On the "competition", I've just seen a last November picture of the Luzair TriStar stored at AMS. The author of the photo says in the remarks that CS-TMR was going through a thorough check as the airline was preparing it for Hadj operations in December. New engines from a former DL TriStar would be used.
Is this TriStar really going to flying again ? Has it already left EHAM ?

Yes, yesterday she was standing at one of the hangars only missing one engine. Plane looked pretty clean and yes, I think it will fly soon! When I asked some people there, they said it would fly for PIA. Not only for hadj but also on scheduled flights. With the ban in mind I think it is a smart set to lease EU registered planes.
Be kind to animals! Last trip: ORF-IAD-NRT-IAD-ORF with UAExpress and ANA

Last couple of weeks, nobody has worked on the Tristar. #3 engine still has to be fitted, but IIRC the engine brought in, was rejected by the Dutch FAA. Also there remains a lot to be "restored" in the cockpit.
