TUIH operated BY193 and is now on its way back down to LGW. TUIJ has been sitting at MAN for 38 hours.

Furthermore, LGW's s/h TUID operated l/h from LGW yesterday and MAN today. MAN's s/h TUIC has gone down to LGW to cover the s/h schedule there.

TUIA also took a 5 hour tech delay on the NCL-SFB yesterday. TUIJ has just landed in NCL, positioning in to operate the TOM524 NCL-CUN.

Quite a few unfortunate tech issues which couldnít be foreseen. An engineering pal tells me they required a tyre change down route in NAP highlighting the importance of FOD checks at airfields.

Having monitored the operations since Saturdays pains at BHX what is interesting is that TOM cannot cancel any flights due to the nature of their business. So it takes them a few days to catchup when taking in to account crew hours and aircraft all running behind.

Scheduled airlines can cancel to give them some slack in the programme and customers just have to claim or rebook.

Basically the TOM operation has looked a bit messy lately but it appears to have been compounded by the issues on Saturday along with recent issues across Europe. Some longer sector times against the average so I assume some flight planning changes - maybe strikes somewhere.

Have all their B789s now arrived for the year? -L and -M both arrived this year. Anyone know when their first Max arrives and how many will be in place by next summer?

Yes it did, apologies I was meaning to say TUIJ TUID did the Orlando run yesterday is it still in shorthaul layout as I wouldnt want to do a 10 hr flight if it was especially if I had paid premium.

TUI's economy isn't like the 767's and is a decent offering. Yes it's an inconvenience if you had paid for Premium, but you'll get your money back. I'd rather a short delay and get on my holiday sat in Economy than a 12-24+hr delay awaiting an aircraft that has a premium cabin.
I would think given the extra amount of seats, a certain amount of space would be made available at the front so everyone isn't crammed in. with the odd seats free dotted around the cabin.

yeah its ok up front if you are on a window as there will be a spare seat. Its more leg room Im thinking about 6ft 4` and paying premium for the leg room only to find it not there and having to sit 11hrs to Peurto Vallarta in SH configuration is not really my idea of fun. Have flown the 787 before and had "extra space" seats at the back which were ok I guess but anything less is not going to be fun. I agree btw I would rather get away on time but wouldnt enjoy it.

PH-OYI is currently on route GLA-LTN, initially I assumed it had been helping out to get the schedule back on track but it seems it operated GLA-EWR yesterday, was this a charter? And is it going to LTN for a similar reason?

TUIB flew sown from MAN and was replaced by TUIJ from Newcastle this morning meaning a 1hr 50min delay on the TOM194 departure to Peurto Vallatra. Its the first time since the start of the summer scheadule that this has happened. Interesting as we are on that route next week. TUIA repositioned to GLA and is operating todays CUN as TOM784

I see that G-OBYF has swapped with G-OBYH and is now in Scandinavia with YH back in the UK after a long time away.

Not sure this keeps happening but TUI keep seem to be having a problem with their Sunday night programme to Cyprus.
i am not sure if the scheduling and crewing teams are not building enough flexibility into the schedules this summer.

Second week of May Luton Paphos flight had a two hour slot delay so only operated outbound and had to wait for crew to have min rest before inbound flight could operate. Then two weeks ago a 3 hour tech delay on EMA - LCA again meant crew out of hours so flight delayed 24hrs then last night a 2.40 delay on EXT-LCA again crew out of hours so flight delayed 12 hours.

Just donít seem to be seeing same problems with other carriers but do note some plan two hours between arrival of inbound aircraft before operating outbound Cyprus flights so any delays donít eat into crew hours

Yes, I have noticed this before with EXT-LCA so itís at least the second time itís happened from there. IIRC G-TAWJ wasnít even late arriving back into EXT before the LCA flight but it just didnít leave and G-FDZF had to be drafted in from MAN to cover the next day.

The DUB operation is also a mess lately. Friday’s TFS was cancelled, rescheduled for 0540 Saturday morning, didn’t depart until around 1530. The same afternoons KGS was cancelled & rescheduled for Sunday. Had a BY 757 in Saturday & Sunday to clear the backlog. The Monday night BOJ returned shortly after departure, was flown yesterday by a BY 787. They’ve had more problems in the previous weeks but they’re the only problems I know of first hand.

Yeah, TOM have had to send their own aircraft over (737/757/787) to DUB lots to cover the SWG aircraft. There have been a couple of occasions where Iíve noticed DUB-PMI often running 12+ hours late on a 787.

A 757 was also in NWI recently covering there. I havenít noticed as many problems at BFS or LBA but sure there have been some.

I'm sure problems with Sunwing's reliability in the past has pushed TOM to move their own aircraft to bases (I.e. EDI which has now had a TOM plane based for around five years having previously being Sunwing) but they simply donít have the spare capacity right now. Perhaps when the MAXs arrive they will but those are primarily to replace the 757s so I canít see there being a lot of expansion, but possibly some. GLA, CWL and DSA are all set to gain an aircraft next summer too.

G-OOBP popped into NWI last week due to 737 C-FFPH returning from Paphos diverting into Sofia due to tech issue
where it stayed and arrived back in NWI the following day ,lets just say the passengers were not too inpressed
made local news

I have noticed this year Hunberside gained it own TUI 737 am i right, last year the NWI based Sunwing popped up to Humberside couple times a week and operated some flights from there on a W pattern

No, Humberside does not have a TUI 737 based. It sees one flight per week on Tuesdays on a w-pattern.

Not looking good at GLA today. This morning's 06:00 DBV never left and G-OOBC hasn’t moved all day. G-BYAY is currently approaching GLA presumably to operate this flight but there is also a 15:50 ACE still to be operated.
