I can't imagine that it will be picked up in the current market. FedEx is adding 767's & 777's and will probably not buy any 2nd hand MD11F's for flying operations anymore.
They could pick it up as spares frame, but that is scrapping for me.

TLV is double daily 333, so that makes 14/14 for the A330's.Jump to post

Will these new flights fully tap out their long-haul fleet? It seems pretty impressive how they're able to manage such a large long-haul network with a relatively small fleet. It's curious why their South American network is so small. Long flights, high costs and relatively low yields. So better to...Jump to post
I’m flying ZRH-NRT with Swiss next year, in March. Just got an email saying that they changed it from a a340 to the B773. Anyone know if this is a temporary change or one that’s more long-term? NRT will indeed be upgauged from A343 to 77W ops from March onwards. With the new destinations coming up,...Jump to post
LX also gave priority to the CS300 due to the ending of some 319 & 320 lease contracts.
The Avro's could soldier on more easily. Seatwise it made more sense for the network with the limited engines available.
When it’s time to replace the remaining A330s, it’s going to be probably another mix of 787-9s and -10s. The A321XLR would make a good A330-200 replacement on thinner routes. The 321XLR is not really a cargo hauler is it.....Very unlikely and beside lack of cargo potential an oddball in the fleet. ...Jump to post
According to this article; https://luchtvaartnieuws.nl/nieuws/categorie/2/airlines/klm-moet-lang-wachten-op-laatste-boeing-737-800 The holes in the part of the fuselage where the wing would be attached were drilled wrong. Due to this the wings could not be fitted. So, no wrong wings or something, b...Jump to post
Hi all, I'm looking for some registrations of aircraft which operated flights I took in 2003. There are some beautiful sites to look up this info for UK & USA but for international flights it seems to be a different story altogether. I hope somebody can help me out for these 2 flights : SQ023/16...Jump to post
Belly cargo is un(der)developped in the USA. IN both Europe & Asia cargo is a very important contribution to airline results. The only US carrier (other than the freighterboys) who had an eye for cargo was goold old NorthWest. All the others never looked at it seriously, and it was never really ...Jump to post
I find it very hard at all that a company like Boeing would make such a huge error, but since there are some rumours I thought it is worth a seperate topic.
Now hopefully is willing and able to shine a light on it.
is there a structural difference between P-8 and 737-800 wings?Jump to post
In the 737NG production/delivery thread I see some odd comment regarding the last NG to be delivered to KLM. l/n 7542 seems to have serious issues during final assembly and there are even comments made that the l/n has changed internally at Boeing and even that a wrong set of wings was attached.... ...Jump to post
Are there any MSN's allocated for the LX 320/321NEO's ? Can't seem to find anything anywhere yet.Jump to post
I can't believe that AC has the 77W on the ZRH-YYZ route now! Not long ago it was a 789 and before that it was a 763... Also, how is LX planning on accounting for this new route growth? I thought the whole point of introducing the 77W was to replace some a343s with the added perk of a capacity boos...Jump to post
indeed, finally ;) There is a lot to come for LX. The first NEO's by Q4 New destinations. I would say within 2 months in order to be able to market them properly. nevertheless I'm also looking forward to see where the 787/350's on order for LH group will go. I wouldn't be surprised if LX will only g...Jump to post
HB-JBI, the 9th CS100 will depart YMX this morning and arrive in ZRH tomorrow. Then only 1 frame to be delivered to LX to conclude their orderbook.Jump to post
Nice to see WK operating their widebodies on shorter segments.
ATH on the 77W is the same as last year, but a strong sign for business into/from Greece!
Sorry, I'm not going to take risks regarding that. Normally -JND should be back online towards the weekend / during the weekend.

Hey guys, With the Paris Air Show kicking in, we have already seen MEA and Cebu ordering the A321XLR. Could such an aircraft sign the return of Swiss long haul flight from GVA? I doubt that GVA will ever see LX long-haul again. It eats up the market of ZRH. However, I‘ve always seen the A321LR and ...Jump to post
Can you please start a seperate thread for the techincal needs, do's & don'ts regarding the XLR. Then we can keep this for news & orders.
Reminds be of Balair somehow. Don't like it too much thoughJump to post
The 2 new frames will give space to expand for LX. 1 new TATL & 1 Asian destination are more or less confirmed. I expect the new destinations to be opened with A330/A340 and upgauging of current A330/340 routes to 77W. Personally I see ZRH-NRT to become 77W and that A340-slack being used for ope...Jump to post
I was not personally affected but I think those who were affected have the right to know that AA had the possibility to make money by selling a spare part AND help people, while they chose to lose money and hinder people.

Nope, there are 737's in full EW livery flying around, so your statement is not correct.Jump to post
LH group is clearly a working in progress airline group. Clearly they are streamlining their own brands as well as the brands they bought overtime. On this forum the general consensus seems to be that airline groups can change things overnight. One forgets that due to the demise of Air Berlin many t...Jump to post
It is quite common that 319 operators are replanning their fleets. Many of them go for 320(NEO) as replacement, but LX also has the CS300 which is of similar size as the 319. The 319 is leaving frontservice almost everywhere, not only at LX. They are already around longer than expected due to the de...Jump to post
You can say it's childish, but in fact it is simply plain stupid to see what happens in the Netherlands in the current situation. I give you 1 example which for me is totally covering this issue. Emirates could not obtain more slots in AMS due to noise/polution regulations. Fine for me, now what hap...Jump to post
For me it is a pity that due to the treehugger-comunity network carriers like BA can't open such routes, whereas your average LCC seems to be able to do so. A carrier like BA will be added value for both the airport as well as the region. It will attract higher yielding passengers and could open up ...Jump to post

When they go A30X, you might expect to see a big refresh of the cockpit layout.
