FCA6634 BHX-KRK 29th April - Which Airline + A/c?

FCA6634 (and the return, FCA6635) is a charter flight for the Holocaust Educational Trust's 'Lessons From Auschwitz' project. The flight departs BHX at 07:00 on the 29th April for KRK and arrives back into BHX from KRK the same day at 22:30.

I know the flight number is FCA, but does anybody know what airline (FCA/TOM) will be operating the flight, and will it be a 757 as I expect it to be?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Rgds,
Daniel.

Hi. According to the Airport Information System, both of your flights are going to be operated by a FirstChoice 757. Enjoy your trip!

Yeah that's First Choice. Callsign is "Jetset" I think.

Should be G-OOBE as this aircraft is the FCA aircraft that has been at BHX for months

As an ad-hoc, it's unlikely to be operated on the based aircraft at the time as it's needed for the normal programme of flights out of BHX, more likely to be a MAN or LGW based machine positioned in for the ad-hoc.

Thanks! I wasn't looking forward to a 2h20m flight on a TOM aircraft, knowing how cramped they are. This has just made it better!

Next question; Does anyone know which is best for extra legroom? Emergency Exit Row/Door, or Bulkheads? I've already requested extra leg room, but when I get to check in I'm going to ask for one or the other (unless they've already seated me).

First Choice Airways 757 aircraft along with Monarch and Thomas Cook airlines have exaclty the same seat pitch as Thomsonfly. If anything Thomsonfly will ahve an advantage over the other airlines as their aircraft have slimline Recaro seats fitted.

The best place to be seated for extra leg room is on one of the emergency exit rows as where bulkhead seats give more ''knee space'' there is less space overall comapred to the exit door rows as you cannot stretch out your legs.

As I found out myself when I visited FCA's website - I must admit I was speaking without prior knowledge. But it doesn't matter so much to me as I'll be sitting in an emergency exit row seat, as I've been informed today.

I'll have to make sure I check at check-in where I'm put for the extra leg room. Thanks for the information!
