    EI-XLC tech engine issues, supposedly getting the parts in today from the B742 Kalita Airways currently on the ground and then EI-XLC is supposedly doing a 3 engined ferry flight to SNN on Friday for the maintenance, the other Rossiya B744 in the hangar is still getting painted, can't remember the registration
    Would it not have made sense to have flown the Kalita B752 to SNN with the parts?

    Possibly the aircraft has some defects that have time expired and have to be fixed before the next flight. There will some defects that have not time expired and can be carried forward to Shannon for repair.

    It must have a fair few defects in that case.

    Not necessarily. BA had to hire an Antonov 124 to get an engine intake out to an A380 that got damaged in MIA and then bring the damaged intake back to LHR. Just one item.

    Last I heard is they would be in SNN for at least 10 days but may be longer.
