Think it's been at Brize Norton since beginning of July. Thomas Cook website says it's operating from GLA from next week.

Will be based at GLA all winter.

Thanks. I know it was due to operate STN-MCO yesterday but it was changed to Hi-Fly. Passengers were only informed at check in so I presume the refit has over run a bit?

Don't think too many have been chuffed with the Hifly experience at GLA so good luck ti STN passengers but yes I would assume the refit has run a bit longer than expected which id imagine Air tanker are covering!

The air tanker is back in service, positioned up to GLA a few days ago.

The majority of the STN long haul has been on hi-fly, there have been very few flights on TCX metal form what I gather.

TCBB was wfu on Saturday after operating HER-GLA. Has been on remote stand since.

TCBC was wfu at the end of September, but was recalled and is still flying.

WJAN will leave the fleet sometime next month.

FCLI will remain in the fleet until the end of the year, operating TFS-GLA as it's last flight on the 31st December.

My understanding is that both G-TCBB and G-TCBC were due into Southend for EOL checks. There were rumors of G-WJAN going to SF Airlines

Hi
Can anyone in the know help here please...(armchair speculators can save their fingertips).

We have booked a large party from MAN to one of the Caribbean islands next month. We all wanted to go Premium Economy but we were told it wasn't available ......yet. We are all prepared to pay the extra premium for Premium Economy and effectively we are saying to TC ' We want to give you more money'.
Every time we ask TC about the situation, all we get is 'watch this space' or 'we are waiting for the delivery of another aircraft' and 'keep phoning back'.

Does anyone know if we will get our PE seats or not?
And a general note to TC - parts of the Caribbean are often considered premium destinations so it should not be too much of a surprise that some punters want to fly in PE (at least).

My wife and I just last week booked return PE seats for 3-17 March 2016 for MAN-UVF but we booked a Thomas Cook holiday through our local Co-op Travel shop. I understand that the seats are available even so this is one where I would go through an agent as they do have contacts. Good luck and I hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply Domy Dom.
Although we have booked through TC themselves, it seems even they don't have a definitive answer. Given that we are traveling next month, it seems as though they have some doubt that this 'new aircraft' will arrive on time (or maybe fitted out on time). I guess by the time you go in the Spring that should be resolved.
In the meantime we are in limbo.
I find it a little odd that we are a group of people able and willing to give TC more money for a better product and they are still struggling to take our money! Hopefully someone in TC will read this and advise.
Enjoy St Lucia!!
