Hi friends!

When will we see the A318 in each european airport for testing and so long?
Any idea when it will come to MAD?

Many thanks

Maybe if Air France put the A318 in some routes to Madrid or Barcelona, but I doubt that because Air France operates to Spain A320, A321 and 737-500. And from Lyon and the anothers regional hub the flights are operated by regional aircraft.

And Iberia why not introduce the A318 in Spain?.

That thing's so small! It's a "MicroBus"! I can see how it's good for some routes and things, but I just can't get over how small it is for a "commercial jetliner," not a "regional jetliner."

I disagree! The A318, with it's long range, does not really qualify as a regional jet!
Next flight.... who knows.
