I take it this was a rumour with little or no substance?

Yes. No doubt it will be aimed at the package holiday segment.
They also fly seasonal flights to Phuket.

Their Dreamliners which will operate the route are not configured in sardine fashion as per charters of the past. Spacious

I have tried a dummy booking but it seems like their system for MAN-UTP is not open for bookings just yet.

I tried too, but not open as you said. I also tried a dummy booking for MAN-HKT I think the price was £600 but that was a basic price then you had to add luggage etc. From what I understood from there booking page the basic seat does not come with a video screen. The only good thing about the flight was the departure times.

I might have some concern about the fellow passengers too. If the flight is full of those on package tours, and it is mainly charter bookings, you can bet the house they will have given the airport bar some custom  before boarding!

I was thinking the same thing, full of loud mouthed idiots and screaming kids.

My understanding is these TUI far east flights are for connecting passengers with their Cruise division.

Well there are plans for cruises to come to Sattahip in the future but not yet, I don't think that many come in at Laem Chabang. So I would wonder why U-Tapao.

Cost maybe. Cheaper to land at U-Tapao.
Also I noticed the same airline is also starting flights to langkawi. So possibly an expansion to South East Asia
