Two More A340-600 For SAA

Fri Jan 30, 2004 6:22 pm

SAA (South African Airways) yesterday (Thursday, January 29,2004) received two more A340-600's - this is number 5 & 6 of 9 ordered.

Apparently the first of six new A340-300E will be delivered in February

Did you get that news from justplanes because they made the same mistake.

For your information ZS-SNF and ZS-SNG are number 6 and 7.

ZS-SNA 410 = 1
ZS-SNB 417 = 2
ZS-SNC 426 = 3
ZS-SND 531 = 4
ZS-SNE 534 = 5
ZS-SNF 547 = 6
ZS-SNG 557 = 7
ZS-SNH 589
ZS-SNI 594
ZS-SNJ 630

I assume the last three are H, I and J.

ZS-SNF and ZS-SNG have been hanging around TLS in full colours since early December '03...is there any definitive reason why they weren't taken up earlier? There were all sorts of rumours about lack of cash and/or dissatisfaction with A340-600 performance...

They don't just get painted and then delivered the same day!. Look at their first A343, thats line number 544 but not even a picture of it.
