You will be flying with Thomsonfly (or maybe First choice). The two companies have now merged and will be rebranded Thomson Airways as of the 1st May 2009. The contract went back to Thomsonfly this year and are using the 767-300.

Fred Olsen are using Titan Airways for their European flights; I'm not sure about long haul. Thank goodness F.O. have terminated their contract with Monarch. I flew home from Miami after cruising on Balmoral earlier this year and Monarch were truly awful. A six hour delay and minimal facilities at Miami airport. A dismal end to a great cruise.

Lets hope they are not still using Monarch for long haul. Hopefully someone on here will be able to verify which airline they are now using out of Miami. Thanks for responses.

I hope this is correct for I had an awful flight to Capetown with them last year. We landed at Accra, Ghana for a fuel stop and were delayed for more than 17 hours. There was no fuel available there so the passengers were dropped off at the airport whilst the aircrft flew to Lagos to refuel. The service by the airline staff was pathetic.

I telephoned FO and asked which airline - told me that it would be Thomsonfly. Received some paperwork a couple of days ago for Caribbean, January 2009, and although we still don't have times of flights, it does say that the carrier is Thomson.
