Ukraine internation airlines - NTU 772

Mon Jul 15, 2019 8:17 pm

I was looking at planespotter.net and I found a 772(ER) bound for UIA in full livery, but that was never taken delivery of. Does anyone know why this plane (reg. UR-GOD) wasn't delivered? Someone lost a good amount of money on the paint and testing of the planes (most likely Aercap).

I'll give you a link to a summary article, and Google translate is your friend from that point on:

The gist of it is simple -- this particular frame was NTU, as condition was discovered to be inferior to that declared. As discovery happened when the plane was fairly deep into delivery pipeline, there is indeed a cost to be allocated. Instead of just scrapping the frame, the lessor decided to store it, while responsibility and bills are allocated.
Before the lessor decided to balk and pursue these bills, Ukraine International was fairly confident that the aircraft was destined to a scrapyard, so bad the condition presumably was:
