|Quoting DeltaB717 (Reply 25):|
WJ is getting GE-engined ex-QF aircraft, not RR. The MSNs quoted in the first post correspond to:
* 387 ex VH-OGI
* 396 ex VH-OGJ
* 402 ex VH-OGL
* 549 ex VH-OGN
* 710 ex VH-OGT
All of those are GE (the RR were all ZXA-ZXG). OGT was one of the international configured frames so spent a lot of its time on HNL runs (also Asian runs before they went to A330 or were ceased). The other 4 spent a lot of time on PER and DRW runs, CNS too, as opposed to the Golden Triangle. Not saying they don't have their fair share of cycles but they certainly weren't pushed as hard as the frames that DID spend most of their time on the triangle (such as the RR).
Interesting, the CP 763s were GE powered. Sure miss those in CP colors....
