I would like to know that too! I will soon (hopefully) be on my way to Malaga airport soon to hopefully catch the Wamos A330 back to Manchester!

well I got taken off it yesterday by text! Just said as I’d booked flight only and there weren't enough seats I’d been cancelled and refunded! No replacement flight offered! The Wamos hasn’t left Birmingham yet!

Don't forget you are legally entitled to 400 Euros compensation per person (as you had less than 14 days notice) PLUS the difference between the refund received from TUI and the amount you pay for a new replacement flight.
If they haven't informed you of your legal rights in the messages, I would send a complaint to and ask for help from the Spanish authority (which you can do in English here: https://sede.seguridadaerea.gob.es/S...o.aspx?lang=en )

meanwhile TOM7418 BHX-EFL, B738 G-FDZU diverted to ZTH, and then had an aborted take off, so is current tech in ZTH, with TOM7419 EFL-BHX, operating out of ZTH instead on B738 G-TAWI, which then diverted to DSA! The knock on effect shows TOM7450 BHX-HER due out at 16:55 now being delayed almost 24 hours, and is now due out on Friday at 16:00

Just wondering if we might see a combined Heraklion flight for East Midland & Birmingham passengers with TOM7442 EMA-HER 17:20 still delayed?

The delayed TOM2300 MAN-AGP on Wamos A332 EC-NCK is currently just taxing out for departure, only 43 hours late..........

on a positive note G-TAWN is show as re-entering service from BHX on Friday morning, so only G-TAWP, G-TUIF & SE-RFZ to return to service!

I wonder if the TUI bosses are having sleepless nights over it?? Total shambles from TUI

Sleepless nights whilst the competition cancels 200 flights in one day?

With respect, I think you’re the only one having sleepless nights. Maybe give the Flightradar24 app a rest for a day or so?

this us all I got

Dear Mr Bowcock, We’re really sorry about the delay to your flight today. Due to a technical issue with the aircraft, we’ve had to arrange for an alternative aircraft to operate the flight tomorrow. The new aircraft is smaller than originally planned and we therefore have less seats available which means we’ve had to cancel your flight only booking.

We’re really sorry for any disappointment and inconvenience caused. We’ve actioned a full refund of the cost paid for your flight and below is a link that you’re able to use to claim compensation. The refund of your flight costs should show in your bank within the next 3-5 working days.

https://www.tui.co.uk/destinations/c.../flight-delays

i haven’t gone as the flight prices were quite expensive and I wasn’t sure how I stood in regards to them helping out! No staff to ask either at Manchester!

The last part of the Aberdeen - Dalaman -Glasgow Dalaman - Aberdeen W flight was cancelled at the last minute last night so those 2 flights need to operate at some point too. It only managed to operate Aberdeen Dalaman Glasgow before the rest was cancelled. The aircraft then repositioned to Aberdeen before operating the normal Friday morning Corfu

I think I'm a bad luck charm - I've got some more friends flying LGW-AYT today and their departure is delayed at least 4 hours. I assume that is due to waiting for an inbound flight ?
TUI have emailed a £6 voucher. Hopefully that's £6 each not £6 between the 4 of them

Edit: sounds like the aircraft has gone tech, my friends are being told the aircraft is "waiting for parts".

Does anyone have any info on what has actually happened ?

“With respect” maybe you should give this forum a rest for a day or so?

TOM642.

They're boarding now, 4 hours late, so whatever the problem was must be fixed. Aircraft is G-TUMO.


Edit: unfortunately all the passengers are now being offloaded, by the time boarding completed it was too late to leave before the crew would have been out of hours, so everyone is being shipped to a hotel for the night.

The GLA based 788 is covering it at 16.10 today . Dalaman-Aberdeen pax being bussed north from Glasgow in the early hours I suspect !

They have been bussed to the Hilton at Heathrow and promised they will be flying out tomorrow. Surprised there was not a hotel closer to Gatwick with availability. Hopefully they will get away tomorrow. And hopefully my cousin will manage to get home from Torremolinos today.

New estimated time of departure is 21:50 local time tonight, so a 38 hour delay if it gets away as estimated. I guess they could spend the day plane spotting at Heathrow before they get bussed back down to Gatwick. :/

Did the IB Dalaman to Glasgow operate? FR24 shows that the AC travelled to Birmingham once it reached Dalaman

G-TUIB had another 3 hour delay on GLA-DLM , then went to BHX. G-TUII arrived at GLA this morning too do the GLA-CUN and will have 3-4 hour delay !

As for the Dalaman - Aberdeen pax , who knows ?
