Easyjet A319's (again) - Question?

Thu Jul 07, 2005 3:45 pm

I've done a search on this and can't find any other topics on the subject - if you know of one, please point me that way and forget this .....

I was at LGW last night waiting for my flight back to MAN and sat watching the string of evening departures - I happened to notice that EZY A319's have two overwing exits on each side rather than just the one on most other airlines.

I assume this is a safety requirement in view of the number of punters they cram inside their planes and is a 'special order' from Airbus - any other airlines have these?

I hope they don't start doing this on all new production A319's as the overwing exits is the first thing I look at to distinguish between an A319 and A320!

You are quite correct. The capacity of the A319 is 156Y which is a lot of pax for an a/c of it's size.

It looks like Germanwings are also going for the double exits.

The press releases state 156 seat configuration.
