My guess is that it is entirely salvageable, though it might be very expensive. Though from Boeing's point of view that level of damage and source could be very expensive if it ends up a write-off, especially from GSE damage. Obviously the integral composite barrels are different than sheet metal, but I have seen an entire wing and adjacent fuselage structure replaced.

Hearing several reports that TUIB might not be salvageable? Something’s to do with the size of the hole and the way the skin is constructed in that part. Normal patch can’t quite cover it?
Given that there was a hole burned in the roof of ET-AOP at Heathrow and it was declared a write up by many of us I suspect Boeing may yet surprise us. They're writing the book on how to repair these composite aircraft, they've also spent millions bringing the "terrible teens" up to spec on rebuild so a write off is not what they'd look to do unless it was beyond repair IMHO.

Nope. It's being repaired.

My guess is that the damage is outside the allowable for a standard SRM (Structural Repair Manual) repair, either time-limited or permanent. This would trigger further engineering support to design, substantiate, and potentially approve the repair. I have no idea on how TUI's mtc system operates, but for some airlines this might be totally in-house, others will go straight to Boeing, and in some cases it will be a mix of both. Regardless, this will extend the repair time, often considerably.

A boeing 787's material make up is very complex indeed, a composite structure interwoven with copper amongst other materials

Looks like she has left St Athan this morning US-bound.

Apologies if it's been mentioned and I've missed it but G-TUIB is now tail first inside the Thomas Cook hanger being attended to by Boeing engineers. From what I can gather TUI/Boeing are renting the floor space and have an cordoned off area in there.

What would the situation be regarding payment/insurance on the TUIB issue? I assume that the ground handling agents insurance would be covering the repairs etc, would they also be liable for any subcharters that TUI need to carry out?

Summer 18

BHX-VCE disappeared from flight only weeks ago and Izmir in the holiday section is on Thomas Cook but still 8 based aircraft so still plus 1 on 2017.

Venice was definitely bookable a month or so ago so something has changed.

789

Just want to answer one of my own questions from a few weeks ago.

I now have sight of the seat maps and the TUI website shows a 789 operating into Manchester come April. So, indeed it looks like Manchester will see a mix of 788 and 789 operations by April 2018.

Does anyone know if TUI are using a Sunwing aircraft for the BFS base in S18 again?
