The A319neo Struggles to Find a Niche


Well-known member
I just received my third A319neo and it stimulated me to take a closer look at the type, which is definitely struggling to sell, although I doubt Airbus are especially bothered. The neo version of the A319 appears fit nowadays for only quite a specialist mission but even with only a handful of aircraft delivered there have now been 4 400 scale releases of the type:

The A220 does the job better than the A319N now and it will do it also better than the A320N when the series -500 enter service. They just need an alternative engine and voilá: launch!
Even with an A225, The A320N should still sell more than the A319N however
