Is G-VKSS the other one returning to service?

All of the 333s are meant to be returning to Heathrow and flying again over the coming months but one is due from Doncaster on Thursday. KSS is having a routine landing gear replacement so will be away at maintenance for a few weeks and will then enter service.

Are they taking a punt (despite all public evidence to the contrary) that something is gonna pick up by end of March/April time?

There seems little optimism that this is going to happen en masse and unless there’s some huge cargo contract that they have netted I can’t see the logic yet in bringing the 333s out of storage?

That being said, I assume, that the programme to do so is a multi month one, with presumably a large proportion of flight deck crew due some kind of reassessment on the type before being authorised back on the line?
