3 - A346 @ Basra, Iraq BSR?

Thu Mar 26, 2015 6:20 pm

Flew out to Dubai today and there are 3 all white A346 on the ground in Basra. From what I hear they have been there for a while.

Anyone know who they belong to?

They belong to Al Naser Airlines. Should be ex-Virgin (heh) airframes.

Do they actually operate them? They look like they are in long term storage almost.
