Very sobering really - they were either off to war or on their way back. Either way, rather them than me.

As for CWLCY being sold, I doubt it. The plan was always that if the route didn't succeed, the aircraft would end up on domestic routes (hence why they have no sophisticated in-built IFE setup, and blanked emergency exits). I am sure there is a good reason for the moving of the AOC and it probably involves an airport a bit around the M25.
