Besides the new A318 that is coming out, are there any more airplanes to add to the A320 family?

I doubt they will shrink it any further. I wouldnt mind seeing another stretch though - A322, to compete on the same market as the 753. Then again, that would probably require a whole new wing - the A32x wing looks small enough on the 321... If they did build a new wing, though, it would be nice if they could basically use the same wing on a shortened widebody, for an A310 replacement... Vous m'écoutez à Toulouse?

I won't see a market for the A322, as the 752s market niche is small enough and the a/c is mainly operated by loyal boeing customers.

Large Airbus customers prefer widebodies in the 752/753 segment, which confirms the need for a modern A300/A310 replacment rather than the development of a new wing for a A322 that will only have very limited success on the markets.

I wouldn't mind seeing a widebody in the A320 family to compete with possibly the 767----- this may be a dumb idea since they have enough widebodies for now. I would guess that the A320 family is all grown up. No more babys.

A widebody jet with the capacity of a 752 or 753 in the A320 family would never exist. In the A330 family - maybe.

Jsf119, you're completely right! I did not request an a320series widebody (a dedicated narrowbody family of aircraft), all I wanted to say is that a successor of the A300 would be more successful than another stretched variant of the A320, which would even require major investments, e.g. to develop a new wing.
