Do not forget that Summer 20 is a more pressing issue for them. Plenty of time to sort out Summer 21 once things are clearer.

Inside terminal EMA is a much quieter, more relaxed experience IMO.
If you don't mind paying Midland Expressway's extortionate tolls, and MAG's extortionate, (though moderated after an outcry), drop off charges then you're right, EMA is a tad better in terms of pick-up / drop-off.

Couldn't you leave the car locally and get the train to Birmingham International?

I would make sure and keep checking the flight in 21 will go ahead,rather than worry about which aircraft will operate the flight.

Only way you can find out that information so far in advance is to book extra legroom seats, it will then give you access to the seat plan.

Need to pay in advance to get to the Seat plan.
i just wanted to avoid the MAX.. 75/76 ideal.
Or pay more for the Dreamliner flights which is extra £93 pp.

Does anyone know when TUI are likely to actually inform customers that their flights are cancelled? I am booked to fly with them on 16 July and I know the flight is cancelled as it's not from LGW/MAN/BHX and has been removed from the timetable. However, I haven't heard anything from TUI and while I'm aware it's very early, I'm also aware of how late they often leave communication and want to be able to make a decision on what to do next.

My first option would appear to be to amend to the MAN flight on the same day which seems to have enough free seats but this would be very inconvenient. The second option would be to delay the holiday by two weeks and fly from a near-ish base to where I am booked from (one of the two that will start at the end of July). The third option is to change airline. Jet2 are currently saying they will start on the 15th and are selling flights on the 16th to my destination but I'm not entirely convinced they'll jump straight into full-ops and have no confidence that my airport will be one of the "chosen" few to start first.

We've got some thinking to do but it's difficult with so much uncertainty (I'm still hopeful that TUI may contact us and offer a coach to MAN but again, have no confidence that they will do this).

I was due to depart to Rhodes from Manchester today ! The only contact I have had from TUI was an Email on 25th May saying my holiday cannot go ahead as planned. I have not heard anything since, no phone calls no further emails and no refund voucher so far.

You have probably already checked but their website currently states all Holidays up to 10th July are cancelled, anything after that date will be going ahead as planned ? I feel for you not knowing what will be happening. I hope you find out soon !

So too Doncaster starts in August.

I don't doubt capacity will be ramped up if required as a result of a surge in demand.

The way I read it was the 5 bases by the end of July and up to 50% operations from August.

ABZ, BFS, EDI, LTN and NWI wonít have any flights for summer 20. Looks like EDI wonít have any winter 20 flights too.

Looks like from the 11th July, 10 737 will be used from LGW, MAN and BHX. Dublin will start on the 23rd July with a G registered 737.

BRS & GLA start from the 25th as well as some 757 and 767 aircraft being used at the 3 main airports. The rest of the airports will start from the 1st August with some 787 flights possible depending on demand from either LGW or MAN.

So a larger offering in July than previously thought? As 10 737's would easily be too many for 44 flights p/w?

Iíd imagine those 44 flights will be optimally timed and on prime days of the week, rather than crammed into as few aircraft as possible. No point having flights departing at 6am or getting back at 3am if you have 50 spare aircraft. I assume it would be akin to the winter schedule with flights departing at 9/10am and returning at 5-8pm (but I was wrong about Glasgow being one of the next two bases to open so what do I know).

(for anybody checking the TUI website and seeing that there are flights in the first week departing at 6am or getting back at 3am, I believe the actual departure/arrival times havenít been updated yet).

This is not correct according to TUI's website. BFS is off until S21 but EDI/ABZ/LTN/NWI will return with limited flying from October and then normal winter schedules as far as I can see. EDI certainly not closed all winter.
