For the English speakers here this is a translation via Microsoft...... try not to laugh! I like the idea of Beluga's attending a wedding.......
'Framed of Hamburg port and the area of cultivation of fruit of the old person of country hides itself at the southern Elbufer a world enterprise - with 34 hectares of total area quasi a city in the city. With 12.300 jobs Airbus-Finkenwerder Hamburg is largest private employer.
In the foreground this time the “small” airbus types stand. Thus the first airbus was delivered at American Airlines. Altogether the American airline ordered 260 machines of the type A319. With a volume of 20 billion dollar is it the largest conclusion of airbus history. Beside the entire Führungsriege of the enterprise minutes boss Kerstin fount man expects more than 100 guests from the USA. Regardless of the solemn ceremony production in Hamburg-Finkenwerder continues. Three times per day a Beluga transport aircraft with parts lands out completely Europe. This to Hamburg brought to the wedding, then the coworkers call in France and in Germany manufactured trunk halves joining'
There are now 8 outfitting bays in Finki. However they aren't all the same. Halle 241-246 are the 'old outfitting bays'. The other 213 and 214 are very new and when I was in there (August-->possible that they changed since then, because you could clearly see that they hadn't been in use for long) they weren't the same as the others (didn't have the docks that 241-246 have and the frames aren't as good accessible from how it looked to me). But they are not for the Flightline (like 211 and 212). I didn't quite get the concept of these two bays. I think there are kinda in between FAL and Flightline, but tending to be FAL.
They also did wing fixes in all the other bays (was really annoying, because sooo loud).
I think that an EK was in the right bay (looking from the delivery center) that had one of its engine removed, because the pylon had to get fixed or something like that. I am not sure, but I think a THAI was in the other bay.
The 2 extra bays were used for wing fixes indeed, and indeed we believe some of the wing fixes were done in the usual bays, what we actually are wondering is if any wing fix was done in the same time as outfitting?...
foreigner, there are in fact 2 paint bays, I believe we believed that one of them wasn't used all the time but in the documentary from Finkenwerder lately I think they were saying that both paint bays were used all the time.
