How far can numbering go until it reaches the border of another?

For example the A320: It's derivatives are A318, A319, A321 and there could be but I don't know, a A322.

Now the A310's derivatives aren't numbered this way, there is no A309 or A311 (I think), so which plane could be an A315?

Boeing seem to have a somewhat convinent form of 7X7-xxx, there can be a 24th derivative of a 737 called 737-2400 if they really needed to, but Airbus is limited by it's choosing.

You see what I'm saying?

There's no problem with Airbus regarding numbering: a good example for this being the A380! Actually Airbus still have A350, A360, A370, and A390 before the series ends. Boeing has 787 and 797 left only.

As far as the A320 family, I don't think there'll be any new derivatives... the available models cover most capacity ranges for short haul, single aisle airplanes.

Don't forget that there are A330-300, A330-200, and possible A330-100, or 500... etc. So don't worry about this  Big grin



A300, A319, A320, A321, A332, A333, A343, A346, A388, B734, B738, B772, B773, F70

Okay I wont  Big thumbs up

Are any airmakers utilizing the alphabet in model names?

There are 26 characters in the english language, 10,000 in mandrin I think.
