We already discussed in some prior topics the not very reliable operation of Sabena's 2 MD11's OO-CTC and OO-CTS.
The airline is currently again involved in a lot of problems with one of their 2 aircraft, this time OO-CTC.
The aircraft hasn't been operating for a couple of days now, and has been replaced by Citybirds OO-CTB a couple of times, and some flights, including yesterday's JNB run have been cancelled.
Today's sollution is, however, without any predicessor... OO-CTS will operate its normal JNB route, whereas the flight that was due to be operated by OO-CTC, namely
will now be operated by OO-SNE, an A320 by all means!!!
I don't know whether the poor a/c will be able to make the 3000 something miles to and from CKY without technical stop, for sure given the weather conditions at take of in Africa.
