Egypt Air New Airbus 330s

Egypt Air is going to sign for seven new airbus 330s
to replace seven of its old Airbus 300-600R nearly
in this month. That would make Egypt Air fleet modern
and similar in the 340,320,321,318 CP system.
In my opinion this is good for me to find the 330s in
Egypt Air fleet .

I bet because of the EgyptAir crash involving a 767-300 they considered going for the A330 instead of the new 767-400.

Actually, TEDSKI, Egyptair is already replacing their remaining 767-300ER (as well as MS990) with 2 777-200ERs. Delivery is scheduled for Sept. and Oct. of this year, bringing their 777 fleet to 5. As Goldenoras already mentioned, if this order comes to fruition, it will be to replace the A300-600Rs.

Egypt Air had a pair of 767-300ER one crashed as you said and the other is repaired and flying from october
2000 . 767-300s are going to be out of service in late
this year by the incoming of the new boeing 777-200ER.

I would like to say to TEDSKI that the 330-200 r very
sutable to be used for Egypt Air same cp system like the 340,320 that would be less coast for the pilot training and upgrade and it would replace the 300-600R.
767-400 is also a great aircraft but it isnt sutable for
Egypt Air in this time . Most people know the reall
reason for the 990 crash in 31/10/1999.

Nothing personal, many in EgyptAir do not believe the pilot suicide theory and that there may have been something wrong with the 767.

Nooooooooooooo flight 990 pilots crews are great u also belive this no the pilot didnt sucide and it is not an
crew fault or an airplane fault . The airtraffic had directed the aircraft for an prohibted area that resulted in targetting the
aircraft . But the investigations would never say that
okk.
Egypt Air Pilots are one of the greatest pilots in the world and they never do something like that .

I believe in the Suicide-theory for flight 990. Any pilot can have mental problems, even at EgyptAir, Goldenoras.

However there is prohibited area theory. They think that SR111, TWA800 and Egypt Air 990 may all have the same crash cause. TWA and SR had problems at the same time, same place and same day of week!! If anyone needs details, let me know and I'll post 'em.

I dont care if you belive in the sucide-theory or no Gibberish . First of all you dont know how is the life of people in Egypt ok. This is number one .Number 2
they said that Batouty the first officer is the one who
did that ok so that means that there wasnt any other person in the cp the voice recorders proved that there was other voices that means that the sucide-theory
is a very very big lie . Number 3 there was three aircrafts flying in the same route Royal Joardanian
Lufthansa , Elal the ATC had changed the heading of all of them except Egypt Air . Number 4 the pilots of
the royal Joardanian and Lufthansa announced that they saw strange lights was directed to the aircraft
and then they heared about the crash . ok
Sucide-theory can be very normal thing in Switzerland
and the people living there you have the number one
(Sucide-Theory People ) in the world . In Egypt it really
never happens .I hope you try to understand that .

IMHO, I think EgyptAir will probably buy the A330-300.

After all, the A333 will primarily be used on regional flights (the 772ER's will be used for longer flightes likd CAI-JFK), and given the large number of tourists that visit Egypt each year, the seating capacity of the A333 will be welcome.

Goldenwhatever, we will see in a couple of years whether or not the guy killed himself and more than enough other innocent people that had nothing to do with his private problems (it is true that he did in fact have problems....). I will believe in the suicide theory until somebody can prove otherwise.

Oh yeah, Goldenwhatever, I couldn't really understand what the hell you were talking about most of the time, so could you please re-write the text you wrote to me in an understandable English? I would be pleased to find out what you really meant. Thank you.

Come on Gibberish...
Goldenoras just wanted so say that you (we) don't know about the life/social structures in countries like Egypt. And he also wrote that Switzerland has the highest number of suicides all over the world. I myself find it hard to believe but that's a fact Jack.
On the other hand I agree with Gibberish, I believe the theory that the pilot mad suicide too.

OK, I have to admit, I over-reacted a bit. But really, I did not understand the sentence concerning Switzerland and suicides. I first thought Goldenoras meant the Swiss are the only one's who believe in the suicide-theory of EqyptAir 990. But thanks to SR3496 I now understand what he really did mean. And yes it is correct, Switzerland has the highest average of suicides. Sad but true. But then again understandable.

I would like to apologize to Goldenoras. But anyone can commit suicides on earth, if he's from Switzerland, Egypt or any other country. So please, for next time, don't just say no Egyptian would ever do that.

Goldenoras,

I just want to point out something. As far as I understand you,
you basically stated that the use navy/army shoot planes down
merely for target practice. And do not give much sh...t about
the people on board. That is a very serious charge!

Yet, you got utterly offended when someone dared to state
that it is possible that a particular egyptian could go mad and
commit suicide and murdered 200+ people.

Don't you think that your views/feelings are somewhat
unbalanced?

Magyar,

I think that Goldenoras pointed the fact that 1 or more airliners might have been shoot down by accident during military exercises and definately not shoot down for target practise!

I want to say to Gibberish it is fine I am interested to
meet many thoughts and also I thank SR3496 cause
he let u to understand and I respect your opinion but
I dont agree with it something normal okk. I dont belive for all the flights that made accidents that it have a suicide theory story . There are other things
hidden caused by policy and all what I want to say is
the truth the reall truth for any accident happened .

Thanks .
