Finnair A340 At SFO

Sun Apr 08, 2012 3:45 am

Today I saw a Finnair A340 land at SFO. Any clues why? Thanks.

Sorry but all 7 AY A340's are now :

OH-LQA PVG-HEL
OH-LQB KIX-HEL
OH-LQC HEL-SIN
OH-LQD NGO-HEL
OH-LQE @HEL
OH-LQF @HEL
OH-LQG DEL-HEL

So it was not Finnair A340 at SFO. What was it?

I worked all day at SFO and didn't see a Finnair A340 today. Where exactly did you see it and what time?

You sure it wasn't AF or Swiss?

AF switched back to the 744 last week. Though they will be operating a 2nd flight 4 weekly with the A340, however I don't think that has started yet.

The only A340s at SFO today are VS and Swiss, no?

VS is flying a 744. Summer schedule. Only A340 is Swiss and the LH A346

VS increased their summer flying to SFO by a three times weekly A340 flight in addition to the daily 744.

AF will be flying a second daily 772 in the near future.

Only A340 operators at SFO this summer are LX , LH and VS.

Getting back to the original question, I scoured various sites and I did not see AY anywhere listed at SFO.

When is the 3 weekly VS starting? I haven't seen it yet. I did know AF was starting additional service, but didn't know it was the 772.

And LH's A346 to MUC, no?

A343 or 346? I can't seem to squeeze the info out of VS's site.
