Does anyone know if any of the A320 family(319,320,321) have been certified for ETOPS? I know that Aloha uses 737-700 on flights to the mainland. I'm sure they have the range for over water flights since JetBlue uses 320's from JFK to the westcoast as well as America West using 320's to PHX and LAS.

On the Airbus homepage ( http://www.airbus.com ) you can find a special ETOPS-page in the A330/340-section. Here Airbus points out that "all wide-bodied Airbus twins (A300-600, A310 and A330) are type-certificated to 180 minutes and all A320 Family aircraft to 120 minutes."

Continental flies 757s into AMS as well (at least on some flights, they also use 767s).
Some time ago I saw a Canada3000 A32x at AMS. Probably rented to someone else, but I never saw her again after that, only A330s

We at C3000 used the A320 from YYZ-CPH with a tech. stop in KEF. The aircraft were certified to 138 mins. ETOPS. This is the longest ever given for the A320. The route was dropped 3yrs ago and the ETOPS was not maintained on our aircraft. We will soon take delivery of 9 319's the second group of 3 to arrive spring '02 will be extended range. Looks like we will be ETOPS once again on the narrow body fleet...possibly YVR-HNL.

I think Air Na'Uru runs 737's from Australia to Na'Uru, which is quite a ways overwater, how much I'm not sure, though. A brief digression: the island is an atoll made up of thousands of years of birdshit that has transformed into phosphates that have been so heavily mined that a) the residents have only a quarter of the island left to live on, and are considering leaving and b) they have the highest per capita income of any nation in the world.
Bizarre story for the day!
It is not enough to be rude; one must also be incorrect.
