Some high profile names. Probably cost them as much as the airline is worth to get them onboard. Iím sure Thomas Cook will be just fine

A330-300 MAN

Does anybody know which A330-300 will be operating out of Manchester this summer? They had a HiFly leased for summer 2018, will it be the same again or one of the Scandinavian fleet?

Interesting to see long haul ex GLA after this summer has been axed. Retreat to MAN (and maybe LGW). So much for the new SkyCouch!

Thanks for that - Does MT/TCK/DE no longer have any flights from EXT?

Or have they gone to other 3rd party airlines?

Stansted is showing on the MT timetable for S20. They operate a sizeable operation to Turkey from there which seems to be their bread and butter with daily flights. Does seem a bit odd but itís still very much early days for S20.

Spotted yet another very strange one-off flight last night, G-TCVC operated MAN-SCQ-MAN, at 2000 last night, spent 40 minutes on the ground before returning as MT4821.

It was sent to rescue and recrew G-TCCI that diverted into SCQ on its FRA-VRA trip. Seems to be tech as its still on the ground...

Did that sleeper seat not go down like a lead balloon with ANZ? How does three seats for £200 affect cabin profitibaility and margins on plus premier cabin?!

The Russian Embassy has tweeted that Thomas Cook is to merge with Russian tour operator Globus (which I think is related to S7)

Definitely a misunderstanding of internal business dealings by the Russian embassy, a quote from the FT reads:

ĒThomas Cook said on Friday it would acquire a stake in the tour operating business of Russiaís Biblio Globus through a joint venture with Ionic Invest. The deal will see Thomas Cook spend $3m for a 30 per cent stake in one of the largest tour operators in Russia.Ē
