I can assure you that AF delivered to Cargo B all the doc needed. I saw all the papers paletised at ORY (~8 cubic meters of papers).

The last 2 B747 COI (F-GITC and F-GITD - based at CDG) will be replaced by 2 B77W. These B747 are going to be first AF B747-400 to be withdrawn from service, in march 2009. I assume that the 2 B77W will be registered F-GSQQ and F-GSQW, leaving room for possible expansion (F-GSQZ). I would like to c...

It's quite usual pratices in air transport industry. The aim is to avoid bad publicity to the airlines (the average people minds that accidented aircraft means bad maintened aircraft).

Yes, AF uses COI* 77Ws for summer season (472 seats) to Nice and Corsica. The 77W replaces advantageously B747-400s formerly used on these routes.

The seven COI 77W regs are :
F-GSQN
F-GSQO
F-GSQP
F-GSQR
F-GSQS
F-GSQT
F-GSQX

Hi, F-GSQQ and F-GSQW don't exist effectively, as well as F-GSQZ. As Emirates correctely stated, the new 777 regs are F-GZN*. The last 2 B747 COI (F-GITC and F-GITD - based at CDG) will be replaced by 2 B77W. These B747 are going to be first AF B747-400 to be withdrawn from service, in march 2009. I...

Why is this question so very important?
I meant, if Portugal, Spain, France, Italy and Greece are about to make a joint order, are these very planes to be "westenised" or not ?

Un monstre s’en va...

C’est avec une certaine émotion que je vois partir l’un des monstres sacrés de la flotte d’Air France. Avec ses vingt-six années, le F-GCBD -car c’est de lui dont il s’agit- reste pour quelques temps encore le vénérable doyen de la flotte d’Air France. Sorti des usines Boeing à Everett le 3 mars 198...

Seems quite logical to me. This is the easy way to go, and the less expensive also. Transavia and KLM stick on B737NG, KLME&M beeing on the B737 MRO market as well, while AFI focuses on A320 MRO market. This way, they are not competing with each other. But it doesn't mean that the future narrowbodie...
