Is this likely to be accurate - are those A340 500 MSN886 and MSN894 aircraft finally going to be delivered to Air Zimbabwe this month by Airbus?

Are there still EU/US sanctions in place against Zimbabwe?

Yes it's was in 2005-2006 when they taken delivery of the first MA-60. But, the airline has huge debt and the strike started about one month ago. The best thing, i think it's to re create a new airline. Any news about Fly540 Zimbabwe ??

A source that spoke on condition that he is not named said they had been chucked out of a hotel after the national airline failed to pay their accommodation fee....

IIRC, They used to have a BAE 146, (parked in 2006). Perhaps they should bring it back.
