The Airbus A321LRs were bound for Qantas’ minimal effort bearer Jetstar. The first of 18 A321LRs were expected to be utilized on residential courses, (for example, among Sydney and Melbourne, at present worked by A320-200s). The additional seating limit would have supported benefits (232 seats on the A321LR versus 180 on the A320) alongside the aircraft maintenance manual.
Moreover, the A321LR would have encouraged more trips to tropical goals, for example, Bali.
