Yesterday evening, I saw a VS 346 parked at maintenance area of NRT airport with work going on around tail area and I suspected an AOG.
It is still here this (10th) afternoon and I checked the flight status for VS 901/ 09 Jun and discovered the following.
Flight number VS 901
Departure date 09 Jun 2004
Route Tokyo (NRT) to London (LHR)
Scheduled departure time 09 Jun 11:00
Actual departure time 10 Jun 18:00
Estimated departure time 10 Jun 18:00
Scheduled arrival time 09 Jun 15:30
Actual arrival time 10 Jun 22:07
Estimated arrival time 10 Jun 22:07
A flight getting delayed is no big deal, but in view of the recent passionate discussions on the dispatch relibilty of the 346s, I post this information with the disclaimer that I am not being critical of 346 even though I am a Boeing fan.
