A sight that no longer can be seen anywhere around the world. Etihad's extra long fuel guzzling Airbus which was retired by them in 2017 and stored as 2-FIXP and currently operated by Maleth Aero as 9H-PGS since May 2019. The aircraft was in service for Etihad for only 8 years and then discontinued due to fuel efficiency issues and higher maintenance costs. Etihad Airways's RR Trent556 powered A340-600, A6-EHK taxiing on November at Mumbai International. Photo taken during Air Canada B789 Inaugural event.

Thank you very much, I'm glad you liked it and indeed it's a marvellous plane but sadly we won't be able to spot her anymore in these colours.

Beautiful (but unfortunately inefficient) airplane...

Yeah, it's beautiful and yes, it being highly inefficient is the main reason EY discontinued them from their operations, maintenance cost being a very big factor.
