Deutsche Lufthansa is Germany’s flag-carrying and largest airline, founded on January 6, 1953, as Aktiengesellschaft für Luftverkehrsbedarf (Luftag). Acquired the name and logo of Deutsche Lufthansa on August 6, 1954. The name is from Luft German word, meaning “air” and Hansa for the Hanseatic League. Subsidiary airlines are Austrian Airlines, Swiss International Air Lines, Brussels Airlines, and Eurowings including Germanwings.
The Airbus A319 is a short to medium range, a narrow-bodied, twin-engine jet airliner. A member of the A320 family that includes the A318, A319, A320, A321, and the ACJ business jet. 3.73 m (12 ft 3 in) shorter than the A320, it first flew on August 25, 1995, entering service in April 1996 with Swissair.
Manufactured in four variants: the A319, the longer-range A319LR, the A319MPA Maritime Patrol Aircraft and the A319neo (new engine option) with more efficient engines, airframe improvements and large sharklets.
The airframe uses composite materials of aramid fibre, glass fibre and carbon fibre reinforced plastics, and aluminium alloys. The fuselage is of a semi-monocoque design, with a glass cockpit and a broader cabin than competitors, 3.95 metres (156 in) outside diameter, compared to 3.8 m (148 in) of the Boeing 737 or 757. Wings are low mount cantilever swept-back design with a conventional single-fin tail. The undercarriage is a retractable tricycle type with the main units mounted in the wing roots retracting inward into the fuselage. Flight crew consists of two pilots and the passenger cabin typical seats 185 to 206 four abreast in two classes.
Powered by two CFM International CFM56 or International Aero Engines (IAE) V2500 high bypass turbofan engines, pylon mounted one under each wing. The A319neo uses the Pratt & Whitney PW1000G or CFM International LEAP engines that offer lower maintenance costs and about 15% better fuel economy. The A319 has a cruise speed of 829 km/h (515 mph), a maximum speed of 871 km/h (541 mph), a range of 6,940 km (4,312 mi) and a service ceiling: 12,500 m (41,000 ft).
