I believe the Ambassador reference is possibly alluding to a person visiting travel agents to promote Thomas Cook as a company. They may not be employed directly by Thomas Cook but by a third-party and conduct product training and trade campaigning.

Spotters or not, these are not really the updated rumour posts I want to be reading in the TCX thread ie about what planned rego swap happens downwind.

Thank god it's not just me thinking this

This thread has just descended into someone's personal, possibly school project and risks (hopefully) getting shut down if it doesn't move on and quick.

Mods can you have a word please

Has somebody got a list of the routes the Condor 757-300 is flying from Man this summer, flew back last night on ABOA and I have to say what a smart looking interior and very clean, couldn't fault the flights.

Given the current publicity surrounding Thomas Cook, they may soon need all the help they can get.

Air Tanker/TCX

Flew MAN/CUN recently on the recently introduced air tanker A330. What a retrograde step this aircraft is, seat pitch is good at 35inch but the material is very hard grade cloth. No seat back IFE system just three wall mounted small flat panel screens on forward bulkhead and six drop down screens for the rest of the cabin. From our seats on row thirteen our nearest watchable screen was fifteen feet away. Row one six and seven have a toilet door very close to them (premium seats) TCX management need to look closely at thompsons 787s. The crew who were all Scottish were excellent and the meals were much improved over last year. James Martin now overseeing the cuisine. Cheers Sam

Air Tanker Jobbie

This particular A330 is part of Air Tankers surge fleet, which means it comes in basic military format, and is leased to TC with the agreement of the RAF. In a national emergency it can be recalled `to the colours` as it were, to be used as part of a troop airlift. I would imagine the lease rates are much cheaper for TC and as its a new aircraft it should be reliable..

Maybe best to avoid this one though if you are going long haul on holidays..Its basically a squaddie carrier

Christoph Debus has said the Air Tanker is being taken out of service in the next couple of months to be completely refurbed to the standards they requested ie the same as the rest of the A330s. 31" pitch and seatback IFE. It will remain all economy as originally planned.

Air tanker/TCX

That's good to know its getting an upgrade, 10:30 flying time outbound and 9:20 on the inbound leg were the most uncomfortable I have done for a long time. I believe they are leasing a second one next year. Cheers sam

Seems peculiarly strange to take an aircraft out of service, in the peak season,to refurb it, especially when it has just been delivered from Airbus..still you never know with TCX these days do you?

TCX848

TCX 848 heading from Manchester to New York has returned to Manchester after heading out over the Atlantic. Didn't declare emergency and made a safe landing. Doesn't appear to be anything too major as you'd have thought they'd have diverted to Shannon, but does anyone know what happened?
