Scale? Price? Availability?

Scale is 1/144 (I think). Price I don't know, and, availability - for airlines placing orders of hundreds I suppose.

Good news though is that PacMin is offering a variety of models to suit the budgets of airlines - they see cheaper Chinese models coming into the market and they are fighting back. And, i think they are still made in the USA - good news!

model grade information | PacMin

See the different types - the one I showed is Premium Economy. it's solid (not hollow) and says PacMin on the plastic base. But, it's not resin. Other than this i don't know much more.

Yes I have the Virgin America Premium Eco A320 model and its very very nice. Just like the 1/100 model except a bit smaller.

I've seen the Virgin America model and i'm tempted. How does it compare to a Hogan or similar?

Both are as different as chalk is from cheese.

Hogan is smaller in 1:200 scale with landing gears, fully detailed with excellent fit and finish, not to mention alot cheaper.

Pacmin is slightly bigger, no details whatsoever but excellent fit and superb glossy finish.
