Excel To Larnaca

Tue Apr 19, 2005 5:43 am

Hey everyone, I'm flying on XLA5146 LGW - LCA on 27th July 2005, and returning on XLA5147 on Aug 10th. Anyone know what equipment they usually use on that route? Looked around, but can't seem to find anything...

I did a search for you on XLA5146/5147 and is found some ACARS reports from 2002. Says that both ways it WAS operated by a B737-800, but like i say, that was 3 years ago!

Hope this helps!

Excel started out so promising. Free hot meals on all flights, brand new modern aircraft now they are charging for food and using old 757 and 762s!

They started out with brand old 727s and 732s as Sabre Airways  Smile
