Bits and Pieces: 5-Jul-2017

Posted by on July 5, 2017

FAR EASTERN AIR TRANSPORT
ATR 72-212A(600) B-28068 (which to correct an earlier error is msn 1171) is currently AOG (presumably in Paphos) due to some avionics software issues. These have been fixed but there is still some paperwork to be completed. Current ETA in Taipei is Saturday or Sunday.

TRANSASIA AIRWAYS
I’d previously reported that the 2 remaining A321s and A330s had been sold. That deal fell through, and another deal to send the A330s to South America was struck but that is also floundering. Yet another deal is now being negotiated with someone else. An announcement is expected later this month. Yeah right. By the way, I’m keeping this deliberately vague as none of this supposed to be public knowledge.

UNITED AIRLINES
Last Boeing 747-400 service from SFO will be on 31-Jul (arriving here on the evening of 1-Aug). From 1-Aug, the SFO-TPE-SFO service will be operated by Boeing 777-300ERs. Oh dear, some more 777s for the log!
