Aeroflot Is Reportedly Using Its Young Airbus A350s For Spare Parts

  • Published on Aug 11, 2022
  • With sanctions forbidding any export of aircraft or their spare parts from the EU or the US to Russia, it was only a matter of time before airlines needed to cannibalize their own fleets to maintain operations. In an interesting new report, Russian flag carrier Aeroflot has begun stripping one of its brand-new Airbus A350s for parts.

    The A350 has so many exotic and leading edge technologies. I am not aware of any agency in Iran - including military aviation supplier - who can properly produce spare parts that are identical in material, dimensions, weight, and most importantly QUALITY... I think the real question is how many critical parts can an A350 safely fly WITHOUT. Russia may show us the answer if they drag things out long-term

    I expect they have a stock of the commonly replaced components as any airline would. My guess would be you will start to see aircraft out of service when the sensors or electronic systems fail.

      @derek20la ARJ21 and C919 depend on Western components as much as an A320 or 737. They can't afford to break the sanction rules unless they can clone 100%, or Winne the Pool goes wild.

    ILFC got burned in 2013 when aircraft on lease to defunct airline Krasair were effectively seized under dubious 'customs paperwork'. I don't know if GECAS is leasing over there, but, I have to agree that nobody is going to lease diddly squat to a Russian airline after this. I assume it'll turn into a massive insurance flop, but still, nobody's going to willingly go into a known headache.

  • Mit Seraffej
    Mit Seraffej Month ago +2

    I assume the sanctions also prohibit the plane makers providing technical advice to the Russian airlines. There is not an airline in the “ civilised “ world that does not seek such advice to keep their fleet airworthy.

    Shame to see all the energy and resources that went into making the planes, go to waste, by this dissembly. Then again, it pales in comparison with the waste of resouces and lives of the war that's being waged. It would be nice if mankind could someday shake off this urge to destroy.

  • Killefitz 35
    Killefitz 35 Month ago +20

    Modern aircraft are flying supercomputers. Critical or electronic parts send signals to manufacturers or airline headquaters, even the Coffeemakers on board, to be more servicable. The engineers on the ground get noticed of a failure part, as the plane is still flying in, so they can get a spare in advance to repair the plane as soon, as it has landed. Remember: they were tracking the missing Malasia 777 by its engines technical signals through satilite. They will know instantly if parts are changed in from another plane or sourced from another friendly country.
    Unfortuantely this is not good for the statistics, as otherwise clean stats like the 787, 350 will have plane crashes with this.
    I hope this is not a Laboratory for the plane makers, to see, how can we lower quality and earn even more money until a plane crashes.

    • Jordon David
      Jordon David Month ago

      Not true. There's regular replacement items especially on the engines. If they're GE or Pratt or Rolls Royce especially, Russia is not getting them. Redundant systems for sensors computers but there's 2 engines and when regular parts wear isn't done your down to one.

      @Trevor Austin Where do you see theft here? The measures were taken in response to Western sanctions and asset freezes (same as theft pretty much, just different wording used). In fact, a foreign lessor can request that a Russian lessee keeps making payments on the planes, but they will be in RUB, onto an account in a Russian bank, and can be converted to EUR or USD only when the asset freezes lifted. No theft really.

  • Alex Beuerman

    I think it is more likely that Iran will use its extensive network of straw purchasers to procure *already existing* parts for Russian airlines than actually make new ones. If you work in aviation parts procurement and you suddenly get a lot of orders for stuff only used on the 737NG, 777 and A350 from sketchy Armenian shell companies, keep an eye on that.

  • Joseph Ybarra

  • Neil Pickup

    I suppose it all depends on how frequently a part needs to be changed, and how many are fitted to each aircraft.
    Also, in the case of, for example cockpit windows where each pane is unique, a few unfortunate bird-strikes could eat through the available supplies - engines too!

  • Ian McAllister

    For those who see this as scrapping, it isn't. Aircraft parts are very modular. Engines, all instruments, flaps, all interior parts, landing gear, windows, doors, etc. are all removeable for use on other aircraft. What will render the aircraft as scrap is doing this at an unapproved repair station.

    • Mark S

      @Orbit No it dont, planes are removed from service for ALOT of reasons.
      Major Checks ABCD

      Anytime a plane cant fly for its airline its OUT OF SERVICE. Thats all it is. Every plane FedEX owns came in as out of service MD10s MD11 etc, they just register them and tada, back in service and ready to fly

    • Chris Lam
      Chris Lam Month ago

      It's scrapping when you have to pull out the plane from flying and get the parts for the other aircraft.
      Same thing happened to the retired 747 and many other plane, their engines and other valuable parts will go to the other planes to keep them in the sky for longer.

    • Mark Evans
      Mark Evans Month ago +2

      Without the correct paperwork, it can be very expensive to recertify parts.
      In the case of whole aircraft doing so may cost more than ordering a new one from Boeing or Airbus.

    • Orbit
      Orbit Month ago +4

      It’s still being removed from service, which by definition means it’s being scrapped, even if the parts are being used to revitalize other aircraft.

  • 12345fowler

    When you mean "belonging" did you actually check that they indeed belong to them, aka these are aircrafts that were paid out by Aeroflot or they could be leased aircrafts ? Obvioulsy apply to the A350 in your story, not the other Russian RJ.

    The Point is that every part has its paperwork atached to it. When the planes are returned at some point , they have to redo all of that . For every part of the plane. Or it will never be allowed to fly international again. In most cases that is so mutch work that it's cheaper to write the plane off as a loss. Almost none of the planes stuck in russia will fly outside of russia ever again.

      For now most consequences strike arrogant united West and Europe particulary. Russia survived sanctions without any visible damage to economy. Russians partying hardd on all sea resorts all over the world

      @EJK k about 75 of the Russian People share the opinion of the Government. At least regarding the "special Operation" in Ukraine.

      You shouldn't be happy that people's lives are going to be put in danger. The enemy is the Russian government... not the Russian people.

    They can't, beause they have no international certification. They can only be operated in "piate" mode in isolated airspace.

    this is terrible. I understand if sanctions were imposed only on military parts, but why on civilian ones? put innocent people in danger?

    Not sure I see the logic in dismantling a nearly new plane to use as spare parts for an old plane. Why not just use the almost new plane instead and ditch the old 1.... Use the old 1 for any spare parts that are still serviceable.

      Yes, I bet there is many an old dog being dug out of the weeds across Russia either for parts or to be considered for reactivation to airline status.

    Russia needs to start looking for propeller powered planes from the 50s , they didn’t have electronics and were simple , that’s the only way I see Russia having aviation

      @Хью Моржоуи if it can produce the planes, why won't they fly them instead of buying western airplanes?

    • Хью Моржоуи
      Хью Моржоуи Month ago

      @Dan Martin Fortunately Russia v can produce them itself or order in china in 1-2 years. Recently the very first flight with PD-14 solely Russia-produced engines was performed.

      @Хью Моржоуи Unfortunatley, the SSJ100 requires a lot of international parts, and so does the MC-21 (for now), so the IL-96 would be the latest plane that Russia could produce.
