Perhaps TCD are just getting an allocation of seatsvon MYT/TCX. Its not that an unreasonable suggestion.

From what I have seen from others the MAN SFB flights till February are to be an XL Airways 767 then replaced by a MYT 330 until the summer whne a leased XL Airways France 330 will take over for the summer. Presumably then XL Airways UK 330 will take over when they are delivered.

An XL France (formerly Star) A330-200 will operate the MAN-SFB programme from 1st May. XL's own A330s will be delivered in winter 2008.

For info all the 747s have gone as have the 757s, 767-200s (G-BOPB is currently flying Hajj but has effectively left the fleet) and 767-300 G-VKNH, leaving G-VKNG/I to operate the longhaul services.

Cheers

NG op UK-SFB and NI op UK-Caribbean. Strong noises from AAI that their new 744 (TF-ANA) new to them from All Nippon is being wet leased to XLA

Having a more detailed look at the current plan shows that LGW/MAN-SFB flights will be a MYT A330 from 29Feb. It becomes a TCX callsign from 30Mar but I dare say it's the same aircraft. The above is to cover planned maint on the XL 763 fleet. From 1May LGW-SFB reverts to XL 763 and MAN-SFB will be XL France A330.

Interesting to read about the AAI 744. I understand Florida bookings are really strong at the moment due to the weak dollar so I wouldn't be surprised to see extra capacity being sought. We'll see in time no doubt.

Cheers

XL/ Stansted.

I might have missed any possible comment on this, if so, how sad, never mind. Anybody know if XL are doing the Corfu charter flights from Stansted in 2008? Please!

=======================================================
That's encouraging! I am planning to go early June, in fact I AM going at that time, around June 9th. From Stansted.

As a matter of interest, surely, the sky's of London are crowded! Why is the unused Alconbury ignored for expansion instead of HTR? It has a lengthy runway, plenty of land but, the flight path would encroach on John Major's peace of mind I suppose!

Grrr

Are they charters on behalf of another tour operator rather than one from the XL stable?

Buster.....They could be, however I travel flight only and deal with XL exclusively so I can't be sure.

In edit.....There's no indication of a third party on the bumf. Just looked at last years.

XL flights Summer 2008

The STN website has highlighted all XL flights with the Union Flag, as it is the only UK owned charter airline flying from STN.
