Started a AUK-TPE-AUK B787-9 service on 1-Nov. First service was operated by ZK-NZD. I’ve listed the various aircraft as 1st visits, but I believe ANZ have operated here in the past. Not sure if that was with the Dreamliners though.

Have started using B747-400s on some services here (replacing A330-300s).

Not really news but it’s my blog, so deal with it. CEBU’s A321 have been regular visitors in the early hours on [CEB310/311] for some time now but towards the end of the month, they started making a welcome appearance on the mid-morning service [CEB312/313].

Have sold B747-45EF B-16482 to ATLAS AIR as N486MC. It left Taipei (TPE) on 7-Nov.

Had announced that with the start of the winter season they would be using A380 equipment on the late morning arrival from Seoul (ICN)[KAL691/692] but in reality there has been a mix of A388s and B748s.

Local press reports have stated that RBA will be operating a BWN-TPE-BWN service soon.

I read a report that TLM were going to introduce their B737-8 Max on some of their services into here from Bangkok (DMK) in November. Nothing to report this month, but getting ahead of myself, HS-LSI a -9 MAX turned up on 2-Dec.

Interesting visitors.
In addition to the airliners, there were a couple of others worthy of comment. Gulfstream G550 N73M was in and out on 4-Nov. AERONEXUS’s Boeing 767-300 ZS-NEX was here for a few days from 15-Nov. Hawker 800 HS-CPH was in and out on 29-Nov.

As far as I know, all 3 freighter conversions (N538LA, N665AC, and N668AC) are still here, but N538LA was outside doing engine runs during the latter part of the month and may well have escaped.
