Widebodies Into Spain From UK?

Thu Sep 13, 2012 8:20 am

Dear all, am planing a winter break from London (Dec or Jan) to Spain. As part of the holiday I am looking to catch a widebody to get there and will go via anywhere. Looking at AGP / PMI or any Canary Islands. I will do an internet search but if anyone can point me in the right direction. Air Berlin, Aer Lingus, Finnair, Monarch, Thomson ??

Any ideas anyone ? Cheers

EI sometimes send an A330 to AGP & PMI....it's a lucky dip, & may only be a summer thing but good luck!

You can go from LHR via MAD on IB/BA and get a BA 767 there and an IB 346 back - might be expensive but IMO worth it! Both aircraft are scheduled nearly, if not, daily on the Heathrow - Madrid route.

Nothing compares to taking off in an empty 757 with full thrust!

I flew with Thomson last summer on a 767 to Tenerife. Not sure if they are used in the winter, but could be worth a look..

Monarch A300's still operate several routes; e.g. LGW-AGP, MAN-PMI etc afaik

My choice too, I would love to try the IB A340
