BRU 31/08/2006

Post by MD-11forever » 30 Aug 2006, 16:41

I just noticed on the arrivals that on Thursday 31/08 there will be a non-stop flight from Addis Ababa to EBBR:

31/08 06:05 Addis Ababa ET 704

This flight will be executed by a A330! Also, on the website of Ethopian, this flight is denoted to be flown with A330.

Ethiopian Airlines
ET 704 Bole (ADD), Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 23:20
Brussels National (BRU), Brussels, Belgium 06:05+1 day(s)
Non-stop 330 7:45 Wednesday

However, as far as I know, Ethiopian doesn't have any A330s, only 767-300s. From which company is this A330?

They wet-leased an A330 of Star Airlines for six months. They have this aircraft in the fleet since 12 June. Normally they had to lease two ex-Malasian B747 but that didn't go.

Ok, I didn't know they leased an A330. Thanks for the quick reply Atlantis!

This means also that the flights are doing well.

So because an intermediate stop is exceptionally cancelled, and because bigger equipment is used (due to aircraft shortage), you conclude that a flight is doing well?

It is possible of course, but I'd rather put a charter aircraft with a high density configuration on a low yield route with a lot of volume, and use my B763 aircraft (with the standard ET interior) on the high yield destinations where a charter aircraft would result in the loss of high yielding customers.

Not that I want to contradict you, it is just another vision...

I meant generally that the flights are doing well. I'm not speaking about this ones event for tomorrow.

In the Ethiopian plans there is no room to fly direct to BRU. All the flights are still going via CDG.

Maybe that post was a little bit confusing. Hopes this makes it clear.

Hi,

I saw TC-APD in Pegasus c/s without titles flying for Air Algerie @ Orly last week.
Might be the same one.

Best regards,
OO-JFP

The AH B734 was not the only "special" B734 today, does anybody know which B734 operated TU8431, which left to MIR at 13:55?

I'd also appreciate the reg of LH4607 to MUC...

Thanks
