New Airbus A32x Family Doors

Sat Oct 07, 2006 11:23 pm

Hi,

It just recenlty dawned to me that Airbus switched to a new doors design/layout, having a more round corner edges on the lower part of the doors. However some fot he newer deliveries ex Finkenwerder still show the old design:

Can anyone shed some light on the fact why there are still old & new designs? Or is the "new" design just a technical derivate (Bigger liveraft, ... ?)

I don't think it's a new design. It's just a new way the door outline is painted.
You can see the bottom of the door is still white and the sill is still all the way to the bumper plate.
