Hi all. Looking to book our holiday to Orlando for may 2022 I know the 747 400 have now all retired which I’m so sad about been to Florida now 10 times on those beautiful planes, what aircraft are we likely to fly on please.

It's generally either going to be the A330-300's from LHR or the A330-200's from MAN but as with all routes the A/C type is always subject to change.

There should be at least 3 of the leisure A350s in by then, so I think it will most likely be A350. The A330-200s will probably be retired by March.

Probably the leisure A350s. They should be starting to fly to Orlando from early next year.

VS109 is also showing up as A332 for April at the moment. As far as I know, the A332 leases are scheduled to end between January and March (if they are even kept that long).
