Re: A320 spaceflex differences

IIRC, the VX aft galley/lav config is the original SpaceFlex, now known as v1. Then it was redesigned into v2 - which most airlines are using now, as the v2 has almost twice as much galley capacity. There are several photos/drawings on the web if you type in SpaceFlex v1 and v2.
