I just came across this article about a Bank in China in talks to lease aircraft to Air China and China Eastern Airlines:

Quote:
The bank yesterday teamed up with China Eastern Airlines to lease three Airbus A340 planes worth 1.3 billion yuan (US$190 million) to the Shanghai-based carrier for six years.

Does anyone know where these birds will come from?
Is this a prospect of new-build A340s?

190 mil doesn't sound like much for a lease on new frames.

BTW, anyone knows where will CX's 346s finally end up?

(Could it be there?)



Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

I thought they were going to Hainan Airlines; not sure where they intend to use them?

B-HQC has already been repainted down in MNL, it now is registered B-6510 with the Hainan Airlines paint scheme. Hainan should then be getting HQA in Oct, and HQB in Dec.

Are you sure? I thought SQ had just reconfigured the A345 for the EWR flights. See below:

Ex SQ planes - i think they mean the former SQ A340-313Xs.

Qatar 4 A340-600s could be candidates as they will be leaving the fleet within the next year or so?

I know that they were supposed to leave the fleet soon, but I heard that QR were holding on to them for a while longer instead, cuz they need the lift.... I could be wrong.
