If someone of you will fly with a FR 732 from now till the time when they are phased out, please give a wave to those great planes from me... I tried to find the way to fly on them in the DUB-LPL leg but I were unlucky and I won't have the possibility to fly with those classics anymore...
At least on a FR one.
Someone knows if all the planes will be scrapped or if any airline will buy some of them???

They were sold some time ago to Autodirect, an aircraft broker. Demand for 732s in some markets is still quite high, and therefore any 732s with time left before a major check is due are likely to find takers.

If you're desperate for a 732 ride come down to India and try Alliance Airway's great Delhi-Jaipur-Jodhpur-Udaipur-Bombay flight on a 24-25 year old 732. With the 319's coming in later this year, there is not long for them as well. Its a pity to see the FR 732's go, but times must change, and like the 1-11's went the 732's must go as well. I guess in 15-10 years time people on this forum will be lamenting the departure of FR's 738's too!
