Interesting...

" In addition to this purchase, LAN's strategic fleet renewal plan involves the sale of five Airbus A318 aircraft in 2011."

It seems that Airbus want to finish 2009 with a nice increase in orders. Once again Airbus strengthens it position in the South American market.

One question remains as if all the 30 planes ordered will be for the A320 or will be broken down for the A318/A319 and hopefully even the A321.

Regards,
Wings

Wings,

I agree with you but may be part of the answer comes from the sale of 5 A318 in 2011 as indicated in the press release.

First I thought that LAN is dumping its A318 fleet, but then I realized that they operate no less than 15 baby-airbusses. So they will apparently keep 10.

Yeah, but one can't help but think that the days of the 318 at LAN are numbered. Maybe MX or BA want them.



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

Speaking about the A318 , Frontier was rumored to send all their A318s for scrapping.
Is the second hand A318 a nightmare finding customers ? Why not to convert them as A318 Elite VIP ?
Hope the Lan A318s will not go to scrapping.
It is also rumored Air France will phase out the A318 out of their fleet as well , and transfer them to Regional or/and Brit Air.

Now confirmed on Airbus's website:

Quote:
LAN Airlines, one of Latin America's leading passenger and cargo airlines, has placed a firm order for the purchase of 30 Airbus Family A320 aircraft. This marks an important milestone raising LAN's total number of firm orders for Airbus aircraft to over 100.

Doesn't clarify any breakdown of models.



Hey AA, the 1960s called. They want their planes back!

Aren't the LAN ones with PW6000s engines? Difficult to remarket them as far as other airline operators are concerned.

I believe MX is very happy with their 318s and use them on their U.S flights frequently. It gives them a lot of flexiblility in their scheduling right size equipment each day. They also do well on longer thin routes where the 319/320/321 are not needed.

I wonder is there any link between this order and the reported order for 52 A320-family acft reported last month; could it be for two different customers - LAN and another customer ordering 22 (or did LAN also take 22 options?)
