    I guess we'll have to think of the A320 flights as "Eagle+". Given the choice, I'd rather have a CRJ-900, I think. The ONLY difference might be a hot galley...

    HOPEFULLY the A320s have more premium seats than these A319s...

    Even the A319's are A320's. It's a lingo thing. But yes, hopefully they spec them out differently.

    In regards to F, it's more like Eagle- as the CRJ700 has more F seats than they're putting in the A319. ;)

    Lets make it really fun!

    "The A319 is a shortened, minimum-change version of the A320. Also known as the A320M-7 (A320 "minus seven frames"), it is 3.73 metres (12 ft 3 in) shorter than the A320;[49][56][57] four frames fore of the wing and three frames aft of the wing were removed. This allows the number of emergency exits to be reduced to six."

    Sad but not surprised. Those markets are unlikely to be supporting many paid F seats, so the incentive to keep large F cabins on those planes simply to upgrade elites for free isn't great. I purchase well in advance in most cases so while AA keeps the current upgrade system in place, I won't sweat this too much. If things change, I might be SOL though.

    Usually 320's have more premium seats than 319's do. That said, if not mistaken, AA has only ordered 319's and 321's--isn't that the case?

    Thanks for the pic! I'm not looking forward to these, but I suppose they're better than ERJ's with 0 F seats and to be honest for the shorter (sub 2 hr) flights I don't care nearly as much about upgrades as I do early boarding, priority security, etc.

    US Airways has the same number for A319s and A320s (12). I THOUGHT American had also ordered A320s, but their "new fleet" link only lists A319s, A321s, and B737s: http://www.aa.com/i18n/urls/newplanes.jsp

    It also shows the picture below as the "A321, A319, B737 First Class Back." If only this applied to the A319s...
