I asked Sarah Saucin from TUI and she answered me for both CRL-MPL and BRU-MIA that there were changes into TUI Group fleet
After several days, she gave the same reply to my own questions...

I think she was busy with all the press requests about the national strike...

Well, at least we have our answer. TUI has given up MIA, who's going to take over now? AB? Not ready...

Norwegian ? Long haul base rumours...

Someone btw at Salon des Vacances at Brussels this weekend, at Lille Airport stand told me a Boeing 787 of TUI was coming today or tomorrow to Lille... But it seems more that a DREAMLINER flight is planned for Wednesday or so...

Most likely, the 787 will divert to Lille due to the national strike in Belgium.

There’s a maximum of 189 seats on a 737-800. That doesn’t mean the maximum passenger capacity is 189, though.
You can still put an infant on the lap of an adult.
In fact, dependant on configuration, the maximum number of passengers, including infants, on board could theoretically be somewhere close to 250, if enough infant life vests and seat belts were loaded.
So yes, 190 would very much be possible.

TUI Netherlands PH-TFC 737-800 (NG) will have a C-check at Luton, and will then join TUI Belgium.

To make optimal use of its fleet during the less busy winter season in Europe, TUI fly Belgium is operating charter flights from Canada and the United States. A total of eight Belgian registered aircraft (and Belgian crews) are flying tourist goers to and from exotic – and warmer – destinations.

I checked on airliners.net and found OO-JEF at Cancun, Mexico. The registration hasn't been altered:

Two days later, the same aircraft had a similar incident:

Incident: TUI Belgium B738 near Ottawa on Feb 20th 2019, hydraulic failure

A TUI Belgium Boeing 737-800 on behalf of Sunwing, registration OO-SRO performing flight WG-425 from Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) to Ottawa,ON (Canada) with 177 passengers and 6 crew, was descending towards Ottawa when hydraulic system B failed. The crew declared PAN PAN and continued for a safe landing on Ottawa's runway 07 about 13 minutes later.

Not one, but four 737-800s are leased to the US and Canada. Normally they come back at the end of the winter season.
