Fisrt A318 At ORD On 2/17/05?

Fri Feb 18, 2005 2:43 am

Can anyone verify if any A318's have landed at ORD in the past. The only airine that I know of that may have flown one into ORD is Mexicana. Or possibly a diversion of a Frontier A318 from MDW. (I personally have never seen one at ORD.)

So could this be the first arrival of an A318 to ORD?

They are replacing the 757 flight with the 318? Please say it ain't so.

Hi everybody, the MX A318 have been operating ORD for about 1 month, this days MX is putting the A318 because of the very low loads these days, about 40-60 passengers per flight, so the 757 will be unprofitable, but don´t worry, the 757 will be back to ORD on high season again.

Not sure about the frontier minibuses at ORD, but MX buses have been at least from january, it operates mainly MX800, MX807.

Life is what happens when you have other plans.....
