The Airbus A318-100 is a single aisle, twin-engine jet manufactured by Airbus Industrie, the European consortium. It is the smallest member of the Airbus A320 family and thanks to its steep approach compatibility, can fly longhaul from London City airport. The A318 retains much commonality with the rest of the A320 family, including the advanced flightdeck with side stick controllers and fly-by-wire flight controls, allowing pilots that fly the Airbus A320 family aircraft to fly the A318.
The A318 has a passenger capacity of 107 in a two-class configuration, however, British Airways operates the aircraft with just 32 Business class seats across the Atlantic.
