TN A340 Landing In Sydney Today Around 1pm - Why?

Wed Dec 05, 2012 3:31 am

I saw a TN A340 landing at SYD today around 1pm. Does anyone know if this was for a charter / some sort of dry or wet lease given that TN does not fly here anymore?

Leased to Air Calin - their A332 is undergoing maintenance.
It's all about the destination AND the journey.

Thanks for the answer NZ107 - interesting to hear they're leasing their planes out. On a side note, I really enjoyed flying TN a few years ago SYD-PPT-JFK and return and hope they can turn around their fortunes. Having to lease their aircraft out is no doubt linked to their current problems.

There are so desperate to get rid of them, they'd almost give then away.
