Newcastle only to Hanover

Manchester to cologne, Hanover, Stuttgart, and Venice

part of the Thomson group I'll wager

Thomsonfly by any other name and repainted jets.

"In summer 2007, the TUI AG Group in Germany owns 48 aircraft, which means that TUI operates the third-largest German fleet after Lufthansa and Air Berlin, carrying more than 12.5 million passengers per annum. As from mid-January 2007, the entire aircraft fleet, which originated from Hapagfly and HLX, will operate under the new, amalgamated airline brand TUIfly."

and

"TUIfly have recently announced that all their Thomsonfly aircraft will also be renamed and have the same look as TUIfly, thus Thomsonfly will no longer be around. Due to the impending merger of First Choice Airways and Thomsonfly, All first choice aircraft will also be rebranded as TUIfly"

At the moment, TUIFly is TUI's name for their German low-cost airline, which used to be called Hapag Lloyd Express/Flug.

FCA and ThomsonFly will be re-baged as TUIFly soon, but this offer only refers to their German budget airline business, hence only two UK airports and a mainly Germanic selection of destinations - as far as 'Hapag Lloyd' TUIFly are concerned, UK is a destination and not a departurte point!

The largest 'British' holiday company Thomson is part of the German travel group TUI, not the other way round.

Banned

might be a good idea to put

they only fly from Manchester and Newcastle in the title

Good find if thats where you want to go.

Tried Manchester to Venice and all I get is a Pop-up telling me it's operated by Thomsonfly. Has anyone else tried this?

Edit - in fact I can't find any £5 flights at all!

That's excluding taxes. With taxes it's about £75 return minimum to most places.

cologne is a good place! just flight times are somewhat rubbish

Not good at all.. Found flight for £5, but still came up at £171 for 2 adults and had to go back the next day..

Manchester to Cologne, £5 before taxes & charges, £47.30 really. Not very good at all and shockingly misleading advertising by them.

Not great, prices are no cheaper than ryanair/easyjet offer with less departure/destination options

Have used them with work to fly Manchester to Cologne, no problems, nice smooth check in, clean plane, no complaints.

No different to Ryanair, FlyBe, BMIBaby etc in terms of misleading flight prices.

Don't forget your luggage - they probably charge for that as well.

How is this a deal? 2 x '£5' return flights from Manc to Cologne come out at £171!

These '£5 flights' are false advertising and nothing short of a con.

See my previous post.

Ryanair do flights for 1p or even £0.00 don't you know...

Unfortunately airlines which aren't based in the UK don't have to comply with our rules and/or advertising standards.

At least the likes of BA and Easyjet actually show total price these days.

As said above, TuiFly (Formely Hapag Fly & Hapag Lloyd Express who were both formerly just Hapag Lloyd)only currently operate Boeing 737-800 and Boeing 737-700 aircraft on the continent with a variety of destinations. With the merger of First Choice into TUI AG, all First Choice Airways & Thomsonfly aircraft will be rebranded as of summer 2009 into TuiFly livery and branding. Much like the Thomas Cook/My Travel merger earlier this year.

This merger is looking rather bad for some regional airports within the United Kingdom unfortunately. The UK sector of TuiFly are looking at pulling the current thomsonfly 737-300/500 series aircraft before/after the summer 2009 season, and thus reducing the amount of flights available at some regional airports. An example of this is coventry, which due to the length of it's runway can only accept a fully loaded 737-300/500. This will mean they now will either have to operate a non-full 737-800 which would be a loss maker considering it can operate full from larger airports, or pull out altogether.

The same applies for Bournemouth.

Wouldn't touch 'em with the proverbial barge-pole.

Owned by Thomas Cook.....the well known ( now German owned ) operator who bought out MyTravel recently, then slashed over 1400 jobs and are now busy asset stripping the company while moving the entire operation back to germany.....

Would rather use other low cost operators who do occasionally have genuine offers and not this shower who hide behind "£5 deals"......

TUi/Thomson/TuiFly are nothing whatsoever to do with Thomas Cook!

Oh yes they do if they advertise here, which is why Ryanair has been referred by the ASA to the Office of Fair Trading for repeatedly breaching its codes. Ironically, while Michael O'Leary and his fellow thugs are happy to insult the ASA when it rules against them, they are also happy to use it to make complaints against EasyJet!

Opening poster - time to change the title I think, as you're just pandering to the misleading info at the moment.

Quite true.

I was refering to internet advertising by foreign companies.

Michael 'that's extra' O'Leary is always right (in his own mind) of course!

I'm sure many have seen the conditions note at the bottom of the site page:

** Fare for a one-way flight (selected routes) when booking online; exclusive of taxes, passenger-related charges and fuel surcharge (these extras will total between € 23.78 and € 58.48); limited seat allocation per flight. Offer available for more than 40 short-haul destinations. Bookings made by telephone or through a travel agent are subject to a € 7.50 service charge per flight.

Yes, I think they are taking the Pi** a £10 fare going up to £76 with taxes etc.

Sorry OP, but due to the title, I've voted cold & expired, as the deal in the title & price field is not & never was available - would click spam but for reckoning you were trying to help & don't want it to seem personal.

You might have done, but that's been reversed!

But it's still cold as ice - why hasn't the heading been updated? It's impossible to get tickets for less than four times the advertised figure!

No it hasn't - it takes more than one vote to mark it as expired. I don't know why people haven't expired this - the offer never existed.
