Like if we were the Star Wars "Millenium Falcon" we were cruising low and fast in southern Madrid

Not all airlines opt for the back-ups (not only the ASI I might add). BA, LH and US are a few that do, but I don't know if it's fleetwide. Some ac may have them omitted. EC-HGT however, an IB 319 has it fitted.

Every airliner has a backup for Airspeed-Heading-Altitude-Attitude as this is a hard requirement for the certification of any 'big' aircraft. These instruments dont have to be analog though, they have to be independant of the other displays, sources and powersystem so in case of a total electrical faillure, unrelieable readings, display faults or other causes of loss of normal flightindications. This Airbus, just like almost all new Boeings and airlines have chosen for a more modern digital version instead of the 'old' analog backup, though these are still completely independant of all other instruments.

Sorry, I meant the analogue ones, not to confuse matters. Cheers.
