Yup, though Sunwing grounded their fleet of 737 Max 8 Tuesday night whereas the Max 8 was banned from Canadian air space earlier this morning

I've been noticing that TUI has been operating flights from Canada mainly YOW, YUL, YQG and YXU have been operating flights for Sunwing this winter with Sunwing flight numbers I don't know if it has to do with the max groundings or seasonal demand the TUI planes that I now they've been operating because they've been tracking on Flightradar, the registrations are

G-FDZY *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

G-TAWW *Full TUI livery

G-TAWN *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

G-TAWO *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

C-GWVB *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

C-FHZZ *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

C-GTUO *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

C-GYUK *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

C-GWVB *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

C-GAWV *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

C-FIUM *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

C-FVWA *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

C-FTDW *Has TUI Airflareo livery

C-GLZK *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

C-GLZX *Has TUI/Sunwing hybrid livery

Bold print means They're in some sort of TUI livery but are operated by Sunwing AND have a Canadian Registration.

If there are any more planes in any of these liveries please add to this post. I can think of at least one more but can't find the registration 

DISCLAIMER: Sunwing is one of TUI's tour operators and TUI has a minority stake in Sunwing

As many of you know all Sunwing flights have been cancelled until further notice. Many aircraft have been grounded as being discussed above and I want to wish the best to all Sunwing employees during this difficult time.
