Why old generation aircraft?


#1

Hello,

After Q3 has been on for some time I see a lot of people ordering the normal A320s series (not the Es). I am just asking out of curiosity to know why.

At least on legacy world’s there are some routes where the non enhanced version may be cheaper by 50 or 80 as dollars per trip.

It is so in reality too. On short routes the sharklets are less efficient than normal wingtips.

OK, thats a lot for this very interesting fact. ;)

Yeah by using the aircraft evaluation tool on short routes the legacy aircraft seems a better choice
