Todays ZB068 LTN-GIB, departed eventually (nearly 4 hours late - nearly an hour after due to arrive), and with an equipment swap to a A321, which can't land at GIB due to weight issues (due to design of gear), so it will be operating out of Malaga.

Add two to three hours on top, thouse passengers are going to be about 7 hours late at least.

I think the Gib passengers were being bussed to Malaga in anticipation of the flight being operated from there but still not good - but these things happen as we all know in aviation.

The 321 can be taken into GIB, I've done it occasionally in the past, but there are restrictions.

Yeah I've also seen 321 parking points on the stands. I believe only a certain number of passengers can go on it. Although since I've been flying to GIB, I've not seen the A321 come into GIB anywhere.

What is happening to the A330's are they going to be parted out, or are they going elsewhere.

They are a similar age to the 3 original AIH models that TCX are using.

Goldeneye re the A330s;

Not sure what the plan was when they were withdrawn ..being returned to lessors ??

However 1 is still in the MAEL hangar at BHX the other parked up part tail fin missing.

Seems no rush to complete the work ,but assume they are not going for scrapping amount of timebeing worked on in the hangar ?

Not sure where the rumour came from, but understood the lessors were really owned by the Mantegazza Family and were used to siphon off profits via off-shore companies. It was surprising that the aircraft were wfu and that there was seemingly no plan in place to lease or sell them to another airline.

Used to owned by the family but sold off a few years back.
The one in the hangar is on a 6 year check and the rumour is the lease company may have someone lined up for it.
Both due to be returned by the end of September.
