A321neo non-LR range

Sat Apr 20, 2019 12:35 pm

All the range figures I found for the A321neo were for the A321neoLR (i.e. 4000nmi). What's the range of just a plain, non-LR A321neo?

"Airbus-Commercial-Aircraft-AC-A321-Feb18.pdf" Section 3-2-1 Page 4 ?

graph for wing fuel and wing fuel plus 1 ACT

93.5 t MTOW:
max payload range: 2500nm @ 25.5t
max fuel corner 24t @ 2750nm ( no ACT )
max fuel corner 22t @ 3200nm ( 1 ACT )
15t payload : 3100nm ( 3440nm with 1 ACT )
10t payload : 3300nm ( 3740nm with 1 ACT )

It’s really hard to give a single meaningful number for range, as it depends on many factors, like payload, tank configuration, MTOW, winds.

The longest flight an A321 NEO non LR has successfully operated was KEF-LAX by WOW with up to 200 PAX and 2 ACT’s. If the winds were unfavorable though, they needed to do a fuel stop in Winnipeg

The XLR will reportedly have a nominal range of 4700nm. The comparison with the numbers above underlines just how transformational that will be for those airlines that want both hold capacity (eight containers, I assume) and range, though beyond a certain point there will be payload/range trade-offs, even with the additional MTOW.

Here you have a generic payload/range diagram for the A321neos with none, 1, 2 and 3 ACT (LR)

But there may be differences depending on the cabin density, seats type/weight, equipment like IFE, etc, etc.

And this is range in an stable atmosphere without wind. Headwind= less range, tailwind=more range. Wind can be very significant at some latitudes, especially in winter.

And you need to account alternate aerodrome (which distances vary), fuel reserves, etc.

I really want to know the minute difference between PW GTF and LEAP engined A321neo in terms of range?
I think there is some but it's not mentioned anywhere

PW promote 2% more range for the PW GTF

that's a good think and I think PW have said that they will improve performance over time as well.

I think easyJet's 235-seat A321NEO are "normal" range birds, and easyJet are using them on Hurghada-Gatwick, which is 2,200nm / 4,000km (5hrs30mins flying westbound) and I guess they sell every seat if they can, Egypt is back in fashion again.

Pretty capable bird.

Also, Novair were using their 221-seat A321NEO non-stop Scandinavia - Cape Verde, which is about 7hrs30mins flying - not too shabby either.
Come, fly the prevailing winds with me
