Despite the fact that their newest Boeing 737-800 is only a couple of months old, CHINA AIRLINES already have any eye on their next narrow-body order. There’s still a long way to go, but the A320neo is being looked upon favorably. I couldn’t possibly comment if that has anything to do with the fact that the airline is currently pressing for rights to fly to France.
B747-45E B-16410 (1140/29061) ferried to San Bernardino as [EVA1012] for parting-out on 24-APR.
FAR EASTERN AIR TRANSPORT
The airline are in the process of acquiring 4 ATR 72-600s from NORDIC AVIATION. Although 2 have been already painted in FAR EASTERN colours (OY-JZA/msn 1110) and OY-JZG/msn 1171) I’m told that it may be some time before they arrive on the island. Apparently a number of regulatory processes have yet to be completed.
