This will be a very sad day. Best planes in the fleet.

There are no video screens to conduct the safety video anyway.....but i suppose you could do the audio with a live demo....

321s are gone after 30 SEP....get on them while you can....i saw a hidden virgin the last time in the galley catering.....

they will be missed....im wondering who will take them....i suspect AA...

my latest look at the 30 Sep schedules (a couple weeks ago) showed the last departure to be AS1126 SEA-LAX lv 630p ar 918p … however the last arrival was AS287 EWR-LAX lv 739p ar 1031p

SFO-LAX (usually 1x day) is another.

I know the plural of anecdote is not data, but I can't agree. I hated every single flight on them.

I'd rather ride ANC-FLL on a Q400 than have to look at an Airbus ever again.

Why? I love the functional air vents, two seat pods, extra bathroom, and slightly wider interior.

They seem to ride rougher, seem to be noisier, more rattly, less comfortable. I have no basis for that other than my own experience, but I don't like them and am glad to see them go.

It's my personal experience from a dozen-odd flights on those aircraft, which I would say is a dozen-odd anecdotes. Call it what you like, I guess.

It provided zero details, wasnt a story. Basically added nothing to the thread.
