Do you know which airline is due to get MSN275 ?Geoff

My information shows it is a QR frame (359).


This would be the 35th -900 for QR, with the recent conversion of 5 -900s to -1000s there are only 34 on order. Maybe MSN 275 will not be built after all ?

Just looking at the MSN assignments it looks like 4 or 5 for VS and 3 or 4 for BA.

MSN 216 (SQ#25/26) new engine run - customer engines
MSN 225 (CX#27) RTO - first flight scheduled for Monday
MSN 240 (CA#5) out on another test flight #AIB05HK
MSN 243 (PR#4) customer acceptance engine run
MSN 246 (HX#6) RTO - first flight scheduled for Monday

Additionally, as per Airbus' September O&D report, MSN 226 (HU#2) was contractually delivered to LATAM on 9/28 and surprisingly enough was delivery #200. As of 9/30, operatorship had yet to be transferred to Hainan Airlines. We ended September with 61 for 2018, including 10 for the month of September. As of this stage last year, we sat at 50 deliveries.

Yes they all have customer specific reasons for still being at TLS , although 52 and 55 are owned by AerCap so technically ‘delivered’.

The last MSN to roll out was MSN 276 and I calculate that MSN 285 was the last to roll in but take it with a plus or minus as some are out of sync.
