Iberia 744 In Singapore Monday 18th?

Tue Oct 19, 2004 11:26 pm

Hi. I saw an Iberia 747-400 at the hangars in Singapore on monday (18-10-04). Anyone know which one this was? Was this one of the two existing ones, or are they getting a third? Anyone know the reg? Thanks.

Could be TF-AMB as I have not seen it as operating any IB flight the last three days. Probably down there for some maintenance checks.

Both Iberia 747-400 are operated by Air Atlanta. Registrations are TF-AMA and TF-AMB.
it would be good to see what is the reg of the one at SIA hangers, to try to deduce whether a third one is coming (if so, one would expect it to be TF-AMC)

Hey

A few weeks back TF-AMA had an emergency landing at MAD, I was there to see it. I havnt seen it doing flights, but i have seen TF-AMB doing flights, and the A340 going to TFN alot. Maybe it was a serious problem thats why it had an emergency landing?

Does anyone know what ever happend to there plan of leasing two TAM A330-200s? Maybe they went with the 744 instead.

That is strange, how come they didnt do the modification before the delivery flight? That puzzles me.
