Yes I heard G-TUIL B789 is to replace G-TUIG as there will be a B789 based at MAN from
April.

The Guardian
Tui's male employees paid more than double female staff – report

Travel group’s report says women earn 56.9% less than men but it is ‘not an equal pay issue’

Means nothing, the article is not comparing like with like.
Its obvious that a pilot will earn more than cabin crew, regardless of gender.
All the pilots are paid the same, regardless of gender, all the cabin crew are paid the same, regardless of gender.
Shock horror....pilots earn more than Cabin Crew.

I had always thought that the 789s would be extras on the 788s.

Hadn't anticipated they would dispose of 788s when the 9s arrived.

Harder to predict how much further the route network can expand with the 787 fleet now.

suppose its like the 762's getting ditched for 763's back in the day as economies of scale and increased efficiencies were realised. I personally preferred the proportions of 762 and this 788

Have I missed something but where does it actually state that TUI UK are disposing of their Boeing 788 fleet in favour of the Boeing 789?

Well a few others including Mr Osbourne is confusing the story a bit by their incoherent posts hence why I posed the question!

One 788 is going from UK to Belgium, whilst two 789 join the UK fleet. That's all.

When do TUI UK start receiving the Max aircraft ? I was talking to a TUI base engineer and was saying that some of the older 737s were getting harder to maintain and the cabins in particular were getting very tired as donít have the Sky interior.

I presume the Max10s will go to the 757 bases so they can do the longer routes.

Yes they are just optimising 787 fleet.

They canít stop using the 788 as it has better runway performance for the likes of Bristol. The 789 needs a longer take-off field length to do Cancun for example. The economics of the 789 operating from BRS would be worse than the 788.

Apparently no additional destinations for NCL and NWI, but increased frequencies on existing routes.

As for TUI Ireland:

Dublin-Paphos
Dublin-Dalaman

Is all this expansion based on Max deliveries? With some 757s leaving the fleet before S19 and the amount of additional flights im guessing no airports are losing capacity in order to shift aircraft elsewhere?

Its expansion based on something. No one knows yet. Could be additional aircraft into TUIA or could be 3rd party. Internal comms suggests this decision is still to be made, although that could just be HR malarkey as company/union are locking horns at the moment.

Recruitment has opened earlier than normal so that maybe a hint that the company are gearing towards a busy training year and thus having to start earlier than normal if the expansion comes in-house.

the 767-200's were a bit long in the tooth

even the most recent (18 yo) a/c BYAA/AB went to the scrappers
BRIF/BRIG and BOPB saw life with Excel Silverjet and Jordan Av.

all were ER and CF6 80 powered but they did not have large forward cargo doors and had little resale in them

configs were 2-4-2 seating and was tight

4 x 763's remain now but only the BY -304 build and not any of the ex AMM or UKL a/c remain


BRS airport once they lose the 757's from there will see more operational difficulties with op'g 737-800 or MAX from there due to runway length and weather issues

TUI has based a B737-800 at BRS along with the two B757s for the past three summers. This summer it will be two 737-800s together together with the two 757s.

The 737-800s have been operating on routes to the Canaries, Cyprus, Turkey and the Greek Islands as well as on shorter routes. Have there been problems with them at BRS during this time? I've not heard or read about any.
