I've noticed on my flight tracker that EAL came to SFB this weekend. Is it new charter service to SFB (daily or just a weekend thing?). Can't wait to see it in person.

European will have two 742s coming into SFB on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from the U.K.

This past Saturday, the green one arrived first, followed by the pink one. Do you live near SFB?

Is this just summer service or are they planning to do this all year?

I don't know much about these flights but maybe able to enlighten you a little more.
The flights are mainly contracted for TravelCity Direct (amongst others), who are UK based and specialise in "Fly Drives" to Florida for british tourists. this is the company that have previously contracted ATA, although those flights arn't happeining this year (hence the EAL flights).
As for the time scale of the service i'm not sure. Florida is an all-year round destination for us brits, so they may continue in the winter although muich lower capacity, perhaps one flight a week. However, saying that, the ATA flights were only summer flights, so the EAl may also be summer only. Have to wait and see!!

Hope this helps (a little!)
