BMI A319 Delivery Date?

Sun Jun 01, 2003 5:53 pm

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone out there had any information regarding the delivery date of the first BMI A319 and the routes it may operate?

Your input would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Paul.

Hi Paul,

bmi don't have any A319s on order. Their outstanding orders are for 2 A320s and 1 A321. All three are to be leased from ILFC.

Cheers

I'm sure they had at least 1 A319 on order, but havent heard much more for ages.

Never heard anything about BMI and the A319. I know they have some airbus jets on order, but I don't think it's the 319.

Just checked a website and it says:

Aircraft On Order:

Registration: G-MIDN
Aircraft Type: Airbus A319
Delivery date: 2004

Don't know if that is 100% true but that is what it says.

Airbus site says:

bmi british midland: A319's on order: 0
A320's on order: 2
A321's on order: 1

Finally asked the question then Paul!

According to this years "Airlines" theres 1 on order, as above to be G-MIDN. Just says on order though, no date.
Jethros site has it as G-MIDN as well with delivery 03

A few other sites list the same, very confusing!

Hi all,

Thank you very much for the info!

Looks like it's going to be a while before I have the chance to photograph G-MIDN then, although I can't wait to see the A319 in the BMI livery!

Thanks again.

Regards,

Paul.
