The A340 in full Conviasa cs , stored at Paris Orly for months now , has received attention by Air France maintenance department , and NEW , has received its Venezuelan registration , YV1004.
Does this mean , delivery is imminent ?
Will Conviasa open Madrid with this Airbus ?

Yes you are right.This A340 , which at once was not taken up by Conviasa , was supposed to go to Air Comet.
But the latter beginns to receive ex A340s Virgin Atlantic.
So , obviously Conviasa changed their mind , and will finally accept it.

Quoting 797 (Reply 4): Oh well! Now things are starting to get interesting!
ha ha your right ... I can see them announcing in the comings days " New social route to Pyongyang or something similar" ha ha
We'll see if they are a real airline or just another member of the government.
If they announce a route to one of Chavez friends like Pyongyang or something like that then they will truly convince me that there is NO hope for that airline after the petro-dolars are gone... if they star a european route that has something to do with the Venezuelan an Latin-American market and that is at least economically feasible... yeah I know I'm just dreaming.... that will never happen.. I better just stop tipping he he
Planes are soooo sexy, that I dont want to have sex in a plane, but with a plane...!!!!!

Quoting 797 (Reply 12): That means it has already arrived???
Mid March would mean ---> next week.
I'm glad Conviasa will take delivery of their first widebody aircraft even though they are taking a worn out and old A340-200. Why no A340-300? More airlines are getting rid of their A340-300s these days and in the coming years as well. AC comes to mind as one of the bigger A340 operators to get rid of their A340-300s soon. Can't Conviasa take over ex-AC A340-300s as they are newer as well? The A340-200 Conviasa will take over is one of the first built A340s as far as I know, if not the first built A340.
