Charter Flights: LON-ZRH-CMB-MAA?

Fri Nov 08, 2002 10:44 pm

As per different Travel Agents in Switzerland during DEC02, JAN02 and FEB02 there will be a charter operation, most probably with a 747. The first flight will operate on the 19 December 2002 from London to Zurich to Colombo(Sri Lanka) and Madras/Chennai(India)

Does anyone know more about that fact, the operating airline (European?) and other details?

Is this from LGW?

What are the flight times?

I would assume if it is a 747 it's either CC or EAL, EAL I guess

LGW, I don't know from which airport they will operate. I also was thinking of EAL but a guy told me just right now that he heard that it could be a 747-312 so I was thinking about Air Atlanta Icelandic or maybe Corsair. Other airlines operating this type are: Iberia, SAA, Dragon Air & Cameroon Airlines. What do you mean with CC (doesn't have something to do with Macair from Australia, does it?)

Thanks anyway  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Hi Gabriel,
CC is also the two letter code of Air Atlanta Icelandic

Now I remember, I checked in a book and they showed CC as Macair, maybe I'm not very updated with that book  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
