Yeah, Iím not sure Israel, a country with consistently one of the tightest borders throughout the whole pandemic, banning foreign visitors is going to put people off booking holidays to Cancun or Jamaica.

It should be rembered that TUI is in the business of selling dreams and is deeply dependent on consumer confidence to make advance bookings. Time from booking to flight has fallen significantly since March last year - people are not booking 6 months ahead like they used to. This is not Tesco where the gap between handing over cash and getting a receipt to be able to take food out the shop is achieved in 30 seconds with very little to go wrong

The fact that France has told UK residents 2 days ago they are not welcome, and that the UK is prone to introducing a red list at such short notice that finding a flight home without quarantine is very very expensive will scare a lot of people from booking flights. Furthermore, if you can't get a negative test no later than 2 days before your flight home means you can't fly home. Google FUD - Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt. Noises about Plan C in the news, possibly being announced in the next few days will not help consumer confidence

I am not booking anything unless a) I can afford to lose the money, and b) I fly home no later than 2 days after I left the UK so I can definitely get a negative test before leaving the UK.

New and last minute flight booking for a week's package holiday on long haul have presumably taken a bit of a tumble. This *will* have implications for the number of flights that TUI and other airlines operate.... unless of course TUI wants to burn cash even faster than they are already - £5m per day of losses was the last figure I saw

Spain insisting on all over-12s being double vaccinated has meant a large number of families not able to travel to Spain, as a family, and delaying or cancelling their break over the Christmas and New Year period.

Jet2 have started combining flights due to passenger loads.
Todays STN-ACE routed STN-FUE-ACE / FUE-ACE-STN so loads must be very low on all winters sun flights inc TUI.

BHX ACE & FUE were also combined today, I would expect a lot more of this after Christmas and into the New Year

Sorry does anyone know how I can see seat plans / aircraft type for TUI flights.
Im sure someone on here said you can on the TUI app but I have tried that with no luck.

If you know the flight number go to Flightmapper.net use TOM flight number it should show you itenary and airframe type.

Does anybody know why G-OBYG is EOL instead of freighter conversion?

In the aviation equivalent of Rock, Paper, Scissors it would appear that Steel beats Carbon Fibre.






Not an easy fix.

My alert level with TUI generally has just gone up a notchÖ a reasonable number of Ďoperationalí incidents and events over past few months which I havenít previously been aware of.

To be fair to TUI, a ground handler driving a catering truck into the side of the aircraft is something that can happen any time and anywhere - just bad luck. CF repair is a more complex affair than on more traditional build methods.

It's not TUI's responsibility to turn it into a freighter, it's only duty is to return it to the Lessor in a fit state.

A few years ago a friend of mine ferried a 9 year old A319 to the US to be parted out - more demand for parts at that time than second hand minibuses. Lots of different economic considerations (cost of conversion, value parted out, cost of routine maintenance etc) to be balanced as a pax aircraft reaches the end of its airline life.

737 max

Iíve noticed on FR24 the 737-Maxís are now operating more from Glasgow and Newcastle instead of the usual 737/800ís. Anyone know if this is a permanent switch or just keeping them busy over the winter?

GLA, CWL, NCL and DSA have recently switched from being 1x738 to 1x7M8. It makes sense particularly for GLA and NCL due to their more northerly positions meaning most flights are a bit longer than from other bases.
