VS A340-300 To Far East

Tue Apr 15, 2003 12:29 am

For the last couple of months VS' Flights to the Far East (HKG, PVG and NRT) have all been operated on the new 340-600 but due to SARS ( and everything else) I see that several flights have now reverted back to the older 300 series Airbus. Does anybody know the exact days when the 300's are used for each destination, or is it just random depending in PAX figure. Thanks!

LHR-HKG: 1/4/7

VS also flies the -300 to DEL: 3/5/7

On Amadeus.net they show that VS serves PVG and NRT with A346.

Hope that helps

Hi Cabinboy

A couple of the -600s are on maintenance at the mo and what with the SARS business going on the Far East flights aren't exactly full anyway! All PVG flts are now planned to be -600, but -300s are doing the NRT/HKG flts on a fairly random basis. Also some mid-week NRT flts are being cancelled due to the low loads....I expect HKG flts will be soon too.

Cheers
