There was a group of 733 in Ansett colours, including G-CELY, parked at BOH for several months in 2002 I believe.

Flew on this bird from Sydney to Cairns in November 1996. Never got the chance to travel again as LY - Oh happy days. Who would of thought then, that she'd end up as scrap in Kemble !

To save on costs all the leases from Air Europa, Titan Airways, Smart Lynx, Hi Fly & Air Tanker have been cancelled. Hence the A332's going back to RAF Brize Norton.

A pretty obvious move really.

There may have been large penalties for doing this, so they must be fairly sure they wont need them for the rest of the summer - which is probably a reasonable assumption at this stage. Have they brought resort staff home too? I guess restoring their resort teams would take time too - at best they would be able to sell holidays for July/August at this stage. Even that seems very optimistic.

Interesting question, Brian. As one due to holiday Jet2 to Turkey in just 7 weeks, I wonder how close to May 12th we'll get before we know if we Go or No?
Its really for the SLF Board but thought it might get answered here.

Have you seen the steps they are taking, right down to spraying the streets, closing bars etc? Bet more being done there than here.
Their virus numbers are increasing fast and they are way behind the curve now.

Iím sure there would be Force Majeure clauses in the leases. Having nowhere to fly to would probably fulfill that clause.
