If Air 2000 ditched their 330's on order for the 763 why do they still have one 332 on order? Wouldn't it make more sense to go for the 764?

Are JMC going forward as rumored for the A332 as a DC10 replacement?

The Air 2000 A330 order is indefinately deferred, just like TWA and Northwest's A330 orders (ie don't expect to ever see them delivered!) One aircraft was cancelled, probably offset by their order for 8 A320/321s late last year.

Can't tell you anything about JMC. Long-Haul flights for 2001 are scheduled to be operated by B767, could just be a stop gap until the A330-200/B767-400ERX is available.

The B767-400ER is of no interest to UK charter companies, not enough range. Expect Air 2000, Britannia and possibly JMC to be B767-400ERX customers.

Air 2000 doesn't have any A332 on order, at least, not according to Airbus.

Airbus didn't list the TWA A330 order on their website either, but that was indefinately postponed and then cancelled. AMM inherited orders for 2 A330-223s from LEI for delivery in Feb/Mar 2000. Both were postponed, one order was subsequently cancelled. It is highly unlikely the airline will operate a single A330, but technically they still have one A330 on order, but with no delivery date set.

From the horses mouth ..so to speak!!!!!!!

Terry Soult has just released information that they are to recommend A330-200's to be leased, and will not be available until Nov 2001. The DC-10 (one of them) will fly a limited summer program and will provide back up aircraft. They are also recommending that for the summer 2001 they damp lease a B767-300 to cover long haul commitments which would otherwise be unprofitable.

The A330-200's will have Rolls Royce engines.

happy flying

Thanks for the confirmation JMC777.
I already knew JMC's Summer 2001 capacity had been scheduled to be operated by Boeing 767s, but didn't know that a DC-10 would also be retained. The DC-10 will be G-LYON, as G-GOKT was recently listed as available for lease from May 2001 on the GECAS website.

Interesting JMC has chosen the A330. The future of their Airbus ops looked far from certain since the evaluation of the B737-800 to replace the A320s back in the days when co-operation with Hapag Lloyd was in the cards. Now it looks like the Airbuses have a long term future at JMC alongside the 757.

Took me a couple of seconds to work out which airline you were refering to there, Terry Slout used to work for Air 2K before he left with Mr Cossey to form Flying Colours  

Looks like Air 2K/Britannia are the "freaks" amoung the major UK charter airlines for not ordering RR powered A330-200s, although both JMC and Britannia are offenders in the "not operating the A321" category!
