About 10 ish years ago i went on a 99 cheapie to Austria, or Ibiza, or possibly Spain. Anyway we flew with Excalibur airlines. It was the nicest charter i've ever been on. In answer to a thread on another forum i have searched the web for any info but can find no trace of the airline. Can anyone remember them. Their corporate colour was a sort of purple.

I am afraid this has been done to death on another forum.

But if you have something new that hasn't been said before..................

JB, thanks for replying, basically we were musing on charter airlines we had flown with and i mentioned this one. Nobody had heard of it , and i wondered what had happened to it. The forum moderator has more or less told me to wind my neck in and you refer to it as "company x". Have i dabbled with dark forces or what ?:confused:

yes B-H I remember Excalibur - seem to remember that they disappeared into what was then the Airtours fleets.

Some nice looking A320's !! Fond memories of special trip to Manchester to take pictures of their first A320.

cheers

Buvenbee,

Nah, don't worry, you haven't upset anything. It's just EXC's demise has been mentioned quite alot and very recently in R&N.

"Company X" became an effectionate term for those of us that had lost our jobs - X company - eXcalibur - get it !!!!??

A fab company, a fantastic workforce, a quality product, great looking brand new A320's and a hell of alot of fun...

As Jet Dragon mentioned, most of the aircraft were then leased by Airtours when EXC collapsed..
