The Prague based operator has ordered a single 787-8 and taken an additional Purchase Right
SEATTLE, March 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA - News) today announced that Travel Service, a Prague-based charter carrier, ordered one Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, and holds purchase rights for one more. The airline is increasing its efficiency in the long-haul charter market by offering direct flights to holiday destinations. The order is valued at $153 million at list prices.
This is a new order and total 787 sales now stand at 491. They have a fleet of 10 x 737s of which 8 are 738s and this order follows on from an agreement for 2 x 739ER in 2006

I'm sure they'll take the option too soon.
|Quoting Aleksandar (Reply 2):|
because Travel Service already uses their 738s for some longer flights
|Quoting EI321 (Reply 5):
they should buy a few second hand 767s first.
|Quoting EI321 (Reply 5):
One aircraft airlines tend not to last very long, they should buy a few second hand 767s first.

Er, whats the point on buying one aircraft! One aircraft airlines tend not to last very long, they should buy a few second hand 767s first.

They've been around for more than a decade and have already 5 or so 738s. Despite their horrible customer service they are generating quite decent profit. To be fair, their management sure knows how to make money and is able to find all kinds of "strange" contracts, e.g. they've been wet leasing the 738s to Brazil, Malaysia. Some of their aircraft almost regularly spend winter flying for Oman Air, etc...
