Had a look at your pprune posting when I got home, still can't access it from the AN network.
I don't see how DJ can immediately lease 10 A320's.
Most of the SALE A320's are up for checks except HYC. The rest are currently missing engines, apu's and components. When time permits we are trying to match original components to the aircraft as they were delivered.
Coupled to this is the fact that 2 major checks are currently being carried out on HYL (AWAS) and HYX (GATX) This ties most if not all manpower up.
The next 2 checks at this stage are HYS and CZN 733, both owned by a mob called Region air.
It really doesn't leave much to pick from when you take into account the aircraft that have left the country - HYA, HYB, HYR, HYT, & HYY. HYL is set for a desert vacation and HYX is off to Air Malta.
But then again maybe the journo is right. In 10 days the hanger may have to revert to full 24 hour operations again.
