September 30: Gatwick-based airline TUI Travel, which owns the Thomson Airline brand, confirmed that it has agreed with Boeing that ten of the 23 787s it has on order will be cancelled, but also that it will have purchase rights, with no obligation, for a further 13 aircraft in future.
The company says that it “continues to believe” that the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the ideal aircraft for its long-haul requirements. It expects to receive its first 787 in early 2012.
