Firstly welcome to the forums :cool: .

As for the aircraft type more than likely the A330-200, although there is aslo a chance is could be the A330-300 or the B767-300. I have travelled on both the A330-200 and the 300 (Manchester - Puerto Plata - Manchester) and they are a very comfy ride.

The A332 I travelled on (OY-VKH) had PTVs (Personal Televisions) in every seat and I think that goes for the rest of the A332 fleet aswell, the toilets are down a set of stairs which is quite a unusual experiance on it's own. You can see a picture of the cabin I took on my flight in the link below:

I've also travelled on the A333 (OY-VKG) and although this didn't have the PTVs it was still a comfy ride.

I couldn't fill you in on that B763 as I've never travelled on it, enjoy your flights though :D.

I flew on the A330-200 (G-MLJL) a few years back to Jamaica and then returned on a 767-300 (G-DIMB, now with MON). Without doubt, the A330 was the far superior aircraft, complete with PTVs and forward and down pointing cameras - great for the takeoff and landing. The cabin on the A330 was clean and looked quite new at the time, but the 767 was a different story. Old and cramped with useless entertainment facilities.

But like all charter flights (except for First Choice long haul), leg room is a real issue.

Of course! how could I forget them, although I could only use them on the flight there and none of the camera's actually worked or came on till we were on final approach to Puerto Plata and that was the nose cam. Dissapointing :( but still a great experiance though.
