TU 204 For Blue Wings?

Tue Oct 23, 2007 8:53 am

I have been browsing Wiki on some airlines that I know very little about and on the English version of Wiki I have read that they have 5 TU 204CM on order. I find that hard to believe and have found nothing on the German site.
I know QW havs a lot of traffic to Russia but with A320 and A321 on order I see no need for a TU 204.
It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

Another question regarding Blue Wings:

They have 5 former Jet Blue A320 and the aircraft still have the antenna for Live TV, are the aircraft from the inside still equiped with the Jet Blue interior and PTVs ?

It is Wikipedia, not "Wiki". Wiki is the technology (Wiki Wiki Web) it is using, a type of website.

As much as I would love to see that, I have doubts that this info is correct. Why get the Tu-204 when they have A321 on order?
France 1789; Eastern Germany 1989; Tunisia 2011; Egypt 2011

This looks like a case of confusion with Red Wings, the Russian carrier that has ordered Tu-204s

Sounds logical but on the other hand the article states that the owners of Blue Wings want to start a Russian Airline called National Wings and given the high import duties for Western aircraft the TU 204 can be the prefered aircraft for this.

Thanks for that ever-so-useful response - total waste of space in this thread. I think most of us understood what he meant........

Nope, they have 8(!!) ex jetblue A320 in operation and yes, still jetblue interiors incl. PTVs. Unfortunately, they haven't the licence to use the PTVs yet...
