thanks ThomasCook, I appreciate the info.
They're also still using the 767-300 to some of their flights to Sanford. I thought those were to have been retired by November? No chance those will get the new c/s probably. How about their last DC-10?

What other UK charter airlines are in difficulty? I hadn't heard anythin about this? FCA are very stable, TCM I thought were alright and Excel just had a huge cash injection when Libra sold their stake.
Debate is what you put on de hook when you want to catch de fish.

Hmmm... the A332 looks a bit lardy in the new colours... still, at least MyTravel are getting there in terms of having a single colourscheme!
What's the current situation with regard to the Britannia/Thomson/Thomsonfly TUI group? Are Britannia/Thomsonfly.com going to be merged into the Coventry operation at all?
And ThomasCook, I assume that you meant a net loss of €253m last year for the Thomas Cook group? As Demoose said, is it the German arm that's dragging the whole group down at the moment, or are they still struggling across the board?

Finally!! Well done MyTravel!! Looks weird, like a blown up A320 lol I'll have to see it in person to come to terms with it.
I think Demoose is right, its the German side that's pulling the Thomas Cook group down
Monarch are currently repainting all their aircraft one by one, G-MPCD (A320), G-OJEG (A321), G-DAJB (757) and G-MONJ (757) have currently been repainted. So it shouldn't be too long before the A330's get their turn in the paintshop.

Monarch should not paint those A330's, they look superb in their current livery
Indeed they do. I actualy preferred the colors that Airtours used in the mid-90's, before they did the update on the tail and titles. The good thing about the present MyTravel look is that it's orange, not many jets have that color nowadays, and it's not another boring eurowhite, thank God The livery to me looks better on the 757.
Some UK airlines I think have made a bad choice rebranding. Air 2000 to First Choice, good name but the color scheme.. I don't know, the paint-splatter logo they have.. what the heck does that mean anyways.
Britannia to this TUi-Thomsonfly.com branding is not a pretty sight, and the name, not much better.
