erm, isn't that the one they've just acquired from Singapore Airlines, needs to have the interior reconfigured etc before going into service? As Singapore want their premium cabin stuff back.

Do you have a source for that? Because it doesnít. Neither Mode-S elementary or enhanced surveillance provide a downlink of the destination or route.

I have a flight booked to NY in November, booked through TC but operated by Air Tanker, I assume this will still get binned should the worst happen?

Sorry, donít wish to be insensitive, Iíve been made redundant myself in the past due to poor management so I do feel for everyone involved. I know Iíll get my money back on my credit card so itís not a big deal for me.

Just curious

Makes sense that Malaysian and Qatar have got spare aircraft available for charter.

Anyone know what sort of spare capacity BA and EasyJet will have in terms of charter?

I’m not speculating anything but has anyone any idea what the 3 x 763 Eastern aircraft are doing in Shannon other than rescue flights for Thomas Cook. 2 one the ground and 1 en route as we speak, all 3 from Miami.

Most likely the CAA getting ready in case the negotiations fail. They did the same in 2016 when Monarch’s ATOL renewal was pushed to the line. It was slightly worrying to land in Palma de Mallorca to be greeted by a United B747 in case the ATOL license wasn’t renewed.

fortunately in 2016 all the aircraft flew back without having been put into action, at a great cost to the CAA. Lets hope that the same happens again this time round!

Iíve been in Shannon before when 767s have called in enroute to the Middle East carrying US troops.

so nice to see, hope all turns out well.

sorry was ment to be a Facebook video, of a plane loads of passengers landing back in the UK on a Thomas Cook flight, all shouting we love Thomas cook, apparently crew in tears as passengers disembarked hugging crew members.

From Airlines . Net

The UK Civil Aviation Authority is on high alert to rescue Thomas Cook customers if the tour operator cannot be saved from collapse within 24 hours.

The CAA has held detailed conversations with a group of five airlines to rescue passengers, which includes:
  • British Airways
  • Virgin Atlantic
  • easyJet
  • German travel operator Tui
  • Jet2
Thomas Cook Group is meeting its biggest shareholder and creditors since 9am in last-ditch talks to avoid collapse.

I don’t see how this is going to help other than fill spare seats on existing flights.

I believe Monarch picked up the tab for that 2016 contingency.

HiFly have been operating an ex-Singapore A380 for a while now, complete with former SQ interior. I donít believe Singapore Airlines want their cabin back. A few of their ex planes fly with these sort of airlines with the old cabins.

To be honest Rushed Approach, I have no idea if the bill was picked up by MON or not.

Doc Q, why do you have to resort to insults? The only one calling other posters a moron or pr*ck is you. It fair enough that you don’t agree with their opinion but does it really warrant calling people names on an anonymous forum?

If you really want to be such a ‘Big Boy’ then call people morons or pr*cks whilst posting under your real name!
