Return flight to Melbourne, Florida. Having experienced its well worth the drive from Orlando. Clearly, they see Tui as a big fish, and as a passenger, they have focused on our experience just as much as the deal for Tui,

On arrival, the terminal is clearly being extended (I'm told since doubling in size). While signage is not up, there was staff everywhere pointing the way and greeting passengers. Luggage is collected before immigration. The officials were marginally less officious than normal. The airport had a little gift bag ready with water and snacks, which was a nice touch.

Some car hire services are temporarily in an air-conditioned marquee, with additional air-conditioned temporary toilets also.

Coming back, similar reception. No queue at check-in, even at peak arrival time. No queue at security with friendly and helpful officials (take not UK Staff!). All the employees from the chatty cleaner to the Police officer working to reunite a phone to its owner were helpful, motivated, and actually seemed to take pride in their work and the airport. Again for passengers we were given a voucher for free food and water.##

On the way back we drove down from Cape Canaveral to the airport. Tremendous beach.

I would have no hesitation in flying there again - in fact, I would choose it over Orlando, and stay a night locally before traveling up to the City.

I think Tui will do well with this location.

SE-RFZ 787-900 now flying out of Manchester. Is this to cover for the late delivery of IP? Its the old G-TUIK that was transferred last year.

Does anyone know what will be based in BFS for summer? Will it be TUI aircraft or Sunwing once again?

BRS CUN will be because of weight. Aircraft is very limited on a full load - especially if the runway is wet in anyway shape or form

Are TUI having problems with their leased Sunwing planes?

Looking at ABZ based C-FYJD and NWI based C-GFEH which only started operating for TUI on 1 May the former has had 7 out of 12 flights late and the latter 6 out of nine flights late (excluding UK positioning flights). Is this down to new and inexperienced crews, handling agents not used to holiday flights because of COVID or technical problems?

I know delays can happen to all airlines on any routes but the record so far in just three days of operation is poor and this is before the proper summer holiday flight rush at airports.

I donít think itís just a Sunwing thing. I havenít done any form of detailed checking but Iíve seen countless delays since the summer season started on Sunday, some of which have been pretty significant (3/4+ hours).

Is anyone aware of a known issue with seat assignments on boarding passes when receiving them via whatís app?
12 of us are booked on a trip with the same booking reference so the person who booked the trip has checked us in via the app. She has then sent us via a whatís app group our boarding passes but upon checking the seat assignments in our boarding passes, we noticed they are completely different to the boarding passes in the appÖI donít know if this is a TUI issue or something else I canít explainÖ

Seems really poor from smaller and quieter airports which aren't experiencing security delays like Manchester and Birmingham.

Our plane today came in early, had a 1.5 hour turnaround and still pushed back late on our flight. Really don't understand what TUI are playing at so early in the season. Good luck to them at the height of the season!

Sorry but I think till your armed with all the facts your making an ď arm chair ď response that you actually donít know anything about
I thought this forum was a bit more mature, but as late , some very poor posts on here re TUI and other airlines/ airports and in fact anything airline related

We have just come out of the biggest single catastrophe and trying to get aviation / airports back up and flying and everything that goes along with it seems to be up for criticism

Smaller airports are not immune from the industry wide shortages. Yes they may not make the news like the bigger airports but they are still suffering.

You really need to understand the issues. Crews of 1 or 2 cleaners turning up to clean an aircraft on a turn where there used to be a squad of 6 or 8. Same with caterers, fuellers, security staff the list goes on and on. Yes some issues could be blamed directly at the airline, but a good chunk cannot.

The industry went into complete hibernation losing thousands of experienced staff in the process. You can't get new ones in and up to the same level overnight. Things are going to get better but it will take time.

Plus some people will have found more stable careers and won't want to come back to an industry that is rather volatile, so will take time to attract new people to bring it back to the same levels as before
