Air Atlanta B747 Leased To Air Asia

Tue Jul 08, 2003 5:12 am

TF-ATC was leased by Air Asia from Air Atlanta Icelandic for operating Hajj flights from Malaysia earlier this year. How come this aircraft is still leased to Air Asia, and what is it doing at MAN?

Hi
This aircraft was in DUB last weekend operating an Air Atlanta Europe to Lourdes so it was maybe operating for them when you saw it in MAN.
