To put it clear. Don't think there was any standby cover.The company , which had a difficult decision to make yesterday evening to repatriate an unknown number of volantary passengers back to the UK and organised 10 aircraft. In the end we had more than enough capacity. Today looks like another seven aircraft are going out. This has and will cause knock on delays to the schedule over then next three days.

As Orion23 has confirmed no crew were on standby that operated the relief flight they were all on leave and included some staff who had actually done 2 sectors early Fri am so came straight off rest to work brilliant team effort.

Luckily there does not seem to have been many knock on effect to these relief flights although I hear crewing were quite short for standby duty this morning.

Sundays flights may be a little different though as a little worry that ground agents at NBE will be able to cope with amount of aircraft arriving in short space of time along with normal traffic along with some aircraft on tight turnarounds .

There is also a couple of aircraft swaps two with I believe LTN being changed from 738 to 787 and NCL swapping to 767 for extra capacity

Anyone know anything useful about a B734 G-RAJG. Has world of tui written on it. I know that Thomson has never had a -400. Saw it in AGP today.
Cheers

Yeah I found that on an Internet search and g-info hence the useful information needed. The arkefly is useful.
Knowing that there is some capacity within the tui group why would they go to an outside vip charter company?

Dreamliner delays

I see that there are several heavy delays on Dreamliner flights returning to UK today.
G-TUIE is arriving into NCL over 26 hours late. G-TUIA arriving into Gatwick over 4 hours late. G-TUII arriving into EMA over 2 hours late.
Does anyone know reason for the heavy NCL delay?
Also where is G-TUIB? Not been seen for a few days.

Only one of Cello's fleet is in executive config ( let's not call the occupants VIPs! ). Their bread and butter work is short-notice subs for the like of FlyBE and CityJet.

G-RAJG's default config is high-density and gives them more potential for near-Europe subs. They've also been covering for Monarch recently.
