It's a shame that Nepal's many problems, political and otherwise, have started to have a negative impact on RA. While the airline has by no means ever been stellar it was decnet about ten years ago but lack of good management and poor operations have really hurt it over the years. Considering they only operate to 757 they manage to get around to quite a few destinations. The problem is though, when one or both aircraft go tech there is no slck and it has disasterous consequences for the airline. Hopefully somebody with deep pockets will come in and properly ressurect this carrier... but I doubt it.

Its a shame really. Hopefully they can sort out a lease for some kind of back up to the 757s? When they eventually get around to fleet renewal, the U2 73Gs will be available in the next few years I should think.

Years ago, RNAC used to be quite a fab carrier.

They flew 727-100s from Delhi to Kathmandu back then, and easily bested Indian Airlines in terms of service and punctuality on that route.

I remember taking that flight as a child - they served these enormous tasty meals on a short flight (it used to be a breakfast flight), and the entertainment entailed looking out the window at the most magnificient mountains in the world.

Was talking to a few ex RA Pilots yesterday.Their opinion is that the problem of expansion lies in political Interference & corruption rather than Finances.Else aircraft procurement is not an issue.
