F-GFKK came in today from Gander. Seeing as this is c/n 100, is she getting scrapped? The Aero Republica that was here for a few months finally left a few weeks ago as N499GR (i think).

I am pretty sure AF was going to fly a few MCO-PAP charter flights or something like that. I am sure someone can confirm my thoughts. They have an A320 based in the carribbean for some inter island flights and MIA-PAP. Either it was doing a charter down to the island from MCO or SFB or for some reason it was diverted there from MIA.

I agree with you. Maybe the AF3959 flight from MIA to PAP was diverted by any reason to MCO or was making any charter flight to Haiti.

AF has two A320 based in PTP, but this one is to be scrapped like F-FGKO previously.
Sad...

Looks like it ferried from CDG via Gander. Thought it was headed to the Caribbean maybe for an aircraft swap with one of the 320s down there. I think the scrapping response is correct. Thought I saw another similar flight within the last 10 days but I'm not 100% sure.



My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

The subject line says this aircraft landed at Sanford (SFB) and you are talking about McCoy Field (MCO). Which airport did it actually land at?

So you're obviously not talking about F-GFKK, cause that bird is a -200. It is old however, delivered to AF in 1990.

Air France has two A320 based in PTP for its Caribbean network. They are registered
F-GKXQ & F-GKXC.

F-GFKK is a -200 serie, not a -100.

On the 15 A320-100 initialy operated by Air France (and Air Inter), only 6 are still in service including the very first one F-GFKA (msn 5).
2 are based at ORY (F-GGEB & F-GGEE), while 4 are based at CDG (F-GFKA / KB / KD / KE ). All of them are due to be retired within the coming months.

Air France has already retired from service/sold several of its oldest A320-200 in a recent past (F-GFKO, F-GHQA, F-GHQB, F-GLGM, F-GLGG, F-GLGH etc ...)

I saw it yesterday afternoon. I can confirm that the aircraft is F-GFKK. It was parked by Avocet alongside the two NWA 757s that are being scrapped.

I was thinking that if it was operating under an Air France call sign as Flightaware said, that it would be a charter, but I have not seen anything at all about a return flight being scheduled.

There will be no return flight for F-GFKK... She will be scrapped  Sad

Sorry, I was looking on Skyliner and looked at the wrong column. The S/N is 100 not the
series number.

Are you certain that it is scheduled for scrapping and not to be sold to another carrier?

I was wondering that too, since that MD-80 made it out maybe this one will too.
