Not to turn it into jet2 v TUI. But Birmingham they have 4 smart lynx aircraft which lets face it are not the best ACMI operator.

And Bristol they use Swissport for underwing activities. Who are crap at the best of times and even worse at the worst of times.

Swissport are giving TUI a terrible terrible service at Manchester. I hope they don’t get a penny from TUI for the crap service they’ve provided.

Yes, indeed bring back Britannia!

There were 13 of us that returned from a 43hr delay (or cancelled) flight on 27th May.
3 weeks later the compensation arrived for 11 of us...2 of our party haven't received the compo, apparently due to an on-going issue concerning the TUI compensation form not recognising some of the flight manifests (according to the TUI response on Facebook Messenger).

As for the vouchers, they haven't arrived at all yet for any of us!
How many days after arrival back in the UK should these be received?

* Phone calls - in a queue!
* FB Messenger - eventually get a response saying it's being worked on!
* TUI website - live chat always says agents are busy!
* Twitter - no response!

I assume going into the local TUI travel agents isn't an option?!

I don't want to do an X vs Y either, and have no connection with either, but it's very noticeable that Jet2, headed long term by Philip Meeson, exceptionally hands-on and knows what he wants in terms of a continuing business, organic growth, not hugely in hock to the banks, is a complete contrast to TUI, built up by buying up company after company with borrowed money that somehow has to be repaid, reporting to the Frankfurt and London stock exchanges, board wholly concentrated on share price, etc, etc.

I guess Cape Verde is more likely than Mexico but given many hotels are TUI/RIU; it won’t be easy for someone to come in and try their hand.

Thankfully, Jet2 are doing a great job in terms of offering and service to the main European resorts.
Yes TUI do have a firm foothold in Mexico with the RIU brand but there are so many other great hotels that we dont have access to because TUI focus most of their business onto their RIU and TUI Blue brands, at the expense of others. A good start point would be flight only, say 3 times a week to CUN, I know BA do it from LGW and the infastructure in Mexico can support it now with a lot of hotels including transfers to and from the airport. Heres hoping

I thought TUI sold the RIU brand a few years ago?

I think RUI is still exclusive to TUI from the UK but then again TUI have no competition on pacakge holidays in Mexico from anywhere in the UK except London so I may be wrong

I think they sold a minority stake of 21 Real Estate Hotels, they continue to have 50% of the running & marketing of the whole portfolio

Long shot but worth an ask….

BY2662 has been cancelled all through June. During this time TUI we’re still selling tickets for the 02/07 onwards when it was supposed to restart. Looking at it today it doesn’t look like it’s now restarting until the 16th…..

im booked on with my troop for the 30th, does anybody think this is likely to be back on at all over the summer?

I think 787 deliveries are still suspended.

Getting close to restarting though.

We seem to have been reading those same words since 2021.

Interesting discussion recently about how frequently TUI aircraft move around the bases during peak summer (ignoring leases). In the case of Newcastle, it would appear they don’t move much with their sole MAX (TUMJ) running the schedule now since late May - nearly two months without a change out.

Is this fairly normal do we know?

no insider knowledge but in the summer each aircraft seems to spend 2-3 months at NCL, so my guess is it will change soon! Reasons for changing seem to be varied. But as the aircraft usually just continues to fly from the next ‘base’ I wondered if it was a requirement by either the airliner or regulator for a different engineering team To take a look at it after it had been away from a main base for a while.

No regulatory requirement. Its just as and when circumstances require. Usually for a heavier line check, where there's no slot in the programme at NCL to perform it, it will swap to a base that does (or for a hangar check). Sometimes that can be months at 1 base, sometimes they swap more regularly. With more and more traditionally base maintenance tasks being done on the line these days then the time spent at any one base can get longer.

With the engine fire on A330 9H-CFS yesterday returning to MAN, that is another headache to fix?
Early PMI was canx.
