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

Next time, I´m aboard, I´ll ask the crew on why they don´t have any on this aircraft;)

 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

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

Love the latest update, I'm getting better frames with the A321 especially at heavy airports such as SunSkyJets Detroit Metro, thanks team!

I still don’t get the fuss. It’s a wing tip fairing - are the differences that extreme?

Maybe it's more about what we will include in the cockpit that matters for hype purposes? :)

There's differences. They don't just make the airbus look pretty :wub:

I've always wondered if airbus would make their own 757, a plane bigger than the A321 but smaller than the A330, like an Airbus A360. It would have the NEO's engines but slightly more powerful, the range would be around 4,000 to 4,500 nm and have the same VMO/MMO & service ceiling of the 757. The market is there since many airlines love the 757 (at least here in the US) but once it's lifespan is up the demand will be there.

That‘s why they went for the 321XLR as far as I know. They have a solid plattform with the A320 series and can easily adopt.

Is it very close to the cockpit's side windows?

Once or IF we get the Sharklets in MSFS then FSL has achieved ascension. Now where did I put my magic 8-ball?

Can the Sharklets go a little more than 3,300nm like about 3,500? I'm wondering what the range for the FSL A321 SL will be with 2 ACTs. I wonder if it can get close to the 757s range.

Thanks Norman, it's 3,200 to 3,300 nm with the Sharklets mod.

Marc, I figured you would already know this being a pilot with Delta Airlines?

There's a reason why Airbus is building the A321XLR, even though the 321neo already has more range then the 321ceo. You do need the fuel efficiency of the Leaps and GTFs to do the range/payload the B757 can.

Not to mention that, once the industry rebounds, there's potential for more Transatlantics from smaller airports, like for example, EGGD-KMCO or even EGHI-KJFK - if EGHI gets that runway extension, that is.
