The titles are an awkward size. They should either shrink it to fit above the window line or go with larger billboard titles. And slide the blue back towards the actual leading edge of the tail. There's too much of it and it makes the plane look too stubby.

I see that 319 doesnt have a US Reg. Will it get one? or is allegiant doing what Sun Country does with their 738's?

The only planes SY has flown with foreign regs are the peak season leases from carriers like Transavia. Their entire full time fleet are all N registered in the US.

What happened to the tail? The yellow and red need to be reversed, and the sunrays are anything but symetrical. Too much blue on the @$$-end, it should be brought back so the diagonal slices through the door. I understand the need to fit the titles between the door and the emergency exit, but they need to scale back the blue on the rear of the plane. In this case, white engines would balance the look much better than the blue...

I think the poster meant that in the picture it appears that the nose cone is missing, which is the first thing I noticed as well.

It's bearing the registration of its previous operator, easyJet Switzerland. It probably won't be re-registered until it is delivered.

From what I have heard they are buying all of Cebu Pacfics A319, so I do not think this is temporary.

There was a thread about easyjet USA being rumoured with allegiant being the host airline.
Is there any evidence to support this or was there purchase of these a/c just the basis ?

Silly question, but I have seen Allegiant use they stairs built into the plane at RAP. Will they have to plan their cities based on this capability for the Airbuses? Or is the cost of using ground stairs at airports negligible? I'm sure it doesn't outweigh the fuel savings, but I just never thought about the stairs until now. It was a nice feature to fly around with for an airline that flies to hole in the wall airports and rarely uses jetways.

It was revealed several months back when they were hiring for an Airbus fleet director. Then they announced they would start buying A319s. Right now they will maintain the MD80 fleet and most of these will be growth aircraft.

MIA on G4? Doubt it.
