I agree, the info on Jethros seems to be very generic and not overly accurate. Iím sure it was mentioned on here fairly recently that BYAW will be the next to go (OOBG went to DGX on Tuesday). It has been based at LTN for a while so we will see if it gets WFU next week when the 757 ops there change over to 738 (this is what they did with OOBG at GLA). I guess BYAW will only be withdrawn though if they have found a buyer. At 24 years old, they may be thinking itís best to sell it ASAP before it loses more value.

CPEV is next to go to China as a freighter following OOBG. No final plan for AW to go as yet.

Makes sense as these were the two that were already WFU and then reinstated prior to summer. Any ideas on time frames or if we will see any more leave this winter?

Thanks for the 757 updates chaps - - Incredible back in the day Britannia AW owned almost the whole alphabet on 757-204's G-BYAC - BYAY

plus 3 ex Air Hollands' too G-OAHF/I/K and an Icelandic G-BTEJ all of which were operated from the start of BY 757 ops from around 1990

Just wondered how they (TUI) are left with only one -204, G-BYAW?

G-BYAY (4 years younger than BYAW) is also still with TUI and G-BYAT left around five years ago (looking very sorry for itself). It found a new lease of life and is now operating for La Compagnie flying transatlantic pretty much every day I believe.

When Thomsonfly and First Choice merged to form Thomson Airways, they gradually disposed of all of the older TOM 757 and 733/738s, as well as all of the FCA Airbus fleet and older 757s. The G-OOB* series 757s are younger (especially BC/BD/BE/BF) and so these were retained.

They have two. G-BYAY is still operating as well.

As I recall, Britannia took on an ex-Monarch 757-2T7 during the 1990s. I remember one of their engineers saying it had steel brakes, which the -204s didn't.

aaah BTEJ... I went on that particular 757, always recall the safety card was unique because of the different overwing exits.
and had BTEJ marked all over it.

Yes, 757 BTEJ had 4 overwing exits rather than doors at 3L/R, and was iirc based at GLA?

G-DRJC leased from MON/OM was G-BYAM with BY

G-BYAG was W/off at Gerona

Does anyone know why Nordic 763 SE-RNC is operating tonight’s TFS-ABZ? The SWG aircraft that flew the outbound is currently flying to an unknown destination.

Thankyou, rog747. I couldn't remember if said 757 had been re-registered in the BYA sequence.

Yes, G-BTEJ was TF-FIJ of Icelandair on lease, based at GLA in my schooldays in the summer of 1991. God I feel old....

I can remember they all smelled brand new like a new car - TEJ was left at GLA because FI/ICE had a Station Engineer there IIRC...

Britannia also had around 3 x Air Holland 757's on lease until their own -204's started to be delivered in 1991

All of these 757's that were on lease were fully painted up in Britannia colours.

My pal just went out and back last week LGW to Antalya on a TUI 757 - I was very jealous - He did a very nice video of it taxiing in at AYT with 2 or 3 other TUI 757's all lined up on the ramp there in the warm evening -
Love that noise of the RR E4's when they spool up....sigh

We shall miss them when they are gone as their Mission capability is way and beyond anything else...

There was also G-BXOL which was an odd ball reg in the fleet in the 90ís.
