A Sunwing Airlines Boeing 737-800 was conducting TUI Airlines Netherlands flight TFL3042 from Antalya Airport (LTAI), Turkey to Rotterdam The Hague Airport (EHRD), Netherlands. While at FL360 the flight crew observed arcing on the R1 window which was followed by a Window Overheat Master Caution. The flight crew ran the Window Overheat checklist however a large crack developed across the window. The flight crew ran the Window Damage Forward checklist and requested a lower altitude. The window continued to crack so the flight crew declared a PAN PAN with ATC and diverted to Bucharest/Henri Coanda International Airport (LROP), Romania. Fire services met the aircraft on landing to conduct a brake inspection due to the overweight landing.

The aircraft was ferried to EHRD on 21 September 2022 and resumed service the next day.
