Not that much going on here really. There was one A350 delivery though! I’ve only reported the dates on which something happened.
I have to start with news of a couple of omissions from the last TPE report: ATALAS B747 N412MC arrived on 24-DEC and ANA pig JA55AN departed after maintenance on 29-DEC.
CHINA AIRLINES’ 4th A350-900 arrived this afternoon. It is of course B-18905 (msn 073) and has a hex of 899022 (which doesn’t seem to have been used before). And for those who are interested, I can assure you that she is just a capricious as her sisters. Never mind, just think of the overtime!
