Just checked ABZ-DLM and it's still down as a 737-800 seat map

Varna Flights Dropped

TUI have dropped Varna from their summer 2022 timetable, affecting 2 flights from Gatwick (Mon/Fri) and one from Manchester (Fri).

Also a Wednesday afternoon flight from Newcastle to Larnaca appears to have been removed as well.

Just had our return flight Chania to Man on 3 Jun changed again. Was B737, then 767 now leased A321. Not sure of the airline though. Any ideas please?

Smartlynx.

Tip for some of the above queries, if you do a dummy booking and click forward two pages and scroll down to all the small print, if itís an ACMI itíll let you know which one in there.

Me neither hence my surprise when I saw that our aircraft had changed again to a non TUI aircraft so looks like a late addition maybe as they juggle with the planning capacity?

I think it's replacing the AirTanker A330, which was planned as cover for the delayed delivery of G-TUIP. Apparently the AirTanker aircraft is now required by the RAF.

Obviously 787/A330 to A321 is quite a capacity drop, so I assume they've been juggling the schedule of the remaining three short haul widebodies at MAN to match demand.

Flying to Malaga on 18th May and according to the app itís a 767 out and 787-8 back on 25th.
I know aircraft types can change and sometimes last minute, but Iím more than looking forward to flying on a 767 after nearly 20 years since my last flight on the classic! My last one probably too!

I believe SmartLynx only have 4 passenger A321's in their fleet & 5 freighters, and these 4 passenger aircraft will be flying for Jet2 out of Birmingham this summer, so unless they plan to buy or lease in another A321 very quickly, I can't see how this is going to happen? unless they are planning to converted YL-LDA back to passenger configuration?

ACMI

Looks like the following ACMI aircraft being operated for the Summer:-

1 A320 - SmartLynx - Doncaster
1 A320 - SmartLynx - Manchester (or is it an A321?)
2 A320's - Titan Airways - Gatwick (operating out of the South Terminal)
2 A321's - Avion Express Malta - Gatwick (operating out of the South Terminal)

2 A320's Dublin based, operator unknown, possible SmartLynx?

Unfortunately I have no idea, SALENO says his flight is showing as an A321 and TUI says his flight is operated by Smartlynx so thatís what Iím going with.

TOM2242 Tuesday MAN - HER is showing 3-3-3 configuration unti row 40 when it is 2-3-2 but there is no mention of any ACMI info on a dummy booking. Anyone any ideas?

Interesting one and defo says A321 and seating plan looks like at least one of Smartlynx from their own website. Only appeared end of last week and surprised me somewhat, but this is the 3rd aircraft type we have been allocated so far with still 6 weeks to go! My brother is also flying from LGW at the same time and they have just had their return changed from B787 to Titan A321.

How do you add the advanced passenger info on the TUI app?
When I click the button it just takes me to the flight details page which then gives me no option of adding the infoÖ?

How are people seeing aircraft type for these flights.
is there a way to see what aircraft are operating flights.
I find it very frustrating as most airlines show aircraft type while booking and on the likes of flight scanner.

You need to select to pre book seats to see the seat plan. Tui used to proudly display which flights operate with the Dreamliner, but not other aircraft types unfortunately.

In the good old days of the Thomson/SkyTours/Horizon/Portland brochures, they used to display in the back pages the flight schedules. If I remember right they used to show BY for Britannia 737 and BY* for Britannia 767 flights.

Gone are those days sadly.
