Re: Swiss Aviation Thread - 2019

btw. HB-JND (LX/77W) seems to be grounded still. really curious to know what is wrong. DALCE, really no chance to give us a clue? :) They found corrosion in the wastewater tank that was apparently caused by a seal that was not completely tight. The repair is supposed to be finished soon and the air...

Re: Airbus A220 (CSeries) Delivery/Production Thread - 2019

Last rumor I heard was that they will be delivered in Q2 19, which would mean that they would have to start with the test flight within a month. But then again there were so many other rumored delivery dates that all turned out to be wrong so I don't really believe any of them anymore.

One is the Swiss CS300 mentioned above that has been removed from the Canad...

Re: Airbus A220 (CSeries) Delivery/Production Thread - 2019

It's MSN 55046 for Swiss that is included in the list but actually is still in YMX. Probably it has officially been handed over to LX and is now registered in Switzerland but simply has not made the flight to Zurich yet.

Re: Airbus A220 (CSeries) Production/Delivery Thread 2018

Is Swiss still going to take their final 2 A220-100s? They have never officially been cancelled or converted. Swiss did request to prioritize the CS300s deliveries and now that the last LX CS300 will be delivered in the next days, I guess we should see the two remaining CS100s soon. Also Sylvain Fa...

Re: Swiss aviation thread - 2018

Btw, does anybody know when exactly the first A320NEOs will join the Swiss fleet? I can't find further information on any of the known Swiss fleet overview sites. There has not been much information about that. But I saw fall 2019 mentioned once or twice (e.g. https://www.aerotelegraph.com/a340-von...

Re: Airbus A220 (CSeries) Production/Delivery Thread 2018

So, only 2 deliveries for October? A 100 for Delta and a 300 for airBaltic. Can anyone confirm? Yes that's right. After maintaining a constant rate of 3 deliveries per month since May, they have dropped two 2 now. I assume that MSN 55044 (Swiss CS300) was also supposed to be delivered in October. I...

2x CS100 5x CS300 17x 320NEO 8x 321NEO 1x 333 (doubtful if it gets delivered, guess not) 2x 77W I don't think that they still have an A333 order. They ordered a total of 16 A333 all of which were delivered ([email protected], [email protected]). This is also what the Airbus order spreadsheet shows. If they once had an addi...

Re: Swiss aviation thread - 2018

Swiss has firmed up their 10 purchase options for A32x NEOs. This will bring their firm order to 17 A320neo and 8 A321neo. The original order of 10 A320neo and 5 A321neo will be delivered between 2019 and 2022 while the now firmed up options will be delivered between 2023 and 2024. See Swiss's press...

Re: Airbus A220 (CSeries) Production/Delivery Thread 2018

According to Sylvain Faust , who is typically very well informed about CSeries production, Airbus will probably scrap MSN 50007, 50008 and 50009 that have been parked without engines for over 2 years. These are some of the earliest production aircraft after the flight test fleet, but apparently it ...

Will the leases of all the A332 expire at the same time? I just took a look at the delivery dates: The ex Swissair planes were delivered between 1998 and 2001. Does that mean that the newest will stay 3 years longer than the oldest or not? With the two ex Sabena planes I guess they can do whatever t...
