aircraft 2: TOM4230/1 LGW-PMI-LGW 06:15-09:30/10:45-12:10, then TOM4248/9 LGW-RHO-LGW 15:25-21:25/22:40-00:50

for some reason the aircraft operating back into LGW on TOM4231, did not fly again unitl the following day, maybe the aircraft went tech as it was getting ready to operate TOM4248, so they "pinched" the aircraft that flew on TOM4263, to operate the TOM4248, with a delay of a few hours. Then they had all afternoon/night to fix the tech aircraft, so it was ready for Wednesday. This happens all the time, these events happen!
Nice summary! Hopefully no more barking at the mirror…

I am aware of all TUI schedules and which flts follow on also the requirements for repositioning of base changes normally done on the away leg. I also understand that a/c may develope unservicabilities and need extra work. Most times this is done within schedule parameters. I am also aware of major servicing carried out in AUH or TAI, resprays in TFW. If the airframe was not available and had to be changed why did'nt someone say so and not subject me to a barrage of hearsay remarks from those that could not give a difinitive answer. I do not reply to some quotes in this forum as I do not believe I had the info available and was not going to give false or offensive replies.

Anyone got the inside track on the progress of the Dreamliner paint jobs? Which have been done / what the schedule is? Only seen TUIB looking super smart so far..but I might not be looking hard enough 😂

I think it may have been the tone of your original post, which was one of superiority, and the fact that there were so many (what should have been) obvious possibilities and unknowns that it was slightly ridiculed.

Agree. Your underlying question was valid, it was the tone suggesting TuI had cocked up, suggesting they had made a mistake that prompted my response. You say you don’t post false messages, but I would suggest what happened wasn’t a cock-up and rather a proactive response to an issue. Ironically meaning you may have posted a falsehood….

Not got the “inside track” but TUIA/B/C have all been painted. I believe the rest are to be done during W24/25 but I guess we’ll see whether that happens. The older -9s will soon need done too.

wonder if there will ever be a Max-10 in TUI colours. Was it a specific order, or just an option for conversion?

LGW, EZY diverted a few to LTN, other airlines sent their planes to STN & BHX, refuel and head back to LGW later.
A TUI NCL based 738 went to LTN before going to LGW to cover a late running flight.

Why was a Max8 flying Corfu to Newcastle diverted to Stansted last night? I believe it was a newly delivered one too.

ATC restrictions. Nothing to do with TUI or the aircraft. Other airlines also affected.

And it was G-TUMA - not a recent delivery

TUKF is in all-white with TUI titles. This is an older example so doesn’t have the Sky Interior but was fully refurbished prior to entering service I believe.

TUKM/O are ex-other TUI group airlines and are in a (very faded) all-blue livery with old TUI Nordic titles, albeit the “Nordic” is patched over.

TAWY looks worse externally. That is also ex-Nordic but they have completely removed the old Nordic titles and just added the big “TUI” at the front. It’s very patchy indeed.

The latter three all have the Sky Interior so it really is just their external appearance that’s the issue. No worse than the 787s though.
Just bringing this point back to the top. With lots of second hand arrivals recently, what is the state of play with the TUK* series with regards to paint jobs and interiors?

TUKF is the tidiest-looking TUI 737 I've seen in a long time. Just one shade of white all over, no patchwork appearance and clean as a new pin.

All current 737 fleet repainted and wearing the current scheme except G-TUKF and TUKR which are all white with TUI titles.

G-TUKM joined Fly4 so repainted but not in TUI scheme even though still flying for them indirectly.

TUI have chartered a Titan A321 freighter G-POWW to deliver delayed bags from the Manchester power failure debacle on Sunday. It was noted yesterday operating with a TOM callsign to various Greek destinations from Manchester and is doing the same again today. Who pays for something like this? Surely it's Manchester airports problem so TUI shouldn't have to foot the bill?

Tui deserve some credit for that IMHO. Good to see them dealing with the Manchester power outage crisis with the customer in mind. From what I’ve understood no flights were cancelled. That wouldn’t have been cheap to organise either.

I believe there is a Swiftair ATR-72 on baggage reconciliation duties as well, though can't confirm whether this is specifically for TUI or for some other operator.
