Reported elsewhere that TCX will now be leasing 3 Air Transat A330 this winter , not sure what the implications will be for Air Tanker leases ?

Are the TS A330 going to be subleased to Condor again though, like the one they had last winter? That was operated by MT on behalf of Condor.

Just looked at Jethros, Thomas Cook will have 11 A330 this summer! That’s quite a lot of capacity.

G-MDBD/CHTZ/OMYT/MLJL/TCXB/TCXC/VYGK/VYGM
OY-VKF/VKG
EI-FSP (ex CS-TMT)

only 8-9 do long haul overall, so means 2 for short haul.

What are the configs of the leased ones?

I know from a previous post VKG and VYGK are all economy. Do the VK 332’s have a premium cabin? I assume VYGM will be all economy like GK. I suppose for short haul it really makes no difference but the lack of consistency of product still worries me I have to say.

From Air Tanker's Website, both are all economy seating configs. GK has 320 and GM has 311.
Compared to Jet2's GL at 327, why wouldn't the configs be identical? i though both companies used the same Acro seats?

Hi everyone,

does anyone have some information about Thomas Cook Aviation (Air Berlin Aeronautics / Aviation) ?

They are at the moment looking for Direct Entry FO for DUS and LEJ.

But its quite hard to find some information about T&C, Rooster, Assessment and so on.

Thanks a lot already.

DV has (I'm assure you're aware) and KO came back from Zagreb recently. Not sure why but I would assume a C-Check but as far as i'm aware nothing as changed.

Big delays at Stansted yesterday and today I heard Mahon cancelled and one of today’s flights delayed until tomorrow not sure of destinations so maybe that’s why your seeing a lot so shuffling about of aircraft.

Not much better at Manchester and BHX today.

I am sure on paper the numbers stack up when using third parties before the season starts but in reality how does a day like today (and yesterday and potentially tomorrow) eat into those figures?

BHX will run into the third day of disruption with Girona today operating out and into East Midlands (15 hors late) today but I suppose it is better than a complete lost day of your holiday which happened on BHX -AYT (Thursday) which went this afternoon and BHX - HER due out today but now 10am tomorrow (instead of lunchtime today).

LY-VEC is the Manchester aircraft tech and LY-NVZ at BHX.

These guys know their contracts rely on on time performance and TC also plan to have spare capacity to mitigate AOG's. They will also bring in any aircraft that are around for charter e.g. Titan.
The problem with a flight to the Greek Islands and back is the crew will unlikely have the hours to fly into BHX then to Greece and back so you need notice to organise aircraft and crew.
As you head into the weekend the chances of this happening become less and less.
The only consolation is that a charter airline will eventually get you there. If it was a loco the flight would be cancelled and the punters left to their own accords.
