I am wondering if CJ has been retrofitted because it didn't stay long in BOD (8 days). Previous planes stayed much longer in BOD for the retrofit. And since it returned to service, it is flying routes that were until now not served with the new cabins.

It's good news about the front lavatory. Everyone has been complaining about that.

F-GZCN is now back to service since 24/01. No new plane has been sent to BOD as I am posting this.

Forgot to confirm. You are right, it wasn't retrofitted.

CJ has not flown since 23/01. Last flight was CCS-CDG. No indication that it has been ferried to BOD.

Did you actually see it landing at CDG ? Because FR24 still shows no activity for this plane. I was wondering what was happening with it, because for previous planes, it took one month and for CJ we were over that.



And the good news is that CB has done today a 3 hrs test flight CGK-CGK. If everything was OK with this test flight, it means that it will return to CDG likely tomorrow.

I did yes. On FR24 the BOD-CDG flight shows up: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/f-gzcj

Thanks. Funny, the BOD-CDG flight doesnt show up neither on the app, nor on FR site. Anyway, CJ is back to service. It has flown round trip to DXB and now to LOS.

CB is now back in CDG from CGK (it returned on March 2). It is not yet returned to commercial service, but we can guess it will be for tomorrow.
CE is currently flying to CGK at the time I am typing this post.

I confirm CB is back on commercial service as it has scheduled to travel to CCS today.

Regarding CH, even though it is not shown on Flightradar24, this plane flew to BOD on the 29th of February ( Please see the plane flight track on flightaware ) and I saw personally (I live in France and went there for a day ) when landing on the airport.

Therefore the lastest update would be 12 airplanes finished. 2 airplanes on Maintenance (CE and CH )and 1 plane waiting (CD)

A bit OT, but F-GZCK has been damaged in PNR on April 11 while arriving from CDG to operate a repatriation flight. It could have been a real tragedy. Plane was at its parking spot, with no pax inside when a policeman (from the local GTA - gendarmerie des transports ariens) who was on the apron airside totally drunk shot the plane with his machine gun after a dispute with another security person. The plane shows several bullet impacts, including one in the main kerosene reservoir. Look at the video on the link below.

AF has sent a B777 to pick up the stranded pax.

FR24 shows right now the plane as "active" under AF382V to CDG but is still on the ground in PNR with a 0 speed and altitude. Could they already made a temporary fix allowing the plane to fly empty to CDG ? It seems rather quick to me when you imagine all the damages that could be caused by bullets. And I cannot imagine a worst place than Congo Brazzaville for fixing such problems.
