2-TBXH (msn 540), an A320-232, formerly with Sichuan Airlines [3U/CSC] (China), is making its ferry flight from CAN to GYR (via GUM and HNL), as it's being returned to its lessor. It's scheduled to make a brief fuel stop at HNL.

540 was originally purchased by ILFC, and leased to Sichuan Airlines in December 1995 as B-2340. From July 2008 to June 2010, it was sub-leased to United Eagle Airlines [EU/UEA] (China), wearing a hybrid livery. In May 2014, ILFC sold this A320 to AerCap, and the lease with Sichuan continued until this past month, where B-2340 was withdrawn from service to be returned to AerCap.
