What a mess with Aerolineas Argentinas !

Some months ago they were on the verge to acquire A330s , but now are looking at the 787 , for delivery no latter than next year.
Probably some slots left due to cancellations will allow them to take the first in 2011.

And now they are looking at the A320 , despite having begunn to build a 737-700 (and 738) fleet.

To resume

WB will be either 787 or A330.No interest in A350XWB yet.

NB will be A32X or 73NG , or both ?

One thing seems to be done ; E190 for Austral

What will be their next announcement ? AR is not a borring airline !

Remember the A380 orders under Marsans. Aerolineas is still very messy at the moment however things have definatley improved. I will talk to our very dear friend an A340 captain who should be able to tell us what is what here.

They don't sound serious at all. In fact with all the news coming from this airline it sounds distinctly bi-polar!

Still, I hope they go for Airbus

If Aerolineas was to choose the 787 as their sole widebody aircraft (which was raised as a possible scenario in the linked article), what would this mean for EZE-AKL? I must admit that I'm not totally clued up on changes to the regulations that govern extended range operations and the 787 programme, so go easy on me! Would it be possible?


It sounds like english, but I can't understand a word you're saying

Would be nice to see some 787 with AR....
At the same time...What to say... i'm skeptical that AR now is looking to the 787.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Quoting unclekoru (Reply 3):

Actually nothing, the sole widebody theory will only be applicable once AR has an ETOPS rating, which it does not hold. So, A340s will keep operating, especially with no actual ETOPS rating able to cover the South Pacific.

Quoting FCKC (Thread starter):

73G, that was set last year when the A32S were discarded off the MoU with Airbus.

Quoting FCKC (Thread starter):
Some months ago they were on the verge to acquire A330s

That agreement fell due to the inability of securing the financing for the operation.

Yep, especially after being ran into the ground by Spanish and Local idiots!

Quoting FCKC (Thread starter):
And now they are looking at the A320

I have no idea were that came from, but it is certainly false.

Saludos,

That's how I feel about it too. I'd love to see some Dreamliners across the river, but it's really hard to take them seriously.
For so long the Marsan's A330s and 340s were "a done deal", that looking at this announcement just doesn't bring too many hopes. Some articles I've read question this announcement as there is no clear way apparently to finance it. We'll have to wait and see I guess...

First they get 737-700, such flights as EZE to Bogota are nonstop. Then the plans becomes A320, ok a fine plane but teh 737-700 just got into the fleet. Boeing 787's, these sound like early production over weight 787-8's, are very ambitious for an airline like AR with very limited resources and infrastructure.

AR should find some gently used A340's to expand their international fleet. With experience already with the type, staying with Airbus would be the wise and cautious choice, these are not days for Grand Visions of 787's at AR.
