Any news? Refurbishing for Air Gabon? Where is this 744 Combi at the moment?
LAst thing I heard the Air Namibia colours were removed, but that was almost two months ago.

Amadeus shows Air Namibia reverting to a 74E on its FRA service from tomorrow... maybe she's back?


Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been...

Yes, the 744 is back in an all white livery. Right now you can get last minute tickets FRA-WDH-FRA for 350 Euro and an upgrade to Business for 375 Euro!

Hi all, have found this :-

"Air Namibia to Use Boeing From Friday

January 16, 2003 1:40pm

Air Namibia will resume using its Boeing 747-400 Combi on Friday while it continues seeking a partner to lease the costly aircraft.

The national airline said in a statement yesterday that the Boeing will only resume its flights for an interim period as Air Namibia is still looking for the right aircraft to serve the needs of its customers.

In a move criticised by some in the aviation industry as a poor business decision, Air Namibia grounded the Boeing in October and leased another aircraft from a Scandinavian-based company.

In the meantime Air Namibia continued to pay for the grounded Boeing, which has been a major contributor to the airline's N$1,6 billion debt.

Air Namibia's plan to lease the Boeing fell through after the national carrier failed to reach an agreement with Air Gabon.

The airline said it saved N$250 000 on a return trip to Frankfurt because the Boeing 747 is a four-engine aircraft which consumes more fuel than the twin-engine Airbus they have used recently.

The airline's Public Relations Manager Ellison Hijarunguru yesterday thanked "our flying public for their loyal support" during the past months when the Airbus 330-200 was used to service its routes to Frankfurt, Germany.

"As of January 17, the aircraft [the Boeing] will be back on its scheduled service between Windhoek and Frankfurt. It will be operated in a two-class configuration being Business and Economy," he said.

"Our Boeing 747-400 Combi at present is still in an all white colour configuration," the statement added.

Removing the colours was rather premature then. First you make the deal, then you make costs, not the other way around.
The fleet policy of Air Namibia in the last 5 years shows a lack of professionalism. Almost 10 years 747SP, then the 763, finding it unsuitable after less than a year, leasing a SP again for one year, taking the 744 Combi afterwards (because the cargo space was needed). Now they find it too big, and even after almost a year of evaluation don´t know what would be better than the Jumbo Jet. God, they are only very few choices: A330, A340. The 777 seats to many passengers, the 763 doesn´t take enough cargo.

Air Namibia is doing some good entertainment for the aviation community...
I am wondering what they do with their (empty?) First Class section...
