With the recent release of the South Afircan Airway winter timetables for 2007/08 and 'retiring' all their remaining fleet of B747-400's by the end of October does anyone have any credible sources where they might end up?
ZS-SAK/SAX/SAY/SAZ are RR powered and SBK and SBS are GE powered...Would of thought any RR and GE's powered which appear on the used market would be snapped up quite quickly. The GE powered ones are less than 10 years old.
I know CX is converting some more of their pax fleet to BCF's so maybe they might end up in HKG and maybe Oasis might take the GE ones. On the other hand QF is pushing their fleet hard and could do with a couple before the A380's arrive, help accelerate the B743's disposal also.
Please let's keep AI and UA out of this thread.
