Hi All,

What aircraft is Biman flying to HKG, SIN and KUL these days as I would really like to book a trip on their DC10 before they are replaced with B777s or their B738s.

HKG should still be a DC-10.
I flew on a Biman DC-10 between Dubai and Dhaka last week. The DC-10s are mostly flying between the gulf states and Bangladesh these days, so you might consider these flights too. They are a bit hard to book online but their offices should be able to help. Be aware the DC-10s sometimes go technical and substitutions by say an A-310 or delays of 6-24 hours are common.

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

yes, that is what I am worried about! I'm going to plan plenty of time between connections.

Biman flights linking Dhaka to Singapore seem to be operated by Airbus A310-300s these days . . . wish you success (and loads of fun) with your DC-10 flights.

My friends and I came close to flying these DC-10s between Singapore and Bangkok . . . the airline withdrawn from operating on this sector just after we made our bookings last year.

HKG is still a DC10. Has been for 15+ years now!
