Thanks. I'm guessing 3 are 787s?

Yes. 2 for long haul (1 B788 and 1 B789) and a B788 for short haul. Not sure if there will still be a B767 or 2 by then either?

I have never come across anyone who has booked their holiday so far in advance, the longest length of time that I have booked before travel was two months, and the shortest was within 24 hours of departure and I've done a couple of those :-)

I agree Canberra....thats what you call forward planning ..but often the best price..Disappointing to see re the 767 though, I thought all the old coal burners had disappeared from the Uk fleet..

But then again personally I never take package Holidays myself so there's no need to book so far in advance :-)

From now till September 2019 I could well have undertaken several trips away for all sorts of durations.

Which happens to be the exact number of aircraft that were based this morning.

Slight disappointment, I had hoped to see them back to daily over the winter. Perhaps it's needed to start DEL?

The 330-200's will be off line for cabin refits, as by all accounts they are rubbish!

Anyone know what G-ZAPX was doing at MAN earlier? Left mid afternoon to somewhere in France I think under a Titan callsign.

Hi Spanners - that's tentatively good news if they intend to put the cabin right. The A332 should help open up at MAN parts of the LHR network for longer periods (e.g. SFO, LAX, DEL, JNB) should they wish to do so.

Does that compare with 8 or 7 based for this summer? May mean something or nothing but BOS & SEA still not showing on the TCX web site for bookings in 2019 although the other US flights are. Hopefully they are still to be loaded.

It’s 7 based this summer. BOS and SEA will be added soon, it’s mainly the ‘holiday long haul’ that’s been added so far.

Thanks LAX_LHR.

7 to 8.5 then for the A330's. Good stuff.

Indeed.

The online timetable for MAN is far from complete. JFK has been a huge success for MT so no way that will be just 6 weekly either. I suppose it will all be added in once the new routes and new A330 have been factored in.
