1900 due to depart Wamos Air Airbus A330-243 EC-NCK to AGP as TOM8BE was delayed until 2113

Due back to BFS at 0151 as TOM5KJ, doubtless the outbound delay will have a knock on effect.

I wonder are these flights to link up with cruise ships?

Possibly something to do with the Sunwing having suffered damage on the ground at BFS.

What happened this time? Did they not have an accident before while here involving the runway lights?

It was quite a bit more serious than that actually, the aircraft almost did not make its takeoff, and as you mention it struck a runway light.
The CAA report is here - https://www.gov.uk/aaib-reports/aircraft-accident-report-aar-2-2018-c-fwgh-21july-2017
I actually saw this incident from my garden when I lived close to the 25 approach.

I was not aware of a recent problem, but it did mention on local news their was a shortage of cabin staff with Easyjet, and it said other operators had been having problems as well.
FR24 is showing Sunwing C-FPRP as still operating.

I am locking this thread as it`s not correct date. If anyone wants to continue the Sunwing discussion feel free, but please open a new thread in Modern Civil Aircraft or similar. Thanks
