Skyliner showing D-ABYA 747-8 ferried to Rome for painting into a new livery. Still speculation or confirmed? I'd read a rumour a slightly revised livery was being announced first week of FebruaryJump to post
Thanks Geoff, certainly makes sense since it ferried to Basel that day!Jump to post
Can anyone help here, which Boeing 747-8i was officially handed over to a customer on the 10th December 2017? Is this MSN 37826 - has it finally been sold?
Unidentified Customer(s) Unidentified Unidentified 747-8 GE 10-Dec-2017 1
Does anyone know what registration 9M-MPR is now using at Aerotranscargo, it's flying with hex# 504E4D since 18 December 2017 but the Moldovan register isn't showing any new 747 for Aerotranscargo at all.Jump to post

Regarding engine/thrust variant - Air Baltic has the PW1521G and Swiss has the PW1524G - does anyone know what Korean went for?Jump to post

According to Planespotters.net, a quarter of ANA's 787 fleet (9/36 aircraft) is currently grounded in Haneda. Is this information correct? Why is that? Sorry if this has already been discussed here. They're correct. It's due to the engine problems. I think that was discussed in another thread somew...Jump to post
Swift acquired the contracts, and leased two airplanes from Eastern. That's all. Eastern Airlines Group has been renamed EALG Interim Solution, Inc. N276EA is still active (it is flying today), which is the other one? I have seen no activity on FR24.com for any other EA plane besides 276 in some ti...Jump to post
There's over 30 aircraft flying in Air Berlin livery right now, see here:
I think the first two might already be in Rome being painted in to Eurowings colours, so pretty soon I would say. D-ABQG positioned as BER101P on DUS-FCO 24th October, I don't see another one though? Some are clearly out of operations already, sitting right now at DUS and can spot at least four row...Jump to post
I still can't believe that tomorrow will be my last AB flight. About to go to bed now in Frankfurt and set my alarm for 4am to get that flight ex DUS.

I hope we do end up bidding on and receiving the Air Berlin narrowbody Airbus fleet. Keep ‘em coming! (I hate to talk like that about the aircraft of an airline that’s only just out of business. With every badly received quarterly investor call, I feel like we could easily end up like Air Berlin.) ...Jump to post

Here is the last banned list. Yup. The 777 is also banned.
Why are the A320s not listed there as an exemption?
Maybe cause they are leased?

I think the word on the grapevine is its 50/50 at the minute. Some of the routes seem to be doing ok and at some point they must have been doing ever better as they applied for A320 ops until it was blocked. Who applied for A320 ops and who blocked whom?

I thought that wingleted 757's were not desirable freighters - I guess not! This changed fairly recently as there are now STCs available for winglet fitted 757 freighters... so far I think around 10 aircraft are in service as freighters with winglets.

Is anyone in the know as to when A6-EHJ will be retired, and how long we've got left to try and photograph her?
I too hope they place that livery on a Boeing 787-9 but I somehow fear that's the last we'll ever see of it!
Sometimes airlines will roster pilots standby duties whilst down route.
Day 1. BOS-AMS
Day 2. Hotel standby
Day 3. AMS-BOS
So could have been called to operate from hotel standby.
All it means is that the future operator isn't known yet by the website, it definitely doesn't mean that Bombardier is producing white tails. They're published like that so that first flights are shown and if any spotters see the plane they can find the aircraft details online. I really wouldn't rea...Jump to post
It seems to make sense that ther are onbly 6 73Gs shown as leased on Planespotters.net and all taken in 1998.

Planespotters.net and the others are pretty accurate, but "on order" aircraft are only listed once a construction number is known. It doesn't mean that's all the airline plans on taking delivery of.
