FLEET UPDATE: Aerolineas Argentinas A330 & A340 Pending Deliveries

* AIRBUS A330's:

Delivery of the four A330's that Aerolineas Argentinas was supposed to receive in July and August has been postponed with the first two now due to arrive in August and September.  They are:

A330-223 (c/n 290) to be re-registered LV-FNI, presently parked at Kuala Lumpur (KUL) and due to arrive at Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) approx. 13Aug13.

A330-223 (c/n 300) to be re-registered LV-FNJ, also presently parked at KUL and due to arrive at EZE approx. 15Sep13.

The blog "Aviones en Ezeiza" reports that these aircraft will almost certainly be used first on the Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) to Bogota (BOG), Caracas (CCS) and Cancun (CUN) routes until they become ETOPS-certified when they will be able to fly transoceanic routes.  

* AIRBUS A340's:

Two A340's are expected to be delivered in the next couple of months too replacing some of the ones that have been departing the Aerolineas fleet:

A340-313X (c/n 193) to be re-registered LV-FPV is currently parked at Brussels (BRU) and is expected to be delivered sometime after 15Sep13. It has already been painted in Skyteam colors featuring a silver fuselage. 

A340-313X (c/n 170) to be re-registered LV-FPU is parked at Sao Paulo Guarulhos (GRU) and is scheduled to be delivered after 01Oct13.
