An update on the deivery schedule for Frontier:
An A318 (ship number 807) will not arrive later this month as previously planned. An engine was damaged during a test flight in Hamburg and will need to be repaired before the aircraft is accepted. Ship 807 is not estimated to be accepted until at least a month after its original delivery date. Does anyone have photos or more information on the aircraft and the incident?
However, we will continue to take delivery of our 33rd A319- Ship number 934. Our employees have been notified of the following delivery schedule:
Start Ground Checks: 22 September 2004
Acceptance Flight: 23 September 2004
Technical Acceptance Completion: 27 September 2004
Transfer of Title: 28 September 2004
Repositioning Flight to Phoenix: 29 September 2004
As usual, the aircraft will pass customs in Bangor, Maine and have post delivery modifications accomplished in Phoenix.
Happy flying and warm regards.
