Hi All,

I haven't heard much chatter about FlyGlobespan in a while, so I'm just wondering how they're doing. Does the fact that there hasn't been much about them on this site mean that complaints have dropped, their LFs have increased, etc.? Has their reliability improved?

Thanks!

They are one of a very few airlines who are in profit at the moment  Wink

They have gone back to basics (nearly) and are improving dramatically. Gone are the 733s and 736s, and soon the 767, which will leave them with a fleet of 73G,738 and 763 a.c, 2 767s currently being leased out.

Now all they have to do is drop their flying programmes from LGW, MAN, DUB and BFS and everything will be fine  Wink

Are you being a little premature.

So, are they primarily sticking to the short-haul routes now?

Well, they will take more B767's... And how they will serve Canada without B767's- o.k. except Halifax-Glasgow (I guess B738?). Are you sure you didn't mean the B757 (G-CEJM)?!

Nope, forget it! airfleets.net is not accurate enough- the real fleet details you will find on:

Whoops, I meant the 757  Wink

Nope, currently they have 2 x B73G and 5 x B738,1 x 757 (lease ends shortly), 3 x 763 with 1 x 763 (all economy) arriving soon.

They also still have 2 x B787s on order.

The B733s and B736s have either ended their lease/been sold on. The 736s are now in Egypt I believe

Why was it that the 757 they had and utilized for transatlantic crossings so prone to problems? Was it just a bad luck of the draw, or was the maintenance of the plane not great?

They blamed Icelandair maintenance.

Most, if not all, of GSM's maintenance is now done by Monarch Engineering

Debonair

Thanks for the update.

As you say, Airfleets does have it 's limits although it does seem to be getting better.
