Wonder if it will be A330-ER (the latest model w longer range)
|Quoting Hamlet69 (Reply 3):|
The release seems to indicate these are used frames, not new. So the question is - who is disposing of 6 A333's?
|Quoting PM (Reply 4):|
Of ILFC's customers, I think only Cathay have that many RR A333s. I find it hard to believe that this is the source.
|Quoting raggi (Reply 9):|
Don't forget that their new 332s coming along will be GE, so I don't think any used or new 333 would absolutely positively have to be Rollers.
These aircraft are the same model as those that AirAsia X purchased directly from Airbus, with Rolls Royce Trent 700 engines and a Maximum Take-Off Weight of 233 tons.

Well, Dragonair already started to dispose of some of their RR-powered A330s. B-HYE left Dragonair for Air Transat in 2009, B-HYD followed in 2011 and B-HYF is now also in TS colors. If Airfleets is correct, many of them are ILFC frames.
