Morning all.

Sorry for what may seem like a mundane question, but does anyone know the story behind what looks like an engine change on the Iberia 757 at Linate (Milan) yesterday. I didnít think Iberia flew 75ís into Linate. Poor little thing looked decidedly cold and rather sorry for itself in the Milanese morning frost...

Thanks in advance, W.

PS: Iberia have got are Rollers in donít they?

Morning,

It is quite common for Iberia to change there regular equipment (A320) over the weekends for something else, either to boost capacity or to have the bussen free for maintenance. Nothing strange about that.

As for the engine change...guess they just had one of those bad days there. Given the fact that Madrid has been well below zero the past few weeks, that should not take them by surprise in Linate. But yeah, the 75īs are getting old...should be retired from the Iberia fleet in a couple of years.

Adios
