They dont tell you your rebooked holiday will cost more than than the 20% extra their offering .My rebooking was quoted with a 24% price increase !

Hardly an incentive to keeping your custom and goodwill.

It depends on your view of what the world will look like next year. It all depends on capacity. If airlines fail and there are fewer seats available but demand returns to more normal levels, prices will be inevitably higher. If airlines manage to survive and are desperate to sell seats, prices will fall. If you need to travel on specific dates fixing your holiday price now might be an inspired decision, its a gamble.
If you are flexible and willing to take a risk, holding off booking might bring a real holiday bargain.

Just seen it’s at St Athans - is that for scrapping?

Originally it was end of lease maintenance, but that might now have changed.

End of lease maintenance. Was due to be done in Xiamen but changed for fairly obvious reasons.

I'm scheduled to fly LGW - RHO in September, Corona dependent...

I see this is scheduled out of the South Terminal. I thought it was only TUI flights operated by Norwegian that went out of the South, but booking clearly states it is operated by TUI.

Can anyone shed light on this?

Your flight numbers should be on your reservation confirmation

TUI holidays and TUI flights usually always publish the flight numbers at this time

if TUI are using a third-party airline in your case then it should be highlighted.
Go onto TUI flights and try a dummy booking for a flight only for that day you are bookedaand it may they give you up-to-date information on the airline and flight number.

From what I’ve understood all south terminal departures using the ‘BY’ prefix were due to be operated by a leased in airline.
I would hazard a guess that this kind of flying has been canned (like Jet2 have done) for this summer.
You’ll be better off waiting for your tickets to arrive via email with the most up to date confirmed details. There’s likely to be considerable changes to all operators flying programmes, as and when they recommence operations.

I checked against booking info and flight number and terminal has changed completely but for outbound only.

One or more of your flights operates at Gatwick Airport with SmartLynx Airlines. Please note if your flight confirmation shows 'TUI operated by SmartLynx' and has a 'BY5' flight number this will depart from Gatwick South Terminal. When you arrive at Gatwick Airport, please head for the dedicated ‘TUI Operated by SmartLynx’ check-in area in the South Terminal.

(That’s taken from the website)

It read that but that's not what my booking says. It says 'operated by TUI'. The flight number has changed completely from a TOM to a BY number and changed terminals. I don't know if it is a foreshadowing of what they suspect the operations may be like at that time?

TUI still selling holidays departing May 15th onwards...... we are now seventeen days away. Personally, I can’t see those flights operating. I did see one article this morning suggesting Canaries do not want any UK holidaymakers before end of Summer at the very earliest.

Indeed. I have a friend who had a £42k holiday booked with Tui for mid-May and wanted to move it to later this year (October time) and was quoted £11k to change... so now they're just going to have to wait for it to be officially cancelled and hope for the best.

It is not a case of the Canaries not wanting UK holidaymakers (who make a large contribution to the economy) but having to preserve the current state of virus decline on the Islands. Sundays figures showed only 11 new cases and nil deaths throughout the Canaries.......something I have to bear in mind whilst I am trying to return to uk.

I am pretty sure that anyone travelling on non essential travel will be doing so without valid travel insurance, this is due to the FCO travel guidelines issued at this time.

JSCL, your friends should now have no problem with the booking in May as TUI has cancelled all package holidays until the 11th June.
