I actually hadn't thought about where the heavy maintenance is done for the E190s. As they get older they're going to need those C and D checks.

I believe the A320s have their maintenance done at JFK and in El Salvador. Is that correct?

I also read in an Aviation Maintenance trade magazine that operation in Nashville is planning an A320 line in a couple years,was kind of wondering why and this pretty much answers that question.

Vought Aircraft Industries has a large facility on the Nashville airport. There they make wing components for the A319/320 and A330/A340-300-500-600 programs. Perhaps that is why there might be a A320 line, but other than Vought, I'm not sure where it would be.

The talks are very-very early and nothing has been signed. It was just mentioned in passing during his speech at the airport today... to which I was present.
