Re: Boeing 787 Production/Delivery Thread - 2019

Apparently Somon Air has delayed 787 introduction until 2022, now seeking (or has gotten??) a 767-300ER. This is the story back in June 2018. https://www.forbes.com/sites/martinrivers/2018/06/26/somon-air-delays-dreamliner-in-favor-of-767-confirms-e2-plan/#307eb7d536e5 P4-BDL is also not listed in ...

According to skyliner, LN 315 P4-BDL was ferried from AMS to SBD. Does anyone have more infos about that airframe? It was first rumored to have been picked up by Somon Air but that has gone quiet. Skyliner lists it as registered to Globaljet Luxembourg. It had been in AMS for about 1 1/2 years now....
