I'm so looking forward to seeing her complete and how she looks when fully fitted out.

It's funny, I'm not the biggest fan of the new livery, but the a321 is going to look amazing! The Sharklets help it a lot.

Can't wait to see this beauty at JFK and can wait even less to try it out! How MAny times can I say I've flown on an a321 with a smaller economy cabin than some RJs I've been on!

I am genuinely excited about this.

Me too. But if I fly transcon to LAX or SFO from JFK I would still choose to fly on a 767 even if I've already been on it many times. Simply because the 767 will be pulled out of these routes soon. The last 200 leaves the fleet in May of 2014. I can fly on the 321 later, when JFK-LAX and JFK-SFO will both be all A321 in a year from now. I'll get to see those all the time for many years to come if I live in New York.

I have no doubt it will be a great airplane, but I would still choose to fly on a 767 for the reason I explain above.

Thanks KarelXWB for posting the picture. For those who are anxiously waiting to experience flying on this new airplane with American, transcon JFK-LAX service starts in January of 2014.

Great to see, I am extremely excited by this aircraft. It will be fun to fly. What is it 105 seats in three classes on a narrow body? AA is getting creative on a very difficult route and I wish them luck. It keeps the industry on their toes.

Also, agree that the engines look a little petite. The larger engines will help the aesthetics.

No doubt, this illustration says it all:

Isn't the ground clearance of just 46cm a bit of a worry? Especially on take-off and landing? This would increase the risk of scrapes if the pilot pitches the aircraft just a fraction too far.

Oh, I'm not hoping the 777s stop running on MIA-LAX-MIA. Just hoping that these special "JFK-LAX/SFO" A321s at some point replace the 738/757 that they run on the route. The 763s... I avoid them, though if the new J class will match the new 772 J class then I'd be OK with riding their 763 once again.

Quoting Mikey86 (Reply 12):

Pitching up will cause the entire engine to raise further off the ground no matter what the pitch angle is due to it being ahead of the pivot point (main landing gear). The only time it might possibly hit the ground is if they pull a SWA and land nose first or if maybe all the mains are flat and they slam it in. Just depends on the amount of travel there is between the typical compression of the strut and a completely compressed strut (which I don't know the number).

I personally don't like the size increase aesthetically. It looks really close to the fuselage width from the front and appears funny to me. I typically love huge engines too.

The more I see the new livery and logo, the more I like it. Unlike some, I actually think the new livery looks particularly excellent on the A319s. I very much look forward to seeing these A321s - outside and especially inside.

I hope that they will be able to use them all over their system. The looks of the seating is very interesting. Does anybody know if there will be different configurations once they integrate them into the system such as they have with the 757 or is this going to be a standard seating layout?
