We saw this story early yesterday and it was good reading. But when we got to this part: “For many airlines, the A321LR is a ‘Goldilocks’ aircraft that is neither too big nor too small for many destinations, especially point-to-point” we had to speak with its author.
We have been highly intrigued with this aircraft, even in A321neo guise. As the 757 wanes in passenger service, the A321 seems to be getting increased market attention. Take a look at A321 deliveries through the 1Q19. Since 2013 the market has been hot for the A321.
Howard Slutsken, the author of the story linked above, chatted with us about the aircraft and the growing market interest.
