LGW - PALMA 17-7-04 MYT433 A330-200 G-OMYT I set off from Swindon at 12am on Friday night for the 6:30am flight we got to Gatwick at 2:20am and checked in by 3am. Once checked in we went through to departures and I went off to the sports bar and watched the planes land and take off, by 4am daylight had broken and I could see all 7 Easyjet a319's on stand a Thomas cook a320 and first choice a/c. By 5am the Thomas cook and monarch Palma flights were calling for passengers to go to departure gate but not our flight. By 6:30 we where at the gate and were boarding our mytravel a330, the plane was big and had the air conditioning on and the ptv's and the TV monitors had the camera under the plane on. We pulled back by 7am and took off at 7:15am due to the plane being late and a technical fault on a Easyjet 737, and a British airways 737 which had to exit the runway and go back to their gate. Once in the air the ptvs went on and we could chose from films - finding nemo, hunted mansion and along came Polly, also we had the moving map and the cameras as well as TV channels and radio. The flight was 1hour and 50 min and was uneventful we flew over Paris and Barcelona and the pilot told us where to look. Overall it was an excellent flight and the crew were excellent the food was good as well. 10/10 Palma - Gatwick 31-7-04 Flight number: MYT434 departure time: 10:50am a330 G-OMYT I flew back to Gatwick on Saturday I left alcudia pins at 8am for a 10:50am flight once we got to Palma airport at 9:05am we got our check in desk numbers and checked in we had 7.25kg extra but they charged us only 5kg which was £22. Then we went upstairs had some food and then went through to departures when we got through the flight came up as delayed and we had to wait until 11:30am. We went to the gate 47.R and caught a bus, racing a Britannia 767 for Birmingham and then we turned and we went passed a a300 monarch, 9 mytravel a320's and past another 3 a330 mytravel Scandinavia. once we got to the plane we boarded and waited and waited for the last passengers economy was full except for row 9 which are extra legroom seats and premium gold had 8 people in it. Just before they shut the aircraft doors some more passengers came on but their seats where taken and it turns out they where on the wrong flight but on the mytravel flight to Glasgow. Then we headed for the runway waiting behind a myt a320, a330 and a air nostrum dash8, we departed at 12:15pm and headed over the bay of Palma past mytravel cruise ships SUNBIRD which I was on 2 weeks before and Carousel which have now been sold to Louis cruises and leased to Thomson cruises for 6 years. Then we flew over Barcelona and the Pyrenees and had lunch of cottage pie and double chocolate pudding the ptvs where not working on this flight and don’t think it was on the Toronto - Gatwick flight hours before the flight went without any problems or turbulence. The downstairs toilets are good with comphy couches to sit on while waiting for the toilet although be careful when going to them as I and other passengers did not find the step below as the got smaller and fell down them on our bums. When duty free was served I got a a330 mytravel model for £10 and then it was time to land as we where turning over isle of Wight and then 15 min later landed at Gatwick. When we landed a B747 virgin Atlantic took off and then a 767 delta while taxing we passed a 747-travel city direct 747-phuket air and a 767 Britannia. We landed at 2:04pm. Overall: 10/10 cleanliness 8/10 on time, we where delayed going out and delayed coming back 10/10 crews where brilliant 10/10 overall mytravel were brilliant cannot fault them.

The thing that I dont get is why this report has been suddenly posted again, about 7 months after the flight?

Hmmm, it was a nice read, but no paragraphs, and bad punctuation and grammer made it very hard to read. I had to go back lots and got lost a few times, Sam
