First A320Neo for SAS. See: https://flic.kr/p/LGL6JL What kind of a hangar is that?

Given that the -900 frames built in the same period are not yet ready for flight then perhaps it is hardly surprising that the test -1000 frame isn't yet ready. Over optimistic schedules?

So what is the A340-600 doing there? I thought that they stored it, since their current test fleet is rather large (A320, A332, A350 and A380). Engine testing, perhaps?

I believe September was the delivery target for the first CS300. My understanding is November, but that might be airbaltic's EIS, in which case delivery would be sooner. Lets put it in the middle...

Can't find the post in the thread so far, but the latest update on the Airbus order spreadsheet shows QR A320neo orders at 33 from 34, making one cancelation, possibly MSN6772 which was supposed to be their first.
Also the Interjet order shows -5, down to 35 from 40
Speaking of which, those fantastic folk (sorry, I can't recall the name(s) ) who kept spreadsheets of the A350-900's test flights, will they be doing the same for the -1000? From memory I think it may have been Starbucks? (Please correct me if I am wrong). Would be interesting to see how the two te...Jump to post
