You will find some reviews here. The reviews are mixed, but then again the same could be said of reviews on Orlando flights with VS.

If i remember TCD were using some Excele 767's across to Orlando this winter.
From what I have read, the offer 32" legroom and leather seats in economy on their own branded 743's, (flown by Air Atlanta).
Their reliability from what ive heard, seen, read etc. however has been rathe poor, but the 743's have since rpelaed the 742's and reliability has improved considerably.
I have also heard that customer service from TCD is a little stale, and to prey for things to not go wrong.

Kev.

(I also have the memory of watching a dirty air atlanta 742 operatign to TCD push back at Gatwick, making an unusual sound, then returnign to the stand and unloading everyone...)

that will improve the airlines saftey by miles, and hopefully make them break away from air atlanta

well, check out "justplanes"; both a/c will be operated in the EXCEL AVIATION Group...
Lets see, if they stick with the 4-class-concept or change it...

BTW. I was always thinking, that Travel City was offering also only-flight-deals- but couldn't find nothing! So is it possible to book flight-only?
