Do You Realy Have To Say Airbus <b>A</b>320?

Wed Jul 18, 2001 5:17 am

Hi there!

I'm wondering why most people says i.e. Boeing 767 and Airbus A320

I don't think this only is a kind of amateur problem almost every person here says like this but why?
Doesn't the A mean Airbus?

Just wondering.

Ehhhh.... Because those are the official names?

Just take a look at this picture. It clearly says 'Airbus A340' on the fuselage, not Airbus 340.
