We know the search facility is pants here, so.....
It looks like there are just 6 MU A-300s left flying; all B-:
& it looks like their days could be numbered.
Does anyone have any references as to when these burdz will eventually leave service?
I named myself after the last craft I boarded before joining A-net; B-2319.
And, on my return home, I took close sister, B-2318, where there was a strong smell of Jet-A in the cabin, just before we took off from SZX to SHA.....how common is that these days?
I've been in no hurry to take any modern plane e.g. 380 or 787; the former, once, by accident DXB to PVG. They'll be around for decades.
However, as the average costs of SHA to SZX, then overland to Hong Kong, have been 40% of SHA to HKG, and 60% PVG to HKG, and I live to the east of Shanghai, I've deliberately taken the cross-border route and enjoyed my time on the first widebody twin with MU.
Personal note: My father, ex serviceman (due to his age) initially hated flying, probably due to his National Service days. The introduction of 'The Airbus' between EDI and ORY (I guess CDG not open?) in the mid 1970s somewhat cured him of this 'disease'. So, the A-300 has a bit of a history with my family......NO need to move this to 'Polls & Prefs', though!
Long live the A-300; and I know Thai could be a good bet for me in the region in the coming years.....
