In case of disruption all the train operating companies recognise each others tickets

Correct - but they would need to buy a ticket from TUI like everyone else.

A bit different from Ďrecognising each otherís ticketsí - those days of honour and trust between certain airlines has long gone.

Curiosity post, please delete if not allowed. Anyone know what's up with DRTB? Looks like it's tech in CFU following LS111 and DRTW was sent from BHX to pick to collect the GLA pax. Weird flight, cruised mainly at 25/28K all the way. Was tracking it as I'm due on it in coming weeks so curiosity got the better of me.

It had an intermittent autopilot issue on leaving Glasgow. They initially stopped their climb at FL250 to discuss with engineering whether to turn back or not. Autopilot started working again so they continued to Corfu. In the mean time, a replacement aircraft was dispatched to pick up the inbound passengers.

Thanks for the info. Curiosity satisfied.

A bit different from ‘recognising each other’s tickets’ - those days of honour and trust between certain airlines has long gone.

Yes - in far gone by days of charter airlines and tour operators we once had a very nice arrangement at the airports called ''mutual aid''
Here in the case of Tech problems ATC or strikes, or passengers needing to go home early for instance - if there were empty seats then each of us would accept (usually without any fee) the other carriers or operators ticket - In those days if you had a charter ticket from Gatwick to Palma you could basically go on and ask anyone if there were problems and get a seat on them if one was free.

We had 2 very tech Tristars one Friday night sitting at Gatwick both going to Athens - both full 400 pax each and both delayed for 12 hours.
we found loads of seats on all the other airlines going out that night (Friday night ATH was very popular back then) KT DA AE BIA AMBER BY MON AMM and even BA had two scheduled night flights a 737 and a 757 that were not full and the BA Duty Officer she was superb in filling up every seat for us...She even held the 757 for a while to get everyone checked in
We got away as many pax as we could (about 200 or more) many who were due to get on 0700 Ferries out of Piraeus to the Cyclades saving them a days wait at ATH (and us having to get Hotac for them)

That is how the Mutual Aid system worked - which it did very well....

Given the reduced number of destinations available, I'm surprised services to places like Mykonos haven't been stepped up. J2 only fly from MAN twice a week with hefty fares. Santorini only 3 times a week. Are these places slot constrained ?
Mykonos has lost the MAN-JMK twice weekly from BA Cityflyer & also no Thomas Cook- so Would of thought Greek Islands are if anything, underserved this year?

Do you mean the airports?

I'm hearing Jet2 are about to drop 100 pilots

The constraint is far more likely to be accommodation - or at least affordable accommodation - as neither JMK or JTR have endless bed stock. I'd be surprised if slot constraints prevented more flights, not least because the aircraft aren't working as hard as in a normal summer so there would likely be flex in the schedule to accept whatever slots were on offer if you had to.

Yes, but it's the same 102 pilots announced in June. It's not another 102 pilots in August.

They are recycling the same story but its been updated after BALPA have tried their best with Jet2.
