Re: Passenger dies after leaving easyJet flight at LGW

Thought this was worthy of its own thread, BBC are reporting that a passenger with reduced mobility has died after deboarding. It’s been claimed that this was not due to staff shortages but it’s come to light that the gentleman decided not to wait any longer for ground staff. https://www.bbc.co.uk/...

Re: European Widebody Flights ??

Unfortunately a lot of the TUI 767/787 flights are Charters, which aren't always bookable

On a related note, does anyone happen to know if Condor are flying the 767-300 on European routes this summer? Many of the usual routes are now operated by the A330s.
