Don't they sometimes use the A320. I think it would depend on how many pax have booked this particular flight. I think this is how First Choice works.

Definately a 757-200. I went to PFO twice last year with FCA. You should have gone on the weds morning flight, that was an A320-200 last year!

Having said that, ACARS is showing a 752 on the FCA2730/1 as well so probably not! They did operate the PFO flights with 767's a few times last year but I think that it was for technical issues rather than increase passenger numbers as it was on an ad-hoc basis. Have a great time and a couple of Keo's for us all.
