I just found on a flight tracker that TSC846 is scheduled for tomorrow, I thought they had dropped Newcastle this year? I looked on the Newcastle timetables and it shows it's operated by a 757, is this the Zoom 757?

This is operated by Thomas Cook. I think you can buy seats via Air Transat but a/c is 757-200 operated by Thomas Cook. I miss the Transat A310!:)

I would have liked to have seen the A310 too.

Do OHY operate an A300 @ Newcastle?
It says that they do on the timetables, although ive heard nothing about it?

Air Transat will be back in Newcastle for summer 2008. Operating 1 x weekly YYZ-NCL-EXT-YYZ using an A310 on behalf of Canadian Affair.

Is that the exact routing...? If so I wouldnt fancy that- NCL-EXT-YYZ- eek what a treck. Or is it YYZ-NCL-EXT-NCL-YYZ ?
You would think NCL could fill an A310 direct. How many other operators fly to Canada from NCL ?

At the moment it's planned as YYZ-NCL-EXT-YYZ (Didn't think A310s could do EXT-YYZ nonstop).
Unfortunatelly GSM seem to be returning to NCL with a weekly YHM flight :(
