Would the A321 make sense for Groupe Dubreuil?

Thu Jun 30, 2016 9:03 am

Forward: This is my first post, so please bear with me! :?

Would Air Caraibes or Frenchblue use the A321? Air Caraibes could use them for services to Canada, North America, Mexico and South America. Frenchblue would probably use them for trunk domestic services and to holiday destinations in Italy, Greece and Egypt, among others. If they order the A321LR for Air Caraibes, it could be used from secondary French destinations to the Caribbean, as well as longer flights in the Americas. Configuration would probably be ~210Y for Frenchblue (with a few rows of Y with extra pitch upfront) and 12J 180Y for Air Caraibes.

Any comments welcome! :)

A A321LR would struggle with France-Carribbean, especially with that many seats.

You are talking about long haul routes here. A321 (even in LR config) is not meant to operate such flights in my opinion. When you go long haul, there are huge fixed costs which are independent from the type of A/C. If you wanna cover those, you'd better go for an actual widebody plane and also make sure demand can support good yield.
IMO, for Europe/Carribean routes, A339 is the best option

Sorry, I was referring to the Air Caraibes A321 configuration. :oops: The lower density config would probably still struggle. Would a low-density A332 or A338 work for those routes?

Baggage capacity is another limiting factor for the 321neoLR on "VFR" routes like Paris-Antilles.
