I did a year earlier on that exact route... although on a 767-200. You were lucky. I remember the news reports with stranded people. I saw it on CNN in America where i was holidaying at the time. Sad days. I liked them too - was nice for there to be 3 big operators in the skies vs. the 2 (well, 1.5) that there are now.

Oh it would be great to gave a British livery - I mean of a British airline... I think people had requested this repaint before but nothing has been painted yet.Maybe PMDG will do a repaint when they launch their B739ER - as Excel/XL had ordered the type...Kimberly Richmond-Jones
