There is no further news from XFW on either OYC or OYF.
OYD has completed her CAP.

All being well, she should be heading our way in the near future

A321-251NX VH-OYD has now completed its third flight, listed as another customer acceptance flight, of just 26 minutes from XFW, on 11/12/23 as D-AYAV and callsign AIB797C. The flight was probably to test a fix to a fault identified from the previous flight.

Delivery is scheduled for 15-17/12/23 - see post #158.

VH-OYC has conducted a taxi check and rejected take off at XFW on 11/12/23 as D-AYAT.

-OYD is #10 by my maths that means there’s a further 8 of these ‘Bintang buses’ on firm order before the 20 XLR’s start being delivered, is that correct?

With SIN, BKK and HKT + all DPS flights being upguaged to A321NEO’s the Perth base is going to need a few of these from 3Q 2024.
