I was just looking at the payload range diagrams of the A319 and A320 and I am surprised that there is such an obvious range difference between both engines. Is this only due to the fact that the IAE is about each 100kG heavier?
Engine approx. range with 124PAX
IAE V2500-A5 2760nm
There is a similar effect on the A320
IAE V2500-A5 2900nm
And why is the IAE A319 range below the IAE A320 range?
Thanx for some intel
