Re: Spirit Airlines to announce major Airbus order

As far as I know the a319 line is the same as the A320. (Different then the a321) I makes zero sense to choose an a319neo over an a320neo. Zero. And and the market agrees. We operate the 319 exclusively into BUR and we do have routes where a 319 is more than adequate for capacity. As we continue to...

Re: Updated: NK Announces Upcoming Order of 100 Airbus A320neo Family Aircraft plus Purchase Options for a further 50

Sorry, but that is a non answer. If the A320 has a trip cost of ~10%* more than A319, and has 25% more seats, then you have a cost per seat advantage of around 14%! That is an awful lot to leave on the shelf because of "how airline scheduling or planning actually works". You're dealing in...
