The Paris Air Show saw the launch of the Airbus A321XLR, the latest Airbus offering in their A320 family. XLR stands for extra-long range. This new aircraft is a throwback of sorts in the aviation industry. In an era where bigger is better when it comes to international air travel, Airbus is going smaller. The smaller aircraft will give airlines more versatility with scheduling as a single airframe will be able to accommodate both international and domestic flights. The A321XLR can travel up to 4,700 nautical miles with 175 to 200 passengers (Slutsken, 2019).
