I too would like to know more about Orange Air. Are they involved in charter/IT work? Would love to see one of their 742s at Manchester doing the winter flights to Tenerife for the cheaper tour operators. Imagine the delays!

Ahhh Peach Air. I am told though that their service was excellent on board. Crewing was done by Caledonian and Sabre on the L-1011 and 732 respectively. I remember writing to Caledonian back then to ask why they named it Peach Air. They said in their reply that after restructuring, they decided to refocus their Caledonian brand on the long haul and high bracket markets, and came up with a brand both family friendly, easy to remember and warm, and so the Peach was born! I've always been confused though as to why they had a separate code ( KGC instead of CKT). I also asked that, and was told that the code had no connection to their relationship with the seat broker, Goldcrest, but was all that was available at the time that wasn't a numerical code (eg 7G). Shame they went. I miss those airlines operating proper old interesting aircraft. I suppose economics override sentiment in business!
British Caledonian...we never forget, you have a choice
