MAX Registrations

It appears there will be no G-TUME or G-TUMI. Anyone know why?

This will depend. They might not like the sound of G-TUME, or G-TUMI. Airlines donít use every letter for aircraft registration, mainly the letter Q, TUI havenít used G-FDZI either and Other airlines are the same. It depends what they like or want.

I know that G-TAWE wasn’t used as it was the registration of a former, I believe destroyed, aircraft.
G-FDZI (along with others in the FDZ series) were not used due to conflict with the old CDZ series. There was a G-CDZI so FDZI wasn’t used as the last three letters would be the same. There has also been a G-TAWI and G-TUII as well as G-FDZE/G-OOBE/G-TUIE so nothing to do with these letters specifically.

i can’t see any obvious reason why G-TUME or G-TUMI would be inappropriate compared to the obvious G-TAWT which was never used. It seems silly not to use all possible registrations as they will sooner need a new prefix other than TUM- but I guess they must have their reasons...

The LBA for example allow Q however UK CAA do not. They also charge you extra for going out of sequence despite the fact itís not possible to go from P to Q.

They may not have used G- FDZI because they sent the bird in question to Britannia Nordic as SE-DZI and when it returned to UK became G-CDZI.

Maybe Tumi the luggage company has it registered already ? Not sure on TUME.

G-INFO says that neither of the registrations have been used.

I surely canít be the only one who finds this odd...

G-FDZR doing LGW-TFS-BOH today whilst G-TAWW doing BOH-TFS-LGW. Seems like a regular down-route swap, however it seems silly since the BOH aircraft is shcheduled to position to LGW tonight at 20:00 as it does every Friday. Surely this swap couldíve just been done by G-TAWW flying BOH-LGW tonight and then G-FDZR flying LGW-BOH tomorrow night, or am I missing something? Whatís more, the swapping seems to have further delayed what were already slightly delayed flights.

Perhaps it has actually been done to avoid the empty positioning sector later this evening? Makes more more sense and happens regularly with all airlines at out-stations as i'm sure you're already aware.

It wonít avoid it though. My point was that FDZR will arrive back to BOH only for it to position to LGW for Saturday ski flights as it is scheduled to do. Thatís why I canít see the logic.

Ah i see, apologies. Well that does indeed seem a little pointless. The TUI planning department must however see otherwise. I'm more surprised that TUI need to be positioning an empty 737 across from BOH to LGW during the winter.

I also found that quite surprising but I guess they need the capacity at LGW and lack of ski flights from BOH. Itís probably their shortest scheduled positioning flight this winter. There are quite a few each week including EDI-ABZ, ABZ-NWI (can be almost an hour long!), NWI-DUB and DUB-EDI, as well as the several 787 ones.

I would think its to do with crewing, the Gatwick crew will fly on the same aircraft, in this case G-FDZR, LGW-TFS-BOH-LGW so they start their duty at LGW and finish it at LGW, however does mean the BOH crew flew on G-TAWW, BOH-TFS-LGW, maybe this crew is then need at LGW at the weekend, and will then bring the aircraft back to BOH again?

If FR24 is to be believed there's currently a 757 (G-OOBC) routing SFB-BHX as TOM935.

FR24's flight history suggests that yesterday it routed RAK-TER-SFB.

Interested to learn what's behind that unusual routing?

One of the TCS World Travel luxury around-the-world trips, for which TUI provide a kitted out 80 seater 757 for.

That seems a very odd routing to be part of a RTW itinerary, unless the a/c was positioning to pick up a segment from SFB back to BHX, and needed a tech-stop in the Azores on it's way from Morocco.
