It all depends on handling, fuel, transfer of pax if needed, hotels etc crewing( no good to be stuck with no pilots or cabin crew for 12 hours)

Surprised they dont do this and offer Stansted or EMA although i suppose the decision is down to the individual airlines
Not how it works in the main. Diversions are organised by the carriers own operations.

Almost all carriers aim for another operating station in the very first instance.

And indeed as happened today some carriers will simply go back home, cue British Airways , KLM, SAS and Lufthansa .

Diverting off of station is a major hassle especially if crews time out and/or your company has no handling or fuel contracts in place.

Outcomes the company emergency credit card if onboard( subject to available credit limits) or it’s on the phone for hours with the accounts team and having to get the supplier to email across a proforma invoice for immediate bank transfer to be made (provided someone senior enough is in the office the authorise payment !)

Then you got to either find ground transfer coaches or hotel accommodation as well.

Finding coaches these days can be another hassle ( there are many fewer companies today than twenty years ago) and further delay and again their pesky proforma will also need immediate payment before coaches and drivers are suitably dispatched

Tui flight to Cuba

Just been informed by TUI that our flight to Varadero from MAN for 20th March 2023 has been cancelled. Does anyone know why and if TUI have pulled that route for 2023. Really dissapointed! 😔

I would think that demand to Cuba has dropped off a cliff now that anyone entering is no longer eligible for the US Visa Wavier Programme.

Are you sure? They are still selling it now?

It’s not surprising, after the US when Donald Trump left office labelling Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism. Technically, if you have been to Cuba in the last 10 years, you’ll need a full US visa instead of the ESTA visa waiver - in which case, why would you want to go to Cuba, when Mexico or Dom Rep doesn’t have similar downsides.

Thanks for your thoughts on this. I understand the situation but it's frustrating all the same. Cuba is a fascinating destination and it's a shame for the local economy and people, as well as British travellers if this destination is now effectively out of bounds due to the whim of the ex-US President. I guess that was the intention.

I haven't tried another dummy booking yet but usually TUI would just change our dates or times if the destination was still being served. Tui also state in their Email that the decision was as a result of a review of their flying programme for next year.

The three-times weekly Kuwait flight is operated more than rarely by an A330 instead of the scheduled A320. Is that a sign that the route is doing well and could grow to more than 3* weekly?

The route has been upgraded to a mix of A330-200/800’s until the remainder of the winter schedule with the exception of Jan1st which is an A320neo. Most of the A330 flights are showing as the 200 variant which has First class, so I’m guessing the sales are going well.

TOM154 / TOM155 Saturday 17th December

Hi all

Can anyone please advise the AC Due to operate this flight MAN - CUN tomorrow?

A friend has just received an email from TUI to say the aircraft has changed and has been advised there is now no premium on board?

Thanks
Steven

If Emirates US/Manchester existed ?

Would Manchester have a problem with transatlantic services if EK stepped in ?

Are you sure that your original date hasnt been moved to 20th?

TUI have altered the flying programme to a Monday now. The original flights were a Thursday.

Dunno, but they've got a problem at the moment. 😁
