Waiting for takeoff at MCO this morning, I saw what I thought was another SW 737, but turns out it was a Thomson 737!

Only ever seen them at SFB, and only with 767s (and the occasional 757), never a 737 and not at MCO since they moved to SFB (as Britannia!). Anyone know the story?

Leased to Ryan maybe?

It's operating for Sunwing. Sunwing leases several TUI birds for the bump in winter travel, with half of Canada heading south for much needed warmth. It's very common to see the powder blue 737s here, but they usually don't have the full Thomson titles on the side, just the TUI logo on the winglets.

I was surprised to see the full titles as well. My guess is the winter lease is up and she's heading back to Europe shortly, hence the full colors being put back on.

The aircraft you saw today was C-FLZR, operating SWG30

Cool - thanks for the info guys! I knew they subbed out some aircraft in the winter but made me think about it for a bit when I saw the full colors...and its May.

If it was C-FLZR then I believe it is one of Sunwings 737's which they lease to Thomson for the summer (with Thomson 737's returning the favour during the winter) which I guess must have already been painted in the Thomson livery for the summer season. I believe this aircraft is due to start its lease with Thomson sometime this month.

Quoting Calpe (Reply 5):

C-FLZR is G-FDZR which is Thomson's own aircraft, it has been leased all winter with Thomson titles
There are quite a few Sunwing/Thomson 73H's around, some with C some with G regristrations.
