Folks,

Former Qantas New Zealand 737-300 ZK-CZR is scheduled to leave Christchurch, NZ at 1800 local today (9th) for Pago Pago and onward to Mexico on delivery to Azteca. Crews have been staged along the way so expect it to be in Mexico real soon!

ZK-CZS is still air-testing at Christchurch but will be following in its sisters' footsteps soon too.

Cheers,

Rob K

Sweet. I hope they will be more competitive and able to create brand awareness in the Mexican market now that they are enlarging their fleet. If the new management of ZE could learn some tricks from Brazil's Gol, they might capture more market share.


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Sorry, I forgot to mention that the registration is/will be XA-UCL.

Hope that helps.

RobK,

Thank you very much for the uptade!

I was about to start a new thread of this but you beat me!

L. A. AZTECA is getting 3 extra B737-300.

You know the previous registration of the 3rd one and rego's for 2 and 3??

Are these aircraft flying full c/s or whitie fuselage?

BTW ZK-CZS was del new to TAESA! Good to see it back to our skies!

Last I checked, they still fly to ONT, but I don't know about other ones. I really think their planes would look beautiful if they moved away from the white and used a gold theme (Aztec Gold) and detailed the Aztec buildings on the tail

STOP THE PRESSES ! ! ! ! !

Flight-plan was cancelled yesterday and the plane didn't get off the ground I have since been told !!

However, my contact at Christchurch has physically seen it leave there about 20 minutes ago as 1845 local as XA-UCL callsign 'LCD8001' enroute for Pago Pago, that is now confirmed!! It was sporting a lovely colourful all-white paint scheme.

Sorry for the confusion.

Cheers,

Rob K

Is it carrying extra tanks, or because they are light can the plane make it on all of the flights?

Make what? I doubt it will be fitted with extra tanks.
