It quite often goes for 'day trips' across to T1/T2 but never seems to have any work performed on it anymore. At one stage they were attempting to repair the gear in PER but it didn't eventuate.

Pretty much any country youíd like to name itís impossible to go for a walk and not see a perfectly serviceable A330 sitting in the dirt . Why repair a broken one ?

What’s going on over at VA? Many stand downs with the reduced schedule?

Surprisingly no, even for Sydney base. MoU extension being discussed with no lower than 75% pay for the next few months.

It sparked my curiosity. However the captain was adamant it was going back to the lessor very soon as itís been getting some work done over at T1/T2 on the odd day here and there
Was going for another 'walk' this morning...
