TUI Airways
 
Thomson has now officially changed over to TUI. All travel stores, aircraft, website have moved over to TUI, including the AOC.

clipstone1 19th Oct 2017 08:11

Such a shame to see the Thomson name vanish from the high street and everywhere else after 50+ years

:{

Same with loosing Britannia. Such a great British institution.

daz211 19th Oct 2017 18:04

Britannia should never have rebrand in the good old days of leasure travel Britannia was the premier carrier and had class now every charter/holiday airline/flight is the same shame things move on

787-9
 
TUI have been operating a couple of -9 variants of the 787 for a little while now. I was wondering if these are put at specific bases on set routes or if the 787 schedule is flexible across both variants?

Certainly when you book a flight, you only know you will be flying on a Dreamliner.

chaps1954 20th Oct 2017 07:14

They are Gatwick based at present

bjones4 20th Oct 2017 09:50

TUI do now let you select your seat at time of booking if you're in premium and for our flights to Cancun in September 2018 from Manchester we appear to have a 787-9 both ways so there's at least one outside Gatwick next year. (IIRC they do take delivery of TUIL and M next spring)

Vokes55 20th Oct 2017 15:53

The -9s do have their own line of flying, generally the high density routes from Gatwick to Cancun, MoBay and Sanford are almost all on the -9.

Not sure of the plans for the two new arrivals next year, I'd imagine three at Gatwick, one at Manchester. They're much more premium heavy than the -8s, so better suited to the LGW market.

LAX_LHR 20th Oct 2017 16:15

The -9 will do MJB/CUN/PUJ from MAN as those routes are more than capable of supporting the extra premium seats. When the -9 was used on its proving flights from MAN-MBJ. The extra premium seats were put on sale last minute and still sold out.

P330 20th Oct 2017 19:37

787-9
 
Thanks folks.

Off to CUN in March from MAN, so assuming from your replies we're more likely to be on an -8.

NorthEasterner 21st Oct 2017 08:15

Would TUI be interested in the 787-10? Or would that be too much capacity for them?

Plane.Silly 21st Oct 2017 10:32

Depends how much they value the extra 30-40 seats vs the extra millions of $$$ it'll cost. Personally, i think they may have their niche with the -8 and -9, so i can't see it, but the business case wouldn't bee too far off if the loads are consistently 95%+,

Summer 2018 NWI
 
Anyone know if Sunwings are being used next year from Norwich

NickBarnes 22nd Oct 2017 07:37

sunwing Mark

sparkie320 22nd Oct 2017 13:49

Cheers
maybe i get to grab C-FEAK this time, missed the only visit it made to Norwich whilst covering one of the others
and hope they dont brake so hard too

Gordon_uk3 22nd Oct 2017 14:15

Does anyone know when TUI start using their new Radio Callsign of TUI AIR?

Skipness One Echo 22nd Oct 2017 15:06

Why change that? Flybe are STILL using “Jersey”. Actually, they could easily change the callsign back to “Britannia”.

Una Due Tfc 22nd Oct 2017 15:18

The three letter designator TUI has the call sign "TUI jet" atm

oceanhawk 22nd Oct 2017 18:57

Tui
 
Tui air callsign to start being used on or around the first of November.

canberra97 22nd Oct 2017 19:10

As much as I feel sorry to see the Thomson brand name disappear after nearly 50 years and is now known as TUI but the times I have seen the name often incorrectly spelt as 'Thompson' on these and other forums has been so frustrating, I should imagine over time we're probably see posts with TIU.

Like Qantas being spelled "Quantas", or Stansted being spelled "Stanstead". Also the number of people who write "loose" instead of "lose" is enormous.

canberra97 22nd Oct 2017 23:43

I am with you there as those are other equally annoying spelling errors.

crewmeal 23rd Oct 2017 05:46

I can't get my head around the pronunciation of Tui, how you guys flying manage with 'foreign' ATC is going to be fun. But all is not lost

How To Pronounce TUI Travel

toledoashley 23rd Oct 2017 05:53

Two-ee (or at least that is the closest I can think of)

22/04 23rd Oct 2017 08:28

Touristic Union International wouldn't be as trendy would it- anyone else remember that on the side of chartered coaches meeting Germanair flights in the 70s.

I assume a direct lineage can be traced

clipstone1 24th Oct 2017 12:46

Absolutely the German tour operator just started using the acronym some years ago, which over the last 20 years has slowly spread around Europe with the acquisitions made by TUI AG (which was originally Preussag AG)

NickBarnes 26th Oct 2017 11:11

See the Winter 2018/19 flights are on sale, Notice the NWI - TFS has been reduced to once weekly but timings suggest the aircraft now originates in NWI with flights: NWI -TFS 10:25 - 14:55 TFS - NWI 16:05 - 20:35. Year round base on the cards?

gilesdavies 28th Oct 2017 11:46

Anyone know what is going on with BY6635 Palma to Cardiff operated by G-FDZW, has been routed to Luton...

When looking at routing on FR24, doesn't look like it diverted at last minute, and flew the usual hold pattern before touching down.

Currently showing as a three hour delay at Cardiff, but touched down about 1 hour late into Luton, from the Cardiff arrival time...

Jerry123 28th Oct 2017 13:58

I believe it was an aircraft change.

Yes not everyone is a teacher, obviously we aren't all up to you're a* grammar, who cares?🤣

chaps1954 29th Oct 2017 16:31

Was that G-OBYF last flight with TUI empty to Shannon this afternoon?

oldbalboy 29th Oct 2017 17:58

YE will be WFU from 31/10, but YF is remaining may have gone over for maintenance

StevieW 29th Oct 2017 18:44

I don't believe YE is being WFU, the 767s are due to be around for a few more years yet. It's off to Brussels on 1/11, one would assume a winter lease to TUI Belgium.

Much of the 767 maintenance is done in Shannon, and November is the ideal time between the end of the UK short haul Summer and the peak of the Nordic operations which the 767 will be deployed on during the winter.

CabinCrewe 29th Oct 2017 20:57

Wonder why TUI Luton cant do 767 maintenance?

sdh2903 29th Oct 2017 22:46

Perfectly capable just no room at the inn.

I'm sure it was YF I seen last Friday doing MAN to one of the canary islands.

StevieW 30th Oct 2017 09:12

Almost certainly - all three operate short haul from Manchester during the Summer until the end of October.

dmouse88 6th Nov 2017 11:37

Do we know what flights will be done by UK based TUI a/c, used on scandinavian flights during winter period Dec to Apr. According to flight mapper it looks like 3 787's and 2 767's, however with the flt's I am aware of it might be only 1 767. Any help would be appreciated.

MUFC_fan 6th Nov 2017 14:56

I believe the 787s are doing UK and Scandi mixed. All 5 767s are in Scandinavia though. YE/F/G/H/K.


All times are GMT. The time now is 17:56.
