If anyone happens to be around from St. Athan (Wales), you might be aware that Transavia is getting its planes converted there to winglets. Here is the schedule as it stands now. Please note that dep means departure from AMS, and as such ARRIVAL at DGX. PH-HZB 31/10/05 dep PH-HZV 7/11/05 dep PH-HZB 8/11/05 arr * PH-HZJ 10/11/05 dep PH-HZL 11/11/05 dep PH-HZV 11/11/05 arr * PH-HZL 14/11/05 arr PH-XRV 16/11/05 dep PH-HZJ 17/11/05 arr PH-HZG 19/11/05 dep PH-HZY 20/11/05 dep PH-XRV 20/11/05 arr PH-HZY 23/11/05 arr PH-HZN 25/11/05 dep PH-HZG 26/11/05 arr PH-XRD 28/11/05 dep PH-HZN 29/11/05 arr PH-HZX 29/11/05 dep PH-HZX 2/12/05 arr PH-XRD 3/12/05 arr * PH-HZB and PH-HZV will be leased out to Sun Country 5 days after the conversion. Therefor it is likely that they will carry their livery or, at least, titles. The new livery is now expected to be revealed the 7th of december so chances are PH-XRD and PH-HZX will have the new livery. All I know at the moment is that the livery will be/has been designed by Landor.

I presume the work is being done by Qinetiq (the privatised DERA) at their rather large facility?

According to the post at the scramble forum I got this info from: "The conversion of winglets will be done by ATC Lasham Ltd. at St. Athan (Wales) = DGX, a former RAF base."
