Will these B773ER eventually replace the A346 which CX have in their or do the intend to keep for some time? I mean 3 A346 seem pretty small for an airline like CX.
|Quoting RJpieces (Reply 3):|
Not sure if these two will replace them exactly, but I'd say the chances of the 3 A346s remaining in the fleet when their lease is up is low....
|Quoting HB-IWC (Reply 4):|
As I understand, Airbus has been offering such a good deal on these 3 airframes to CX that the airline had no other choice than to keep the aircraft in the fleet during the last lease extension. Now that CX is firmly going for the B77W, Airbus might not be interested in offering a continuation of the deal either.
|Quoting PM (Reply 5):|
I thought they were leased from ILFC and not Airbus?
|Quoting HB-IWC (Reply 10):|
That's right, but still, CX is believed to enjoy such a great deal on those 3 airframes that it would have been almost criminal not to extend that lease agreement that last time around.
