TUI Orders 65 Boeing Planes

Fri Dec 15, 2006 7:17 pm

This just hit the news wires....

SNIP

TUI Orders Boeing Planes, Will Add Hotels and Cruises (Update1)

By Maria Sheahan

Dec. 15 (Bloomberg) -- TUI AG, the German tourism company that yesterday said it's cutting 3,600 jobs, will upgrade its aircraft with 65 new planes from Boeing Co., add hotels and expand Internet booking to revive sales.

http://quote.bloomberg.com/apps/news...=conews&tkr=BA:US&sid=ai1AimfvgDEY


And this for AFX:

SNIP

The strategy includes merging the Hapagfly and Hapag-Lloyd Express businesses into the new TUIfly.com brand and focusing on the low-cost market via Internet-based sales.

TUI also plans to create its own leasing business for its jets.

In addition, TUI said it will pay about 2.0 bln eur for 65 Boeing jets, scheduled for delivery as of 2010, replacing aircraft required from 2010-2013 without increasing overall capacity.

These aircraft will all become part of TUIfly.com.

http://www.iii.co.uk/news/?type=afxn...s&articleid=5898438&action=article


And Reuters:

SNIP

TUI said it had ordered 65 Boeing short- and long-haul planes, mostly 737s, worth around 2 billion euros and would combine its airlines under the new brand TUIfly.com to create a 60 million-euro earnings boost.

Perhaps, but the article talks about longhaul planes as well, and since you would get even less 748s for $2B and the 763 is probably not an option, it sure sounds like 787 to me  Wink .

Anyway, good news. Is this a new order for Boeing or confirmation of current UFO orders?

If this is a new firm order, then Boeing's chances of reaching 1000 by year-end just rose considerably.

The text says mostly737s so this includes a different aircraft type and the 787 is the obvious choice.
757 is not produced anymore, 767 is an outdated aircraft and an order is not likely except they need new aircraft very soon but I doubt that. I think it is safe to say that this have to be 787.
Will the aircraft be for TUI Britain or TUI Germany ?

I would be good news if it were not for that part:

From what I have heard so far are the aircraft meant for the whole TUI group so 787s as a 767 replacement for Thomsonfly is likely.

You don't get a whole lot of B787 if you pay 2 billion Euro for 65 aircraft = 30,7 million Euro per aircraft. Sounds more like 737's to me.

I gues it is crisis meeting time at LTU HQ today - all LC or CHarter Carriers in Germany have placed a major order and/or merged (with the exeption of Condor). There is so much capacity on the market now that one of them will bite the dust - my bets are on LTU!

Yes but except of LTU and DE neither of the LC and Charter airlines in Germany offer longhaul flights. Hapagfly has retired its last A310-300 a while ago.
No if this order is for 737 only like many say it is not such a big threat for LTU.
Regarding DE if the rumors are true and LH will sell its share we will likely see the brand of Condor disappear leaving only LTU as a second German longhaul carrier.

TUI have corrected the value of the Boeing order to US$3.9bn or E3.0bn. This has been reported by the company itself and some of the newswires are updating their articles now.

Between Air Berlin and TUIfly.com, that's 125 aircraft from Boeing. Add LH's stunning 748 order and that's close to 150 frames. The dollar/euro thing may be at work here, too. But...I'm not complaining!

Actually i'm sure a part of the order (atleast for 737's) will go to ArkeFly... They are the only TUI airline which doesn't own short-haul planes, and have to lease theire planes from BMI, Iberworld, Aventura etc. They already announced there were looking at a couple of 737's (probably about 4-5)

i think the long-haul planes will go tho Britania for replacing the oldest 767's, and to Germany as they still don't own long-haul planes (hence the A310)

We still don´t know if there are actually long-haul planes in this order, at the moment I doubt it. Besides Hapag-Lloyd/Fly/whoever decided years ago that long-haul flying was too expensive for them and decided to leave this market segment altogether. Thus I doubt that there would be any long-haul order in for Germany.

What I would ultimately see for the TUI group is a central (in-house) leasing company managing all fleet requirements for the different airline brands. Thus, you as the airline brand are just becoming a "virtual airline", operating (probably coming from some kind of in-house staff leasing company) staff, managing the operations and marketing the brand. What ever you need (planes, staff) is purchased from subsidaries of your mother company (TUI) on an as-needed-basis.

The 737-800 has a list price of 66 -75 million $ according to boeing.com, a 787 upwards from 138 million.
TUI pays 60 million per aircraft included in this aircraft. As its not only 737s, but also a few other (bigger that is) aircraft, TUI will probably pay around 55 million per 737.

I have been looking at the press release at the tui-group website

[ link - http://www.tui-group.com/en/presseme...2006/20061215_Pressekonferenz.html ]

In the fifth paragraph it says ".. TUI has placed a fleet renewal order with Boeing for 41 aircraft valued at US$ 3.64 billion. The aircraft will be delivered as of 2010 and will replace aircraft required in the period 2010 to 2013 .."

and finishes with

"The above commitment is in addition to an existing order backlog with Boeing of 24 narrow-body aircraft, bringing TUI's total order backlog with Boeing to 65 aircraft."

So, if we have a $3.64 Billion order for 41 Boeings - hopefully, it looks likely that the order does include a few 787s  pray 


I also add my congratulations to PanAm_DC10

Is this a new order for Boeing or confirmation of current UFO orders?

That is indeed the question. My gut feeling is it will be a combination of both. And before we get too ahead of ourselves, let's also note this, as previously mentioned by AwyrCymru:


From the TUI press release (my emphasis):

"In order to secure its future airline business, TUI has placed a fleet renewal order with Boeing for 41 aircraft valued at US$ 3.64 billion. The aircraft will be delivered as of 2010 and will replace aircraft required in the period 2010 to 2013 without increasing overall capacity. The new aircraft will replace leased aircraft currently operated in all source markets. Most of the aircraft will be financed through off-balance financing schemes. The above commitment is in addition to an existing order backlog with Boeing of 24 narrow-body aircraft, bringing TUI’s total order backlog with Boeing to 65 aircraft."

Where does Thomsonfly stand in all this:-

Will they be merged into Tuifly? (I doubt it though, as they have managed to build up quite a brand for themselves.)

Will there be a significant proportion of the 787 order (if it exists) (significant being 10+) going to them?

With nearly US$4b being spent, there will be a WB component here, and it will be 788s IMO. I wonder if the SU/LY slots will come into play here seeing EIS is from 2010-2013?

The thomsonfly brand name will totally disappear within two year unfortunately and the entire tui airlines group will become tuifly. Also apparently thomsonfly will become an all low fare scheduled airline with Thomson holidays just having seats on their planes, similar to now but without the charter and scheduled division.

Where will that leave the 787s and the new long haul service? The low-cost model is somewhat incompatible with the above.

http://www.ttglive.com/NTTG_fullstory.asp?ArticleID=6833 as well as from the TUI AG website where it states that they will intergrate all the airlines operations together.

I think they should at least just keep every countries own brand eg. thomsonfly, corsair with a logo maybe at the front ' operated by tuifly' or something like that, as when you get used to one branding they decide to do they go and change it again.

ThomsonFly are only just celebrating their 3rd birthday. If you want well liked and well known, try Britannia!!!

RE: TUI Orders 65 Boeing Planes

Okay, Boeing has now issued its own statement regarding today's news:

http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2006/q4/061215d_nr.html

IMO, the most explanatory (if you know how Boeing works  Wink ) sentence is this:

"This order brings the total order backlog of TUI with Boeing to a total of 65 aircraft, some of which were previously recorded on Boeing's Orders and Deliveries website as unidentified."

Now, after doing a little more research and looking at the Boeing statement, I think we can say this:

- all 41 aircraft announced today will be new orders
- Hapag-Lloyd is the only TUI Group airline with current, identified outstanding orders with Boeing (comprising 1 737-700 & 3 737-800)
- therefore, 20 current orders listed by Boeing as UFO must be for the TUI Group

Unfortunately, what we still don't really have a clue on is model breakdown, though it would appear we are talking about 737NGs & 787s. . .

Firstly, it is nice to hear that TUI are going to invest in new Aircraft. I always thought they would be Boeings.

And another thing I always thought for the whole of the TUI group Airlines' is that they would all come together under TUIfly. Today it seems both of my expectations have come true.

The company [TUI] didn't really show any remorse getting rid of Britannia in 2004/2005, a brand which had year's of experience. So I doubt much remorse will be shown towards Thomsonfly, which has about 3 years brand experiance. After vigorous marketing and all the rest of it TUIfly will become a just as popular brand in the UK as Thomsonfly is currently.

Thomsonfly is probably my favourite Airline, i've got used to the new operation, the new colours. And now by 2008 it will become 'TUIfly', which sounds dire, because:

1. How do you pronounce it?
2. What does it mean, and frankly who cares I suppose.

And as for making it fully loco well i'm sure many saw that move coming.

First they get rid of the zebra fabric seats and now this. unbelievable.

The Yellow will look nice though, I will be able to tell what Airline it is when I see it above me.
Make sure they know we're playing the game, but we don't need to play the game because we've already won the game.

Perhaps I'm tardy in noticing, nevertheless, congratulations to PanAm_DC10 on his elevation to Forum Moderator.

I also agree on this one.
