I Flew Airbus #7000
I flew the 7,000th Airbus aircraft, an A321 delivered with some fanfare in December 2011. I remember reading about this milestone and was excited to fly on a famous aircraft. Inside the plane looked a little tired and well used. My previous aircraft that day was a newer A321, both better than an American MD-80 or 757 (my other options for this business trip). US Airways will continue to take new Airbus jets into 2015. I like Airbus A320 series jets more than Boeing 737's, so while I'm excited to fly new US Airways planes, United's new 737's seem almost obsolete.
