Malev's First New 767-300ER

Sun Mar 18, 2007 11:18 pm

Hi Guys!

First I want to appologize for doing Copyright violation. It was my first picture I loaded up here and I did not really know how it worked out. Next time I should read the rules first.  Smile

So here is a link.

http://www.flugzeugbilder.de/show.php?id=600923

So again, when will MA get it and where will it fly?


Best regards. Tom

Are KLM replacing their 767-300s with A330-200s?

Delivery is scheduled for this month, so assume it will depart AMS very soon.

Hi Guys!

Can someone explain to me why they paint the Hungarian Reg on it and overtape it after with the Netherland Reg?

Quoting TommyBP251b (Reply 5):

Because they have painted the reg on the aircraft during the painting process in AMS, but it isn't yet on the Hungarian register, and still on the Dutch register and is still flying, so it has to display the Dutch reg AFAIK.

Didn't Malev operate 763ER (one or two) alongside their two 762ERs for a short time in the 1990s?
If yes, then it's not the first time.

This first HA-LHC came in even before the B767-27GER, which were both delivered on April 1st, 1993. It was intended for Canadian Airlines, but CP was in such a bad financial shape then that the aircraft was never delivered.

As others have already said, it's not the first B763 for MA.

Quoting Afay1 (Reply 12):

We can only hope, but since the aircraft spent a very few days only in hangar after KLM withdrew it from its fleet, I expect KLM seat layout...

Malév has decided to phase out the B762s and replace them with 3 B763. This process will end in 2009. so every year from now, a new B763 will come and one B762 will leave the fleet during the winter time. Moreover MA announced BKK for summer schedule as well as 15 NRT charters (note: these charters are different from JL summer charters to BUD).
The new B763 will be registered as HA-LHC and it is supposed to fly on BUD-YYZ-BUD route during this summer season, however, I expect that due to high demand we will see it sometimes on both JFK and BKK flight as well.

This is fabulous news, I hope this represents a step towards an eventual overhaul of their longhaul fleet. Their short-haul fleet, I've heard, is nothing to cry about though. I'll be flying MA later this week on an FCO-BUD-FCO run (737-600 both ways). Now we just need to get CSA to pick up some 763's to help those A310's they've been clinging onto...

Not that the A310's are to be taken lightly- I was lucky enough to fly PRG-JFK in C Class on a 310 in 2002 and the service was simple outstanding.

slightly offtopic, but they are likely to pick the A330/A350 instead of the B767/B787.

if you fly on C class, you will have a very comfy _real_ C class seat. if you fly Y class, try to get a seat in the first 4 row as they feature C class seats with some extra inches of legroom. Have a nice fly!

I thought MA was planning on having a "signature" interior for HA-LHC. Perhaps Aeroplex at BUD will install the new seats when she arrives in Budapest. I believe Aeroplex did the interior upgrades to the previous HA-LHC.

Since Air bridge wants to invest in MA and expand its capacity I'm hopping for a small B787 or A350 order relatively soon.

Well, don't expect so much  Smile The "new" long-haul fleet will be complete in 2009. Boeing has some killer number of orders for the B787 which occupies the factory lines until a while. A350 EIS is around 2012-2013. Or even later, sorry, I cannot follow Airbus... And MA is unlikely to be one of the early-customers for any of those types. So, to be realistic, those B763s will fly for MA until 2016 at least...

The aircraft is still in AMS and I wonder what else can they do now, since all the paint work and test flights are done... I guess it's getting a new interior...

Hey Dean,

I know, wishful thinking. I guess it's all up to Malev's new owners. If AirBridge wants MA to have a stronger presence in the Asian market and increase the number of long-haul charters, a larger long-haul fleet will be required.

Once LHA is withdrawn from the fleet in the fall, MA will be back to 2 B767. Once the second B763 arrives LHB will be withdrawn. Malev's two B762s have a very low number of cycles therefore making them very attractive for future customers.

Do you know the seating capacity for the LHC? Malev originally said that the B763s will have 40 more seats than the B762s. I hope MA will try to maintain its reputation as having very spacious B767s.

Nope. The first B762 will be withdrawn in the same time when the second B763 arrives. So the number of the long-haul aircraft won't decrease.

16 C + 213 Y = 229 pax - the aircraft will arrive to BUD on the 20th of March.
Also, there are rumours about lie-flat C product (what I would warmly welcome) and PTV on Y. Tomorrow I can tell you what is true from these rumours...

Hi,

Some update on the topic: The aircraft is still in AMS due to unexpected maintenance works on the engine(s). During the test flights some minor engine failures were discovered by the crew. The aircraft is now in the hanger, again, and it's quite sure that it won't fly to BUD before 28 March. MA could be in a little trouble, because the summer schedule will be live from 02:01 26 March and serving JFK daily, YYZ 5 / week and BKK 2 / week is impossible with 2 B762...

Interesting news, especially since the last MA B763 (HA-LHD) had engine problems as well. So was PH-BZM flying for KLM with engine issues?

I foresee MA cancelling some YYZ or JFK flights. Like you said, 2 B762s are just not enough to maintain the summer long-haul schedule.

I think none of the long-haul flights will be cancelled, but it's quite likely that BKK will be downgraded to B738 for this time. (possibly with fuel stop in DXB). But lets hope it won't affect more than a few flights...

I believe MA is one of only a few carriers that chose the CF6s for the -200ERs.

I know it may seem somewhat superficial but...they could get a lot of business out of a re-haul of their livery. Like many of the former eastern block countries and many of the current russian and CIS airline liveries (except Aeroflot which is fantastic) - the style of the color scheme has a lot to do with the perceived sophistication (safety etc) of the airline.

Also, like Royal Jordanian, I wouldn't be surprised to see One World influence a 787 purchase for Malev. It's also more appropriately sized for them.

Lastly, I've heard great things about Malev's service - is that the opinion of fellow a-neters?

True, MA has had the same c/s for a while now but I think it's still works. Not that a little change would hurt, but I doubt anyone associates the current scheme with Hungary's past history. MA has never really had any safety issues.

Agreed, with the airline joining OneWorld and being in private hands now, the chances of an B787 order are somewhat better. But don't expect anything for years unless the airline vastly expands it's long-haul network.

Hey Kriss!

You are my real MA-Expert. I have a question on a slighty different topic.

Which planes are checked in the Lufthansa Technik Hangar in BUD. Is it mostly LH 737 or also MA planes. I know there is another Hangar next to LH one more closely to T2. I guess the last one mentioned is the one where most MA planes are checked. Who is the owner of the non-LH Technik-Hangar at BUD?

Thx. Tom

That would ACE Aeroplex.
http://www.aeroplex.com/index.php

I've been somewhat confused as well with the maintenance contracts at BUD. I know that MA owned a part of Lufthansa Technik, and they also owned the majority of ACE. With MA being sold, I'm totally in the dark as to the current situation between MA and ACE, Lufthansa technik. I believe Lufthansa Tech did most of the B737 and A320 maintenance while ACE did the widebodies.

If one of the big leasing companies (e.g. ILFC, GECAS) have them available, maybe MA could lease new 787s from them. Just a possibility worth mentioning.  Wink

Again, a quite unpleasant update on the topic: The crew who went to AMS to take home the aircraft, came home... without the aircraft  Smile Actually more than hundred _minor_ failures were recorded during the test flight(s) and there was one quite big problem with one engine as well, which has to be replaced before delivery to MA. Estimated arrival time to BUD is last day of March -- first days of May, nobody knows exactly...

Tomorrow, 28 March, Budapest Airport: MA (738), BA (320), AY (320) and RJ (320) will celebrate MA joining to Oneworld. The 4 aircraft will go under water salute in the same time and will be open for press.

This sounds very strange for a plane that has been in service until recently. Either they did a very lousy job overhauling her, or KLM must be using a kind of MEL policy; as long as it flies it's good enough.

Again, a quite unpleasant update on the topic: The crew who went to AMS to take home the aircraft, came home... without the aircraft Actually more than hundred _minor_ failures were recorded during the test flight(s) and there was one quite big problem with one engine as well, which has to be replaced before delivery to MA. Estimated arrival time to BUD is last day of March -- first days of May, nobody knows exactly...

Wow!! That is very surprising, I would have thought that KLM keeps it's planes in better shape.

Tomorrow, 28 March, Budapest Airport: MA (738), BA (320), AY (320) and RJ (320) will celebrate MA joining to Oneworld. The 4 aircraft will go under water salute in the same time and will be open for press.

I hope all the BUD spotters will be out in full effect. Too bad LHC won't be the plane that is representing MA.

Don't these delivery test flights often turn up many minor problems? An airline taking delivery of an aircraft would want everything to work before accepting it, even if everything wasn't working for the previous owner. I'm sure there are issues that KL could have known about but ignored because they were not safety-critical. Would the engine problem then be related to performance?

Dean,
Do you know if MA is planning on applying the Oneworld sticker to its aircraft anytime soon? I was surprised to see LHC coming out of the paint shop without the emblem.

It was only because the estimated delivery date was originally before 1 April, 2007. Usually, stickers are really easy to apply so I wouldn't be surprised if they do it during the aircraft is being checked at the end of a day or whenever...

Dean, I have to appologise!

I guess she arrived yesterday! I picked up my parents at BUD this morning and there she was standing in front of the ACE Aeroplex Hangar. But I was not so sure, if it was really the new plane, so I need a confirmation! From the distance I could not really see if it was a 762 or 763, but she looked long, so it must been the new 763. And the white colour was nice and shining. The MA 762 from JFK landed on 13R while I was waiting for 4U from CGN with my parents on. It looked definetly shorter. I know how planes look like, so don't blame me now, that I am not knowing what I am talking about. I was just not quite sure if it was the new one, because it was nearly 2 km away and an ATR in between me and the 763 making the view even more difficult.

On a side note: 4U frrom CGN had 35 minutes delay cause there was no push-back-truck available in CGN, and the pilot said: CGN should spent more money on offering jobs as a push back driver. Is it a common problem in CGN during the morning 4U rush hour?

I guess the celebration is today! I saw a RJ A321 landing today ( 29/3) around 11 o'clock local time. Due to the fact that RJ has no regular flights to BUD, the celebration must be today. Confirmationfrom someone is needed!

Is this why 4U is leasing MD-80 over the summer? Powerbacks at CGN?  Big grin

Back on topic, congrats to Malev on the delivery of their 763ER.
Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

HA-LHC is in operation now. Unfortunately there will not be PTV's in economy.
