Leather seats? Are they going to furnish G-CDPT with leather as well then? Every seat in that aircraft is currently cloth. Where is their 2nd 767 coming from? Reg?

I've heard that they will be getting them from ILFC, who in turn will be getting them from AA, who are currently leasing the B757. Will have to wait and see. They will get them though, as they do need them for their Canada operation.

Yes all AA 757s are RR powered. The 757s from TWA had P&W power. AA choose to keep them, but shortened the leases. I think those leases are due to expire before the end of 2007.

Im not sure how many 757s are PW powered but some are definately going to delta.

Any GSM insider explain the current timetable for BHX-YHM in 2007

Two flights currently showing Monday and Thursday in the timetable
but when you go to book Monday it just offers the Thursday one.

The timings also seem to indicate a a YHM based aircraft when I
thought it was the STN one routing through on a Wednesday.

Should only be operating on a Thursday o/b and Wednesday i/b. The times look like a YHM based a/c as the o/b is via BHX but i/b is via BFS. Wednesday flight operates from STN via EXT o/b and via BHX i/b.

Interesting about the 757s from American - they are offloading all the P&W 757s they inherited from TWA. There had been some talk of NWA picking up the remaining ones that Delta didn't get, but this has gone quiet of late - the TWA aircraft are already etops certified. With all this expansion, I hope Globespan do not overextend themselves.

Sorry I should have been clearer. all 757-223s have Rollers(these were ordered byAA) ALL 757-231s have P&Ws. AA is ridding itself of the -231s, as these were originally TWA aircraft. We all know how keen AMR is to rid itself of all TWA memories, and these are the last ones.

Anyways, are GSM definately taking 757s in the comming months? Where is it going to deploy them, the 75 is very flexable though and should have good payloads out of scotland to the farther throws of package holiday destinations. Both to the East, West and South!

Seriously though GSM may find it tough to get good 757s at a decent price, the 75 is in great demand at the moment. Twenty years after they got them the yanks have finally realised how to deploy them!

757s are essentially for Canada routes from YHM. One will operate the LPL-JFK route.
