"SN seems to have recurring problems with its L/H fleet. After OO-SFU which flew there last week, OO-SFO is now gone to Malta too; C-check? tech problem? bad planning? They have had to cancel AFI flights almost every day in the last 3-4 weeks. Meanwhile OO-SFU was sitting in ZRH waiting for the paint to dry."
