Excel don't have plans to base an aircraft there through next summer. Excel will base:

London Gatwick: 6x B737-800, 2x B767-200, 1x B757-200 and 1x B767-300
Manchester: 2x B737-800, 1x B767-200 and 3x B757-200
Newcastle: 1x B737-800
Birmigham: 1x B737-800
Glasgow: 1x B757-200

During the winter they will base:

London Gatwick: 3x B737-800, 1x B767-200 and 1x B767-300
Manchester: 1x B737-800

First Choice Air looks will base one aircraft at Cardiff over the busy summer period, but don't get your hopes up, i doubt it'll be anything more than an A320/A321.

Thomas Cook looks as if it will base an aircraft at Cardiff next summer, as i just tried it on their booking, but when i pressed continue it all just disappeared.

MyTravel will probably operate the normal and over the year will probably bring in a B767-300 to fly the SFB route. Britannia, i don't know.

Planned charter basings for S04 at CWL are the same as for S03;

Thomson (Britannia)
First Choice Airways (air2000)

The FCA aircraft will be an A320 (as it was this summer) not an A321, their A321s have a 2-class layout and no CWL flights are being sold as a 2-class product.

TCX have no planned flying with a CWL based aircraft.

MYT will again be the only airline offering CWL-SFB flights.

Believe the BY CWL a/c will be a 757 for most of the summer, with a 762 based for a month or so...
