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
