Steady on - the post was edited after FL370s question so the position applied for may not have been clear at the time of OfficeBoy's post...


Incidentally, Kestrel Stu et al...

Anyone know which A332 is operating MAN-CUN on Tues 5th May as TCX21K?

G-OJMB, G-MDBD and G-TCXA are operating at Manchester at the moment, but like Envoy320 said, it's too early to state the actual aircraft allocation and it can change at very short notice.

Last time I flew the 330 the assigned reg changed on the day!

it's generally wither ex TCX or ex MYT in both directions though as the configs are slightly different

TCX are suffering many tech delays as of late here at manchester, at least two yesterday including the gambia route operated by a 767 plus a route operated by the A321.

its seems like the ex-myt aircraft are playing a major part in most of the delays at the moment,hopefully the problems with get ironed out before the summer season kicks in.

must admit they are most definitely the better of the charter airlines, bar far!

ok i know a few guys at man, so im alittle baised

i don't think it's the fact that the aircraft are ex-MYT - i think it's just bad luck that they both happened at the same time....

G-STAW

dont get too carried away by a couple of small delays. The company actually logged 95% OTP yesterday!!! And to be quite frank, it matters not whether the aircraft concerned are ex TCX or ex MYT, they are now all TCX. OTP is at the top of the agenda for the forthcoming season with a sensible, highly profitable programme, albeit EXTREMELY busy. But at least we are still expanding when others are falling by the wayside.

Why's that?

Palma season starts in April really, and it's a bank holiday week.....

And the A320's are scheduled on the lower density routes.

PMI has always been a fairly high density route

Does anyone know if the A330-300 that is coming from Thomas Cook Scandinavia for the summer has been re-painted into the new colours yet or is it still in the MYT scheme. I know they have repainted one or two of the A321's but why so slow in Scandinavia.

Who gives a Rats what colour any aeroplane is, or indeed which one is doing which route?
There will be an aeroplane there to take you on your holidays. Is that not enough?

Ah come on SFCC, we must be doing something right if that's all they can worry about! Maybe ignorance (of all the other bits that are the bane of our lives) is bliss and who are we to spoil that.

When you are sitting comfortably in your seat does it really matter what the colour of the plane is on the outside or what the registration mark is !!!! SFCC I am with you on this one.
