Well a list of good things but I guess I’ll pass. Not worth the $$$, only because my current a320 is already over-the-toply good.  

Basically this yeah. And the sharklets don't look good on Airbus anyway (ok, ok... debatable).

When I saw the price I was initially going "no-no", but the jump ahead feature is worth gold to me! I thought FSLabs was never going to implement a feature like that, they seemed incredibly resistant to the idea. Very happy they came back from that. I just wonder if this feature will make it to the 'older' product lines, or will it be a SL exclusive?

I'm totally with you on the jump ahead.  While the purists despise those kind of things, I cherish it.  These days I only really have time to fly 3 hours max or so.

For me this is a good deal. I had wanted to get the A321 anyway at some point, but most airlines I fly in the sim have either sharklet-only A321 fleets (Delta, Vueling, jetBlue,...) or mixed ones (American), so I decided to wait and see what they were going to offer... I kind of expected that you‘d need the regular A321 for the SL variant, but nope! So for 80 bucks I get an A320 and A321 with sharklets, the EFB, and some additional features. That is all right.

The pricing structure completely benefits someone who does not have the standard A321.  Not so much for current A321 owners.

True. If I had bought the normal A321, I would hate myself now for it probably.

Just in time: I've ordered a new rig that should be up to the task. Now I need another $270* just for these beauties.

*$140 for base model, $50 for the A319 and $80 for the A320/A321 sharklets. I don't care about the A321 Wing Tip Fence (as they call it in their forums hehehe).

Main rig: self built, AMD Ryzen 5 5600X @ 4.5 GHz 2x8 GB DDR4-3200 RAM, Nvidia GTX1650 4 GB, 256 GB M.2 SSD (OS+apps) + 1 TB SATA III SSD (sims) + 1 TB 7200 rpm HDD (storage), Viewsonic VX2458-MHD 1920x1080@30-144 Hz, Windows 10 Pro.  Runing P3D 4.5 and FSX-SE. XP11 Vulkan installed, but not yet tried. Will MSFS2020 run? If so, what do I do with 5 sims then?

Mobile rig: ASUS TUF FX504GD (Intel i5 8300H @ 2.3-3.7 GHz; 2x8 GB DDR4-2666 RAM; Nvidia GTX 1050 2 GB; 256 GB M.2 SSD + 1 TB SATA III SSD as storage; Windows 10 Home). Running FSX-SE and FS9 there.

Saitek X-52 as primary controller. Xbox 360 wired and eDimensional G-Pad Pro wired controllers as standby/travel. Fell in love with VKB Gladiator NXT Premium, now saving...  🙂

Pretty good value for what it is to be honest. It is the best Airbus you can get for a PC sim.

I was somewhat skeptical of the cost and time to roll out this update.  I've only had a chance to play around a little bit in the EFB.  But it's clear this is a very very deep EFB that far exceeds anything we've seen before.  I really hope we don't have to wait too long for the A319 to get the efb considering it's my favorite airplane in the family.  Even if it doesn't get the sharks, I just want the efb in it.

If you have bought the A321 from them recently this feels like a massive slap in the face from FSL.

Definite purchase, but I’d rather wait for 2 More weeks to have all small issues settled

I'm sorry, but how? A321 was released, what, 18 months ago? At $59. And the A321SL comes in a bundle making it effectively $40. So even cheaper for more innovation, and for one of the best sims you'll get outside of hitting up a Level-D sim, at a cool $500/hour? FSL offer monstrous value for money, IMO, especially for us mere mortals with desktop sims.
