Booked a last minute ticket with Thomson for Manchester to Palma for Monday's early morning departure, down as 787 "Dreamliner" G-TUID,
Sadly fleet "issues" meant a type change on the flight to a 757-200!
Having already booked and paid we decided to go anyway so G-OOBP took us away from MAN just after 06.00 and we arrived at a very wet and dull Palma just after 09.30.
On arrival we headed straight to the ticket desk to get a return flight with Monarch Airlines which was scheduled for departure back to MAN at 12.20.
Having checked in it was back through to departures to await the flight home.
The only aircraft worth photographing in the poor weather was the relatively new Go2Sky 737-400 OM-GTA.
We boarded Monarch's A321 G-OZBP and departed Palma at 12.24, arriving back at MAN at 13.53, With thirteen new numbers in the book it wasn't a complete waste but sad that Thomson let us down with the type change!!
