Bits and Pieces: 1-Jul-2017

Posted by on July 1, 2017

Is it really the 1st July? Where does the time go…

Some of the following is a little old but I’ve included it for the sake of completeness. There’s also some new stuff though, so pay attention…

CHINA AIRLINES
A new service to London Gatwick using Airbus A350-900s will commence on 1-Dec-2107. Initially the service will be 4 times a week.

Airbus A340-300 B-18806 (msn 433) was ferried to Victorville on 14-Jun-17. This was the last A340 in service with the airline.
Boeing 737-800 B-18609 (line/msn 161/28407) was wfu on 1-Jun-17. Last service was [CAL178/CAL179] to Takamatsu on 31-May-17. The aircraft is currently parked at TPE.

EVA AIRLINES
A330-302 B-16639 (msn 1794) has been delivered, arriving in TPE on 29-Jun-17. It’s using a hex of 899085 which was previously assigned to MD-11 B-16109.
B777-35EER B-16738 (line/msn 1503/42105) has been delivered, arriving in TPE on 28-Jun-17. Its hex is 899081 which as far as I know is the first use.

FAR EASTERN AIR TRANSPORT
ATR 72-212A(600) B-28068 (msn 1171) has been delivered. According to Skyliner, it’s currently at Paphos on its way to Taiwan. It’s ex-OY-JZA and was previously with SAS and Jettime. And, no, I don’t know the hex yet. Interestingly, B-28068 appears to have been previously reserved by FAT for Boeing 737-86J (line/msn 4264/37772) which is now VT-SZM. This was one of two (Boeing 737-8SH (line/msn 5931/41345) which was reserved as B-28066 and is now VT-SZN was the other) that FAT tried to lease some time ago. I bet not many of you knew that!

Smiley,
Taoyuan, 1-Jul-2017.
