Fate of last four Xiamen 752's

Wed Dec 05, 2018 7:43 pm

I see that Xiamen just retired their last four 752's.

Does anyone know where they may end up? Not a good model for pax hauling anymore, so freighters?

Since FedEx decided its 757 fleet was complete it seems 752 cargo conversions have slowed down. But these are late-build frames between 14 and 17 years of age, so if any are still being converted it will be these. I doubt there is much market for them as passenger frames, although perhaps at the right very low price Icelandair or Delta might have interest.

Two of them were the last 757's built. Surely they have a value for further use...

The last 757 built, LN 1050, is an ex-Shanghai aircraft now operating with Delta as ship 6823.

I'd think perhaps the Russian charter airlines would be interested.

If not SF Express as freighters, then I’d expect Icelandair to buy them. Russian carriers are more likely to get planes from a third party lessor or their country’s government.

The last two 757's built, LN 1049/1050, were both for FM and are both with DL now.

MF had the 3rd/4th to last 757's built, LN 1047/1048.

I assume we're talking about LN 1047 and LN 1048. These are Rolls Royce powered aircraft. Perfect fit for Iceland Air if they are in the market for additional 757 aircraft.

These are Rolls Royce powered frames. So negative on Delta, but Icelandair, yes.

Are the ex-Shanghai birds rotating through the system or based in NRT? I have seen N823DX (ln 1050) in ATL doing domestic turns during 2018. I was a little shocked so I stopped and took some pics. Are they still in-house considered 75G or did they get the 75P upgrade?

Again, everything is about the right price. There have been rumors of RR 757s going to Delta before and I wouldn't be shocked if it happened. But the engines do mean the birds might be worth more to Icelandair.

There are no more 757's based at NRT.

It is all about the fish. And RR engines. ;)

They could replace TF-FIC/W, which are door oddballs (no overwing exits). Those two could be converted to freighters.

LN 1047 and LN 1048 are also the 8 door option with no overwing exits.

N819DX-N823DX are all based out of ATL/JFK now.
To me, it will always be:
- Bombardier CSeries
- Airbus A321neoLR and A321neoXLR
- EMBRACER ERJ-170, ERJ-175, ERJ-190, and ERJ-195
- MITSUBUSHI MRJ

Anti narrowbody-long range-twinjet gang. Long live the A380 and 747!

Any rumors of Rolls 757s going to Delta (that I have heard) would be turned over to DMS for part out.

basically zero chance of RB211s hitting the active fleet at this point.

Delta doesn't have aircraft bases. Just pilot bases. And a quick search shows that those aircraft move throughout the system.
