Any Airline With A318, A319, A320 And A321?

Fri May 01, 2015 7:36 pm

I'm curious if any airline has taken delivery of or had all four A320 variants in service, the A318, A319, A320 and A321?

Though not directly comparable, it would be somewhat akin to the DC-9-10, -30, -50 and -80 all used by Republic Airlines in the 1980s (or Northwest with the -10, -30, -40 and -50).

Any other airlines fly (nearly) all variants of the DC-9?

Interesting! So few A318s, particularly BA - they use the two they have for London City to JFK, right?

So any airlines with all FIVE DC-9s? -10, -30, -40, -50 and -80? (I won't include the -20.)

-80 ? Does that mean MD80 already ? It was a continuum from DC-9-10 all the way to MD-95 (now called Boeing 717).

Northwest also flew the MD-82 inherited from Republic into the late 90s.

I believe SAS is the other big one, they flew almost every version.

While they don't operate them anymore, LAN did have the A318, and now flies the 319-321 (318s were retired 2 years ago). So, in its history, one could say that it has operated all variants of the A320 series.

F9 will join them in that eventually, as they retired the 318 but still operate the 319 and 320, with the 321 on order.

SAS don't operate the A318, but looking at the 737NG and A32S they operate 6 out of 8 possible versions. 737-600, -700, and -800. A319, A320 and A321.

Not quite a complete set, but Continental flew almost every version of the 737, missing only the -400 and -600.
The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word.
There is no 787-800, nor 787-900 or 747-800. It's 787-8, 787-9, and 747-8.
A321neoLR is also unnecessary. It's simply A321LR.

AF operates all 4 models on GVA-CDG depending on time of day and day of week.

I was on one 4-flight AF trip from GVA a couple of years ago with a connection at CDG both ways involving all 4 models.

AF185, it's one rating. I for example have a A318/319/320/321 rating as well as a A330-200/300(A350) rating that I'm current on.

For what it is worth, I always find the A321 is the most enjoyable to fly of the Airbus narrow bodies due to it being a more stable platform than it's smaller siblings.

BA, AF

Though BA's 2 A318s are operated as a very special service from LCY to JFK, using the old Concorde flight numbers 001, 002, 003 and 004. I think they may be operated by a BA subsidiary called British Airways Ltd, but they are for all intents and purposes BA aircraft.

I agree. Quieter in the cockpit; more like a large airliner than the 319/320. Similar in performance and feel to my first jet, the mighty DC-8. And the easiest to make a grease job landing in!

I believe that the BA Ltd. company was wound-up earlier this year, and the aircraft have now reverted to full 'mainline' BA. It was interesting having a look at the apparent 'origins' of the BA Ltd. service, apparently as a way of holding assets for BA (the plan was apparently for them to take far more than just two aircraft, including things like landing slots etc.) to try and attain cheaper credit, as it would be a lower-risk subsidy than full BA. Apparently, however, this plan never really took off, and as such BA Ltd. was slowly wound down, and finally ceased to exist at all earlier this year.

I remember reading somewhere years ago (could have been here), that AA once had a grand plan to replace all their mainline narrowbodies (except the 757), with all of the (then available) versions the 737NG. The -600 would replace the F100s, the -700 for the MD80s, and the -800 for the 727s. No idea how true that was it wasn't, but obviously they only ever operated the -800s.

Most airlines never had the 747-8i, so they're out. Out of the ones that operate the 747-8i:

Lufthansa never had the 747SP and never had the -300
Korean Air never had the 747-100
Air China never had the 747-100 (ony the -200) and never had the -300

While not operating all four - Mihin Lanka is probably the smallest sized airline to operate the most number of Airbus narrow-body subtypes. It has a fleet of four currently - comprising of one A319, one A320, and two A321s.

Iberia came pretty close. They converted their 10 unit A318 (MD-87 replacement) order into 10 A319s.

Also if you want to break it right down, Air France is the only carrier to have operated all A32X models:

A318-100
A319-100
A319-100LR
A320-100
A320-200
A321-100
A321-200

edit: not sure they've flown passenger --200s, actually, though they've definitely used the freighters.

Thanks Mon, do you happen to fly different types on the same day? I wonder if there is much of a difference when handling an A318 vs A321 for example (besides the speed/weight factors etc)
