Hopefully by the end of May, things should be back on track.
Fleet Update:-

738 - G-TAWK re-entered service 5th May, G-TAWO just ferried to LGW, so should re-enter service today/tomorrow, G-TAWV, re-entered service 7th May, - just leaves G-TAWS out of service currently at St Athan's after Sunwing lease
7M8 - G-TUMN still flying for Sunwing, due back around 18th May, G-TUMU, ferried to Brussels 28th April for
maintenance
788 - G-TUIB at Luton being converted to short haul.
789 - G-TUIJ is in Abu Dhabi for maintenance since 17th April, SE-RFZ at Luton since 20th April

Disappointing to discover TUI are pulling long haul flights in 2024 from Bristol. No reasons given beyond ‘we’ve reviewed our programme’, but we’ve had to swap to Gatwick.

Perhaps more profitable elsewhere on currently tighter margins? Suspect BRS has always been a bit marginal so now first to be culled, but could equally be reinstated.

Just wondering if it is because the 2 767 at MAN are going this winter and the 787s are needed at MAN

More likely a realisation of the cost and complexity of positioning 787s about with crews chasing them across the countryside. Even if slightly revenue negative then the cost savings from all of that lesser complexity must be huge.

Didn’t BRS have a 787 based last year operating short haul in between the Melbourne and Cancun runs?

Yes, with LGW/BHX and MAN based pilots, all very expensive. There are no BRS based 787 pilots.....

Anyone know why they have decided not to take their last 787-9? Very odd decision considering they seem to have an aircraft shortage and are losing two 767s. It’s not like they can get more 787s in the future any time soon with the huge waiting list. Very odd.

Bullish talk from the new CEO of AGS Airports in an interview with The Herald.

For Europe, links to the big European hubs of CDG and IST with Air France and Turkish and their networks would be great boost for GLA. Perhaps a summer seasonal to MAD with Iberia would be an added bonus too. The other priority would be to try and get Ryanair back with a significant route network.

Of the US3, United and Delta would be the best bets in attempting to restart scheduled US routes at GLA. Although, right now, they seem to be content with serving Scotland (and Northern/North East England) at EDI. Perhaps there might be an opportunity with jetBlue.

Hopefully this isn't just some hot bluster and another false dawn for GLA.

Mr Cliffe said of Glasgow: “I think it is a fabulous city and I hadn’t visited enough before I arrived. I think there are just huge opportunities to grow that and develop it still further.”

Referring to his ambitions to build routes, he said: “North American connections we will target coming back, European paired destinations we will target coming back.”

He flagged potential for new services to Germany, the north of Italy, and Spanish cities such as Madrid, focused on “real business and trade” rather than the leisure market.

Noting recent successes for the airport with package holiday operator TUI, which is basing an additional two planes at the airport from summer next year, and Jet2, Mr Cliffe added: “We serve the leisure market extremely well. I think what I am describing…is our connectivity to support economic development and growth right across the region.”

They said in a press release or results recently that long haul is still lagging behind in recovery so perhaps this has something to do with it.

Forgive my ignorance but why is SE-RFZ doing only MAN-CUN.

Why doesn’t it fly various routes like the other Dreamliners? I’m assuming there is a reason

Has EDI short season CUN and MLB been ditched too for S24?

G-FDZR which was withdrawn and returned to its lessor in 2021 then went onto Fly Gangwon has been repainted back into the TUI livery in Ostrava last week with the UK flag next to its temporary registration. Planespotters.net has it due again as G-FDZR

All due to post-Brexit complexities - SE-RFZ uses Nordic-based pilots on and a relatively small pool of UK-based cabin crew who have dispensation to fly under the Swedish AOC. So the flight deck & cabin crew are not 100% interchangeable with the G-Reg 787 fleet. Therefore the most efficient way of using the aircraft is to use on the Cancun route which operates up to 6 x weekly - means the crew are only stopping in Cancun one night and there is one pool of crew allocated to this specific route which eliminates a lot of complexity. This year the route runs 6 x times weekly rather than daily, no flight on Tuesday to provide ‘catch up time’, maintenance input & deep cleaning.

Is there a reason why the aircraft was switched from the UK register to the Swedish register (was previously G-TUIK) rather than just going over to the Nordics as a G-reg in winter like the others do?

I’m assuming TUI UK needs the additional support of Nordic pilots (and not only the aircraft itself) during the summer.
