TOM Longhaul From MAN Question

I know airlines can swap and change equipment around to suit their own needs, but I was wondering if anyone would perhaps know which Boeing 767-300's they will have based at MAN this summer. I have booked with Thomson to fly to CUN and was wondering if the ex FCA 767's were more to be found at MAN or LGW. I did a search on the photo's and lot of the MAN aircraft seem to be EX FCA. I believe these outnumber the TOM one's so more chance perhaps of getting on one. Anyone who may be able to shed light and help and eager traveller?

CUN is always scheduled with an ex FCA aircraft with the 2 x 3 x 2 seating as opposed to TOM's 2 x 4 x 2, and with 9 rows of Premier seating as opposed to 5 on the TOM frames.

Subs do occasionally occur, but the de facto config. is FCA.

If you've booked Premier class up front, be sure to reserve seats in the first 5 rows; if you are unlucky to have a sub on to a TOM frame, those booked in rows 6 - 10 will be force downgraded to standard economy.
