Malev is the national carrier of Hungary, they only fly within Europe (with the exception of Turkey and worldwide charters such as BKK and HKT). They operate a fleet of 767-200's, 737-800's, 737-700's, 737-600's, F70's and CRJ200's

MA is notorious for changing equipment type on its european flights. Every route has a assigned type but if the load factor doesn´t warrant, MA will send whatever aircraft is closest in capacity to demand. I would say besides the CRJs and B767s, LGW has a good chance of seeing all of MAÿs fleet.

Quoting B742 (Reply 8): Malev is the national carrier of Hungary, they only fly within Europe (with the exception of Turkey and worldwide charters such as BKK and HKT).
They also fly to JFK (daily in summer), YYZ (5/week in summer).
As a winter charter they have Male, Varadero, BKK (sometimes it's also scheduled during the winter time), Punta Cana etc... They code-share with HU on the PEK-BUD-PEK route.
I would think someone who is living in the UK, knows the aviation in Europe...
Quoting Voodoo (Thread starter): What is Malev using to LGW these days? The photo database last shows a Fokker 70 in 2003!
As the others wrote, MA has suspended the LGW service since a while, and they focused on LHR. Than, due to lack of slots in LHR, they started a double-daily service to STN. It wasn't so successful, so they dropped STN and flew to LHR only, again. After BA announced during the winter, that they will terminate the LGW-BUD daily service, MA announced a double-daily (weekdays) service between BUD-LGW, mainly operated with B736. (I have 2 return flights booked with MA from LGW to BUD, and both say it will be a B736 all on the 4 flights...)
There is also a rumor about a BA-MA code-share on the London - Budapest flights...
