Please don't flame me about for asking this question as I don't know a great deal about TCX and their fleet.
The airline seems to be quite dramatically reducing their fleet and regularly reading how aircraft are being transferred to other airlines...
I have just read in anther thread TCX are switching an A320 to MyTravel and in Airliner World magazine this month it shows two 752's going to a new Mexican airline called Aladia. I have also read how Monarch have taken one or two A320's and First Choice Airlines have acquired a couple of 752's.
Also a few A320's were switched to Thomas Cook Airlines in Belguim a year or two ago.
I have read the Thomas Cook the tour operator has faired quite well compaired to other tour operators like First Choice and My Travel, and don't understand the huge reduction in their fleet. Airlines like ThomsonFly and Monarch have grown their fleets in recent years.
How does TCX's fleet compare today to how it was 2-3 years ago?
