In the 757 of course. Looks as though it will be a pretty foggy morning at LGW
though, with light easterlies so 08R in use. Clearing up later but it will be dark by 17:55 of course...
Whilst Hapag do have the 737NG, Corsair operate the A330-200 already!! Granted HLF fly far more 737s than Corsair's two A330s. It's hard to tell, from a personal basis I would prefer the Boeing option (752/764 or 737/764) but the general consensus is that the Airbus proposal is the favourite to win the contract. Having a fleet of aircraft on which all
pilots are qualified is just such a big selling point. There are also concerns about the 767-400 range capability for Germany to Cancun flights. With the jetstream in winter it just simply wouldn't make it non-stop sometimes, and that gets expensive.
Time will tell I guess...
I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...
