Last I heard it was damaged by a ground handling incident in Punta Cana - that was maybe 10 days ago- Maybe it is still there or ferried somewhere for repairs.

thats a nightmare with high season about to start, im guessing theres not too much slack in the A330 timetable. Wonder if Air Tanker could provide a Air Force grey one for a short spell!

Almost certainly not as they have only one demilitarised frame left and thats' used for the Cyprus, Poland, Kenya, Canada and Falklands semi schedules from Brize.

All the other frames are now with the RAF as tankers and Mrs May's shuttle

There are large aircraft available from Malta on short notice if needs be

Winglet missing for 2-3 weeks, due to an encounter with a hangar door. Covered up with speed tape for every sector since. Reason for the return was low oil on engine no 1.

Following on from the news in the MAN thread about Thomas Cook launching MAN-SEA for next summer, will there be more A330's acquired, leases extended on planes such as the Air Tanker examples or using existing assets by stopping things like using A330's on short-haul turns?

It looks like 7 MAN based A330 next summer at the very least, with 8 required on a Thursday and Sunday at this stage, press release for the Seattle flight mentions MAN will be 8 based A330 next summer.

There is also gaps on Mon/Wed which would easily fit in the hotly rumoured Tampa and even the other highly rumoured San Diego should TCX feel brave and add multiple routes.

So Air Berlin has filed for bankruptcy and has 17 A330-200 aircraft in its fleet. Could this be a perfect opportunity for TCX to grab some much needed aircraft to fulfill its long haul ambitions?

Jethros is suggesting a big fleet swap this winter between TC and Condor with all 757-300s going to Condor this winter, A321s coming the other way and 767s finally being retired - guess the onerous tax leases from Airtours days must finally be over? Is this "new news" or was this big switch always the plan?

It was always the plan. The 753s will be back.

Has it been reported here that Thomas Cook will no longer have bases at Belfast and Stansted next summer?

Not quite true ref STN, BFS and EMA.
Still be TCX bases as such, but flown with ACMI aeroplanes therefore not TCX pilot bases.
