MyTravel - Are They Flying The First 757?

Mon Mar 14, 2005 5:07 am

I flew on G-RJGR today, and it was ancient, old and tatty inside!

Looked it up, and on planemad.com it shows up as:

cn 22197 / ln 8 - G-RJGR MyTravel Boeing 757-225

which was first delivered to Eastern airlines in December 1982 and went into passenger service on 1-jan-83.

Have I just flown on the very first 757?

sorry, meant to say first in service.....23 years is a long time to operate an a/c at that kind of frequency, it must be in the air 16 hours a day!

The My Travel B757's are generally very reliable, flown on three myself in the past three years, they are old inside but thats what i would expect. I have got the added pleasure of saying ive been on the 5,6,8 th B757-200 in the production line.

In fact the 763s were more unreliable and maintenance heavy than the 757s.

The 757s are not too old but have been worked hard 24 hours a day on those charter runs. Very punishing schedule

I presume its cheaper to keep the older aircraft than the newer so this is why these have left.

Hey SignalOne,

I wonder why aircraft which are 6 - 14 years younger would have already left MyTravel? Does the source for that info tell what kind of "mileage" they had on them when they started with MyTravel?

Well, you would think that the maintenance costs of the old Aircraft would be more wouldn't you?

Maybe they thought, instead of keeping some Old'uns and some New'uns, they will chose one or the other, and kept the old ones. Maybe these have been fully paid for by the Airline?

From what i have seen they have not needed that much maintenance, but at some stage they will go like the DC-10's did in Summer 03 and seem to need some kind of maintenance every other day.

If its cheaper to keep the old aircraft, can they bring back the DC10-10s. I loved them three fatties with the chimney. Very useful for high season high density routes for Palma and winter sorties to the Canary Islands.

Unfortunatly not, they are somewhere in Africa now running a variety of flights and no doubt the up keep wont be as good because the standards do not have to be the same as the CAA.

Do MYT use the 330s on high density European flights or are they reserved for the long hauls?

Since the DC10s left the fleet, I wonder how they cope with the high density routes, like Saturday flights to Palma in August!

You just answered your own question. The A330 is used often for flights to Europe.

I know though that the 330s arent particulalry numerous and are worked hard, primarily on long-hauls.

The DC10s were used on the European runs and so there exit from the fleet has left MYT with little wide-bodied capacity for Europe.

I don't know really, maybe lease a plane for a while? They have probably got something prepared!  Wink

I doubt that with their current fleet, been as the DC-10's and a few 757's have gone, they will have the capacity they had last year, and it will probably affect the amount of holidays they can sell. (Big problem for MyTravel) especially when they are up against Thomson and First Choice!

There has been a A330 operating Palma flights before so maybe we will see that again, obviously there is talk of scaling down MYT Lite so three aircraft there back into the fleet and i cannot see any more B757's going this year because they have just re-sprayed them all but G-WJAN and G-MCEA which are both leaving/left.

They dont have high capacity to pitch against rivals Thomson and First Choice and Tommy Cook though. Those old DC10s were invaluable for the busy runs to the Med.

It will take a full 2 320s to do the job of 1 DC10!

This thread got me thinking, does anybody have a list of the various jetliners from the main manufacturers of the oldest jet still regulary flying passengers or freight aircraft that is not stored or used by the manufacturer, military or as a business jet.
I have the following and I stand by to be corrected on any as I had a quick look through a couple of online production lists, along with the first flight dates.
I know that the A340 and B777 spent a few years with the manufacturer before going into airline service and they might have less hours on them than newer aircraft.
Anybody care to add to or amend the list?

A300 TC-MNA MNG AIRLINES 11-11-1975
A310 N450FE FEDEX 03-04-1982

MYT have stated that their fleet is to be rationalised and the 757s are due to be phased out in the short term. Interiors are not a priority for aircraft due to go back to lessors as the return clause in agreements generally means repairs or facelifts are done immediately before termination.
Lead me not into temptation, I can find my own way there...

How are MyTravel going to cope this summer, winter 2005 and 2006 with the fleet which they have currently got?

MyTravel have got 17 active Aircraft,
First Choice have got 26 active Aircraft,
Britannia have got 33 active Aircraft,
and even Monarch have got 24 active Aircraft.

If you look in the Airtours brochure, they have loads of flights, more than Monarch, and most of them are given the MyTravel aircraft allocation. How are they going to cope with such a short number of aircraft they will have compared to the rest? Remember, they sell loads of holidays, and the brochure isn't any more thinner than last year.

Sure they can get some Aircraft from MyTravel lite and their Denmark fleet, but what about the operations of them airlines? If an aircraft went tech , what would they do?

Cheers, Ryan. I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

I would think that brochures are not always the most accurate things to say which airline is which as the moment, but i would have thought some flights will be operated on other airlines. They have also seemed to have worked the timings of flights so some aircraft can operate 3 flights within 24 hours.

But it is going to be intresting?

Today's history lesson is about G-MONC:

It is a piece of history but it looks like new with the current livery applied.

Hi,

Quoting SignalOne (Reply 37):
How are MyTravel going to cope this summer, winter 2005 and 2006 with the fleet which they have currently got?

MyTravel Airways UK are using 2 A330s from Scandinavia - a -200 for long haul and a -300 for European legs. They are also leasing 4 A320-200s from Skyservice - their Canadian partner.

MyTravel have reduced their timetable from last Summer in accordance to retiring aircraft so they can easily cope and will do so. They have dropped destinations such as Malaga flying from MAN and LGW during the Summer because these routes are so over served now which is good business sense if you ask me. Monarch will fly to AGP from MAN for MyTravel Group.

S05 will be smaller then S04; W05/06 will be on par with W04/05 and S06 will be bigger still.

Quoting SignalOne (Reply 37):
MyTravel have got 17 active Aircraft,
First Choice have got 26 active Aircraft,
Britannia have got 33 active Aircraft,
and even Monarch have got 24 active Aircraft.

Most of Monarch's fleet flies ZB now anyway. Also MyTravel's fleet size puts them in good steed to operate successfully in Winter. If you have seen the mess of Thomas Cook's, Britannia's and First Choice's Winter programme at times you will see what I mean. Even with a sizable Winter fleet, BY have suffered long and major delays in an abundance as have FCA but Thomas Cook have performed terribly - only on Sunday they had a 28 hour delay!
