About the Ryanair winter schedule. The plan for EMA this winter just gone was to operate a part-time base between Friday and Monday only, but with the full lockdown even that didn't happen.

The same still applies for what's currently available till Jan'22 (if you look at the few flights available Tuesday to Thursday over the winter they're all non-based aircraft). I suspect this is only ever a temporary situation with reduced demand/crewing, so I'd imagine this is being reviewed for Jan'22 onwards, hence no flights currently available to book beyond then.

Seems like DHL are basing some extra 767s & U.K. registered 777f’s for 2022 operating to America & Asia

That's as maybe, and I do echo your frustrations, however in this case, unless I've been dragged in by the marketing spin, it would appear to be a case of the ill wind being good for EMA and its cargo operation, so perhaps as the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining. Perhaps I may make so bold as to suggest this must be an example of that somewhat illusive beast, a benefit of Brexit - for EMA if not for DHL!

Big picture on this. No one loses their job. The same ac fly the same routes using the same pilots although it gets split between Europe short haul and EMA long haul. More ac (jobs) come to the uk airline. Whether it’s a benefit of Brexit or just an inevitable result remains to be seen.

EasyJet

New route to BFS starting 9 July, 4x weekly until end of October.

This will be the first time EZY have operated passenger services from EMA in more than 11 years.

The newly announced EZY domestic program additions being described as "a last roll of the dice" by The Independent to utilize at least part of their remaining UK fleet.

It must be a very busy route for DHL as I have seen information from Tui flightdeck crew that have been allocated these routes to advise that they can only bring small carry on bag due to weight restrictions which is a bit problematic with the 100ml liquid ban in UK and also needs clothes for night out in Miami

737James. No idea where that info will have come from - we’ve never had a weight limit on luggage on our long haul routes. Neither has the 100ml thing been an issue as our luggage goes in the hold. My guess is that after the first couple of crews have been all will become much clearer.

It will be a baggage handling issue. Large suitcases need to be checked in, screened and must be placed in the hold. If this isn’t possible crew must take their own bags onboard and get them through security. Some crew channels can’t process large suitcases. It won’t be an issue weight wise providing the crew can carry it themselves.

All true, so this will depend on how the crews go to the ac. Freight crews at EMA don’t go through the pax terminal but via separate security access points. After screening, luggage goes in the back of secure vans with no ability to access them so that they can then go to the ac hold. I have no idea what method the tui crews will use.

And a fine looking machine as it pushed back next to us. Welcome to pure freight Tui peeps. No cabin crew, no pax, make your own coffee!

Theyve been running pure freight for months now, I'll bet the drivers have even mastered brewing up for themselves by now

Crew luggage on TUI flights usually goes in Hold 5 of the 787 (rear left) but we have been advised that Hold 5 will also have freight in it (non palletised) so there is nowhere for checked bags to go. That is why we have to take a small bag with enough for 1 night out and all liquids less than 100ml. All very possible.
Still working out how to heat the meals using the ovens!

Ah. Good luck with the luggage - sounds crazy on an ac that big! Switch oven on, put food in, take out, eat.
