Hey all,

I was on Wikipedia going through the current fleet for BIMAN Bangladesh and noticed that they have 2 A345, albeit leased. I never realised this was the case. Does anybody know where they have come from and what routes they might be flying on.

Thanks in advance.

That's a wrong information on Wikipedia.

423 pax in the A345!!  Wow!

I would take this info from Wiki with a grain of salt.

Most definitely don't.

Fleet is 3 no A310 and a 772ER allowed into Europe.

With the DC10s serviceability suspect at best and banned from the EU. They still fly a few regional services to Singapore and into the Gulf from time to time

THEY DO HAVE a B747 used for pilgrim flights into Saudi as well.

Regionally they have two B738s and a few F28s on the books.

Like the DC10s the F28s serviceability is dubious.

THIS ARLINE IS A MESS and politically corrupt.

I don't doubt the corrupt as well as the mess that BIMAN are in and have been for a number of years. On the off chance do you know where I could find out where their Business Class on the B737 looks like?

Flew on both few years ago, I thought the DC10 was rather shabby but that was nothing, absolutely nothing, compared to the complete junk that is their F28 fleet! For the first time I was actually petrified on an aircraft. Never ever again!

They still have F28s flying? I thought most crashed in various runway overruns and belly landings.

Frightening is the word, I remember vividly a terrifying departure from Chittagong in an F28 in a tropical storm. The depth of water on the runway appeared to impede the aircraft on its take off run and I can still see the net (yes net) at the end of the runway that narrowly missed the wheels on lift off. I agree with sq_ek_freak - never agin. It was a real pleasure to board a Singapore Airlines flight the next day to get out of Dakar.

According to CH-Aviation, there fleet consists of the following:

3 A310-300
2 B737-800
1 B747-200
2 B747-400
1 B777-200
4 DC-10-30
4 F28 MK4000
17 total

The 747s are wet-leased. Aside from LHR, BG flies to FCO in Europe, but a bulk of their flying is to the Middle East and Far East.

BG was suppose to get new 777s to replace their long-haul fleet but it was contingent on financing by the US import-export bank.

The airline lacks any strategic vision or plan, BG is run almost exclusively on an ad-hoc basis.
