the original Ghana Airways DC-10 (9G-ANB) has not been used for several weeks now, it is rumoured that GH
doesn't have the money to pay for the necessary Checks. They have used the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 of JAT Yugoslav Airlines for a few weeks and were to lease two ex-Hawaiian aircraft, but apparently this deal has been cancelled.
Now they struggle to wet-lease equipment to operate their flights. Last week's flight to Hamburg (HAM
) and Düsseldorf (DUS
) was cancelled because the Boeing 767-200 of Air Zimbabwe which was due to operate this flight didn't have the permission to fly to Germany. Perhaps this permission has now been obtained, but today's flight may also be operated by a Cameroon Airlines Boeing 767-200 which has been operating for GH
in the past. It should be a -200 series aircraft.
Btw, today's flight is more than four hours late, so I hope you don't get too cold at the airport! Unfortunately I can't make it to the airport today.
