Brand new A333 for EI already stored? Please tell me this is temporary.
It's in short term storage since it's arrival in DUB, hasn't flown revenue yet, due to come online in March, winter schedule didn't require it.
I'm pretty sure that's why the 2 TS 332s are there. They're parked during the winter and brought back into service for the peak transatlantic season.
IINM, the reason for that is because the lease on those frames with AerCap is a power-by-the hour lease, and so it's cheaper to just pay the parking fees than the leasing fees in the winter.
