Was hoping somebody in the know could give me an update of which BA 744s are currently in storage and if there is plans to put more into storage.

For Cardiff:

G-BNLC B744 (Stored at Cardiff)
G-BNLB B744 (Stored at Cardiff)
G-CIVJ B744 (Arrived at Cardiff: 20/02/10 MX) (Leaves:?)
G-CIVF B744 (Arrived at Cardiff: 15/03/10 for MX) (Leaves:?)
G-CIVB B744 (Arrived at Cardiff: 30/03/10 for MX) (Leaves:?)

And then another 5-6 in long term storage at VCV?

Taking G-CIVB as an example as it arrived in Cardiff yesterday for scheduled MX, does anybody know how long it will be there? C-check or D-check? How long does a 744 spend there for line MX C/D-check?

Cheers

Will they be withdrawing 744s from service on a one-for-one basis (or at all) when the 77Ws arrive?

Quoting Qantas744ER (Thread starter):

Its leaving tommorrow 01 Apr.

Aircraft go to Cardiff for different checks. About 4 weeks is average I suppose.

I had the honour to fly on NLG this past summer from LAX.

Will any of the birds at VCV return to service?

Thanks steve!

I am hopeful the newer ones will be back in service as soon as demand is up again!
