Did The New AC Livery Just Go Past My Window?

Fri Oct 15, 2004 9:35 pm

Rhaa !

An unidentified A340-300 has just gone past my window, on finals for runway 28 at Dublin.
The whole fuselage was red and white, a bit like LTU (except it was definitely a 343).
Can anyone confirm ? or tell me what it actually is ?
Can't go to the airport as I am stuck up on a project  Sad

I dont think it was AC... it's supposed to be 767 with the new livery, not an A340... i think...

`Def. a 343'.
Not a 332 then?
LTU is doing DUB-South Africa soon-ish I believe.

It's an LTU A330, arrived from Dusseldorf and off to Cape Town. It'll be back tomorrow.

Thanks Vatry.
I could've sworn I had seen 4 engines. You near the airport too ?

LTU landed at around 1:45 and is due out at just before 3pm. The Virgin A340's and 744's come in to FLS on a regular basis, so I'd assume UTA is familiar with these.

You'll need to get up on a Friday as the return legs were originally due around 8pm on Saturday evening, but I'll be suprised if it's not later. BTW it operates every week until the start of April, so you've plenty of chances.

Sorry to step a bit off topic, but since when does LTU fly DUB-CPT and will they operate this flight on a regular basis?  Confused

Since today, and every Friday from now until 9th April. It's been run by an Irish travel agent and replaces the AV8Air/Iceair 763 we had last winter.

Just to add - it isn't Oct 19th and you're not in Toronto or Montreal and it wasn't a 767 - so, no

We're confused with this word "AC"...

AC stands for Air Canada
AC means aircraft
