TOM1710 seems to be flying unusually low today; heading down to TFS and is not getting above 25,000 for some reason. Tracking error or likely a problem?

Most likely a pack related MEL item, it limits 737s to FL250 in cruise when dispatching with one air conditioning pack inop.

G-FDZD suffering from the same issue for the second time this week. Perhaps a problem with getting parts?

I wonder what the cost impact would be for an airline doing a 10 hour round trip at this lower altitude....

They’re using G-FDZD on MAN-PFO-MAN which seems odd but perhaps so it only operates two sectors rather than four. It resulted in the outbound taking 6h10m…

G-TUMO doesn’t seem to have suffered the same delays. It’s been flying NCL-TFS-NCL at 24,000 feet but is running ahead of schedule.

Not as expensive as 2 lots of eu261 claims i suspect.

G-FDZD did a Madeira run on Friday and flew back at FL240, spent a couple of days on the ground, and then managed to go to Paphos at FL350 but again returned at FL240. Only TUMO has done a round trip at approx FL240/250.

My flight 5th June to HER was supposed to be 787 however recently changed. 242 config until the back of the plane which ends with 232 42 rows so doesn't look to be the 767. Waiting for TUI to confirm as says aircraft type N/A in app. Could this be a leased aircraft?

following this tread and noticed that TUMO did NCL/LPA/NCL at this level again. If it a new part is required how would this be done - would the aircraft swap down route and return to bigger base for maintenance work or could it be done at NCL?

CH Aviation has just announced TUI UK to wet lease 4 A320 family aircraft. Anyone know where they will be based and who is providing?

Can be done at NCL it has been done in the past.

Ncl has the same qualified engineers as the likes of MAN or LGW. It may only be a valve or a simple component change required so no real need to swap out. Unless it's something major that may require hangar input but If it's flying round with an Mel restriction then it's doubtful that's the case.

G-TUMO currently at 37,000ft on its way to TFS - so whatever it was is now sorted

It looks to be the same Air Tanker aircraft that Condor leased back in 2019. The seat map is identical.

Time table clash

TUI Summer Timetable attached, based on the month of August, which is sorted by flight number order.

I'm not 100% certain on which flights the 788 & 789 are planned to do at Gatwick and Manchester, i'm presuming the 789 will only be long haul, the 788, a mix of short and long haul.

Again, subject to any last minute changes/cancellations.

Being an avid fan of 788/9 TUI flights I have noted a couple of a/c clashes. A/c 12 flt 146/7 is man / cun / man dep 10.00 ret 07.40 but a/f is due to leave man as flt 2620 at 06.05 before 147 lands. Also a/c 13 flt 103 from MLB is due to arrive 5 minutes before departure as 2336 and on a/c 14 flt 123 from MLB is arriving at 06.45 30 minutes after it should have left as 2428. I may be overlooking the fact that times used are current and not for any amendments that may occur in heavy traffic periods like july and August.

Flightrider 30th Mar 2022 13:52

Three based long-haul 787-9s at MAN by summer and three long-haul departures by day:

Mon: VRA, CUN, PUJ
Tue: MBJ, CUN, MLB
Wed: PVR, CUN, MLB
Thu: CUN, VRA, PUJ
Fri: CUN. MBJ, PUJ
Sat: MBJ, CUN, MLB
Sun: CUN, PUJ, MLB

No overlaps between L/H and S/H 787 operations.

Resolves my earlier query regarding clashes by allocating SH to 788 a/f's and LH to 789.

Does anyone know if the ABZ based aircraft has changed type and from what to what? Had seats selected but then had to reselect them as they disappeared. Customer service said this was due to an aircraft type change. Thanks.

Did you not see a revised seat map when reselecting?
