Is it possible to tell from a TOM flight number whether that particular flight is a scheduled or a charter service?

Do charter flight numbers start with particlar number?

Charter has letters in the Flight Number and Scheduled has a 4 Digit Flight Number with no letters.

Hope this helps!  Smile



An Engineer made a bet that a 747 Gear wouldn't retract in a Hangar. He lost the bet.

Quoting ZBA320 (Reply 1):

If MAN-RAK is a scheduled service, then we can forget that theory as TOM708D arrived today (G-THOG for those interested) instead of TOM2708.

Perhaps it's too much of a generalisation but most of the all digit services appear to have flight duration of 4 hours and above? (Apart for postioning services which are 9xxx)

TOM's MAN-GOI service for example is a charter, and that doesn't gave a letter in the flight number, o don;t think that theory is right either.

TOM xlaim to have over 20 scheduled services from MAN, but to me it looks like they just sell seats on charters.

All Thomsonfly flight numbers are 4 digits, no letters, and it's been like that since they changed the codes from BY to TOM! I'm not sure if this is the case, but it seems that most charter codes start with 2 or 3, and schedules start with 5 or 6!

I don't think there is really much difference between 'charter' and 'scheduled' flights in terms of flight numbers. If anything, if a flight number is used just once a week, then it is a charter, if it is used more than once per week, it's a scheduled flight.
