There is a 4 in 6 chance of a refurb plane. 2 are currently being refitted - one went September the other has only just gone.

This will leave one to be done and VTOp who is leaving the fleet early next year.

There are now 5 refurbs back o you have a 5 in 7 chance, we flew on the 3rd on a non refurb "ruby Tuesday" and it was a lot better than I anticipated, all IFE worked (though not on demand) seats in pretty good condition and good crew

Is there the same chance of a refurbished plane when flying from Manchester or is it a different fleet? We're on VS073 on Saturday and I hope it's refurbished!

The same fleet serves LGW and MAN so the chances are the same

Ruby Tuesday and Virginia Plain. Ruby Tuesday is going to be but Virginia Plain isn't - she is leaving the fleet early next year and until then you still have the chance of a non-refurb.

Thanks for that! I'm checking in online this afternoon, I doubt that will tell me the plane name but I will have a look. If not I will find out at 11am at the airport tomorrow! X

You will not find out which plane until you get to the gate as it is not released for security reasons.

You will find out the config at online check in - refurbs have both PE & E in the bubble

I looked at my booking and can change my seats on flight home but can't see anything for flight there so it might be a refurbed plane well hope so. not worried so much on the way back as kids will probably be sleeping on way home
