The 320s have come from Smartlynx previously so possibly them again

Vokes55 18th Mar 2022 05:32

Looks like Smartlynx out of DSA and Avion Express and Titan out of LGW.

Assuming the first two can recruit any crew to fly the aircraft of course.

How many of the DSA and LGW based fleet is planned to be A320's?

does anyone know the plan for NCL pls? I think pre-covid 2020 was planned to be 4 based aircraft some of which were to be leased. Obvs for the past 2 years Its been greatly reduced and very flexible//unpredictable

Last time I checked it was 2x A320 and 2x A321 from LGW and 1x A320 from DSA. Everything else operated by TUI. Newcastle is 4x 738/MAX. The 4 ACMI at LGW is essentially a like for like replacement of Norwegian pre-covid.

By all accounts bottom feeders Avion Express and Smartlynx havenít got anywhere close to the number of pilots they need for summer, so Iím sure itíll be a fun summer season for all whoíve decided to go down the path of cheap foreign contractors. TUI, Jet2, easyJet and BA are all signed up.

subject to change!

Really interesting - thanks for sharing!

Are the Max and 738 used interchangeably or will the Max be used on specific flights when there is a mix at a base?

inOban 18th Mar 2022 18:47

How will they operate their remaining services from EDI?

does MAN include the additional leased in B787 and the air tanker A330 ? G-VYGK

Matt995 19th Mar 2022 00:34

I believe the Max aircraft will fly the same programme every week, and will not be interchangeable with the 738's, the Max will operate most of the Egypt & Cape Verde flights.

The 3 Edinburgh flights will be operated on "W" patterns by the ABZ or NCL based 738's

The leased in 787 at Manchester, I think is due to be a "spare" aircraft, so not included in my breakdown, and the Air Tanker A330 is not showing in any schedules at present, not certain if it might operate extra flights, or maybe replace a 737/763/787 , hence schedule it always subject to final confirmation.

As already mentioned, there is still a query about the SmartLynx A320's/A321's, and if they have enough aircraft/crews to go around for the summer.

Vokes55 19th Mar 2022 07:17

I think the ďleasedĒ 787 is just the BLX 789 coming back for Summer but remaining on the SE register. Due to do MAN-CUN

inOban 19th Mar 2022 10:08

I hadn't realised that Edinburgh operations were being slashed that much, considering that, pre-covid, the one based a/c was fully utilised.

BFS BHD 19th Mar 2022 11:06

Where's the Sunwing B738s due to be based? Looks like there's four due over this year.

Didnít it do a number of w patterns?

inOban 19th Mar 2022 14:33

No more than a couple. Generally an early rotation to the Med followed by an afternoon to the Canaries.

Believe they are going to be based at Aberdeen, Belfast & Norwich, but the 4th one is a bit more uncertain, had heard it might possibly be Cardiff

It looks like the Air tanker may be operating the flight to Tenerife from Manchester on the 06/09/22 by the seating plan shown when booking.

Are you sure itís not the 767? If Airtanker are operating for TUI I think itíll be on a backup basis to cover for the lack of spare if TUIP isnít delivered by Summer.
