Re: Austrian to get 6 of the planned 10 A320s earlier than announced

That's going to be quite a jump if they are replacing their Q400s with A320s. If I am not wrong that's a jump from 74 seats to 174! I wonder if they will start trimming their frequencies. Also I guess more and more OS flights will be boarding from remote stands as I don't think they'll have enough ...

Austrian to get 6 of the planned 10 A320s earlier than announced

Austrian has recently announced in their Twitter that they are going to get the first "new" A320s already in August instead of January. Are the MSNs already known?
