    It is the seventh MEA A320; the carrier also operates A321s.
    Airbus ended 2011 8,292 A320 family aircraft ordered since program launch -- including 1,256 A320NEOs. The program was launched on a business case of around 600 aircraft.

    Production for the narrowbody is ramping up to 42 aircraft a month, with the goal of going higher.
