FIRST CHOISE AIRWAYS IN DUB

Post by doyler » Thu Sep 21, 2006 8:38 pm

Again my family have booked a package holiday with falcon to malaga. The flight is operated by First Choise Airways. i know they operate B-757 and A-320's. I would love to get to go to the cockpit of one of these birds. just wondering if anyone would know any more info on them and if i would be able to get a cockpit visit!!! :D

Hiya,

The flightcrew on First Choice flights are done by Skyservice, a Canadian based company. You won't get to the flightdeck inflight, but ask can you see the cockpit on shutdown and they should let you ;)

They based B757 C-GTBB in Dublin this year.

I flew SNN-ACE-SNN two years ago, on C-GTDH (A320) and they were a FANTASTIC airline. The pilots are Skyservice but the cabin crew are English First Choice crew. The service unparrelled, duty free was dirt cheap. Leather seats too 8) 8)

I asked to see the f/d and got in before and after flight. Didnt chance the jumpseat.
