The 187 seat 757's are fantastic. I had the pleasure of flying CLH YYZ-BHX and CLK BHX-YYZ a few weeks back and let me tell you, what a comfortable aircraft. Leather seating, loads of leg room (and I'm 6'1") great inflight service, just make sure you bring along your pounds and pence for inflight headsets and drinks. Meals were great both ways and the cabin crew were fantastic both ways as well.
As shamrock has noted above, definately a 'civilzed' 757 compared to the 235 config sardine cans. Well done to Canadian Affair and Thomas Cook.

Thanks for that, the 35" pitch sounds great and with leather seating too, these are going to be a great pair of flights!

Quoting GVBIG (Reply 15): Could be worse....could be BA/LH/AF/AA/CO/any scheduled carrier's first/business class with those toffs that think they are better than everyone, when in fact they are just crybabies
I know which one I prefer... even if that does make me a 'snivveling' cry-baby.

Shamrock_747, I know I prefer charter airlines due to the better onboard service given, and the atmosphere onboard charters compared to the likes of BA etc.
Dodgy posh people thinking they are better than the likes of us common folk

The only two that i know of that in 187 config, or at least the two the i have delt with at MAN so far this summer have been G-FCLJ and G-FCLK. I work for SAS on check-in at MAN so let me know when you are flying out. These two aircraft are really nice on-board, the seat pitch is great, you can practically just walk down and seat onto your seat without having to squeeze across the row. The reason the operate on this route is because they have quite a bit of downtime between flights, so it comes in from YYZ, then operates to XRY and back, before hoping over to YYZ again in the late afternoon. They also operate to PMI as well. You will enjoy your flight, i always try and have a nosey on-board before boarding and they look really nice!

: Alternatively you can experience 35-36 inch seat pitch on all AEU's 757's this Summer from LGW to JMK, FNA, VBS, SSH, CLY, DBV, DBB, TFS, OLB, TCP, BI
: I will! Thanks for that Matt, I suppose one other reason is that TCX probably wouldn't be able to fill the "235" configured B752s on the XRY service.
: Well, I guess you got flamed for that (as if you weren't already en fuego ), but still, that is what many carriers have in a 2 class configuration No
: Well Song has 199 on its 757-200 I believe so thats a few more seats
: I have managed to find a pic of the seating. Very nice indeed! Ryanair737
: So far this summer YOW has seen CLK, CLH & CLH in the 187 seat config.
: Had the pleasure of meeting G-FCLH this week for the first time! So its just the three in 187 config, G-FCLH/J/K. Matt
