I saw this magazine Flight international a few weeks ago i read that Qantas has leased an A340-200 from an unknown source is it true ? If it is then which company leased the plane to Qantas and is there a picture of A340-200 in Qantas colours ?

It is true. QANTAS did wet lease an A340-200 from Air Tahiti Niu to operate services from Auckland to Papeete for 5 weeks from mid July. That service was replaced on August 26 when QANTAS will codeshare with Air Tahiti Niu on a once weekly service. The aircraft wasn't painted in QF livery.

The aircraft was only leased once a week for the single Auckland-Papeete service, with full Air Tahiti Nui (TN) crews etc. This has now developed to a permanent arrangement and TN will codeshare with QF once a week, with QF operating its own 763 on the route once a week also. QF are also going to place its code on TN's PPT-LAX services from November 2000.
Ironic isnt it? QF codesharing with TN?? The old Australian Airlines code lives on!!!
