cheers

Tends to spend most of its time each summer in Belfast, I have seen it twice already this year in Belfast purely by travelling close to the airport however it is elsewhere now. It's really just luck of a bunch. All 4 frames were in Belfast for a period last year.

I have noticed TUI tend to position the aircraft to wherever the problem is whereas often Thomas Cook bus the passengers wherever the spare is, if it is fairly close or logistically possible of course (crew hours etc)

Thanks, reason I asked was they have sent a couple of B787s to fill in over here, most recently G-TUIJ yesterday and felt it was an awful waste of resources. Last year they send a B738 mostly.

Looks like itís all gone wrong at EMA today for TUI have had a 757 covering for a tech 737 then the replacement 737 they brought in from LGW to cover Larnarca went sick so now a 25hr delay on that flight.

Does anyone know why G-TAWA operated the following yesterday?

STN-FAO-STN-GLA-CIA-PMI-ABZ-STN

Seems very bizarre to me, since when did TUI fly to CIA?

Although, on Saturday I believe the outbound GLA-PMI and inbound PMI-ABZ were both cancelled (with the aircraft simply staying at GLA and then positioning back to ABZ at night) so perhaps this was some attempt to operate those flights? Doesnít explain the CIA routing though and a Titan 767 had to be drafted in to cover the STN schedule...

G-TAWA routed from GLA to CIA then to PMI to cover for the GLA-PMI on the previous day. It had to go via CIA to drop off passengers who should have been on the Marella Explorer cruise ship (Marella owned by TUI) who had to miss the first part of their cruise and join the ship at first port of call. It then continued to PMI with the other passengers who were just going to Majorca.

Ah I see, that makes sense, thanks. Do you have any idea why the flights were cancelled the previous day?

I don't know whether the French industrial action at the weekend played a part but TUI seemed to have some disruption at Bristol. On Sunday afternoon one of the two based B738s operated the Heraklion flight several hours late. The morning Malaga on Sunday normally operated by one of the two based B757s returned in mid evening (several hours late) as a B 787-9, G-TUIJ. FR24 appreared to suggest the outbound 757 went to LGW from BRS where seemingly it was swapped for the 787-9.

Today FR24 shows G-TUIJ operating from BRS on a delayed flight to Larnaca that should have left yesterday afternoon.

G-TUIK operating Man-IBZ today, is it covering while G-OBYG is down for checks? Last year the 3 based 767s seemed to cover each other so I was wondering how they would cover this year now they are down to 2.

OBYH and OBYK are still in Scandinavia.

They will remain in Scandinavia all summer.

Danny G 14th Jun 2018 20:16

Yes just F and G this year whcih made me think the 789 was covering while G was in Luton on whay Im guessing was planned maintainance/check.

Pity, I've been waiting to see OBYK in the UK.

ROC10 15th Jun 2018 00:06

Is it just me who finds it strange that YK was transferred from Nordic to UK but hasn’t flown from the UK and is set to remain in Scandinavia? Also, YH has been working pretty much constantly from Scandinavia for a while now, I’d say defineitly at least one year, possibly two years.

And yeah, I guess so, YG wasn’t at LTN for long though. When G-TUIJ arrived back from Dubai it did a couple of l/h flights and then seemed to be the backup s/h aircraft covering 738/752 flights from DUB and BRS. I think they have a fair bit of spare capacity with the Dreamliners just now but I would imagine they’ll surely be more fully-utilised in the high season? Until the other day, LGW had three 789s and MAN had one but it now seems to be two at each.

Danny G 15th Jun 2018 10:34

Is one of the 900s a spare to cover any tech issues this summer?

ROC10 15th Jun 2018 20:15

Bit of a long shot but does anyone have a way of knowing where the specific frames will be based and when, or is this not at all possible?

Thanks!

EK77WNCL 16th Jun 2018 02:52

ROC10, yeah it will be known internally where frames are planned to be based, and when. But as always in aviation this is subject to change and difficult to predict more than a few days/weeks out. 99% of the time things work out as planned and airframes are cycled through the network and swapped around down route as planned. But when it goes wrong... It really does tend to go rather wrong!!!

Civagiarn 16th Jun 2018 16:00

Last night BY2956 MAN-BOJ was operated by 787-9 rather than 787-8. Will the flight continue to be operated by the 787-9? BY4754 LGW-BOJ has been 787-9 from the start of the season, which is also an upgrade from the scheduled 787-8.

Thanks for your reply!

Yeah I know what you mean with things going wrong lol!

I wonder if anyone from TUI on here has access to this info. As I said originally, itís a bit of a long shot but essentially Iíd like to know what frame Iíll be on in a couple of weeks. Currently an older 737 is based and Iíd like one with Sky Interior... one can only hope!

Some serious delays today...

BY526 GLA-DLM was 8.5 hours late departing GLA as G-BYAW had to be drafted in from MAN (which G-OBYF ended up covering for there) due to GLA's G-CPEU not moving until tonight's BOJ which still left a bit late. G-BYAW due back in GLA from DLM with a delay of over 8.5 hours.

BY7144 BHX-NAP on G-OOBN actually arrived early but the aircraft then remained at NAP for over 11 hours before operating the return to BHX which is now due around 10 hours late (G-BYAY had to be drafted in from LGW to cover).

To top it all off, BY192 MAN-CUN has just left MAN with a significant delay of 14 hours so far. G-TUIH was already late operating MRU-LGW and then had to position up to MAN presumably since G-TUIJ hasn’t moved today.

Danny G 19th Jun 2018 20:10

BY193 got back into MAN at 7.45 this evening TUIH looks like it still has not moved.
