This "p-something" airline that Englandair is referring to could be Pulkovo Airlines from St.Petersburg. They have an all Tupolev fleet of TU 134 and TU 154. However, I´m not sure if they fly into LHR.

I don't know if it was a one-off but on the 9th of this month there was a Cubana IL62 in at Gatwick.Whether this was a replacement for the AOM DC10 that often operates the Cuba flights I'm not sure. It was somewhat annoying because it was the same aircraft I had seen in Toronto a couple weeks earlier !!
