Dragonair (Air China) - Airbus A330-342?

Wed Mar 07, 2007 9:16 pm

Hey A.Netter's.... Big grin

Just did a search in the database and came across this interesting picture...  old   white 
Did I miss the boat on this merger?  Confused
Photographer quotes "Air China 930 to Pudong is lining up 34L." When did Dragonair merge with Air China / Air China merge with Dragonair???

Weren't CA using some of KA's A330s for some of their routes? Anyway, if you look closely, there's an Air China sticker next to the KA lettering.

As far as the mergers go, KA is now wholy part of CX while CA and CX have share holdings in each other. Confusing really...
Types flown: B738, B772ER, B773, B77W, B744, A310, A320, A321, A332, A333, A343, A388

Is it compression or this bird is in need of a serious wash or paint job?

Not to mention the airline could do with a less eurowhite livery.
I want the European Union flag on airliners.net!
