For now it doesn't seem like there is too much going on with those 332s. Most of the time they're in or in front of the hangar. Occasionally they're in service. I just saw LAO in front of the hangar and LAM at one of the gates the other day. Both of them wear their usual liveries.

BTW, which 3 of our four 332s are you getting?

Hi Tyrolean4ever.

From the information I got the only one that is not comming might be the one that was leased from ILFC and didn't have full Austrian Airlines livery...but I cannot confirm you that still. By the way, thanks for keep the track on the A330-200's, it would be wonderfull if you could give us an update when you see "something strange" about these planes...like, beeing painted white or getting MAYBE a TP livery....
Regards

So there is no taker yet with the 4th A332, it will just be returned to the leasing firm as of now? Maybe LX will purchase / lease it incase they will plan to open up the Delhi route again?!?  Wink

I flew on OE-LAN back in August 2000 from IAD to VIE. Was a very nice trip. My first A330.

It'll be interesting to see it with a CS registration.

Expect ZRH-DEL to be an A. 340.

Hi!

Hey David, don't worry, TP will take good care of those austrian A330-200's.....they will be joinning the others TP already have, and those, you of course know, came from SWISS, so it's quite a nice match, TP operating austrian + swiss A330-200's!!! And you ALWAYS have the chance to come a review them here in LIS...LAUDA AIR have excelent fares to fly to LIS!!!
regards

I don't doubt that, however it's sad that obviously others make good use of these planes, while OS is struggling with their 767s...

Swissair to be precise, then operated by LH and finally TP.

So out of OE-LAM/N/O/P, which ones go to TP?? i too would like to know about the 4th one??

Also what about OS's A343, OE-LAK/L??

I didn't know LX is planning to go to DEL again!!! When is it happening and which a/c, A332 or A343?

Hi!

Well according to the portuguese information it is possible to receive the 4 Austrian A330-200's...and this because it is said here that one of those was leased by ILFC, and that was infact the first A330-200 to be "secured"....has you know TP have airplanes that are leased via ILFC. So austrian friends, we'll probaly receive the 4 planes from you guys.
Regarding the 3 Airbuses that TP already have...OK, they came from Swissair!!!
Regards
