I just red in the "Aero International" of Juli/06 that Transaero will get 2 additional 734, 6 new 738 and 2 744. In addition to that they will get 5 A320 and 4 A340-300. That seems like a big international expansion regarding the 744 and the A340. What routes are planned with this planes?
Where will they get the 747-400 from? SIA?
What about the A340-300? Virgin Atlantic?
Quoting JoKeR (Reply 4): I think that Mojave is still "hiding" a few of those preserved machines.
First off, the UA 744s were stored at VCV, not MHV. Second, all 744s left are intended to remain with United as they are the cheapest plane to operate on a CASM basis and even come close to the trip cost of a 772ER when ownership costs are factored in.
