Excel Airways To Paphos

Mon Nov 10, 2003 3:37 am

Hi all,

I am looking at flying LGW-PFO next September (04) and was wondering if anyone here knew what aircraft XLA operate on the LGW-PFO route, I would guess a 738 but any help appreciated

Whenever I've been down there it has been a 762 (Air Atlanta operated, ex BY bird).
I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...

Could be either

From personal experience the 738s are a bit more comfy. I'm not a big fan of 2-4-2 on UK charter config 762s!
