Two days ago a TUI Fly Belgium B737-8 MAX operated the first commercial MAX flight in Europe since the grounding order was removed.

Today, TUI (UK) B737-8 MAX (G-TUMB) departed MAN for an hours flight up to 40,000ft over Southern Scotland before returning to MAN. This is the first time a MAX has flown in the UK since G-TUMF was brought back from TFS to BHX in September 2020 as far as I can tell. I'm assuming the plan is to have these flying this summer?

Yes, that's the plan. Several are due delivery from Boeing over the next few weeks as well.

If you mean the first time a MAX has operated in UK airspace since September 2020, then there were 2 Icelandair MAXs that transited the UK last Sunday en-route from Lleida back to Keflavik.

Is there anyone that has any knowledge with regards to 757 and 767 operations this summer. info.flightmapper hasn't updated any TUI details yet however the flights are currently on sale. I'm thinking specifically with regards to 757 operations MAN-JSI and 767 operations MAN-CFU/BVC.

Any info greatly appreciated, I understand S21 is to be the final season for 757/767 ops at BY

I do not think that there will be many flights operated by 757s this summer as Tui will have all their 737-800 and Maxs in service along with 5 787s operating short/mid haul. I know some crew from 757 bases have had their 787 training pulled forward from later this year to Feb & March. Hopefully someone will be able to give you a more official reply

Next B737-8200
 
G-TUMJ out of BFI on delivery to LGW now.

Assuming there won’t be another lockdown, we’ll all be going on holiday this year and the schedule isn’t up in the air at all does anyone know where the 737 Max’s might be based this summer?

Yeehaw22 27th Feb 2021 09:34

MAN, LGW, BHX, BRS.

All stc obviously.

ROC10 27th Feb 2021 10:52

Just to clarify, TUI’s MAXs are not 8-200s (believe only Ryanair have those). They’re just standard MAX-8s.

hec7or 27th Feb 2021 20:43

Besides Ryanair, VietJet Air is also one of the few customers of the MAX 200 variant with an order of 100 airplanes placed in May 2016......Wikipedia (usual caution advised).

Indeed, the current stored TUI UK fleet and those built awaiting the next deliveries are all 737 M-8 (189 seats)
TUI UK were deciding to drop the MAX moniker.

TUI do have a sizeable order for the larger -10 model (>230 seats) which was supposed to be delivered this season, but AFAIK these have not been built yet.

The TUI Group has started re-introducing the Boeing 737 Max to service, with its Belgian carrier TUIfly conducting flights to Malaga and Alicante.
(OO-MAX), a 737 M 8, departed Brussels shortly before 09:45 on 17 February.
At the moment TUI have a very small programme in Belgium with up to two flights a day, with the Max only be used once a week from Brussels.”

Had my summer flight timings changed again but hardly surprising
Pleasantly surprised to be told TOM2438 OUT and TOM2775 RTN are to be OPS with a 757 instead of the MAX.
RES rang trying to sell the extra leg rooms seats.

I don't think the first Max 10 has flown yet.

ROC10 28th Feb 2021 10:28

matjr79

I’m assuming you’ve seen a seat map? The 737s also have extra legroom seats.

Not seen a seat map.. i had email and then a call off TUI Reservations about my flight times changing.
They advised the system is showing B757 each way.. compared to 3 months ago they said B757 out and B737 back..

Nice to see some extra short haul wide body action from GLA, BRS etc

GrahamK 12th Mar 2021 18:01

I'd be extremely surprised to see GLA happen

Curious Pax 12th Mar 2021 19:33

Can anyone shed any light on the 737 fleet plan? They had 10-12 second hand 738s (G-TUKx series) planned to join last summer which I had the impression were to cover the capacity shortfall caused by the Max grounding. Obviously 2020 didn’t pan out as expected (no kidding!) but several of these 738s still seem to be coming (2 ex TUI Germany examples are at Bristol with UK ids I think). However with the Max ban ending, and new Max’s being delivered, coupled with the summer 2021 uncertainty I would have the the G-TUKx plan would have been scrubbed?

Fly757X 12th Mar 2021 20:47

My interpretation is that a lot of those used frames arriving was to help cover the opportunities that would arise out of the TCX collapse. Of course the MAX issue would’ve been a consideration too no doubt.

MKY661 12th Mar 2021 21:38

According to Jethro the acquisition of 2 738NG's have been cancelled.
