No diversion NOTAM extended to 14th Nov. I guess the remaining 7 TCX using up remote parking are the issue but I'm a little surprised. Has ops set the bar too high?
This NOTAM now appears to have been cancelled.

With just 5 TCX 'impoundees' (?) left, 1 TCX DK A333 locked in the TCX hanger and the loss of daily TXC movements it's not a surprise.

Do we know when the remaining TCX aircraft will leave the airfield?
Is there any way the TUI MAX's would be parked over at the west apron instead in a closer formation?

I believe that by using the 23R holding bay they actually lose less space. If you think about it, the majority of departures are either from 23L or can use the intermediate departure link M1. There are very few flights that actually need to backtrack to use the full runway length (the TORA is only 330m difference if using M1 rather that full length).

As always I hope that helps.

Thanks @Scottie Dog
I watched a jet2 A330 depart from even further along 23R a few weeks ago going to Tenerife and seemed to rotate before the second high speed turn off...it's amazing how much less runway is required these days

• Pushback towards Intermediate Holding Position (IHP) L1 and then tow forwards to IHP D3 before tug release. A ‘nose wheel pushback limit marker’ will be painted on the taxiway for guidance purposes. An Airfield Operations Safety & Compliance Officer (ASCO) must be in attendance for ALL A380 pushbacks from Stand 12 to safeguard the aircraft wingtip from vehicles on the apron road at Stand 10 and to check tow-bar wheel stowage is correct. 4.4 Stand restrictions
4.4.1 Night stopping aircraft are to be parked on Stands 61 (all centre lines) and 62L during the night works.
4.4.2 Stand 62C is available for ICAO Code E aircraft throughout the works utilising ASTL Lima.
