BG61/BKK-RGN-DAC on 13OCT02 is loaded with an AB6 as equipment in the CRS.

Did Biman Bangladesh lease currently any Airbus A300-600? If yes from which airline, for how long and which configuration? Maybe from TG?

Sorry TG992, you are right, its an AB3. I'm arriving with an TG AB6. Sorry for confusion. TG doesn't have AB3, right? Does China Northern?

No, all the Chinese carriers have fairly modern equipment, and there are only A300-600s operating there.

Thanks CXflyboy. Does anyone know which airlines in Asia are still operating the AB3?

Sorry, have been to fast, found a list my self:
PIA Pakistan
Iran Air
Mahan Air
Indian Airlines

Could Biman operate this flight with a PIA AB3?

I hope they are not phasing out their DC10's...

Are they looking for a replacement of this nice bird?

Regards,
Frederic

Frederic, I think they just got a "new" Dc10s which have been used by Canadian and you can see it on their nice livery which is different the the old green/white one. Be happy that you get visited by them at BRU ...

PIA operates A-300B4-200 9 of them. And 6 A-310-300
Indian Airlines opeartes A-300B2-100 8 of them and 2 A-300B4-200.
And yeah may be it would be good for PIA as well to have a deal here.

Yes Swissgabe, I know, he was already several times in Brussels.

But I heard that BG has problems at the moment with their DC10's at EBBR (noise regulations).

I am hoping we don't get a replacement for the DC10...

So where could this AB3 (operating BKK-RGN-DAC BG61 on 13OCT02) coming from?

Maybe it's just an A310 with the wrong flight plan. Airlines file the wrong aircraft type all the time. It's not uncommon.

Bravo45,

Garuda returned all their A300-600s a while ago, along with their MD11s. Now they only fly the A300B4.

Thanks for the update Cx Flyboy. My figures were old so I had a feeling that I may need an update. Just if possible, any idea why?? Were they leased? If they owned them, they are pretty good birds, what went wrong? Also with the MD11s.

You are wrong with Garuda, they also returned their A300Bs some time ago...

Cx flyboy
It could be a reason but I don't believe. When I checked the timetable a few weeks ago it was showing an A310 and the "changed" it to an AB3 one week ago. It is not only this flight, there are also a few domestic flights like DAC-CGP loaded with an AB3 so I would bet there has to be an AB3 around DAC ...
