New Airbus Livery On A318

Thu May 12, 2005 3:12 pm

Yesterday the A318 F-WWIA left the paint shop in XFW in this new livery:

Unfortunately the sun hid behind a fat cloud when it was towed along the runway.

Looks like they shrunk an A380  Wink

BTW: I'm new to airliners.net forums. Hello to everyone  wave

Are the old JT8Ds back in town?  Silly

Take a look, PW engines! Are all of the A318/9 now offered with PW engines too? If so, what model are they and thrust specs? Thanks for the info in advance! Big grin

Cheers! wave

Sorry, I don't know. My knowledge about these details is very limited.

If these are really the new Pratt & Whitney engines, then they are called PW-6000:

Fan tip diameter: 56.6 in
Length, flange to flange: 108 in
Takeoff thrust: 22,100 - 23,800 lb
Flat rated temperature: 86° F
Bypass ratio: 4.8 - 5.0
Overall pressure ratio: 26.1 - 28.2

(Pasted from P&W website)

If Airbus is really serious about their new paint scheme and their corporate identity, can we expect to see all test planes in the new color scheme soon?

Jan,
Thanks for the info. If you take a look at the picture (open it, not the thumbnail... if not, you are going to go blind  Silly) you can see the P&W eagle in the case.

Again, thanks for the info.  bouncy

Nice colours!

Has any airline ordered the A318/9 with PW?

Rob!

Welcome TenTen  wave 

I do like the new Airbus colours, the older scheme would not have suited the 380 at all IMO. I still think they could have mixed a bit of yellow and red in there someware though.

The PW6000 is for the A318 only (at Airbus). A319s, 320s and 321s have the traditional choice between CFMs and IAE V2500s (PW being a member of IAE).
The trick is that nowadays the CFMs are also planted on the A318s so you get to have a single engine type on all four family members if using CFMs, or two types if you opt for the alternative.

There were long time issues about these new engines, are they resolved? Is it making the A318 worth flying? I'd love to see 100s of these small planes fly!

Can a potential operator of the A318 expect a certain level level of commonality between the V2500 and the PW6000 due to the fact that PW is a member of IAE?

Did Iberia order the A318 with PW engines of others ?

Hi guys.

Maybe unrelated, but there was a word in press yesterday that Jat Airways (JU) will be getting A318s, and A319s. This would be 2+2, instead of the old order of 8 A319s. They will most probably opt for CFMs. They mention "A318s" with 100 and 120 seats, so taking into account the journalist's "expertise", my best guess is A318 (2 class: 107 seats) and A319s (2 class: 124 seats).

Flying at the cruising altitude is (mostly) boring. I wish all flights were nothing but endless take offs and landings every 10 minutes or so.

Why would an operator opt for the P&W6000,unless its a fleet of only A318s.

BEG2IAH,
If everything those journalists wrote were accurate, Jat Airways would be preparing charter flights to the moon. At this moment the biggest obstacle for any firm delivery is the government, as it has the final say on fleet expenditures. It would be good if the World Bank or International Monetary Fund would pressure the Serbian government in administering serious reforms to Jat. Meanwhile, the A318 is a great plane, but not for Jat.

JU101,

I was busy so I didn't check the thread. Actually this was said in an interview by Mr. Starcevic, the acting Director General of Jat Airways. Otherwise, I completely agree with you.
