Does anyone know why G-TUID operated MAN-MAH-ALC-MAN on Saturday? The aircraft left MAH and headed straight for ALC so was obviously planned. Was it something to do with the G-TAWI NCL delay?

Earlier in the day, it operated MAN-ALC-MAN.

Whatís the deal with the 767ís this summer? I know G-OBYK is staying in Sweden, but G-OBYH took me to Ibiza 3 weeks ago from MAN, but is now back in Sweden, I thought it was odd because the IFE only had Scandinavian languages as options

YH and YK seem to be permanently operating from the Nordics (unsure why they continue to be registered under TUI UK - in fact, YK was only recently "transferred" to TUI UK but hasn't done any UK flying).

YH swapped with YF and spent a few days working from MAN this summer before swapping back - I think the reason was so it could visit LTN, but could be wrong.

No mention of a windshield on here but if thatís true then I guess it makes sense. I canít imagine the Manchester-bound passengers would be very happy about that.

i heard elsewhere it was a cracked windsheild whether that is true or not but G-TUID calling in from MAH would back that claim up.

Does anybody know how many 737 Max's TUI UK will have for summer 19 ? Also any idea where these are going to be based, I presume they will be used to replace 757s to do the Cape Verde and longer flights.

the max will most probably be based at Gatwick and Manchester, I know Glasgow is getting a 737 as well as the 757 next summer but will most probably be the standard 738

Boeing 757's

Jethro's shows 757 "EU" leaving December 18, EV leaving Spring 19 along with BG & BH which really hits home that this type in TUI days are numbered and only one full summer season left.

I know it hardly matters as the fleet will be zero in summer 2020 but which bases will lose some or all of their 757's next summer? I suppose BHX could be a candidate as short-haul aircraft 8 arrives only one year after short-haul aircraft 7 arrived?

So at present nobody is really sure how many Max's they will have for Summer 19, Personally I would imagine that there will be at least one based at LGW,MAN and BHX. I did hear recently from a Swissport staff member that EMA was getting one by July which i cant see if they are being brought in to replace the old 757s unless there are some longer routes that they want to do and need the range

RT callsign change tonight

TUI AIR becomes TOMJET tonight. Much easier for the ATC guys. Seeing a TOM123 callsign and having to say TUI AIR123 was confusing, much better as TOMJET123

At least the callsign was the same as the word painted on the side of the aeroplane. Changing callsigns for the second time in a few months seems a little odd...and TUIAIR rolls off the tongue much better than TOMJET. Just my £0.02.

Who makes these decisions?

If they had to change it from TUIAIR because it clashed with TUIJET (TUI), then surely TOMJET wonít be much better?

Shouldíve gone back to TOMSON!

I always thought Britannia sounded better, I believe that's where BY came from.
