I'm not aware of a planned refurbishment program for the A321 fleet but I have noticed that the doors/latches on the overhead bins have been updated to match those of newer Airbus cabins- kind of like putting lipstick on a pig

AC has a few newer A321s that were leased in 2015 I believe and are ex AF. They came with the ‘newer interior’. Have you seen these on original AC 321s or just been flying on the ex AF ones lately?

Yep, you can tell immediately. For me, a quick look at the overhead air vent nozzles reminds me of the newer LH "Airbii/Airbuses".

What are the FINs of the ex-AF a/c- I seem to remember them having the new style cabin, not just the bins... The ones I was referencing had the new bin covers/ latches but with old air vents/lights and cabin walls (FIN 461 on Saturday).

After doing some digging I found that the ex-AF aircraft are FIN 461-464, 473. Half were built circa 2000-2002, before Airbus came out with their 'new cabin', and the other half 2007 onwards- the ones with the newer LH-like cabins.

There are three CR9s (C-FJZD, C-GJZS, C-GJZT; fin 718, 719, 720) with the new paint scheme but with old "express" titles (lowercase grey instead of uppercase black). Do you know if they'll eventually go fix those?

No idea. I think a few of E175s have that style of writing on them as well

I've cleaned up the wiki a bit, as things start to get repainted.

@kerry786, 3 more posts and you can get in there yourself!

Probably not worth the cost to repaint them just for that small change.

A319 C-GARG (271) has left KROW in new livery (saw confirmation of repainting on another forum). Look forward to seeing how the baby bus looks in new colours as I think it suits smaller planes better.

I'm sure it's mentioned upthread somewhere (I don't see it in the wiki?), but is there a list of all the airports where the painting is done? There seems to be some really interesting locations!
