Hi there

These are the new "old" 320 that are being leased by Air Luxor. They are former Ansett planes and are due in Portugal this month. Can you confirm that they are in full Air Luxor colours?

Best regards

In fact these must be ex-Ansett A320-200s which were stored for some time in Mojave. These were the first A320-200s built around 1989, c/n 22 and 23 respectively.

Both of them were in full Air Luxor colours. Are they going to be leased to MX, or did MX lease them to Air Luxor and are already painted?

Nope MX is not leasong 320s to Air Luxor.

Those 2 20s belong to AWAS. N220AN got here on November 03rd, 2003. N230AN got here on October 31st, 2003. Since then, both aircraft have been here. The thing is that they got a lot of failures! Both aircraft were due and ready to fly to Portugal three weeks ago. But Luxor didn't took the aircraft. They were move to right corner of MX mx base and last there a week. A week later they said that Luxor was ready to take the deliveries! But surprise! More failures found. After a few days of work last Sunday they flew to ACA for a text flight! Apparently, last thing I heard both are leaving this Saturday or Sunday.
