www.jethros.i12.com may help you on fleets. I've had a quick scan but will look in greater detail later: The FCA 752 to TCX is G-OOOY. The FJE 762 was registered G-FJEC on 12th April.

First Choice is right apart from the B767's; G-OOAN, G-OOBK, G-OOBL and G-OOBM have all been delivered and are in service. There is no set base for them as flights from EMA have positionings and the aircraft swap around. However the general theme of it is 2X MAN and 2X LGW. Taking into account flights to the Maldives and Sri Lanka take an aircraft out of action for two days. Oh and more B757's at LGW

I'm sure I read in the LBA summer schedules, last week when I was in Leeds, that Thomsonfly are having a B752 there all summer, with no mention of a B762 being there this year at all. It was certainly a B752 that I saw, when I was at the aviation academy on Friday 7th April.

Correct. No B767's at HUY on a Sunday afternoon ('W' pattern: LBA-PMI-HUY-PMI-LBA) :(

Well this was during the winter charter schedule, but indeed we are due to have a 757 all summer this year which is a shame as I enjoyed seeing the 767!

Not that they will be based but Thomson will operate a 1 weekly 767-300 from Dublin to Cancun. They also seem to have alot of 757 flights from DUB this year. For the next 2 weeks atleast the VZ/MYT flights are being operated by a 767 rather than the normal A320.

If someone could provide me with a Monarch charter timetable with a/c types i would be very happy. Would love to know what charters the A321 is doing apart from Kos.
