I've been informed Airbus produce exclusively Thales LCD-equipped flightdecks from now on, moving swiftly away from the good ole' CRTs.

Say for the A320s, did they switch directly to LCD equipment from any particular serial, or was it a transitional process?

I can't really answer you question, but I don't think it's exclusively.
For instance NW still gets some analogue instruments in the cockpit even though newer digital ones are available. This is most likely due to spares commonality, so they don't have 2 different items to stock for one fleet.

The same goes for the PTU which as standard (Frisbee [sic]) one type is being fitted, whereas the other manufacturers (Eaton) is still available.

Um... kind of an obscure question but does anyone know what refresh rates these LCD and CRT displays have?

The CRTs operate at 100hz.

Thanks, I figured it was a transitional process due to spares, etc.

Minor modifications are introduced on Airbus from a certain embodiment point, however Airbus introduces larger modifications through aircraft (cabin) versions. So instead of just starting deliveries from a certain date, you start at the beginning of a new airline config/version until all versions have caught up, then its standard from that point on i.e. all pre-configs have been delivered and only new ones are coming along.

The LCD's (EIS-2) are optional, thus it's up to each airline to decide whether they want LCD or not. Airbus wouldn't have had a choice in its method of introduction in this case, as most airlines nowadays want their batches of orders to be similar to the previous batch. The difference between CRT and LCD is too great.
