11334 100 VH-FNC Alliance Airlines announced that this F100 is part of their fleet since 24 May 2024. The online Australian Register still has Virgin Regional as the operator. The aircraft is parked at Perth airport since 30 April 2024.
11489 100 VH-FNJ Virgin Australia. Cancelled from the register 18 June 2024 as scrapped.
11585 70 PJ-JAB JetAir Caribbean. The F70 flew the airline's final service from St. Maarten to Curaçao on 18 June 2024 as 4J523. It needs a new engine, so we expect it not to fly again soon, if ever.

Following their F100, Karun Airlines has now applied the new livery to the first F50 EP-PET (20283). The aircraft is apparently to be reactivated, although still missing an engine. (Hesam_hsnzde; Ahwaz on Planespotters, 10 June 2024)


Another F50 on the way to Kenya. 5Y-NWA (20307) will fly for Renegade Air; it is former SE-MFC (Largus Aviation) and RP-C9981 (Leading Edge Aviation), whose logo is still on the tail. (Ian Madigan; Heraklion, 11 June 2024)

Montenegro Airlines 4O-AOT (11350) has not flown for over ten years. It looks still intact, but dirty. (Konrad Wyszynski on JetPhotos; Podgorica, 13 April 2024)
