Austrian/Lauda Fleet Questions

Mon Dec 06, 2004 5:08 am

I hear that Austrian/Lauda will be combining together... therefore Ive got a couple of questions.

a.) will Lauda 763 be painted in Austrian NC colors?

b.) with the A330/A340 and 763 fleet integrated, where will be the assignments. I.E 330/340's to Asia/India, 763s to North America or vice versa.?

hi,

a - i guess this "symbolic act" will take place after the psychological effects of the integration are fully settled

b - currently the Shanghai rotation is operated with Airbus Equipment
during Summer 2005 the schedule says the 4/7 evening flights to JFK will see 763 equipment

i have found this page : http://www.austrian-planepics.com/ with the fleetstatus of OS, as well as the fleet rebranding status

Mark

Sorry this is off topic but I can't seem to find the address of the Montreal aviation enthusiasts website. I'm pretty sure you would know the website...

Thanks

Rickster, any news to the rumors that OS would get SU's 777s and get rid for their 342s ?

I am guessing that the A330s will go where they have more cargo and the 767s will go where they have lighter loads and need the lowest trip cost. The A340s should go to longer range and higher load routes, with the 777s on the heaviest, longest ones

There was an article in an Austrian newspaper today stating a potential plane swap with Aeroflot being "nothing but a rumor".

Rickster,

I think the downgrade to B763 for PVG may have to do with the maintenance on some of the B772 equipment during that period.

The VIE-SIN-MEL flights are being scaled back to B763 during that period too.

OS-A330 and Rickster; many thanks for the info! Nice to hear that Aeroflot will keep their 777s for now. Perhaps OS/NG will get 7E7s to replace their 340s, 330s and 763s ? Although they will probably wait a while to do it.
