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...

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

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.

My sharklet hype is diminished as, when I inquired earlier, it would seem there are no plans to bring sharklets to the A319.  I think the rationale is that real-world orders were dwindling.  I know American and EasyJet are larger operators with sharklets, but perhaps not every winglet implementation is a sharklet?

The 319 is NOT getting sharklets correct ?

Hi Jordan,

A319 update is taking a bit of time. I thought it would be shorter than the A320 because it's a smaller plane, but I guess I was wrong.

Imagine updates being "shorter" to release because the plane is smaller. 
With all due to respect but how can you possibly come up with things like that?

For a guy who clams to be a Delta pilot he sure is impatient default_tongue.png I thought pilots were suppose to be calm, cool and collective. We went through this with the 320 and 321 updates. I guess it wasn’t enough to hold him over, hahaha

Been keeping myself busy with MSFS until the Sharklets come out. Although it doesn't feel the same without the FSL bus, the Baron G58 is really fun to fly :)

On a side note, I’m having a blast flying the current A320 and A321. No need to wait for Sharklets when you can fly greatness today. There is always going to an update down the road. It doesn’t mean we have to stop flying what we have today while we wait.

Isn‘t it kinda pointless to even ask before the 319 v5 is out?

I hope to see some TCX A321 with sharklets.

If planned and if it is known what reg numbers they will be can you let us know pls?

Reason is I have an FR24 sub that gives a year of history and I'd like to preserve some history from last September ( so that i can fly those flights in future)

Thanks
