Hi Guys,

I have read that Thomson-Fly are coming to Australia, their website say they are but there is nothing in the schedules, it was in the paper some months ago their first flights are coming in November, they were using a 767 from memory with about 2 or 3 stops and flying from Gatwick, are they just special charters with limited dates or is it a summer service. I was just wondering what happening with them ?????

Cheers

Thanks for that info I must not have looked hard enough, they are going to be very long flights, one stop is bad enough on a 744 but 2 stopovers especially when you are going home and the reality sets in that its back to work soon.

-And 7 bucks for headphones each-way, they must be "Gold Plated" at the price !!!!!!!!

required to leave due to fueling? I think you meant required to stay on plane since you said no stop-over allowed

I believe it was meant that you cannot stopover in either Singapore or Abu Dhabi and that you have to fly through to the end destination.

For the most part, I beleive most airlines require you to leave the aircraft during refueling stops. Besides, who wouldn't take the opportunity to get out into the terminal and stretch the legs and maybe top up the gold plating for those headsets in Abu Dhabi???

You have to leave the aircraft in SIN and AUH while it is cleaned and refuelled. You are not allowed to remain on board.

That must be awful - flying on a cramped aircraft, with no PTVs, and with 2 stopovers en route for which you cannot leave the airport complex.

Nightmare!
