Like Qantas being spelled "Quantas", or Stansted being spelled "Stanstead". Also the number of people who write "loose" instead of "lose" is enormous.

I am with you there as those are other equally annoying spelling errors.

I can't get my head around the pronunciation of Tui, how you guys flying manage with 'foreign' ATC is going to be fun. But all is not lost

Touristic Union International wouldn't be as trendy would it- anyone else remember that on the side of chartered coaches meeting Germanair flights in the 70s.

I assume a direct lineage can be traced

Absolutely the German tour operator just started using the acronym some years ago, which over the last 20 years has slowly spread around Europe with the acquisitions made by TUI AG (which was originally Preussag AG)

See the Winter 2018/19 flights are on sale, Notice the NWI - TFS has been reduced to once weekly but timings suggest the aircraft now originates in NWI with flights: NWI -TFS 10:25 - 14:55 TFS - NWI 16:05 - 20:35. Year round base on the cards?

Anyone know what is going on with BY6635 Palma to Cardiff operated by G-FDZW, has been routed to Luton...

When looking at routing on FR24, doesn't look like it diverted at last minute, and flew the usual hold pattern before touching down.

Currently showing as a three hour delay at Cardiff, but touched down about 1 hour late into Luton, from the Cardiff arrival time...

I believe it was an aircraft change.

Was that G-OBYF last flight with TUI empty to Shannon this afternoon?

I don't believe YE is being WFU, the 767s are due to be around for a few more years yet. It's off to Brussels on 1/11, one would assume a winter lease to TUI Belgium.

Much of the 767 maintenance is done in Shannon, and November is the ideal time between the end of the UK short haul Summer and the peak of the Nordic operations which the 767 will be deployed on during the winter.

I'm sure it was YF I seen last Friday doing MAN to one of the canary islands.

Almost certainly - all three operate short haul from Manchester during the Summer until the end of October.

Do we know what flights will be done by UK based TUI a/c, used on scandinavian flights during winter period Dec to Apr. According to flight mapper it looks like 3 787's and 2 767's, however with the flt's I am aware of it might be only 1 767. Any help would be appreciated.

I believe the 787s are doing UK and Scandi mixed. All 5 767s are in Scandinavia though. YE/F/G/H/K.
