A300 On European Flight

I try many times to take a A300 operated flight but till now I hasn't able to do this.
Some years ago I missed a LH flight out of FRA and a LIS SAL A310 flight.
By now It's seems to be phased out from the major airlines so it's more and more a rare presence at European airport.

Any idea about taking an A300 operated flight?

Thanks

Well you can fly on Iran Air, they send their A300s all across Europe (from Tehran).

If I am not mistaken Kuwait also operates their A300s into Europe, they also have 6th freedom between some European cities.

Not in Europe, but Thai airways still has 8 Airbus 300-600 in operation. Don't know on wich routes, but proabably domestically in Thailand.

Monarch has 3 left as pointed out, but it may be hard to pin them down on a certain route.

Your second (and only inter-Europe option besides Monarch) is Kuwait Airways. KU flies KWI-FCO-CDG-FCO-KWI, and KWI-GVA-FRA-KWI. These flights are very affordable but there is a catch, the flight is operated by either an AB6, or the 343, and this gets changed all the time.

Hope this helps, I finally logged a Monarch example a year ago with which I'm very happy!

Not intra Europe but from/to you also have Tunisair. I have taken their A300-600 some summers ago ORY-TUN, apparently they'll still be flying next summer but I'm not sure how much longer after that.

It's more 5th freedom as some of these infra-European flights can be booked.

Monarch has 3, one to be retired by November 2013, the other 2 in 2014, they fly them all over southern Europe/Egypt, mainly to sunny destinations.

Tunisair also has a few.

S4 A310 from LIS to PDL cam still be booked

Completely off-topic, HS-TAX was in Yangon when I arrived last Friday. I'm also flying MU A300s regularly between Shanghai Hongqiao and Shenzhen, hence my username which isn't 100% accurate unless; within the text, a la:

I've just booked myself on KU's GVA/FRA sector on the A300 - for the equivalent of less than £70!

I'm due for a trip to AGP because my sister is living nearby for half a year. Does anyone know the current ZB A300 routes (as in winter schedule) and is AGP among them?

As well as 2 weekly Istanbul SAW - Sarajevo (operates 08.08 - 19.09.13 only)

Most likely this flight won't be available for sale (only if originating from Kuwait).
