don't let easyjet throw you off. their 319s have double overwing exits (because the airline crams a lot of people into the plane) -http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1263298/L/(don't worry ... easyjet only has A319s and 737's: http://www.easyjet.com/EN/About/Informatio...fleetinfo.html)my 'trick' is to look at the small Ventral fins on top of each aircraft fuselage (hope i'm using the correct term).the A318/19/20s have three: one above the forward passenger doors, one just forward of the tail, and the last just above the rear end of the wind box. (the 321 has only two of these fins.) notice the the distance between the two rear fins decrease for each aircraft type: 320 a good length, the 319 shorter, and the 318 REALLY short.happy plane-spotting!--
