I was reading in the new issue of Airways (CAL A340/BR 77W on the cover) that EVA Air is supposed to be adding three A330-300s to its fleet in the near future; has anyone heard anything about this. I hadn't heard about it (and I'm usually aware of new A330 operators!)

Perhaps they are taking the three A333 that Virgin Atlantic isn't taking (according to rumours on the VS thread currently active here on A.net).


Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

They're supposed to be going to China Airlines.

Makes sense for BR to add the -300 for the TSA routes. Flights from TSA need seats, not legs. CI is flying the -300 from TSA currently, GE will be flying the -300 from later this year (IIRC). NH and JL are flying the 767-300.

BR is at a disadvantage with the -200 from TSA, especially long-haul configured -200s. TSA will remain a regional, business airport, so -300s will add precious seats for BR.



I'm tired of the A vs. B sniping. Neither make planes that shed wings randomly!

"Meanwhile, EVA Airways said that it would lease three A330-300s before the fourth quarter next year for Asian routes."

EVA have GE on their A330s and GECAS just ordered a dozen -300s from Airbus.

But this Gecas order isn't likely to meet the BR timeframe unless Gecas picked up some slots canceled by someone else -? Flyington, but would GE be able to provide engines that quickly anyway? IIRC the Flyington planes were Pratt.

CI are taking the Roller powered VS planes on lease so being GE powered may not be a must for BR either. Interesting to see what Transasia will pick for their engines.

I am surprised that TSA can accommodate so many A330s. From what I remember when flying from there, it is a rather small airport with limited gate capacity and a smallish apron (not so much the overall size, but the depth of it).

They are not going to be there all at the same time are they? Duh~!

Of course not, but check out this google map shot to get an idea what I mean:

On the picture, you see MD80s and ATR at the 12 gate positions. The apron to the right is used by the air force and off limits, I guess.

Before Taoyuan/CKS International was built, TSA was the only taipei airport and 747s regularly flew out. After TPE opened there were changes to the taxiways and aprons which restricted the plane size.
