Broken UA A320 In SXM?

Wed Jun 20, 2012 7:51 pm

Been in SXM for three days now and have been to Maho to see AF and KL take off but what is up with the UA that arrived on Monday? It was at gate for a turn then was pulled off to the side where it has been eversince. I am assuming major mx for it to still be here as it has now been three days. Something minor would have been fixed by now, anyone know?

Well, Flight Aware shows a ferry 320 on 6/20 MCO-SXM and no flight numbers with ferry range numbers departing. Sounds like the troubled aircraft is still there from the OP post.

Yes. It is an A320 and I can confirm it is still here. I am thinking engine at this point to have it stay here this long. I leave for MIA tomorrow and will try to swing by the west end to see if I can get tail number. The crazy part is I was Maho all day taking pics and missed this one as I was at Sunset ordering a drink lol

From what I can tell there was a lav leak requiring parts which will be arriving today, A/C requires extensive cleanup and should be departing tomorrow.

Probably an irrelevant question, but which colorscheme is she painted in?

In that case it should be this aircraft:

Bet this is the type problem that makes maintenance and cabin service folks say "Oh Sh*t". Sorry, I couldn't resist that one.  spin

Yep. That is she. I Left yesterday late and got to finally grab the reg. She is in UA globe paint. But what a great site to wake up to every morning from my hotel balcony over Simpson Bay.
