WOW Air A321 Features New Livery

Thu Mar 05, 2015 2:37 pm

WOW Air will shortly introduce two ex UT Air A321 into the fleet for their transatlantic ops. They will feature the registrations TF-MOM and TF-DAD. Just fresh out of the paintshop, TF-MOM is out and features a completely inverted livery!

But I thought we had been told that A321s aren't suitable for operating from Iceland to the US due their inability to carry fish in the hold?  

Good to see some more colour on the airways and around airports.

But for KEF-BWI, it will likely require at least one, if not two ACTs. Maybe also for KEF-BOS.

I think one belly tank is standard on the A321-200. With 2,400 nm it should not need more for KEF-BWI.

Going west it's easy to do a fuel stop. Going east the wind will make the flight much shorter.

Iceland to the east coast is about as far as Boston to San Francisco. A321's can do that pretty easily.

Yes the distance is 2,400 nm and the range of a standard A320-200WL is 3,200 nm That gives 800 nm miles in reserve.

United is flying TLX-EWR with the 757-200 4,550 nm against the range of 4,100 nm, having about 550 nm in reserve.

TXL-EWR is 3458nm Great Circle distance. Not 4550. Call it 3550 airways distance, and with 85% winds another 350 or so to make an ESAD of about 3900nm. If the weather is above so and so, UA will not use an alternate, and land with pretty little fuel. I have ferried a 757 westbound a sector of 3750nm in about average -35 wind component and landed with min fuel after a 9:40 flight. In an empty airplane.
If you are not either a pilot or a dispatcher and don't understand the above so be it.

With winds like they have been on the North-Atlantic and eastern North-America this winter, they will run into issues going to BWI. KEF-BWI is 2400nm gc dist, add min 75 for airways distance, and the ESAD with 85% winds will be about 2800nm. Add EASA fuel requirements, holding, contingency and alternate, about an hours worth of fuel and suddenly it is not that easy with one ACT. Not even in summer. The first bad TATL winds I saw in late summer 2014 happened around August 20th.

And don't believe any OEM's quoted range.

Ok I made a mistake writing 4 instead of three. I do not have to call it 3,550, it is 3,550 nm. The mistake should be clear to you as I compared it to the range of the 757-200 with winglets at 4,100nm and mentioned there would be a reserve of 550 nm. We all know that it is tight.

But going with the A321 from KEF west bound to BWI you fly 2,400 nm and with a range of 3,200 you have a reserve of 800 nm. You are far less hours in the air, in still air 5:30 hours, and have considerable more reserve about a bit less than 2 hours.
You also are less effected by the jet stream as you are not going west but rather southwest so not directly against.
