"I have found that the easiest way to tell them apart, for me at least, is definitely the tail"
I agree. Also, all A318's registrations are numbered in the 800's, the A319's are numbered in the 900's, and the 737's (we only have -300's now) are numbered in the 300's (I believe).
"Any word as to if F9
will be acquiring some A320's?"
Our station manager at LAX
says that at this time, we are not looking at the 320 because it is currently too large for our operational needs. The A318 and A319 are doing great for us in terms of capacity, and have been great with interchanging the two when capacity dictates the need to do so. However, I would love to see an A 320 or even an A 321 in F9
colors....widebodies would be even better- but that's definitely a fantasy...hehe
I hope this helps.
