Does the A321 have a refuelling adapter on the LH wing too.
Also can anyone explain the Chequered marking.

If you mean the dashed lines on the ground, I would guess they have to do with where you are allowed to park ground equipment. Say you are servicing this aircraft. You may not park equipment beyond the line to avoid interfering with the next plane.

Just a guess though.

I know the A340 does, i dont know about the A321 Mel... I'd say more than likely...

On the A319/320s out here.The Refuelling Adapter is On the RH wing LE,in some its optionaly the refuelling panel is near the RH wing root.

That would be the red bordered by White lines.Im referring to the Chequered Black/White line Vertically on RH top corner.

Looks like a ground vehicle limitation line to me.

The checkered line appears to be a variant of the "zipper" road marking, identifying where a service vehicle pathway crosses a taxiway. Notice the two-lane road for vehicles to the right of it, and that the checkerboard starts beyond the aircraft envelope at what seems to be a taxiway.

Sorry, no answer for you regarding the A321. Do a search as I think I remember that subject being brought up not too long ago...

All our fleet of A319/320/321 have refuel adaptors on both wings. The refuel control panel is in the right wing body fairing.
Interestingly our fleet of B767-300 not only have refuel adaptors in each wing, but a full refuel panel as well!. If both are open the left wing one takes control, but you can couple up and control from either wing.
The standard is the Left wing panel, unlike the B757 which has it on the right!. We operate both B757 and B767 and the refuellers are always turning up on the wrong side for a B757.
Never seen this anywhere else. B777 and B747 and L1011 and I suppose most wide bodies have adaptors on each wing, but only one control panel. Right wing on L1011 and left wing on B747 and B777.

Agreed with N8076U. Looks like the edge of the "road".

I've got a question to add, how fast does the A321 fuel?

The A340 is very quick at about 3600 litres per minute per wing which if you have both wings means you can fuel ULTRA quick.

What sort of flow rates do you get when fueling the smaller busses?

On the A320 series, I believe they can be delivered with adapters on both wings. The fuel panel is usually in the right wing to body fairing or alternatively at either adapter location depending on how airlines choose to order it.

What would be the logic of having it on the other [LH] side.Would less cramping during Servicing be one reason.

If you only have one wing, its probably a woman pilot thats left the other one in the hedge back at the last airport.....

Yes, especially on the A319 with containers, there is no room on the Right side for a fuel dispenser and a high löader. The LHS refuelling definitely speeds turnround time.

Quoting Kaddyuk (Reply 8):

About 800litres/min through each adaptor.

Yeah, it always sucks when a joke genre that was once widely enjoyed is now considered off limits because people cant laugh at themselves.

On the A320 series there is also an option for a refuelling panel in the cockpit. A blue light near the refuelling adapter tells the ground staff that the preselection was made from the cockpit.

Normal refuelling adapter is on the right wing, the left hand one is an option.



This job sucks!!! I love this job!!!

also found on the ACJ family...makes it much easier for us fuelers, as we no longer have to concern ourselves with stopping short, rolling over, or getting yelled at for "screwing it all up"

It is fitted to the old BA airbus fleet. The A320-111 and 211.
