Also to return the thousands of passengers already in resorts, otherwise they would have further problems I guess. Our return last week (Privilege Style B757) came out empty and very strange seeing an aircraft arrive and no unloading of baggage or passengers - quick turnaround though

Just a normal diversion due to weather (crosswinds) at Bristol, and then maybe low fuel hence the 7700 squawk? Aircraft G-TUIC is now currently on route BHX-CUN, so no tech issue with aircraft, and presumably the passengers were just bussed down to Bristol. Replacement aircraft G-TUIE operated the BRS-MLB flight with just over a 2 hours delay.

Does anyone know what aircraft is operating todays TOM643 AYT-LGW service? Due in at 5:45pm, but it's delayed leaving Turkey, I just wondered if the aircraft has actually arrived in Turkey yet.

Maintenance at Norwich

G-TAWY positioned to Norwich earlier this week for maintenance with KLMuk Engineering. G-TAWX was there last month. Does anybody have any idea what works are being carried out? Iím guessing possibly c-checks.

I believe it (G-TUIF) is still at LTN getting reconfigured. Only G-TUIH is active and in S/H configuration currently and that has been operating from MAN for the past few weeks.

The short haul B788 currently operates to Orlando Melbourne at 0915 on Monday, with the long haul B789 operating to Arrecife at 11:30 until 11th July, then it changes from the 18th July, when the B789 will operate Melbourne at 11:30, the B788 to Arrecife (07:55) & Bourgas (18:55)

G-TUMP entered service at Gatwick on Saturday, and has flown to Gerona, Palma, Rhodes, Heraklion, and Larnaca, but now appears to have gone tech in Larnaca in the early hours of Monday morning after only 26 hours of flying for TUI, not a very good start for this airframe.

Meanwhile B738 G-TAWO is still at Prestwick being repaired (last passenger flight 26th May), B788 G-TUIF still at Luton on maintenance, (last passenger flight 18th May), & B788 G-TUII has flown to Amman on the 15th June also for maintenance.

I'm sure he will be great but always nervous when a bean counter takes over.

G-OBYK B763 currently holding south of MAN returning/diverting from its planned MAN-GVC service.(90 minutes hold so far), Was this aircraft tech overnight in Dubrovnik the other day? Getting a replacement aircraft & crew for a return Boa Vista won't be easy at short notice.

I've flown early versions of B763 not fitted with fuel dump - is this the case here?

Fuel jettison fitted. Jettisons from centre tank only which wouldnít have had any fuel in it for a flight to BVC.

taken from the Aviation Herald:-

A TUI Airways Boeing 767-300, registration G-OBYK performing flight BY-216 from Manchester,EN (UK) to Boa Vista (Cape Verde), was climbing out of Manchester's runway 23L when the crew stopped the climb at about FL130 after the left hand engine (CF6) had emitted a number of bangs and streaks of flames. The aircraft entered a hold at FL070 to burn off fuel and returned to Manchester for a safe landing on runway 23L about 2:40 hours after departure.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Manchester with the left hand engine doors opened about 7 hours after landing back.

Passengers reported there were 3 or 4 loud bangs and streaks of flame.

The airline reported the aircraft returned to Manchester due to a technical issue. The passengers will be put into hotels and the flight is to depart the next day as the aircraft can not land in Cape Verde in night conditions.
