Does anyone have insights about the 4 China Airlines (CI) late-build pax 747-400s, currently stored in TPE?
There have been rumors of retirement by the end of July but it would seem nothing official/concrete actually happened?
3 weeks ago further up the thread I posted:
Heres the flight activity for CIs 4 744s from flightradar24
B18210- 6/15, 5/15, 4/23, last revenue flight 2/3
B18211 - 7/26, last rev 3/8
B18212 - 7/27, 6/28, 6/27, 6/27, 6/16, 5/31, 5/31,5/2 last rev 2/8
B18215 - 6/24, 5/27, 4/23, 3/19, last rev 3/15
B18215 has flown again 8/18, others no new activity.
I think they are going to be gone, makes no sense to keep them when they have 77Ws and A359s with spare capacity and better hard product especially since they no longer sell F fares and have been putting J customers in the F seats of the 744s for some time already
In the cargo carrier thread I posted 3 744Fs they planned back in Feb to sell to make way for the new 777Fs are going to stay on.
