I see the 763's are still getting quite a bit of use to Cape Verde, Tenerife and even Alicante in the Winter schedule. The latter surprises me.

Yes, it was incorrect. the 763s are on the seat maps for S23 right up to October. Mainly Cape Verde and some Mid / short haul.

Retiring after Summer 23 has ended.

I think there are two off to Adu Dhabi now. With the local airline being very busy with an event currently I sure they have cheap capacity for accepting any engineering work.
With one 787 still in storage in US desert sunshine, this should some up current demand.
The 787 does still demand alot of work to keep airworthy.
Can't confirm though whether these are short term or planned leases.

No it's not the norm, I've never known so many long haul subcharters esp in November which is traditionally a quiet month. But at present lots of mros are very very busy and there are issues everywhere with manpower availability. I suspect that they've had to take the hangar slots than they can get rather than ones they'd choose. It would always usually be 1 in 1 out.

Covid messed up maintenance planning, which is based on hours and cycles. Some aircraft didnít fly for a year, now most aircraft are due C-checks at the same time. Prolonged storage also resulted in issues such as corrosion, which extended hangar time during overhauls and further disrupted the maintenance schedule.

Better to do it October and November when there are gaps in the schedule, than mid-Summer or December onwards when entire lines of flying would need to be cancelled or subbed out. Some aircraft were done in May/June.

Airlines like BA were able to absorb the majority of the maintenance bottleneck because the resumption of all of their routes has been staggered, so thereís been natural gaps in the schedule. However I believe even they have at least two 777s in ďstorageĒ awaiting hangar slots.

Hi,

Have TUI flights booked for Xmas, have booked extra legroom seats on 737 in row 17, 4 of us in party so prefer to be in single row. Rows 3,4,5 only have legroom one side so cant all be on same row.

I have read that 737-800 doesn't have extra legroom on rows 17/18 (only 3,4,5) but 737Max does. Flight is TOM6620, anyway of checking which type it is? If we've paid for legroom but end up on 737-800 with std seats do we get a refund of legroom charge?

Rows 17 and 18 are extra legroom seats across both the MAX and -800 fleets.

If for some reason you donít get the extra legroom seat you booked of course you are entitled to a refund. Mention it to the cabin crew and they can often sort the refund on the spot.

I can confirm that row 17/18 across ALL 737s have extra leg room! 👍🏼

Last year a kind member posted the S22 Schedule for TUI. Is there a similar for S23? Mainly interested on 767/787 doing Short Haul.

Indeed. That was a really useful post. Be great to see that for S23.

BHX Summer 2023

Only checked the BHX base for summer 2023 so far

currently BHX base is showing 11 aircraft, 1 B789, 2 B788's, 3 B737 Maxs, 3 B738's, 2 A320's

1 B788 does go to Bristol Wednesday-Thursday, to operate their CUN & MLB Flights, but the 787 flights are as follows:-

Monday:... MEL (long haul 789), DLM x2, AYT & ACE
Tuesday:... MBL (long haul 789), PUJ (long haul), PMI, SID
Wednesday:... CUN (long haul 789), PMI, PFO
Thursday:... MEL (long haul 789), DLM, PFO
Friday:... PUJ (long haul 788), AYT (789), BOJ (789), TFS, DLM
Saturday:... MBJ (long haul 789), CUN (long haul 788), PMI, SID
Sunday:... CUN (long haul 789), MEL (long haul 788), AGP, LCA

The 2 based A320's are show as SmartLynx Estonia aircraft.

However still early days, TUI will almost certainly update their summer timetables between now and May.
