Demo E195-E2 is in the hangar at TUIFly BE.
A potential candidate for the B737-700 & E190 fleet?

OO-JLO (737-800) is doing OR-217/OR792 Amsterdam-Samos-Dalaman-Amsterdam today/tomorrow, as replacement for TUI NL's PH-TFF (also a 737-800) which had a ground collision with a catering truck at AMS yesterday. Apparently the truckdriver passed out at the worst possible moment.

9H-MPW now.

More than 48 hours of delay for passengers from Al Hoceima to Charleroi, and at least 12 for Charleroi - Málaga, STA 22:30 iso 09:10...

An A320 of SmartLynx Estonia is AOG.

Nearly no aircraft avaliable due to TC operation.

ESSAV, ESSAT, OMLEX, OMGEX don't fly more for TUI.

OOJAH is ready to leave the fleet for Miami Air International.

Almost 50 aircraft leased for the whole season. What a mess.

A mess would have been not leasing anything and leaving people stranded

Exactly!
Despite 10% of the fleet being grounded during the entire summer season they managed to operate more or less the whole program.
Calling this a mess must be a typo or a Google translate error, I would rather call it a success!

In general: the failure of the 737 MAX caused a mess to the whole aviation world.

Regarding TUI.be: they did a remarkable job indeed: even without 737 MAX ops, they've managed to realize their summer schedule program with almost no disturbance for passengers (apart from the usual schedule changes). And they've managed to add additional flights/packages.

TUI (UK) announced that Orlando Melbourne International Airport will become the Florida gateway for all customers travelling to Orlando and Central Florida beginning 2022. Flights will be operated with the B787.

TUI fly Belgium used to fly to Orlando Sanford, close to the city of Orlando. If they resume such flights (like they will resume Miami), it will probably also be to Melbourne, which is more than 110 km away from Orlando. Not really an improvement for passengers...

Only MIA will resume.
The triangle flight with SFB disappeared quite a while ago.

Care to explain why Melbourne is "not really an improvement for passengers"?
Instead of supposing, why don't you give some arguments?
Such as...;

- Melbourne = faster immigration/less queues than SFB
- Transport is most of the time included with TUI for packages, if any time is lost in commuting, passengers will win anyway thanks to shorter waiting times at Melbourne
- Easy starting point for cruises, which is *the* main goal for TUI pax from Florida
- Orlando is not really a city trip destination...

Distance really doesn't matter in this case. I don't quite see why this would be of any inconvenience to these passengers.

Closer to Cape Canaveral
Further from the Mouse

Hi

Anyone can tell me, if the TUI Fly Belgium Montpellier-Casablanca works well ? I have just seen, that flights will end on 7Nov19, instead of 26 Oct 19. I guess it's due to All Saints Holidays. Flights on 7nov19 are already full. However it looks that the route will be operated year around (Mondays and Thrusdays are in bold), but bookings are closed. Someone can confirm ?

They were planned to replace Rynair, on CRL-Montpellier, but they closed bookings, few weeks, before the 1st flight. Ryanair left Montpellier in March 2019, and they now operate flights, from Béziers (70km, from Montpellier). CRL is served from Nimes (45km) and thus Béziers, by Ryanair.

You can read the interview of the TuiFly Belgium spokesperson by the Montpellier Airport, only in French. The article is too big to be translated, directly from the link. You can only translate, by putting parts of text https://www.montpellier.aeroport.fr/act ... ntpellier/

Thanks
Hello

Tui has removed Montpellier, from its booking system. At the begining, fligths were supposed to end, early November 2019, but during mid summer, the airline decided to keep the service for the IATA Winter season 2019/2020, so it was supposed to be a year around service. But it seems that the airline has changed its mind.

I can understand, because there are already 2 airlines, on the Montpellier-Casablanca service and the demand is weakest, in winter, than in summer: Air Arabia Maroc and Royal Air Maroc link Montpellier to CMN. We are still waiting for the Transavia destinations, from Montpellier, maybe Casablanca will be on the map. Transavia France will open a base at Montpellier, from April 2020.

Anyone knows, if TUI will be back to Montpellier in 2020 ?

Bst Rgds

You have to force it in TUI booking system but indeed they head back to Miami from 4 April 2020, 2 times per week, on Tuesday and Saturday, until 24 October 2020.

Strange that TUI flies to Miami only in Summer. Miami is rather a winter destination for Americans trying to escape the cold of the Northern cities of New York and Chicago!

I don’t think many Americans take TUI to fly from New York or Chicago to Miami. :roll:
