Grahamy, MKY661 has correctly stated the 767's leaving the fleet this winter.

Pamann, Sorry my mistake. The list has now been amended.

Curious Pax, The third 787 will operate mainly short haul flights next summer. The flights are currently shown as operating on a 767.

Thanks MKY661 & Sam
So if i am right that leaves just 2 versions of the 767 instead of the 4 they have at the moment hopefully all in long haul config . Next year will it be the same as the past few years where the ex tom flies from MAN & LGW and ex FCA flies from the regional airports ?

G-FDZA has been in NWI for 3 days now, wonder if it is getting the new livery or it might be being painted into full Sunwing livery?

actually 4 x 787 will be delivered buy May 13, 2 of which will op s/h replacing various 757 flts & act as a back up for 2 doing l/h, this is also being done to speed up pilots getting required number of sectors as no5 is due in december.

"I thought that OOOX lease wasn't up until december."

Correct, Dec 6th to be exact.

However the end of lease maintenance takes at least a month hence it going for check on 30th October at Monarch MAN.

MON SFB

Now that Monarch are not operating the SFB in the summer from CWL (although they have sold seats through Cosmos), could this be an opportunity for Thomson to pick this up on the 787?

As much as I would like this to happen the reality is that the landing fees at CWL are too high. And also TOM won't bother checking out CWL crew on the 787 as they are not even bothering to check out the GLA and EMA crew they are using MAN and LGW crew to operate the flighs
