I heard that Airbus will make a new 80 seater aircraft, the A 317. Is this true??

I read this on this forum as well and looking at the Airbus website I can tell you that there is nothing on the A317.

I do remember reading about it before the A318 was final. There was the A317 and A316 I know one of them was a 100 seater and it was supposed to be 2x3 unlike the rest of the A320 family but I guess they decided to keep it in the family as the A318 we all know.

A317? Not yet, at a least not that I know of...

Hopes this helps.

Why don't they leave this market to Dornier and CRJ, both of whom build very competent aircraft? I love the CRJ 700/900.

The 316 and 317 were the designations for the ac's to be produced in China by Airbus and Chinese manufacturers in a joint venture. This whole project was scrapped some years ago. They were to be five abreast, low wing ac, looking much like the 320, but smaller and with a narrower body and less powerfull engines. Seating capacity about 80 to 120 pax.

But I saw on Justplanes' daily news, they said that Air Canada is going to be the launch customer for A317, the 80 seater aircraft. If they don't have it, how can AC order it?

Well, looks like Airbus is trying to build an aircraft to fit every need. What's next??? An A152 two seater? Gimme a break!

You never know! Antonov build the World's largest cargo aircraft. They also manufacture a microlight.

I have never had such a good laugh in all my life as the one I had looking at that picture of the A317  )  )  )

Airbus vs. Boeing animosities aside, this plane is simply ridiculous!

The CRJ/ERJ are much sexier and practical for this market.

That picture looks good, but the longer, more narrow looking A321 looks better!!!

There are rumours going round that a A322 might be launched as an 310 replacement. But a shortened 330-200 (then called 330-100) is still in the race.

An A322 is an excellent idea but the A321 seems overstretched as it is......

Many airlines (especially Lufthansa) may not order the A330-200 precisely because it is too big for their needs. Perhaps an A330-100 would be a more practical, wide-body solution.

As it stands now, airlines must choose between the 767 and new A300's or A310's (production lines soon to close). Airbus should move to close the gap as soon as possible.

JustPlanes.com is reporting that Air Canada could be a launch customer for the A317. That seems strange. They're a large customer of Canada's Bombardier Canadair regional jet. I thought Bombardier was developing a larger capacity version of it. Seems like Air Canada would want to support its hometown (Montreal) and home country manufacturer. Hmmm....maybe we can end the endless Amercia (Boeing) vs. Europe (Airbus) debates and begin a Canada vs. Europe debate  .
