May be true of SmartLynx (depends which version!), but Freebirds fleet compares with the Sunwing 738's

And isn't the issue with Sunwing as much to do with crew as the a/c. Single a/c bases are always more vulnerable to disruption, but then you have the licenceing issues around Canadian a/c - smaller pool of replacements avaolable.

If a crew goes sick at Norwich running a A320 you have to reposition one of the spare 738s with full crew, not as easy as sending a taxi with just crew members or parts with an engineer who doesn't work on an Airbus routinely. I think one of the 320s ended up at Luton towards the end of the summer season last year because it was easiler to keep it going from there. Maybe they have learned and will keep any leased 320s at bigger bases where disruption can be managed better.

Plus I do believe at NWI at least KLM engineering look after the sunwing b738 during the time they are based there

You never mentioned what date you are flying? TOM4532 seems to be a B738 in May & October, June-September, a B787 currently, subject to last minute changes.

Could anyone by any chance create a 7 day view of the TUI flight programme at EMA?

Thanks for that. I saw it was an A321 on another website on 30/06/23, which is why I came here to double check. I guess google flights is more reliable?

https://info.flightmapper.net/flight...date=2023-6-30

This is where I saw it as an A321.

That's not a timetable, it's a hack of the reservation system, done by those who believe the only reason for looking is to buy tickets. It only works for one route, one way, at a time, and it seems doesn't show flights which are fully booked.

TUI's marketing is very sales driven and aims at keeping things simple to understand... many (but not all) of their customers do not fly regularly and struggle to follow the intricacies of air transport. It's why people often book package holidays - somebody else does the thinking for them.

One should not expect the same level of sophistication of the average TUI customer when looking at a TUI website as a person who spends hours with an OAG timetable

Which is sort of the objective. Why would an airline spend money providing anything else?

What I wrote earlier was the diplomatic version of my thoughts. Now for the more "direct" version.

Large numbers of TUI customers struggle to understand a timetable or otherwise find it difficult to comprehend. If TUI put out a timetable on their website with full information, plenty of TUI customers will get confused and upset, and then not make a booking or even complain. For mass market communication, finesse and subtlety is not the name of the game. Better that TUI keep things really simple and make their website the equivalent of words with no more than 2 syllables
