Hi Guys

Just passed by SIA Engineering hangar today and I thought I might update those interested in CX's 2nd hand A340s.

SQ's selling them 3 x A340-313x 9V-SJA, 9V-SJB, 9V-SJC

There's one ready for delivery, however in SQ colours with a pure blue tail. Registration is B-HMX. Not too sure which ex-SQ this is, but guessing its 9V-SJA.

Well if anyone's got more info, please share it with me thanks.

Sorry! Registration is B-HXM not the other way around. Typo error.

I think the next time we pass the hangar, look at the registrations of the other 2 A340s then you will know if it is A, B or C

would you have a chance to see the interior of that A340? Is it green inside or still in SQ's colour?

when is the day of its delivery? any idea?

hope to see it soon here in Toronto.

I doubt you'll see it in Toronto. To my knowledge, these planes will be configured with the low density configuration for the daily nonstop HKG-JFK flight to be started in September.

Not too sure about the inside but it sure does look like it's gonna be wet leased somewhere coz the blue colour of SQ is still there, and so is the gold. Only things are the SQ logo and SQ titles.

I could be totally wrong but I was under the impression that the Three A340's were to be leased to Cathay and not sold.


I remember when the DC-3 was new!

I believe they will be leased to CX, but it definitely is not a wet lease. CX will use their own crew.

These aircraft will be B-HXM, HXN and HXO. First one is due at Haeco this month.

Hope they arrive in the SQ colours less tail logo !!!

These three A340-313X's now going to CX from SQ--unfortunately nobody has said if the planes are to be repainted into the current CX livery. Will SQ's own paint shop change the livery before the planes are delivered to CX?

Which also reminds me: has anyone found out which A340-300's in CX fleet will get the 193-seat configuration that will be used on the HKG-JFK non-stop flights?
