Hi all,

I'm booked to fly MAN to Male on 5th Dec.

Originally the flight code was FCA 116 returning on FCA 117. It's now changed to TOM 117 and TOM 118. The times are the same.

I know they've merged but I thought the airline side of things was being rebranded until 2009.

I prefer the FCA long haul config and service on-board to the TOM long haul and paid for the premium cabin upgrade (Star Class Premier), so hopefully it's a FCA 767 operating with a TOM code. Is there anyway of finding this out?

Th easy way is
IS it TOM or is it ToM for the flight number.

If it is all capitals then it is a ThomsonFly aircraft. If it is little "o" then it is a FCA aircraft.
Not sure how the cabin service will be though but the aircraft will not be reconfigured yet./
Also the BHX operation will now be a ToM flight programme so will be operated by a FCA aircraft, not sure how about the crewing.

Quoting Rdwootty (Reply 1):

Thanks Rdwootty. It's ToM.

If anyone else knows whether the cabin service is still Star Class Premier or the Thomsonfly service I'd appreciate that info.
