Have TCX managed to source additional A330s next year or are they struggling like pretty much every other operator without options to exercise?

According to jethros there's an extra A332 joining in April 2017.

Come 2017 i think lack of capacity will be the least of many Uk Airlines problems....

Seating on A321

I kniw its been a race to the bottom for years now, and TCX are making money again, but just endured a 4.5 hour flight to the Canaries on a newbuild A321.

Seats comfortable enough except for woeful seat squab length. And I am 5ft8. Can't get any tighter, can it?

I know Onti... I'm flying out of EMA on Thursday to ACE.. both based TCX aircraft at the mo are DA and DV. ironically the two aircraft I flew to and from HER on last summer.

So if anyone from TCX ops is reading this any chance of a new one being drafted in to EMA for Thursday please

Unless one goes Tech, you might end up with a swap... DZ and DY have been up recently, but again the old ones.

Seems like older models are only rotated LGW/EMA/MAN/STN

Reported on another forum that 3 Condor 757-300's will join the TCX fleet for summer 17, and 763 TCCA will be gone back to the lessor, with TCCB not far behind

The source on the forum says the remaining two 767's TCCB and DAJC will go to condor for winter and at the moment both will be back for summer, however both could remain at condor for a further 757-300. So whichever way it goes, UK gains aircraft. And as far as I am aware capacity on the two isn't too different when the 767's are in shorthaul config

G-TCDV looks like it went Tech yesterday aftenoon at EMA, so G-TCDE was bought in from MAN and been operating since... Just missed out on the chance for sharklets

TCCB will still be around next Summer, I reckon it'll go after that.

Does anyone know what will happen with the crewing of the new LTN - DLM. The flight does MAN - DLM - LTN - DLM -MAN. The plane will be an a320.

Boeing

1 crew operates LTN-DLM-MAN and the other MAN-DLM-LTN.
1 crew probably taxi MAN-LTN after the flight and I suspect either a LTN crew will position the day before to go into the Hotel and op MAN-DLM-LTN or a MAN crew will op MAN-DLM-LTN and either taxi straight back or rest in Hotel and taxi back.
Its all glamour for sure....

Anyone know if the last remaining A321s in the old livery will be sprayed this winter ? Believe there is still JH,KO,DV,DA & DB in the blue & white.

Are any more A330's supposed to be joining the fleet over the winter? I know there will be a 330 coming for the summer from scandi again as normal but with the extra routes and frequency increases id have thought at least one would be needed

azz767 they are due to get OY-VKG from DK, this is one of the A330-300's though, so not sure what they will do with it.

That's what I wondered, especially as the 300's regularly do Europe for DK, this year it was a 200 that came (OY-VKF) and did long haul, which with a 300 coming next year made me wonder whether they would get another 200 of their own. Maybe even two as there was the hi fly bird doing GLA & STA ops as well this year.
