Does anybody know whether the RAF still operates this flight with its Tristars and if so how many times does it operate?
Cheers,D10

It would seem so. They last updated timetable/fares as of 1st April 2003; and the Falklands Islands Tourist Board quotes departures until February 2004...

During the US attack on Iraq the RAF Tristars had been requisitioned Air Luxor of Portugal were operating their Tristar 500s from Brize to Mount Pleasant for the RAF.

I just checked the BBZ-MPN flights a few days ago and they are still loaded in the CRS.

Another option to go to MPN would be Lan with a weekly/twice weekly service from SCL with two stops to MPN.
