A330 and A340 write off - retirement - scrapping thread - 2018

Tue Dec 26, 2017 10:32 pm

Only feel fair to have a thread on the B777's successful counterpart (well the A340 was a counterpart at least, but not necessarily successful by today's standards)
I'd Imagine the A340's list is about half flying half not flying.

Starting with the A330's

I actually thought some of China Eastern's A343s are gone already (their pilots mentioned this when they sent the bird to storage). I'm not in LDE though, so could anyone confirm this?

Also I thought the two oldest Finnair birds are there for scrapping as well.

Cheers

The Air Berlin A330-200s will be heading over Virgin Atlantic early next year. I think we have one A340-600 leaving the fleet as well from Virgin Atlantic.

American's A330-300s are reaching Golden Oldie status. It's all relative, of course, but they go back to the early oughts, when transat ops with them were a novelty. They also have Pratt engines, which were less popular with that bird.

There is talk that the influx of A350s will hasten their AA demise, but what if the latter are not taken up? Will AA let them soldier on? I can't imagine much of a used market for them.

BTW I went out of my way to ride one last week for the first time. It's a nice sleek bird and looks good in the AA livery, but every time we hit a dip in the runway or taxiway, the center overheads would rattle like a plastic chandolier. It's a uniquely A330 experience.

I wonder if similar to how NW flew DC-10’s until 2007or2008 if an airline can pick up some low cycle A340’s and fly them as long as fuel is cheap.

AC's A330-300's are getting pretty ancient as well but there seems to be no timeline established for retirement yet.

Hi,

I flew this lady today:

Wow, the interior was worn and dirty.
The personal screens were not retina, shall we say....

A comfy ride though.....

If I have time I might reorder them to go by airline. Time's like this I wish I had Excel and knew how to use it.

BTW does anyone else feel like some of these planes are kicking the can early? I know airline business is cutthroat and they are fuel efficiency junkies but the skies are getting boring with all these new 787's and A350's.

The A330 with the long exhaust cones are my favorite. Flew on Qatar Airways Olympics livery back in 2005. Cleanest plane ever.

VS's G-VNAP is no longer stored, it's in MNL being readied for service re-entry. One of the ex-MU 346's B-6055 is also out of storage, it went recently to AUH presumably for overhaul, but I haven't read about it's fate from there.

Also, you can take D-AIGY off your list of stored A340's as this one is currently in Rome being prepared for Eurowings service entry.

Re: A340 To be scrapped

It's getting crowded in Twente:

AELS “taking off” at Twente Airport

AELS will welcome 3 aircraft at Twente Airport in January for disassembly, one Boeing 747 and two Airbus A340s. Air France will fly two A340-300s, one on the 19th and the other on the 22nd to AELS. The former KLM aircraft PH-BFF will also make its last flight on the 22nd of January. The flight of the Boeing 747-400 will be executed by KLM on behalf AELS, the new owner of the airframe. All three aircraft will be disassembled by AELS according to the highest environmental standards. Weather conditions might cause the flight to be delayed or rescheduled.

If you are interested in the arrival of the aircraft, we suggest you keep an eye on Facebook or Twitter for updates. The arrival of the aircraft can be seen from the spotter’s hill next to the airfield. Please only make use of the designated areas, there is a nature reserve around the airport that needs to be protected. It’s not possible to be on the airport when the aircraft arrives, also not for the media. Visiting the aircraft after arrival and during the disassembly is also not possible. We ask everybody to send their best picture of the arrival to info@aels.nl. The best picture of each aircraft we will reward again with a cut out aircraft window.

January 19th

Model: Airbus A340-300
Registration: F-GLZI
MSN: 84
First Flight: 12-07-1995
Age: 22 years, 6 months
Flight number: AF370V
Route: LFPG-EHTW
ETD (ETOT) CDG/LFPG 8:00Z (9.00 local)
ETA ENS/EHTW 8:50Z (9:50 local)

January 22nd

Model: Airbus A340-300
Registration: F-GLZR
MSN: 307
First Flight: 19-10-1999
Age: 18 years, 3 months
Flight number: t.b.d.
Route: LFPG-EHTW
ETD (ETOT) CDG/LFPG 8:00Z (9.00 local)
ETA ENS/EHTW 8:50Z (9:50 local)

Model: Boeing 747-400
Registration: PH-BFF
MSN: 24202
First Flight: 30-01-1990
Age: 28 years
Flight number: KL9879
Route: EHAM-EHTW
ATC Call sign: KLM747
Aircraft Name: Freetown
ETD (EOBT) SPL/EHAM 11:00Z (12.00 local)
ETA EHTW 11:55Z (12:55 local)

So that's one Air France A340 this Friday (F-GLZI), another AF A340-300 (F-GLZR) next Monday and the KLM 747-400 (PH-BFF) that afternoon.

These are planes that are 18+ years old, with sharply declining values due to them being 4 engined, difficult to refit as freighters and likely due for a major check anyway so scrapping is the only financially sound choice to do.

Here is a link as the long history of the airport including the recent aircraft being scrapped there:

I'm surprised that F-GLZR didn't transfer over to Joon. I also notice that the A343s that still have significant resale or lease value are the ex-SQ ones with a higher MTOW of 275t.

BTW, does anyone know what happened to JY-AIC and JY-AID? These two were MSN 14 and 22.

Two of Air France's A340's will be scrapped in Twente, The Netherlands. AELS will receive the on 19 January ( F-GLZI , 1995 build ) and 22 January ( F-GLZR , 1999 build ). These will be the 2nd and 3rd A340 the company scrapes, the first one was a former Swiss a/c last year.

Glad to say that flew on F-GLZR over the summer from DTW-CDG, nice ride with no rattling. All that aircraft needed was just a little TLC.

I wonder if similar to how NW flew DC-10’s until 2007or2008 if an airline can pick up some low cycle A340’s and fly them as long as fuel is cheap.

Fuel may be cheap(ish) but unfortunately maintenance isn't. It is still a large part of the cost of flying. Those high-thrust CFM56s need lots of love.

It's in short term storage since it's arrival in DUB, hasn't flown revenue yet, due to come online in March, winter schedule didn't require it.

This one was murdered already... here in Brazil.
I think the cockpit section was preserved, maybe for a simulator. Saw a pic on Whatsapp but don't know where it came from!
I wonder when people will understand:
Embraer 190 or simply E190, not ERJ-190. E-Jets are NOT ERJs!
Boeing 747-8, not Boeing 747-800. Same goes for 787.
Airbus A320, not Airbus 320.
Airbii does not exist.

Yeah, these two were taken out by the LTTE when they attacked Bandaranaike Intl. in July 2001. Not much remained of these very new birdies... :(



Like the Afriqiyah and Libyan airways A330s destroyed in tripoli a few years back :(

I'm pretty sure that's why the 2 TS 332s are there. They're parked during the winter and brought back into service for the peak transatlantic season.

Fuel may be cheap(ish) but unfortunately maintenance isn't. It is still a large part of the cost of flying. Those high-thrust CFM56s need lots of love.


My experience with regards to maintenance cost per flight hour of the CFM56-5Cs are very different. Excellent time on wing with superb cost per FH for years and years.

And...?

Those high thrust engines won't be ageing backwards, will they? The older they get, the higher the bills start becoming. It takes at the very least a competent engineering staff to look after them. The -5C will need nursing as the time goes by on that wing.

You seem offended. Why? I simply shared a different experience in non-offending wording, which seems to be a reasonable approach in a forum.

On the topic: No, they won't be ageing backwards. However ageing for a modern turbofan is very relative. As is maintenance cost development. Over the years, most wear and tear components would have been replaced multiple times already. Especially hot section airfoils, combustion chamber liners, etc.. Consequently, apart from inflation and normalized for LLPs, which aren't the largest factor in long haul engines, cost musn't really go up dramatically, if at all. Especially if you factor in the sheer amount of surplus parts coming from tear down engines of disassembled A/C.
Hence, I simply doubt that CFM56-5C maintenance cost is the driver to retire those old 343s.

But as always, I could be wrong. :)

Do you happen to know the end of the leasing contracts for the two remaining frames? They have a modernised cabin interior AFAIK....

2020 IIRC. Yes, they were the only two that had their interiors and on board entertainment brought up to the A330 fleet standards, as all along they have been the two frames the airline intended to hold on to until it decides on the new type for the long haul fleet.

I think so. AR today announced it is increasing MAD to 10x w and there is no way they can meet the schedule without these 2 A343s. - which will continue to fly to MAD only, on the late evening flight. New day flight (leaves EZE @ 12:20 PM, arriving MAD super early around 6 AM) will be on the A332s.

Here's a pic taken earlier this week showing the last 4 340s @ AR's EZE maintenance base. LV-CSD & SF are awaiting their return to the lessor, while LV-FPU & PV (the latter with its Skyteam livery) await their new flights that evening.
