Thats very interesting. I presume it would be a delivery flight.

Isn't it funny how airlines use KHI as a stopover route and not operate there ?

Correct, this would most certainly be a delivery flight.

According to the Airliner Census, MSN 1511 an OZ A321-131 reg. HL-7703, was expected to be delivered June 2001.

They have 12 on order. Some are leased from ILFC.

I know the A321 does not have the greatest range, remember we are talking about a -100 variant. However, this being a ferry flight my guess at the routing would be:

Hamburg-DXB-KHI-ICN ???

Very interesting...... nice job you have airmale...you get to see everything that happens at KHI. As for the routing for the delivery flight i doubt if the plane stopped at DXB if it stopped at KHI as well....... DXB is only 1h 25min flying time from KHI. So i suppose .... Hamburg-KHI-ICN
