We will have to wait to see what happens I can't see them using 3x A321 all week maybe the odd days

maybe they will be able to use other carriers for odd flights like AEA does the PMI flights for TUI so they aren't using another carrier under the TCX brand

This summer we had a extra A321 on a Sunday as the aircraft came up from Manchester to do the ACE flight before going back to Manchester

As a complete non-aviation industry layman I ask - was that all in one day and one crew?
Is that a 'normal' practice to fill in schedules and aircraft requirements this way?
Ignoring preparation times for the flight deck crew -
MAN-NCL say 1 hour f!ying time
NCL-ACE a good 4 hours
ACE-NCL same again.
NCL-MAN an hour.
All plus turn round times at destinations.
Perhaps someone could give us insight into how all that worked.

We donít. I seem to recall ACE was operated by a relief aircraft a couple of weeks ago due to a tech issue but thatís all Iíve seen.

We definitely donít have any flights this summer operated by non based aircraft. All flights are by NCL based units! The relief aircraft has had to come in from MAN quite a few times to cover delays though.

all. Letís put this one to bed. Nclops you are correct on what you say. Regarding 3 x flights on tue morning, as itís quite early for bookings would expect either 1 - use of other based aircraft on W pattern. 2 - use foreign aircraft i e AEA in Palma, Tunis Air in NBE. 3 - buy seats as needed of other carriers. (Jet 2, TUI, Easyjet) 4- knock 1 of them on the head. Time will tell.

Looks like TC have pulled Bodrum for next summer. Edit: And Reus - not suprised at Bodrum but Reus is always popular with families!

Looks like TC are dropping an aircraft as from what I can see they have dropped Bodrum, Reus, Kos, Menorca and Gran Canaria.

Likely a vicious circle for pax though and the airport to an extent - theyíll book on other carriers i.e Jet2 and TUI. But this just drives up the costs which means itís likely people will travel elsewhere if cost is substantially lower.

Thanks - be interesting to see what impact the removal of the leased NCL-based 320 has, especially if there is more none TCX operated fights, fewer 'W' flights by NCL based a/c and more TCX 'W' flights into NCL.

Beginning of The End Game for TC?

Maybe its the planned beginning of the end for TC and its their way of dropping slowly out of the scene.
Either way, Tunisia, a dodgy holiday choice anyway, is completely off the menu now the flight itself has been handed off (to me at any rate) to some second tier 'private' operator.
