Man after this it's gonna be the A3XX hype. Funny thing is it won't be revealed until much later so the whole thread will be a huge guessing game, it's kinda like those Steve Harvey shows but FSL edition LOL

Hello guys, I appreciate all of the hype going on already and I am super excited to see all the anticipation reaching amazing levels! In fact, I wanted to share that, while we don't expect t

Hi all – As Lefteris commented on, one of my favourite areas of the updated models, besides the PBR, is the cabin windows. Each window has now been remodelled in detail - and we've also modelled

I've elected to stay away from this until now as it gives people an opportunity to joke around, vent their frustrations on a "perceived delay" of our release (even though I've explained the reasons be

Yes, that's what I was looking for!

So many right guesses here anyway that I'm gonna reveal that it is indeed a sharklet. Here's one of a non-shark, where you can see the different shape of the wing root fairing.

From behind/above it's easier to see the "mound" the sharklet wing has.

Leaked beta pics of the FSL sharklets of FS2020. If you ask me they did a damned good job especially with the models/textures.

Only the real OGs remember when this first started out as a sharklet thread.

After Leftris announcement where he mentioned „couple of weeks“ I thought we can fly the Sharks during my holidays in august. Now there are my holidays and there are no sharks and the A319 for V5 either

It took a month for the a321 so I base my estimates on that now. And I believe Andrew said somewhere on this forum that he flew the a320 sharklets.

A month from the A321, maybe, to the A319 then another month or so to the Sharklets.  Then a new hype thread for the MSFS2020 iterations.

Just sitting at KATL heading KBOS with this beautiful plane. Nice proposal as flight for flightsimmers over the weekend. It will be def my first flight once the sharks are published. Its a wonderful and nice approach in Boston.

Something I've noticed about the sharklets is that at night you can quite clearly see the strobes in the cabin reflecting off the front window thing in Wizz aircraft, I'm guessing it's to do with them being more forward-facing than the old fences?

What airline was this?

yup, that was eurowings. 
funny side note: my brother was the FO on this flight (and the return), which was the only way I could get my wife comfortable enough to board a plane :D 

guess what she thought about this rather unusual cycling approach he did (due to weather/wind) :D

 I hope that somebody will. I´m part of probably the biggest BVB rival and I´d tend to say that I hate this team, but on the other hand, at least in real life, it´s kinda special though to board an aircraft which is the "official" aircraft of professional football players, of one of the most known teams and one of the best worldwide. 

 

I also like the livery because of it´s overall style, but on the Sharklet, the only thing you see is the logo of that team, so the sharklet looks really bad if you look at it from the inside. However, from the outside it fits just fine to the overall livery.

Sorry but this is the best plane ever. A must as day one livery. The management from EW are heros. Not that they are having this livery in their fleet, no they even flew Schalke supporters back from england. A masterpiece of the team who is dealing with scheduling.

Actually, very true. A fantastic livery, very well fits the Airbus - however, not easy to repaint...

Some weeks ago all Eurowings a/c were parked on German aprons because of Corona.

Every time we made an low approach there all the white painted a/c were lined up in order and appeared very similar - except for this one. You could easily spot it multiples miles on final...

So, yeah, would be a very nice addition!

Best, Björn

This shark has lost its way across the river Thames... :blink:

Yikes! FS2020 never looked better and it seems we have a leaked Sharklets expansion for it too! Can't wait to fly the Sharklets for MSFS. I wish.

I hope the dev team is considering adding in STEP ALTs into the FMS when the Sharklets expansion comes out. It's a commonly used feature especially on longer flights where the flight plan has you stepping your cruise flight level.

Why can’t you just relax and let Them do their work in peace you just keep going on and on even after the devs asked you many times to stop with these childish questions and assumptions that you make every other day
