veri noice plane

12 June 2017 Guest ASHFAQ ORAKZAI

Iam from pakistan I have traveled on the board of airbus 300,airbus 310 and airbus 320 I have found a 300 and a 310 very classic comfortable planes but a 320 little bit disturbing by air turbulance bcause it is light plane but over all good .

There is no pocket or holder at the back of the seats for keeping personal stuff like glasses, water bottle etc.
Now such articles have to be kept on the lap or on the floor.... which is quite annoying

Very, very uncomfortable seating! Like sitting on a wooden park bench for 3 straight hours. If you are over 6' tall I would avoid being a passenger on one of these planes.

Rode a A320 AirAsia from Manila(MNL) to Puerto princesa (PPS)
Its still OK

I agree with the concerns talked about in this forum, Airbus doesn't seem to realize that totally automated flight is more dangerous than a blend of automation and pilot input, the main reason airbus hangs their hat on the idea that pilot error is to blame for most accidents is because even when a crash is not pilot error investigating governments large manufacturers and airlines (who have a lot of sway) get themselves out of any liability by blaming one or two, usually dead, pilots. So by automating planes the can statistically say that "well no pilot flying must be safer" Bologna! All the crashes in the past 10-15 have involved sensor failures or strange results when pilots try to fix computer glitches, on CVR playbacks you always hear the pilots saying "what is the plane doing now?" There is an obvious disconnect between pilot and plane in the case of Airbus, look at the Air New Zealand crash in France, a frozen sensor brought them down! That is just crazy...absolutely crazy! I'm with lots of you reporting on this blog I try to avoid Airbus at all cost! Another documentary that I thought was interesting was the A380 incident with Quantas out of Singapore, for those of you who watched it did you notice how much effort went into the laptop interface to do the checklists and such, my goodness, can't you just get user friendly breakdown and a short list of probable causes then land the fricken plane, didn't look that way to me, in order to land the co-pilot had to go through a very lengthy process pounding away at a keyboard before they would be allowed to land by the planes computer, maybe I have it wrong but still in the older non automated aircraft if you had an engine failure and are lucky enough to be able to land the pilots would just shut down the faulty engine and beat it to the nearest airport and do their checklist enroute. Well boeing and bombardier for me please

How much cargo can be uplifted in an A320 flight

04 May 2015 peter mutungi

I saw a clip in the U-TUBE a plane landing assisted by a pick up van as its front landing landing gear landed in that van, may I know the weight of the front part of the plane?

They say "Safer than a lot of other aircraft out there" (aircraft Not a very glowing endorsement. I have flown on the A320 twice... and NEVER AGAIN. I have flown Boeing aircraft that clearly where aged aircraft, but the feel of the craft, on the ground and in the air, was that of a well built, solid aircraft. First ride on an A320... I thought, well maybe this was just an aircraft at the end of is service life. The second time on an A320 I asked how old it was... "About 5 yrs old"... Poorly constructed with cheap material, and I honestly felt the aircraft would shake itself apart at any moment. I have rescheduled flights many times, just to avoid ever flying on an A320 again. And this was WELL BEFORE all the "mishaps" of late. The DC-10 had a much safer flight record and fewer mishaps, and it was yanked from service in the USA in a heart beat. What's up with the A320 still being in service?

this is the aircraft model used in the ill-fated AirAsia's Flight QZ8501 bound from Indo to Singapore just so you know..

very nice air craft

The A320 is one of the best aircraft that I have ever flown. Thanks to Airbus Company and all those who are working on the continued development of this aircarft.

Best regards.

it is a good and in condition aircraft hope their are more airbus a320 will arrived soon thank you and also more information about that aircraft

24 February 2013 Guest

The airbus A320 is the best aircraft on the planet. Modern looking, highly computerized, futuristic and the most important of all reliable, unlike some new models. I was able to fly with A320 for dozen times and i can say it's my favorite plane.
