does anyone have any insight - are the models totally interchangeable (I’d read cabin crew could swap between them, is it the same for pilots following its reentry into service? ) or is the max taking a break from newcastle.
Not sure there is a conscious decision to withdraw them from NCL. They are all heavily rotated and dependent on maintenance requirements. I have seen pilots comment on handling if both so suspect interchangeable for most now with preseason update training

I have a recollection that it's partly to do with BRS giving an environmental discount to it's airlines, hence why all of BRS Tui short haul fleet are Max's. Money talks!

Thanks for the comments above.

one of the swap outs appeared to cause maximum disruption to the passengers by diverting TUMJ to EMA on its return to NCL. While I appreciate most won’t look at FR24 or these forums so will be none the wiser that wouldn’t be my chosen end to a holiday - bus up the M1/A1 in the early hours!!

That was a diversion due to fog, not an operational change.

Ah, that would make sense! Thanks. Driving up the a69 early yesterday morning it was just clearing.

Do you know why TUMJ didn’t return then? Nb one of my child hood dream jobs was to work on airline ops hence the questions - just curious!! The BRS comment makes sense as that’s where TUMW ended up.

If it fits into the EMA programme, why create more disruption?

but TAWJ had to position up to NCL instead of TUMJ and EMA wasn’t a max base before? Assume there are good reasons for it just wondered what they be..

And there was I thinking Newcastle and the aircraft both had CAT 3 capabilities.

Looking at fr24, it was the only diversion from
NCL that morning - all other 737-800’s managed it 🤔

Can I be the first to break the good news that MAX G-TUMJ is back at NCL?

Random spotter question but what is the difference between a TUI Extra Space and a TUI Extra Legroom seat. The extra space are slightly cheaper but don’t appear to be exit seats

“Extra legroom seats are just standard seats with slightly more seat pitch. Anyone can sit in them. Extra space seats are generally exit seats, and as such come with seating restrictions”

Extra space means no one in front of you but not necessarily extra legroom like a bulkhead seat, extra legroom is exactly that seats with a bigger pitch including exit rows.

Hope it's not like other "extra legroom" seats I have encountered on the 787, charging extra for them, where the window (actually there isn't one) seat is squashed in by the inwards bulge in the cabin wall lining which surrounds the door frame, plus in the absence of drop-down table trays from the seat in front, they are in thicker armrests, reducing the seat cushion width even further. Such seats should have a reduction in cost, not an increase, and come as an annoying surprise to any who have paid more for them.
