I believe the new aircraft will be equipped with 174 seats. I think some of the existing 320s might be kept as they are, as there will still be two or three routes where they will keep C class.
Annnnd.... just saw A342 prototype take off from my garden (I'm just 8km. from the airport) testing the new RR Trent 900 engines for the first time. As far as I believe, these are the new engines to be used on the A380. They weren't any noiser than any other 340/330 taking off.
Wow, it's wondful living here!
All this along with all the Airbus Industrie traffic + French wine and good weather makes it quite an interesting airport.
Mind you, Cork does have it's days like yesterday. The place was heaving around 4 pm. Reminded me of peak time Stansted. The security screening queues were going all the way back as far as the bar! Aircraft from 3RE, WW, 2EI, 2JKK, 1FUA, 1LXR, Czeck Travel Serivce 737 and the TNT BAe 146 all on the ramp at the same time. The Air Luxor was an A330 to boot. Even the weather at Cork was as good as Toulouse must be most of the time in summer.
Bet the beer and wine is a lot cheaper though in Toulouse than at Cork?
