Via Facebook "Aérochti", based at Lille :
Les difficultés de TUI fly Belgium.
Faute d'avions, les vols TUI sont parfois problématiques en ce moment. Aujourd'hui :
-- le vol retour de Nador a été annulé.
-- le vol au départ vers Minorque a été transféré à Bruxelles pour des raisons techniques.
-- le vol retour de Minorque est retardé de 12h à minuit.
-- le vol au départ vers Nador a vu des passagers être refusés d'embarquer car l'avion de remplacement était plus petit que l'habituel !
L'avion loué pour ce vol était le Boeing 737-400 de la compagnie espagnole Air Horizon (9H-MPW 168 places 27 ans !).

Many problems from LIL, but a 737-4K5 of Air Mediterranean arrived yesterday evening (SX-MAI) at CRL...

Still for TUI fly Belgium...

TUI fly Belgium flight TB2031 from Brussels to Boa Vista (Boeing 737-800 reg. OO-JAQ) diverted to Tenerife South around 09:15LT ... to be refuelled. Wrong calculation? Unexpected headwinds?
With too much headwind, sometimes the 737NG can't reach Boa Vista with full passenger load unfortunately. Passengers load is normally limited but as these routes were supposed to be flown by 737MAX, I presume flights are fully booked, which is not a problem for the Max, but it is now that the NG has to fly these routes.

Fuel stops happened a few times already the last weeks.
Thank you for the explanation, Themax.
It wasn’t a fuel stop though

Small correction: ES-SAQ has returned to Tallinn on 15/JUL,
so at this moment, SmartLynx operates 5x A320 out of Belgium on a daily basis on behalf of TUI Airlines Belgium.
Average age (as of 01/JUL/2019) of these 5 aircraft: 18,34 years. (!)

I guess that the invoice to Boeing for the grounding of 4 737 MAX aircraft will be high!

Another aircraft. ES-SAM is currently at TLL, operating for themselves.

AlbaStar 734 EC-LTG is operating as from this afternoon, at BRU.

It flew TB2251 to Heraklion.

OY-RUT, MD82 DAT is flying as well for TUI...

Arrived at OST and flew to ALC.

I think at the end of the summer we have to summarize all the planes used during the season...

Another one for TUI...

ES-ACH, Nordica CRJ-900ER is going to be used tomorrow from Brussesls South Charleroi to Oujda, and back I suppose...

3 hours in a CRJ-900ER, not the best comfortable way to begin your holidays...

IMHO, you can't compare the CRJ & ERJ cabins. CRJ is much more cramped.
Flown a lot on TUI fly's ERJ190 and pretty happy about it :-)

Indeed, significant difference in fuselage diameter :
- MooseJet : 2.69m
- SambaJet : 3.01m
