Size isn’t everything
The Airbus A319 is the smallest member of the A320 family in service with Lufthansa, measuring 33.8 meters from nose to tail. That’s 3.8 meters shorter than the basic A320 model. But all the aircraft in this family have a lot of features in common. This means that pilots need only one license qualifying them to fly all of them. The design similarities cut maintenance costs too. And passengers appreciate the feeling of spaciousness when they enter the cabin after boarding any member of the A320 family.
