Airbus A319 CJ - How Much More Fuel Capacity?

Sun May 10, 2009 8:45 pm

I understand that the ACJ - the corporate Jet version of the A319 - has higher fuel capacity than the "normal" A319.

That ACJ version also flies scheduled commercial services, some of them quite long, such as Frankfurt-Pune (more than 4,100 miles).

Can anyone tell me the details of the ACJ used for scheduled commercial operations (Lufthansa/Privatair, Qatar, Air France?): max ZFW, max TOW, fuel tank capacities? Thanks

Quoting Mozart (Thread starter):

This Airbus document covering the A319CJ shows maximum fuel as 71,930 lb., but with max. fuel there is little room for any payload, only 1,710 lbs, about 8 passengers and baggage.

Airbus shows the standard A319 usable fuel as 41,290 lb. Other weight and payload/range data are in this document.

The A319 that Qatar uses on scheduled flights is not a CJ it is an A319LR.
Qatar has two CJA and CJB. They are equipped to have 6 ACTs but are only fitted with one. Even with only one, the baggage for 110 pax can nearly fill the hold. You can't fly long distance, and carry baggage.
DOH-ARN is about 2500nm and they need the ACT for the Northbound sector most of the time.

Thanks for the answers! I wasn't aware there was a difference between an A319LR and the ACJ! I assumed they were one and the same, with different names: "A319LR" used by commercial airlines for scheduled flights, ACJ more like a private jet.

So, does anyone know what plane and what kind of configuration Lufthansa/Privaitair uses for that very long Frankfurt-Pune flight, which is 3,600 nm?
