Our flight was delayed a couple of hours as the incoming had a lightning strike and they shipped a 787 from MAN 👍🏻

C-GLRN is already in ABZ, arrived yesterday evening. Today it has done what looks to be a test/training flight over the North Sea. The first summer flight is tomorrow to RHO.

Last summer, Monarch Engineering looked after the Sunwing 737 at Leeds Bradford Airport. Both are now gone from LBA but another Line Engineering company, Luftavia, has set up here to look after the SmartLynx Airbus for the next few weeks. Perhaps Luftavia will be doing something similar for Sunwing at Norwich, Aberdeen etc. Pure speculation, obviously.

sunwing

cheers for the input
reason why asked who looking after them is it would mean all 5 swapping around during the season to enable each aircraft to pass through Maintenance at what ever airport or company dealing with them, which is good for those needing each one.
As i said they used Leeds as a mini base and all the spares that was brought over were kept there

cheers guys

G-ZAPX was used from STN today although I believe there was only one TOM flight from there today so no other TOM aircraft operating. G-TAWM/N are now based at STN though for tomorrow. C-GFEH has flown YUL-GLA. According to Jethros it's due to be DUB-based so not sure why it's at GLA. Perhaps it'll position over soon. That just leaves C-FYJD (BFS) to come over, although the BFS base usually opens later in the season. This year, all SWG aircraft seem to be fairly young (5yrs or less) and so presumably all have Sky Interior.

G-FDZB and G-FDZG (currently both under Canadian reg) are now the only TOM 738s still on winter lease. G-TAWY remains in the Nordics as SE-RFX.

Its possible that the Sunwing that is in Glasgow is to be based there as there were supposed to be 2 Max8s there as of yesterday

I'm sure there's a reason but some bizarre routing today.

G-FDZY flew GLA-DBV-GLA (normal)
G-TAWH flew EMA-DBV-GLA-EMA
Anyone know why this might be? It has resulted in substantial delays at EMA, combined with the fact that EMA-AGP this morning left over six hours late.

G-TAWG also flew CWL-DLM-LGW and now appears to be working from there, leaving CWL an aircraft short, with the 13:35 CWL-ZTH still not having left.

It doesn't look like TOM has enough aircraft for its current schedule. Obviously we knew the lack of MAXs would be an issue but they are leasing to support this. Also, this is by no means the height of summer.

Where will this come from? There have been rumours of lease extensions but it would appear that all 757s due to be withdrawn before summer have been already and no more were due to be.

G-OOBG is still in DGX and G-CPEV at LTN but they've been idle for a while now - surely they'd be back in service by now if the leases were being extended?

Also the 767s are still in Taipei.

Just because leases may or may not have been extended, does not mean they would be back in service.
Heavy maintenance checks would most likely have been arranged to coincide with the end of leases.
These checks would most likely still be due and would require performing.
Not so easy to rearrange maintenance inputs at short notice, especially now that MAEL is not around to pick up the slack.

BHX therefore having 2 lease Olympus A321's and a leased in 738 as well
