Yesterday a SACA inspection by the French DGAC resulted in the TUI flight Toulon-Brest operated by SmartLynx Latvia YL-LCU being delayed by 2h30. These inspectors are normally not allowed to delay flights unless it is a major or significant finding.

Minor things, like missing or wrong paperwork on board, are often a reason for delays during these inspections.

TUI Airways (UK) is using TUI fly Belgium flightnumbers for its flights from Dublin.
e.g. https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/tb8305
Is that an anticipation of a possible Brexit, to be able to operate intra-EU flights in this way?

TUI Fly flies from Lille to Tenerife, but seemingly they also stop in Fuerteventura on the way back. The same on other days but a stop in Lanzarote.

Is this correct and some charter operation? Or a booking engine mistake?

Those triangular flights are absolutely normal. If one destination in the Canary Islands doesn't have enough customers to fill a plane, a second destination in the same region is added. A full plane makes flights cheaper for the passenger.

Yeah, I know they do that often, but these flights from Lille to Fuerteventura or Lanzarote are not bookable on TUIFly.be or TUI.be

For certain routes - like the triangle ones - TUI wants to keep the seats for passengers with a travel package. That gives them a better profit margin then selling the seats as ticket only.

Yeah, but when I select a travel package on TUI.be, these flights arent showing up, only flights from Brussels. So if the routing is correct it should be only offline packages then or seats for French travel agents

What do you guys think about the huge diffeernce in prices between flights from Belgian airports and from Lille airport? All flights from Lille are super expensive, I wonder why...
