In Stuttgart several "Dreamliners" from tour operator TUI are starting these days. However, the aircraft do not fly tourists to the Caribbean, but operate cargo flights. A Tuifly spokesman confirmed this at the request of airliners.de and stated that TUI has been operating cargo flights "for a few weeks".
Tuifly does not coordinate the cargo flights itself, but through a broker. The freight business is extremely short-term, the spokesman continued. TUI has made flights to America, Mexico and Argentina in the past. In addition to Stuttgart, the largest Dreamliners in the fleet also departed from Frankfurt. They also fly from other European countries, such as Belgium and the Netherlands.
The group is currently using two Boeing 787-9s for its cargo business. However, the machines are not structurally changed for this. Only the belly freight capacities would be used. These were sufficient as no passenger suitcases would take up space.

Not sure what it's for, probably either for Panalpina/DSV, automobile parts cargo, or NASA.https://flightaware.com/live/flight/JAF ... /EBBR/KHSV. It'll either be on OO-LOE or OO-JDL, as those are the two for TUI Belgium and it has a TUI Belgium callsign.
