Update On Project XM And A/C Assignments

Mon Sep 25, 2006 12:50 am

Hi All,

I'm heading home to Newfoundland the end of October and am flying Air Canada. With all the hoopla surrounding AC's new AVOD on their refurbished A320's (both of my flights are scheduled to be A320's) I was wondering 3 things (and I bet you can all guess what they are):

~ How many 320's will have the retrofit by the 3rd week of October?
~ How far in advance is a particular aircraft assigned to a flight?
~ Later on, if someone here can give me the registration of the aircraft, I'll know to either look forward to some AVOD or look forward to a good book.

Thanks guys and gals!

-If I'm not mistaken, there are presently three completed XM A320s...maybe now four?

-Aircraft changes can take place up until the day of a flight due to maintenance, scheduling and other issues. While your flight may very well operate with the plane it's originally scheduled for as of now, chances are, things will change.

-I'm not sure of the actual tail numbers...you might consider checking FlyerTalk as there are definitely lists on threads over there.

thanks everyone! I appreciate the help!

As I get closer to my departure date I'll check back and maybe I'll get lucky!
