IR took delivery of first brand new Airbus Aircraft. Wondering how many brand new Aircraft they will be getting in current month. Any idea? AFAIK no further deliveries are planned this month. The first ATR should join the fleet in February, followed by an A330 in March. 2 A332's in one month or less.
