TUI to Turkey

Carrying on from the Cap Verde virus comments, Turkey has a huge number of hidden cases as the Turkish Government has been silencing doctors and the media about the extent of Covid in the country. I hope that the U.K. does not open a bridge to Turkey, the consequences would be dire for those returning back without quarantine. The U.K. needs to set politics aside.

Agree they need to set aside politics, but something far greater is taking over Economics ! Some places in the UK.... Leicester for one, now the Dumfries area in Scotland are seeing a slight increase in cases. Lockdown easing all seems to point to getting the economy restarted, maybe too soon, time will tell, hope not. Its such a fine balance Health or economy. Keep tight controls on the UK borders, lets face it thats how it got here in the first place.

Leicester have actually seen a slight reduction as have most of the high rate areas over the past week all be it Leicester is an outlier in they have a larger by far rate.

Will get these regardless of easing lockdown though, even the Germans have had local lockdowns and they are seen as a shining example in Europe.

I am very surprised because all the B757s were supposed to be phased out prior to the summer 2021 season.
I was offered a job with them back in early 2019, this with a two year contract for that very reason.
Maybe someone on hear that works within TUI engineering could spread some light on this, as they are going to be only ones that know when each aircraft is leaving the fleet.

The 737 max stored in TFS did a pax flight from MAN,but due to the max issues could not do the flight back to MAN as all max aircraft had been stopped flying in British air space,and also europe air space as well. It cant be far off 12 months now its been there,some body will confirm this.

I believe the Ethiopian accident happened on 10th March 2019 with the grounding coming a few days later so it's been out there around 15 months...

You also get the sandy hot winds from the Sahara blowing in - I wonder what state this 737 -8 will be in? It was less than a month old when grounded
No engine covers it seems...16 months on the deck...
Norwegian got their stranded Max out of TFS AFAIK.

TUI UK have 5 more stored at MAN plus at least 3 or 4 completed examples ready at Boeing that were just about to be delivered for S19.
Not sure if any -10 versions have actually been built as yet for TUI.
They were due to take some of those for S20.

The MAX at TFS does normally have engine covers on (I’ve seen pics and also saw it in person). Perhaps they’d been removed for engine runs when this pic was taken?

Today I managed to go into a TUI store at Fort Kinnaird, Edinburgh to query why I had not heard anything from TUI regarding a recent cancellation and was still waiting for the refund voucher and 20% reduction incentive. The staff were absolutely brilliant, changed our holiday to 2021 with very little fuss and applied the 20% incentive also. Even changed the flights from Manchester to Glasgow at very little extra cost. Does not seem like TUI will be operating from Edinburgh this year, possibly next year also ?

The EDI base is closed for the rest of S20 (along with ABZ/NWI/BFS). There are due to be two weekly flights to TFS throughout October with the usual winter ops starting in November.

Travel operator TUI is set to offer free coronavirus cover with every holiday.

The move is designed to reassure holidaymakers, who will be covered for Covid-19 testing costs, overseas medical help and repatriation flights, if medically required.

The cover will also fund an extended stay and a new return flight home if customers are forced to self-isolate while they're away.....
....The cover – which should be used alongside normal travel insurance – will be included for all customers travelling on any TUI holiday between 11 th July and 31 st December 2020 and applies to all new and existing bookings.
Andrew Flintham, managing director of TUI UK & Ireland said: Many of our customers have been waiting with eager anticipation to hear about whether they could go on holiday this summer, so we’re delighted that our first customers will depart this weekend. We’ve done a lot of work to ensure we can take our customers on relaxing, enjoyable and - most importantly – safe holidays again and it’s really exciting to be able to offer our customers additional peace of mind when booking with us, with our new Covid-19 Cover. It means that they can book with confidence, knowing that extra costs associated with Covid-19 that wouldn’t be covered by regular travel insurance, will be taken care of.

Norwegian flew them the long way round clear of EASA UK and German airspace with a special dispensation. TUi simply didn’t pursue the CAA for such an exemption as far as I know.

I feel they could have if only to repatriate to Manchester .

There have been numerous max repositioning flights elsewhere cepting the UK and Germany in the main

For some reason, I believe there was an LGW-IBZ yesterday but yes today was certainly supposed to be the first day.
