Hi all,

Some news that has escaped this forum is that the first SAA A340-300E on lease to Jet Airways, ZS-SXD, flew out from Jo'burg on delivery direct to Delhi on Fri 6 May 2005. The aircraft was apparently in full Jet Airways colours with the ZS registration.

It hasn't escaped the forum, it's been talked about for months now and the picture was recently posted too.

Sammy I think the point that SAA201 was making that up to this point it has been all talk and no action, lots of speculation and conjecture, but now one of the planes has actually been painted and delivered.


After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

The aircraft has already been re-registered as VT-JWA.

ZS-SXD = VT-JWA
ZS-SXE = VT-JWB
ZS-SXF = VT-JWC

I see. Still though, if a picture of it was posted then obviously it hasn't escaped this forum, right? People here are obviously keeping track of it.

The aircraft flew out from JNB under the callsign "Springbok SXD" with the ZS reg taped over the VT reg.
