Looks like TCX are getting another A330 from Air Tanker. The TCX website is now listing G-VYGM in addition to the existing leased A330.

I take it this will mean G-CHTZ will be getting a premium cabin for next summer as it is part of the 'core fleet'? Also what config is TCXC in currently?

I thought G-CHTZ had already been fitted with a Premium cabin in April, and TCXC was fitted with one when it was originally refurbished. Only the AT without AFAIK.

hi - just wondering has anyone flown on an air tanker A330, and how it compares to TCX own metal?

cheers

Does anybody know why all the Flight Numbers have changed, before it was easy to see where each flight had originated from: MT1XXX LGW, MT2XXX MAN, MT4XXX BHX...

And I believe Long Haul could be identified by the fact they only had 3 digits eg MTxxx

Every single Thomas Cook aircraft will be either new or refurbished in time for summer 2017, following a £100 million investment.

Cook’s fleet of 89 airplanes carries more than 6.7 million passengers a year to 60 destinations across Europe, Asia, Africa and America.

It includes ten Airbus A330s and AirbusA320s, Airbus A321s, Boeing 757-300s and Boeing 767.

Travel Weekly was told the refurbishment programme will be completed at Cook’s conference in Paphos, Cyprus.

Short/medium haul are 28 - 30" so same or more than TOM and ZB. Their long haul seat pitch has reduced. It was 33" in economy but when they refurbed the A330s and went to 2-4-2 they reduced it to 31", in line with most full service carriers.

Two going to Condor at the end of this winter season, and the other one is staying with TCX until the end of Summer 2019 as far as I know.

Summer 2018

Thomas Cook Airlines UK - 17 new routes, seven new own-brand hotels for Summer 2018 on sale

Spoof or real? From the Thomas Cook website but the wording is really unusual and I am sure they know what they are on about but I don't.

There is a bizarre list of new routes and then miss the best addition for BHX - Thessaloniki, which is actually mentioned in the text later on. Tell me I am seeing things and they haven't listed "Arecife" as a new BHX destination? I suppose it could be classed as new as for the last 40 years flights have gone to Arrecife - is this an alternative spelling?

I was going to say is it work experience week at TC HQ but that would be an insult to the work experience kids.
