I think Air Blue needs to code share with a Turkish carrier out of Istanbul and serve multiple European destinations offering a one stop service.

Same should be done to the Far East and Australia and operate flights into Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok or even Singapore.

Code share flights to Australia is a must and Air Blue can maybe do it with Malaysia or SIA, an airline not serving Pakistan.

I wonder if Air Blue is going to install some kind of club class on the A321-251N as that would be a must for any codeshare agreements.

Is AirBlue not taking delivery of it because of COVID or some other reason?

Exact reason for airblue A321neo storage in Rostock unknown.

airblue brand new Airbus A320 registration AP-EDA also remained in storage in France for seventeen months before delivery to the airline on December 16, 2010. That aircraft had performed its first pre-delivery test flight under French registration F-WWIT on July 1, 2009.
