I expect that at some point after ten days with only three aircraft they will start to run into maintenance issues.
There are plenty of significant technical defects that an aircraft can legally and safely operate with that are categorised as having a "C rectification interval" which is ten days. I don't have Airbus experience but with Boeing an example might be a centre hydraulic pump - one of six could be INOP but at the end of 10 callander days the aircraft would be grounded until it is replaced and there could be significant maintenance downtime required for this.
I imagine that if these aircraft are flying around the clock without proper downtime then defects will start to build up in the tech log.
This will be manageable for a short while providing there are no defects that ground the aircraft. However, as I've warned before, you cannot fly a fleet of three aircraft flat out for long. It will just go pear shaped very quickly. Once you're down to two aircraft flying flat out things just get worse.
I'm not being pessimistic, just realistic. Hopefully the fourth aircraft is back soon and everything runs smoothly for the time being.
I'm still optimistic that we will get an approval from one of the authorities at any moment (I also expect that they have been holding off with a general update until this happens)
That feels better like a shot in the arm, my buy showing as a sell as usual, surprised and not surprised that we are not on the rise. Couple hundred pounds of sell's and we drop 2p 100,000 plus buys and we don't move.
