It will be a 767-200ER or -300ER. More likely the latter.

Expect decent charter airline stuff - 30" pitch, no PTV, passable food, quite cramped, and family movies played on the overhead screens.
What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

I know that Brittania used to fly a 763 on this route.

Lucky you - Jamaica!  Smile

Anyways, the details......

BY312A LGW/MBJ 4th May - 26th Oct Weekly Tuesdays 0900/1405 767-300

BY312B MBJ/LGW 4th May - 26th Oct Weekly Tuesdays 0635 / 0655+1 767-300

As you can see, a 767-300 is scheduled to operate it.
As for Premium seats, you will be seated in a separate cabin at the front of the aircraft. 2 of the 3 aircraft with Premium seats have seat-back screens, the other one having hand-held DVD players issued on boarding.

By the way, have a goosey gander at the new Britannia website. Very impressive IMHO. http://www.britanniaairways.com You will also find a seating plan on there. Bear in mind that as the Premium cabin is 2-3-2 and most people travel in 2's, there is a small chance that you will not be seated together. Not ideal I know.

If you need any more info let me know. Otherwise, enjoy your flight and have a great holiday!

Mark

Congratulations by the way.

Yes. You still have time to do so, but (surprise surprise) it will cost you a little extra to guarantee it. It's called the "Select Your Seat" service and is £10 per person, in addition to the cost of the Premium seats. I would advise you to click onto the website and get the seat plan in front of you, then to call BY Passenger Services unit on 0870 607 6 757. Tell them that it is your honeymoon - they might give it to you free if you are nice! If not at least they will be able to give you your seat numbers there and then.

You have a better chance of the freebie if you call rather than use the email link via the website, but they don't often "comp" the select your seats, so be prepared! In fact, staff don't get this free either.

The chances of being seperated are fairly small, but Premium is popular, so if you will worry about it, I would probably advise you to use the Select Your Seat service.

Good luck anyway.
