Or maybe not - why would TCX want to slowly drop out of the scene? If they wanted out, they'd just go.

BTW - Nouvelair have been flying for UK and European tour operators for twenty years.

No W's operated by NCL based aircraft next year. Would like to think a few could be added by another base like MAN for us though.

Seems Thomas Cook are ending all flights from Leeds Bradford which I think were served on W pattern from Newcastle based a/c - Sure Antalya was at least.
Anyone can confirm?

Newcastle Airport soars to 10-year high as passenger numbers top five million

Airport chief executive Nick Jones said: “2017 was another fantastic year for Newcastle International. Passenger numbers were the highest in a decade, making it the seventh year of continuous growth, and I’m pleased to see numbers continuing to increase through 2018."

Either way, Tunisia, a dodgy holiday choice anyway, is completely off the menu now the flight itself has been handed off (to me at any rate) to some second tier 'private' operator.
no difference to the a320 thatís been based for years - second tier......

I wonder if thats the A320 DanAir89 refers to. The "YL-thingy" perhaps.;-)
(Oh, and I've just realised that we'll be flying on one of those YL-thingys next week FUE-BHX.)

Interesting part of Steve Heapy's announcement of Winter 2019/20 expansion was that there is more to come

Jet2 website seems to confirm everything will be on a 737-800. Quick look at FCO / KRK / GRO usual 733 routes and all have 738 maps.
