    Owned by Government of Japan/JASDF
    Japanese Air Force One and Japanese Air Force Two are the radio callsigns of the two Boeing 747 aircraft used by the government of Japan for overseas travel by the Emperor, Prime Minister and other high-ranking officials. Radio callsigns Cygnus One and Cygnus Two when operating outside of official business (e.g., on training flights). These aircrafts will be replaced by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in fiscal year 2019

    Hi Umedah, well they use the A340 mainly (ADA,ADB and ADC) to routes in the Middle East,India and Maldives.These are the three which would be going out of service this year.The aircraft are poorly maintained and are used for these shuttle short haul services. UL 121 was almost 40% emplty when i flew it last Tuesday. It had uncomfortable seats almost falling off and IFE not functioning properly.
    A friend of mine flying UL 154 (ADE) was stuck in the toilet for almost 10 minutes due to a jammed door.
    Overall them A340's have a high operation cost and poor maintenance which is why UL operate their A330's to Europe and thier A340's to South Asia and the Middle East

    Spice Jet Bombardier Q400 Landing in Colombo

    Spice Jet Bombardier Q400 operating as SG 3341 on a daily scheduled flight from Madurai (IXM) lands at Colombo Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB)

    Spice Jet is a great budget carrier and definitely one of the best with a new fleet of Boeing 737-800 and 737-900ER aircraft along with Bombardier Q400 aircraft.
    Comfortable seats,plenty of legroom,good customer service and crew as well as great food.Overall a great airline which i would definitely recommend to everyone as a superb budget carrier and one of the finest.

    Flew SG 291 (Boeing 737-800 VT-SZB) from MAA to IXM
    Here's SG 3341 (Bombardier Q400 VT-SUM) from MAA landing at CMB
