All leases I believe

It wouldn't be sensible to do anything else, with all those Maxs on order.

Leases in what sense though? I’m sure pretty much their entire fleet is officially “leased” in that the aircraft are not owned by TOM, but rather leasing companies. The airline have acquired these aircraft and so they will presumably be fully painted etc (or at least I’d hope so). I’m guessing possibly leased for somewhere between 6mths-2yrs.

i very much doubt they'll be painted. None of these aircraft have surfaced yet so doubt they'll have time to get them painted. White tails and decals would be my bet. Then if they are staying for medium term then they'll be painted over next winter.

Yes, even just white with decals or perhaps basic blue like the old livery. TOM have never shown much interest in paining their leased aircraft even with basic decals, compared to Sunwing who usually always plaster the TUI frames with their decals. I would hope they wont go for some sort of hybrid with Norwegian/Pegasus/FlyDubai liveries but well see what happens.

Due to leave the fleet ? The MAX will likely be back by the time Sunwings season starts up again after this one.

Remember TUI is not just UK operation, perhaps the balance of 738s being acquired will go to TUI Belguim, Deutschland, Netherlands & Nordic?

Apologies in advance if this has been mentioned before but the TUI flights from Dublin are Tui Fly Nordic operating with BLX flight numbers instead of TUI Airways. Previously they wouldve been TOM flight numbers. Im wondering why this has changed?

Brexit? UK isn't in the EU now so TUI UK might not be able to do EU to EU?

We may have left, but during the transition period the old rules still apply so there is no reason why these flights couldn't be operated by TUI UK.

The DUB flights are operated by a TUI UK aircraft (G-TAWK) but with Nordic flight numbers/callsigns. Initially I was confused as these flights were previously operated with TOM flight numbers but I came to the conclusion that it is most likely somewhat related to Brexit.

You're quite right, the DUB operation was modified recently to de-risk the flying programme in the event of a hard Brexit. DUB crew & flights now operate under the Nordic umberella.

Which essentially is a mirror image of TUI Airways operations, when compared to the rest of the airline group.
