Sat Oct 06, 2001 5:43 am

Are they still going to purchase this type??

Will it be used as an exclusively domestic plane?

BA has 12 on firm order. Will be used on some domestic and some intra-Euro from MAN/BHX.

This was the hottest A318/717 contest we've seen.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Considering it offers a reduction in capacity,
this is just what BA wants now.
