Why is it "Wierd" that you flew on that aircraft this year?

Thousands and thousands of people have flown on that aircraft this year and many other years.

Hardly "wierd" is it?

Well he's only 14 so probably hasn't flown that many times. It probably is quite wierd that an a/c he has been on has popped up on a forum he is into. Give him a break.

Maybe i was a bit harsh.....

STN by the way, has a single based A321 for the winter 08/09 season and it's expected to stay like that throughout Summer 2009.

LTN is a 50/50 possibility with a based A320

Well that's a 'Bit' stupid of TCX!!

What about a set of transfers with 'santa' on the side for 2 weeks?

Credit Crunch = It's all media spin, Yule wouldn't think there was a 'Credit Crunch when you go into LEEDS/MANCHESTER on a Saturday and It's crowded with shoppers spending money like water on 'Silly' Xmas!!

People cry poor, As a motivation to make more money!!

(The obvious is not always the apparent)

No Santa titles = Is TCX going 'silly' or what?

I think you will find that TCX is no longer a "MYT run airline" - vast majority of higher up people or now ex-TCX - Hence the profit i assume!!

Envoy 320...your posting demonstrates the attitude which causes so much acrimony between ex-TCX and ex-MYT pilots. It causes CRM problems when on the ground and in the air when manifested. Grow up, son. And stop your petty sniping here.

Roy....

2 things.....

CRM problems in the air generally are caused when people dont get on or people have attitudes and are unapproachable.....sounds like that could ring a bell roy baby!

Secondly....you sound like a right idiot.....glad i don't know you personally.

Just out of interest Envoy, on the flying side of things:

MD: ex myt
DFO: ex myt
Chief Pilot: Now external, was ex myt as of a few weeks ago
Training Mgr: ex myt
Fleet Ops mgrs: Both myt
Fleet mgrs: One myt + one tcx.
Crewing:ex myt
Hotac: ex myt

"I think you'll find" that there are far more myt bods making the decisions than anyone else in the airline.
The above is indeed (or was) true.

As things stand now:

MD: ex myt
DFO: ex myt (but for how long?)
CP: external (wonder why the ex myt chap went?)
Training manager: (do we have one?) allegedly ex MYT
Fleet Ops Mgrs: under notice
Fleet Mgrs: one tcx, one myt
Base Pilot mgrs: under notice
Crewing: Ex TCX (Jane)
Rostering: EX TCX (Jeremy)
HOTAC: Rumour has it the chap (LMYT) was fired about a month ago. Hopefully someone has already phoned Alison!

One wonders why these changes were made, if our management were as wonderful as they claimed!

However, getting away from this LMYT and LTCX crap, we all now fly for one airline and work for one tour operator. Its about time we all tried to make this airline one we would all like to work for and stop harping on about the past!
