The aircraft were listed on the boeing site a couple of weeks ago, and now they are gone?

I guess someone scooped them up right away. Anyone know where they went?

They have been stored in Hong Kong all parked together and facing each other in the compass swing bay. This past weekend they were all taken to HAECO for some maintenance including an engine run on at least one of them. I am not sure if it was for regular maintenance or preparation for a new customer. At the moment they are back on the compass swing area.

Increasing fuel costs killed them.

It has been said that their failure was due to investors problems, NOT fuel costs.

Yep, the investors didn't believe that Oasis could make a profit in the future and Oasis was short on cash.

4 Oasis Hong Kong 744s are parked at HKG airport! You can see them if you land on 07L very clearly.
I have a pic of them parking there, but I don't have that pic here available - I am not at home...

This was a reply to a question I ask about why Oasis went under (for anyone whos wondering).

Sounds like a similar situation with Eos.

First 2 744s for Oasis were ex-SIA P&W'S(the first 2 delivered to them in 1989), the other 2 were ex-ANA GE's and the 5th which was not yet in service was also ex-ANA. All are early models and will probably be converted to Freighters in good time.

For flights to Macau?

At least he's attempting to save the airline.

Maybe they will go to QF? I can't think of any other airline that might be looking for 744s right now, especially with oil through the roof.

What a flawed business concept from the very start! Who was the genius behind this? Somethings are so obviously doomed to fail before they even get out of the gate. My heart truly goes out to the wonderful people who were looking forward to a lifetime of service on this airline. Perhaps if the cost of oil and channel #5 weren't the same, and the world was not at the breaking point with airlines, it might have had a fighting chance. It was a beautiful company from an electric city that just sizzles with excitement... If indeed the casino bosses can use the company as a gambling tool, it can spring back to life with subsidized junkets and international charters into HKG for the mega casinos popping up in the area. Damn shame the airline could not cash in on the Olympics as well.

Looks like Learjet23 needs a reality check.... although it looks like he's got one, he's been banned from the forum.

I think you are the one who needs a reality check (by the way, could you try to assault the guy a little bit gentler?). Perhaps word hasn't reached Scotland yet that the Olympics are being held in China, and that HKG is a big hub for connections to the mainland. And the equestrian events of the Olympics will be held in HK.

The SIA a/c were delivered in June and November 1989 (almost 19 years old). ANA took delivery of their first -400 in 1990. Unless a major airline has an immediate requirement for short-term capacity due Boeing/Airbus delivery problems, I cannot see these a/c operating as pax a/c again. The economic downturn, which is affecting all airlines, may mean they will go to the desert before being converted to freighters, - unless they are put to use for the next Hajj!

Maybe a quick fix for the 743's that are falling apart and the rumour of these A380 delays


25 FlyTUITravel : Both 747-481 models are actually quite new, B-LFC being a 1999 build and LFD a 2000 build. I wouldnt write these off as pax planes yet, I know AI is
26 Reality : Yes, the Olympics are in China this year.....and so is Hong Kong.
27 JFK69 : Possibly go to LY. Hold them over until any 777's or 787's come ready in 2013...then flip them to freighter mode.
