G-TUIA reported as delivery to Manchester 30-31 May. So if that means overnight, it should be there **EDIT** Just read G-TUIB is to be delivered 31 May

8th of July for the first long haul flight. Will Thompson be using it on short haul flights for training? GE engines:mad: Why didn't they get the RR engines?

There could be many reasons. Patriotism would not play much of a part in engine selection, I wouldn't think; but I agree it would be nice to see RR engines on it.

Seems to be circuit training at Newquay. I would think as soon as circumstances allow they will slip it in on short routes Has G-TUIB shown up yet? Engine patriotism???...TUI is a German group

Nice to see the UK getting its first 787...but I still can get my head round that awful new Thomson livery!

it's a TUI livery...one of the Belgian TUI aircraft has been delivered in that too. Only Thomson has quickly repainted the fleet to match, perhaps due to the 787 It is a ghastly livery as many of the recent are...Monarch is another.

G-TUIC now delivered so perhaps a few ad hoc services are very close now
