thanks, next question! Given the seating capacity is the same and assume cabin crew can switch easily between them (And perhaps flight crew?) at the larger bases that have both types (including NCL during the summer) are they used interchangeably?

I donít work for TUI so Iím not sure. I would imagine that will probably end up being the case if a mix of types will be required at these bases during the summer (as is currently the case at LGW/MAN/BHX).

Hi I'm cc for TUI; for CC there is practically no difference between the MAX and NG other than a couple of safety equipment location differences which can be covered in an online training module. Seating layout is identical. For flight crew the two variants are totally interchangeable once some additional training on the Max has been completed. I'm not 100% but presume max a/c are being plotted into regional programmes in order to give flight crew at based regional stations opportunities to get increased exposure to it.

767
 
Just noticing on a booking for Easter next year (2023), that TUI are still showing the 767 as operating some flights.

Is this what people were expecting? I thought they would have all gone by then?

Do the medium hall 767s have PTVs?

Random one but Iíve booked a few flights with TUI out of NCL this year into REU and PMI.

On all 10 flights the last 4 rows are blocked off from reserving. Am I entirely unlucky or are they just not accepting reservations for some reason for the rear of the plane?

I thought initially an equipment change but Iíd imagine the 737-8 (either TUI or sunwing) and the max would have the same rows?

They are blocked off to allow check in to be able to sort out any seating issues with families split up etc! Just enables flexibility.

Looks like TUIN is landing in the mid-Azores. Was on way to Bridgetown from LGW.

Unusual diversion!

Isnít it a (relatively common) recognised diversion airport?

Anyone know what short haul rotations the 787 will be doing from MAN this summer? Iíve tired googling it but it just brings up all the summer plans for S21 not S22.

Smudge's Lot 8th Feb 2022 12:32

I don't think they have an idea what the 787s are doing next week, let alone for the summer!

Presumably G-TUIPís delivery isnít imminent as itís been ferried from Charleston to Victorville?

That's correct, went to Victorville yesterday.

schedules all shows on google flights ok, I found this one straight away!!! :-

Monday July 11th : MAN-DLM TOM336 6:30PM - 12:50AM Boeing 787


Mr @ Spotty M 8th Feb 2022 21:18

No B787s around the world are imminent delivery, unless they are second hand.

All completed airframes since Aug last year require rectification work. Correct?

Mr @ Spotty M 9th Feb 2022 06:31

Yes, but as yet nothing approved by the FAA on what needs doing.

Everything alright at TUI? Im going on holiday from Manchester in a few weeks and cannot help but see they are suffering delays from Manchester on a good chunk of flights, especially the long haul services (I'll be using LH). If this is February then I feel sorry for them come July. Weekends I ignore as Ski season brings about delays to flights to destinations due to volume of traffic heading down to the alps.

Looking at the MAN thread I think the issue is more the capacity of the handling agents than TUI. I must admit when I went to PUJ in December and was looking at the flight in the weeks prior, it was consistently an hour late as were most of the long haul flights, but as I say, I think this is a MAN/handling agent issue as opposed to a TUI issue.

SWBKCB 17th Feb 2022 12:11

or put another way, it's a TUI issue cos they don't pay their handling agents enough.

LBAflyer22 17th Feb 2022 12:32

Ahhh seems to put me at ease slightly. However maybe it's time TUI did what jet2 did many years ago and self handle completely at big stations like MAN BHX LGW where they've got ultimate control over everything. Small bases such as NCL, DSA, EMA don't seem to have much of an issue.
