Talking Ryanair 757 at STN!?

Rumours abound here in the crew room in STN that we (Ryanair) have bought or are hiring an Excel 757?

Some of the cabin crew have got courses coming up on it, and they are going to be using contract pilots??

Anybody know anymore as we are not being told much about it!!??

Makes sense if the Air Atlanta 757 are staying on the TF reg and not joining the 767's and 747's on the G reg which are operated with JAA crews.

Hi,

Excel has 3 757's leased from Air Atlanta (TF-ARD, TF-ARE and TF-ARI). All 3 757-200's are in full Excel colours.

DFC Not quite. Any old license=Icelandic validation=able to fly TF.
It is only when the Atlantic's 757s become G that you need a real JAR Licence.
