China Eastern Downguages PVG-HNL Service
With Friday's flight, China Eastern Airlines will phase out their A340-313Xs on their twice-weekly PVG-HNL service. Beginning 18 May, China Eastern will utilize their A330-243s for CES571/572. In the interim (24 Apr - 15May), CES will substitute their A340-642s.
China Eastern's B-2384 (msn 182) is seen above, earlier this year, taxiing on Taxiway C for a Runway 26L departure to PVG. B-2384 is the last of five A340-313Xs still in service, and will be retired upon arrival in PVG.
