The airplane was only bought and operated by Air Inter of France. I did get the opportunity to see one in Miami around 1975 while they were on a sales tour. The plane was flown by Eastern Airlines Management pilots and they liked the airplane very much. At that time, Eastern was a big DC-9 operator and really didn't have the need for 2 different airplanes that would basically fly the same routes.
I believe the airplane was powered by JT8D-9 turbofan engines and only about 20 were built.

Ten were built, or was it 12?

Guys.. I know this has been discussed 1000 times over.. but after seeing one in person when i was studying in france back in my college days.. i was convinced i met the A-320's long lost twin... and seeing the CFM-56 powered -200 model really brings it down....


Seperated at birth no doubt:

Flew on one from Gatwick to CDG in the late eighties, just to tick the box. They operated for a while on behalf of Air France. It had a factory fitted HUD.

It seems I have read somewhere that the Mercure and the A-320 shared the exact same fuselage cross section design. Can anybody confirm this?

Thanks,

SLCPilot


yep, if you parked a Mercure next to a Y-10 you'd have a lot of people with no idea what they're looking at  Big grin



I don't like to be fueled by anger, I don't like to be fooled by lust...

Well, if you look at the link I gave above and then go to Airbus.com, you'd see that the Mercure 100 has a cabin width of 3.66 m while the 320's is 3.7 m. Pretty similar, but if you're talking exact...

No data was given for the Mercure 200, so perhaps the 200 is the one that's the same?
