13 H Flight With A A-321! (+ 1 Fuel Stop)

Thu May 25, 2006 1:07 am

Apollo, a swedish tour operator owned by Kuoni, will use a A-321 with 199 seats from Stockholm and Copenhagen via Las Palmas to Recife (Brazil).
That must be a record for a A-321. Or not? I am sure we have the best knowledge about this question among other A.net users!  smile

The LPA-REC segement is 4510km long. Only BA's LHR-THR with 4424km comes close, but that's, in case of the THR-LHR leg, from a hot airport and maybe faces more headwind.
Exceptions confirm the rule.

Spanair has flown last year an Madrid-Aqaba-Goa flight operated with A321. The stop in Aqaba was to leave passengers and to refuel the aircraft.

Stockholm - Las Palmas = 2685 miles, 4321 kilometers and 2333 nautic miles
Las Palmas - Recife = 2803 miles, 4511 kilometers and 2436 nautic miles

Madrid - Aqaba = 2298 miles, 3698 kilometers and 1997 nautic miles
Aqaba - Goa = 2483 miles, 3996 kilometers and 2158 nautic miles.

But remember the Nouvelair flight from TUN to YMQ this winter...

Tunis - Reykjavik = 2308 miles, 3714 kilometers annd 2006 nautic miles
Reykjavik - Montreal = 2339 miles, 3764 kilometers and 2032 nautic miles

You're right. Is the longest flight operated with 321 equipment.

ARN-LPA-REC = 8847 km and I think it's would be, indeed, the record for an A320/A321.

Last year, Nouvelair Tunisie used an A320 on TUN-KEF-YUL, which is 7467 km.

199 seats in an A321 means that they have 32 inch pitch seat spacing... that's one more inch than most legacy carriers have on their long-haul 767, 777, 744, 330 and 340.

I have flown QF B744 SYD-LAX nonstop (14 hours) with 31 inches to feast on... it was okay, too.

True. 199 seats in an A321 single Y Class is not too bad, especially for a charter. It would even be better than being squeezed onboard a B757 or B767 with a 29 inches seat pitch.
Just hope they'll have a decent IFE for such a long journey.

Aren't people forgetting a little thing called ETOPS? To operate on this routing across the south atlantic the 321 operator/aircraft/engine combo has to be approved for 120mins ETOPS according to the great cirlce mapper website. Has this actually been done for the A321 yet or are route proving trials being carried out at present?

Novair will also use A-321 between Scandinavia and Goa, India, With one fuelstop in each direction.

And TUI Scandinavia will use a 757-200 to the Caribbean this coming winter season. Also with one fuelstop in each direction.

I remember that Sterling used a 727-200 with 189 seats (that is MAX!) from Scandinavia to Colombo and Male (Maldives) via Larnaca and Sharjah.

Conair used A-320 from Scandinavia to Miami via Reykjavik and Gander.

Air Finland use 757-200 from Stockholm to Venezuela via Azores

Yep, good point.......remember, these flights are sold as part of holiday packages, the pax has no choice as to their flights. Its 14 nights in whatever destination, pick the hotel, and air and transfers are included. Only when the details of the trip are finalized and distributed to the pax do they realize that they are on a flight with one or more technical stops for fuel, and only when they arrive at the airport are they surprised with a small aircraft for a very long flight.

That being said, the A321 sounds more comfortable that most European charter flights on widebody airlines (9 abreast A330s and 8 abreast 767s are the norm here.....a standard 6 abreast A32X is rather confortable) and 32 inches of pitch in nothing to complain about either. Maybe this is not such a bad deal after all.

A Novair 199-seat A321 sounds much better than the 9-abreast Y seats @ 29" pitch on the 360-seat A332 that MYT has been flying to Brazil with a fuel stop at TFS...

Dutchbird used to have flights from Amsterdam to Colombo using a 752 with a stop in the Middle East if I'm not mistaken and HV had flights from Amsterdam to Kathmandu with a stop in Sjarjah when they still had the 752.
If I recall correctly either Dutchbird or HV had also flights to Brazil with a 752 with a stop in the Canaries.
All very long flights with a narrow-body.

European charter carriers do use medium haul aircraft on some long range routes.....if an mid-flight fuel stop is not an issue, then you can take 757s and A320s to some far off places!

That statement really shows how the 747 changed the industry, no?

It created an expectation that long range flights be flown with a widebody, and even though nowadays the majority of long haul flights are flown on wide and mid-body jets smaller than the 747, it makes the "single-aisle" long distance concept still foreign to most current pax.

The predecessor of today's EasyJet Switzerland, TEA Switzerland, used to fly to Brazil (I think it was Recife, too) as well, with Boeing 737-300s...with a fuel stop on the Canary Islands.

With fuel stop almost all kind of routings are possible...

The norm? Certainly isn't the case here in Germany: DE operates its B767s with 7 abreast, LT operates its A330s with 8 abreast - unfortunately LT has only a 30" pitch... I remember DE used to have more than that on the B757-300 a couple of years back (think it was either 31" or 32"), but I'm not sure if that's still the case.


In this case, I'd say that 13h flight seems ok - if the alternative (if there were an alternative at all) were a 10h flight with 29" pitch, I'd probably take the longer one...

Lauda also flew 737s to Colombo and Male, with a fuel stop in DXB. I'd love to do a really long flight in a small jet, in fact I have thought of flying round the world only on 737s - a LH or KL BBJ across the pond, Southwest across the US, Aloha to Hawaii and various Pacific airlines from there (Air Pacific, Solomon et al) to Oz, Virgin Blue to Darwin, Garuda to Thailand via CGK, then a LOT of hops across Asia and Europe back to London. Easy.

Can I also say, for the billionth time, there is no link between small planes and personal comfort. What's better, a Continental ERJ 135 or a Corsair 747-300 (with 590 seats)? I prefer small planes cos there's less nonsense at check in or baggage claim, and it feels like proper aviation. My all time favourite is the 747 but other than that, give me an A319 or a Jungle Jet over a 767 any day.

As I am sure that you know, German and Dutch holiday carriers tend to be a bit more human with their seating layouts than other European charter carriers.....maybe I should have used a differnt term than norm.....how about: "typcial"!

In any case, I think that you understood my point - an A321 with 32 inch pitch is more comfortable than a 767 or A330 with a very dense charter seating configuration.

It'd be interesting to know in which countries the higher density layouts actually are used - I know it's the case in the UK, but what about other countries? But you're right, I think I overshot a bit there... anyhow, yes, I do think that "typical" fits a bit better...  Wink

My thoughts exactly.

I have flown USA3000 320's from ORD to AUA and ANU. One a couple of the flights the aircraft were JMC subleases and on others were own outright by USA3000. As far as seats they were both the same. The pitch was tighter than on a sched. I'm assuming 30" pitch. However the seats were one of the newer slim line designs that actually felt spacious because of the curve at knee level. The only noticeable difference to me was that the arm rests were shorter. The only problem was that the JMC aircraft didn't even have proper coffee makers and the audio on the seats only worked on the left side of the headphones! This was annoying however a full movie and short subjects on a charter was a real pleasant suprise. The USA3000 A320 basically the same layout of the JMC aircraft but with proper coffee makers and audio that worked properly. The crews were pleasant but there was only -1- service for beverages and food. That stinks on a 7 hour flight. I have no idea how you Brits can handle having axtra seat per row on the 767!

Your could find yourself on a A320 12 hours (with 1 tech stop!).

Which route would that be ?

Not anymore ! I think they also fly to LCY on behalf of SK now.
Exceptions confirm the rule.

Correction for FlySSC, Nouvelair didn't use an A320 on its planned TUN-YUL route, and the service hasn't started yet, and again the A320 range is longer than that of an A321, even if it is a HGW version, AFAIK. Anyway, i've always wanted BJ to use the A321 to north-America instead of the planned A320, due to its larger capacity, and the example above is undoubtedly to urge the Monastir-based airline to start these so controversial flights  Wink Success is certain  Wink
Next flight TUN-YUL Tunisair A330-243.
