Kingfisher has leased 1 A321 and 3 A320s from ILFC , for mid 2007 delivery.
Another airline with A321 in India , after Indian and Jagson Al.

few points to ponder
  • why is the lease delivary so late? Their own A320s must be flying in by that time.
  • Are A321 so hot in demand, so as to grab them even at a future date?
  • What's the point in having just one A321 in your fleet, considering they've not ordered any of their own?

Late delivery , probably as no slots allowed before.
A321s are built on the same assembly line as A318s and A319s at Hamburg.
Why only one ? Probably the first of more to come , of which lease terms are not yet disclosed.
