This is a very interesting thread, thanks for posting. Never knew PA had A310's in europe or F100's on order! I flew a Pan Am A310 (not sure which series) on the 30th August 1988, MCO-MIA. which has always been a bit odd for me flying such a short route on a widebody, but i do remember it (i was 8 a...Jump to post
Luton has a high Indian population, which is why most people fly on Turkmenistan via Ashkhabad to Amritsar - its been the bread and butter for the airline for many years, They lost the LHR slots, but LTN will be just about as close to the target passenger group as any (instead of driving round the M...Jump to post
Sad times to see another UK AOC be handed back. Aircraft were on lease to HOP! (RJ100) and B737 flew TUI charters ex DUB.
Aircraft are already sent to storage in St Athen.
Thanks for the replies, I thought this was a dead topic. I'm in the process of setting up a Facebook page, where you can purchase 4 hour blocks, with lower rates for longer times, custom schedules eg- if you want to go to FAB it's X cost and LTN y cost etc... I figure as well for ground up to 4 it's...Jump to post
It was a charter for a private client
There will be a return just after Xmas fromSTN on the 744.

guys - Monarch flights and seats are sold by First Aviation, at the end of SEPT the ATOL is due for renewal and that means a new bond is needed, that bond would be for more than GBP 5m.

Thanks all for your help, i tried the 100-400 but that was a bit slow to focus - so i sold it. But i think you could be right about the lens,so i'll have a look with other options and see if that helps. Im shooting with apperture at 5.6 - 6.3, so will widen it out to 8.0 and see if that helps. final...Jump to post
Hi Just changed up from an older Cannon 600D to a 5D mkIII.

There are only 2 flights showing in the KLM system Dan, so not sure where the 4 flight per day figure comes from. The demand does exist in Kent, but it needs a price point that will stimulate travel.

It seems many people on here are not familiar with the "old 757's in Euro-Charter Airlines. The basic config on a B757 was 235Y, and latterly 229Y.
