No.
Flown to Larnaca out of MAN today, I expect it be familiarisation this week and then a transfer down to Gatwick in the coming days.
EDIT: A 789 is flying on BY94 (my flight) tomorrow which is interesting, since BY52 to Cancun is also being 789 operated so it will be ferried today

Looks like a change of plan. 'IK was reported locally as due to ferry to LGW yesterday evening, but I noticed it wasn't around at MAN late yesterday afternoon - but did appear on FlightRadar24 at MAN this morning. Indeed, it is due back at MAN (from LCA) in about half an hour.

Thought: Why isn't there a "BusRadar24"?

I wish, I suppose Arriva has one with it's app....

Just saying, G-TUIK was great, it felt a week old!

TUI have retired the last of their 752's.

I was never a fan from a passenger perspective (always found them very cramped), but was quite pleased to see one unexpectedly rock up last year on a return flight to Birmingham.
Knew it would probably be my last trip on one. And it was!

Shame my first ever flight in about 1997/98 was on a Britannia 757 to Fuerteventura from Newcastle, so have always had a soft spot for them. Was only 6 years old so didn't notice how cramped they were lol.

Been on a few Brittania Airways 757 through the years, along with those operated by Thomas cook, Ambassador, Air 2000 / Flying Colours /Jet2. The 752 probably replaced by the new 737 Max.
Think one or 2 still operating for Jet2,probably not long left for them given the A321 neo order just announced.
