Gulf Air A321 - Where Are They Coming From?

Sun Jun 03, 2007 9:58 pm

Gulf Air are adding four A321s in the fleet under the new business plan w.e.f July. Does anyone know where these aircraft are coming from ? as there has been no update since.

Regards,

Makes sense. Don't they favor the A319?

Yup they do favour the A319 with majority leased in from ILFC alongwith the A321s. Looks as though GF will be taking up the A321 aircraft from Spirit as their lease agreement is to expire soon.

Some are back in service, some still under maintenance, all going from fleet in the end.

I heard a rumour that QR got the jump on GF and snapped them up, never saw them in BAH last week and was in and out of there nearly everyday.
