fleet has decreased, something that was gradually happening long before the Easyjet takeover.

I would understand either a British or Swiss one...

So looks like EZY are ordering A320's too?

Whats going to happen to the BMED ones, they're different types to this new one.

It is still carrying an Airbus registration, therefore it is german registered until just before delivery.
