Hello to all,
A few days ago, there was a -rather small- thread about Airbus order codes, which turned out not to be order codes at all.
As where in the example of a B737-229, the "29" indicated it involves a B737-200 ordered by Sabena, it was indicated that the last two numbers in Airbus type codes have a slightly different meaning.
The last number would indicate the gross weight of the aircraft in ascending order, and the second to last would refer to the type of engine. (Information from Kaitak -thanks again.)
However, we didn't have a "number 3" type engine.
That leaves the question of which engines are on e.g. A320-232s as flown by United, America West, Air Macau, Constellation (RIP), and so on... (Cf. A.N database.)
Can anyone shine a light on the matter and/or confirm any of the other info on these "codes"?
Thank you in advance,
