Thanks AIcreregular,

So now there's only a -300 and a -200 with Travelocity colors right?

Didn't TF-ABA fly with Virgin Atlantic for a while? (can tell by the fact that the "Boeing 747" titles and registration numbers are in Virgin red and in the font that they'd normally use).

According to Airfleets.net, TF-ABA has been with Air Atlanta since 1998 but flew in Virgin colours between Jan 2001 and Jan 2003, flew in Travel City Direct colours for the latter half of 2004 (not Travelocity by the way, that's a different company) before going on what appears to be a short lease to Malaysian at the end of 2004.


Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away...

haha yes my bad, Travel City. I always read it as travelOcity thanks to that red circle between the 2 words painted on the plane Big grin

There was a thread not long ago that said Excel were actually adding their own 747 to the fleet. Any updates on that?

TF-ABA flew NCL-SFB and overnighted at SFB before flying to ORY empty. I guess any returning NCL pax from SFB flew to MAN.
A pic of TF-ABA at NCL can be found here
A 767-200 flew NCL-MAN-POP-NCL registration unknown.
Dont know when the programmed 767-300ERs start to operate these flights.

Are the 767-200s ERs? Just wondering why the NCL-POP flight operated via MAN as I thought that the -200ERs have a longer range than the -300ERs?

I think you've just answered a question for me! I had wondered why the circle (yellow - its a sun) had been removed from their logo both on the website and aircraft. Perhaps that's the reason why?

Does anyone know if it will be the usual 763 on the long-haul routes this week or is a 742 stepping in soon?

On a related note, due to the late delivery of G-OOBL the first FCA Newcastle-Orlando flight is due to be operated by this aircraft;

Because it's the first one of the season and the return leg is empty it operates back to Manchester, so if you want to see it at Newcastle you'll have to catch the outbound!

If you knew G-OOBL was going to be late in 2004 that's very impressive, because the aircraft wasn't taken onto property until April 2005

If that was aimed at me; I've never claimed the conversion programme wasn't running behind schedule, what I have done is rebutt unfounded stories from morons claiming to have inside knowledge. A couple of examples;

Quoting Topjet330:
I have heard from another member of first choice, that G-OOAN will NOT be refurnished, the 7 seat abrest idea has been chopped, and generally the service will not be as good as what is advertised.

Full thread here

Quoting Topjet330:
Having nearly booked a flight with first choice long haul for next year i found out something which put me off, a certain person who is related to first choice shall we say, told me that customers travelling to sanford and one other dest from Manchester would not be on the new aircraft but the old aircraft without the improved seating.

I was told by representatives at first choice that the sanford flight from Manchester would not be operated on a new First choice aircraft, and would not have the new style interior and leg room, all other flights would.

This information can be backed up by the failure of avaiability to upgrade to the premium cabin, which is not avaiable on that particular flight due to there not being one.

I’m not in the habit of lying or embellishing the truth...

Hello,

A321fly is NOT TopJet330 for the final time! Maybe its time for you to stop stalking TopJet330s past posts, for starters, A321fly is located according to his profile in the East Midlands, and he has been updating me on the situation here at EMA.

These "Morons" are not us, as I have never said any information/news based on First Choice Airways, and when A321fly has posted something, if you look back, it has been correct and far from rubbish.

I stick to what I know best, MyTravel.

I am sorry about this A321, but the relationship between Crosswind and TopJet330 should not be brought into the thread when we post. All I can do is laugh at some of TopJet330's posts, as they are rather funny.

If I was bored enough, maybe I could look back and sieve out all the tosh that was posted?
