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.

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.

I flew one week ago to VIE with A319 IAE. It was beautiful.

Maybe someone like to watch :)

 

You are lucky to be flying, but the sharklet hype doesn't seem strong here...

It is because we have to wait for the A319 first. And we does not see anything about the A319 so the SL is far away in my opionion

You are absolutely right, the update for the A319 is very slow, I hope it will be launched this week in the first week of September and the sharklets if I see them very far

The A319 has to undergo a greater change than the A321 did, because the A319 has to be updated with PBR -- whereas the original A321 had PBR already.

It took about 2 and a half months for the FSL A320 to get updated for P3D v5 with PBR etc, so factor that into the A319 and you'll have some idea as to how long it will take.

And I'm not gonna be surprised if the Sharklets come near the end of the year, it would be like releasing it on the first year anniversary of the FSL A321.
