Looking at our delivery schedule the first of the A319's is due 1H/Jul2013. Just wondering if production has begun in any form for this aircraft? The delivery schedule in the ops website does not specify when production on airframes begin.

To be fair, they have 93, already built, that they will acquire soon
In all seriousness, would it be a better idea for AA to convert some of their later A319 deliveries to A321/320 orders, since they only ordered 11, and will acquire a large number in the merger with US? (assuming the merger goes through) I can't imagine that an additional 11 frames will make that much of a difference. Or are the newer 319's more capable than the ones US already has?
