Funny you should ask. I just had lunch with a TNT pilot ( 737 300/400) who told me that they had kept 2 737 QC. They will fly for Thomas Cook and they have been repainted entirely in white!
Hope this answers your question.

Thanks for your answer! In fact they kept only 1 737 Q/C for the coming season to fly for Thomas Cook. This a/c is due to return to lessor by next november, as far as I know. Then, what is it going to happen? Who knows?

The Club Med flights are now operated by SN.
I don't know if TNT had other contracts.
A couple of months ago, someone talked about a B757 combi...

Indeed. The plane is part of a NATO contract as far as I know.

On 6th August 2010, TNT lost it's biggest client: Intermed Travel Group went bankrupt. Best known products were Mediterra and Sunworld. Intermed was at that time n° 3 in Belgium.

Most of the previous Intermed-clients now book and fly Jetair and Thomas Cook.

What about the TNT cabin crew? Do they now work for SN?

I don't think so... I think they were "interim" workers as there were not that much pax flights with TNT

Nope, nobody from TNT was hired by SN. Why do you think that?

I flew TNT a few times and they were always very friendly and around
40-45 so i thought maybe they have been switched to SN.
