Nope, it's a 757-200

Thomsonfly aren't flying the route for TCX. Last week, BYAB was just covering for the standard 757-200, which was unavailable for whatever reason. It has now left the Thomsonfly fleet.

Your post was poorly written and was quite hard to understand as a result of that. You may want to proof-read your posts in future.

With regards to your statement, may I ask why Thomsonfly would operate or cover a service on behalf of Thomas Cook? I thought that they were in direct competition, and I cannot see the logic behind any such agreement. Perhaps someone could explain? I did read the last post, but it doesn't really make things any clearer.

Suprisingly enough, it is not uncommon to see charter airlines 'helping out' the competition. In this instance, Thomas Cook were a 757-200 short, and Thomsonfly had a 767-200 sitting spare on the ramp at Manchester. Thomas Cook benefit because they don't have to cancel or delay the flight, Thomsonfly benefit as they make money out of an aircraft that would otherwise be sitting idle.

Looks like it was G-FCLC B752 today (8 Mar) and that last week's use of G-BYAB B762 of TOM on the flight was a one off substitution.

Although I have not seen a report of G-BYAA being removed from service, I can't find any record of it flying since 11 Feb.
Does anyone know for certain whether G-BYAA is still in service with TOM or not?

It is called sub-service and happens often.

Yes i agree this post (that i have quoted) was a bit rude towards me, i was wondering if the aircraft would be the 767-200 of TOM and it was due in 30 minutes after i wrote this topic, therefore i was in a bit of a rush.

Also this flight is in the BHX March 2008 timetable as a 762.
