Air Namibia hasn't had a clear fleet structure since 98.
747SP to 767 back to 747SP to B744M to A330 back to B744M back to A330 and considering A343....I'm sure this list will grow steadily over the next year until SAA finally takes over the Namib market as well!
They got the 744M at a bargain from Boeing as I understand, as it was designated for Asiana, which couldn't pick it up during Asian Crisis numero uno. It will damn hard to sell this baby at a resonable price because
is 'flooding' the market for used 744s
b.) FAA restrictions on Combi A/Cs
Maybe cargolux or Atlas etc. will buy and convert it....but only an idea of mine.
I don't see why Air Namibia needs 2 A340s. One is okay..but two for what?!
The A330 is more suitable for them as it hauls as much cargo (maybe a bit less due to weight restrictions) with 2 engines and is able to fly WDH-FRA
. It's probably even going to be profitable on routes like WDH-JNB
