Evening all.

My big mates going to Florida on Friday 17th with First Choice. What will they stuff him into, 757-200 with 17inch seat pitch?

I hear a couple of trans-atlantic flights have been 757 recently due to the hold up with 767s in Abu Dhabi? Bit of a let down for some pax after all the hype about the new 767 cabins.

All of the FCA long haul programme is now operated on the 767-300.
The past 2 weeks G-OOAN has been operating the GLA flights.
Their 767's have a 62J/196Y seating config - 258 seats in total.
Seat pitch will not be an issue.

The last time I noted a 757 on a SFB service was on 03/06 when G-OOOZ operated on the FCA097 to MAN. However, this is also the last time I managed to tie-up one of the FCA transatlantic services so perhaps it/others may have operated some transatlantic services since then.

Good to see a charter carrier at last operating a long haul flight with a sensible seating configuration.
