Seems to be something going on with Sanford flights in 2021. Was due to fly from Bristol in August next year but flights seem to have been reduced to only one week of the month according to the timetable (and not the dates we booked). Seems similar is going on from other airports and months as well.

Are these dates no longer showing in the timetable likely to be cancelled? Anyone know whatís going on?

On TUI Holidays booking engine your full flight details come up with your holiday search, and Dreamliner flights are usually highlighted, along with the times and Flight Nos.

TBH if any charter holidays as soon as next summer to Florida will happen is still anyone's guess.
I note you are booked and have BRS-SFB flights which have now seemingly disappeared.
Your best bet is to call your Travel Agent, and/or TUI if you booked direct, to confirm what is going on, and have you been rebooked, or is your holiday now cancelled...

My understanding was that SFB is being withdrawn and TUI will now fly into Melbourne Orlando airport down the coast but not until 2022.
This change was to better serve TUI's Marella Cruise ship passengers joining.
I doubt that sadly many cruise ships will be running either next summer.

I doubt anyone will know that publicly just now and until shortly before. February is fast approaching and in the current climate seems ambitious. But the Canary islands have been on and off so maybe still a chance for CV

I did just call TUI but they say there is no issue. It’s all very strange. Can’t now book the flight, it doesn’t appear in their timetable. Yet they are holding on to our money. I really do hope it’s still
going! (Covid considerations aside)

If itís any help, the same thing happened to me.

I was booked to CV in March and periodically checked the booking to see if flights were still operating. At some point last Autumn, I noticed I could no longer book my flights. I rang TUI and they said there was nothing to worry about.

6 weeks later, we got an email to say our flights had been cancelled and they gave us an option to rebook or cancel.

I would guess the booking engines change before people get official notification so this could be the same for you.

In our case, holidays were still on offer but the frequency of flights per week was being scaled back so we could still have gone if we changed our dates by a day or two.

I believe a lot of the Florida flights in July and August are fully booked already, hence you cannot book them. The Florida program for the entire Summer season is 50% booked, so it would make sense that a few of the July and August peak dates were already sold out.

Florida, Lapland and Ski holidays are three destinations where the majority of customers decided to re-book for the following year instead of taking a refund.

As always, depends on the government. If the government don't advise against all but essential travel by February, it'll probably go ahead as planned.

Cape Verde has had a fairly high COVID rate, more a victim of it's tiny population than anything. However country-wide rates have been coming down, and the most important islands for tourism, Sal and Boa Vista, are COVID free. Boa Vista hasn't recorded a positive case since December 5th and Sal hasn't recorded a case since December 2nd. https://covid19.cv/

Noticed a lot of TUI (UK) doing many B787 flights to places like Dallas, Detroit & Mexico City are these passenger charters or bulk cargo flights?

TUI have been doing a lot of cargo flights recently.I think its mostly for the motor industry.

TUI have been operating a lot of freight charters with pretty much their whole 787 fleet, more than one on some days, mainly with the -9 fleet.

Routes operated include;

Frankfurt-Greenville
Frankfurt-Mexico City
Frankfurt-Seoul
Stuttgart-Guardalajara
Stuttgart-Mexico City
Stuttgart-Detroit
Amsterdam-Dallas/Ft Worth


While these flights continue, In recent days they have also been operating food/goods import charters to the UK as a result of the Channel port blockades.

G-TUIC has operated 5 Amsterdam-London Heathrow rotations over the last 3 days positioning back to Gatwick from Heathrow at lunchtime today.

I am looking to travel BHX-ACE in mid feb and TUI website is still showing two flights a week as available. Given the current situation does anyone have any inside info on if these flights are likely to be operating? Cheers

TUI announced that all holidays flying from England are cancelled until 12 FEB in keeping with the UK Gov.'s lockdown in force in England reportedly until 21 FEB, which incudes NO international travel (holidays abroad) is permitted, so you will not be able to travel.
TUI seems to be doing cancelling holidays on a rolling basis so that is why you can still see flights on sale after then.
The Canary Islands has now been added to ALL UK travel corridors banned from Monday.

Both Jet2 and Easy Jet have cancelled all holidays until the end of March.

I cannot foresee even Easter holidays as operating in any shape or form.

However when we are all let off the lead (safely I hope) then I can foresee on of the biggest travel sales boom ever seen.
The demand is enormous.

Thanks for the info rog.
I suspected that that would be the case but after seeing that FR are still operating a very limited service I thought there may be a slim chance. For info, I am not crazy and expecting a holiday in the middle of a pandemic. I live in Lanzarote.

Hi all.

Boeing currently has assigned a 787-9 to TUI, line number 1102. Does anyone have any info on whether TUI will accept this new jet (G-TUIP) due to the current pandemic or will it be NTU? It’s going to be built in Charleston. 😁
