After the type was retired from JM, these planes didn't fly for the longest time. 6Y-JMP was sitting at CHR since April painted in TK colors.
Appearantly there were some corrosion, and engine overhaul problems. They are at MNL at LH Technic getting some heavy maintenance and the first one will join the TK fleet this week, next one is expected at the end of October.
This will bring the number of 343s at TK to 9.
TK Long Haul also operates 5 332s (2 more to join in Feb 09), and 3 310s.
This might help TK to finally open IAD, YYZ, GRU which were announced early this year, and fill gap till 787/350 order is put in.
