I believe they had a tech A330 all day, so maybe cover for that?

I was under the impression the Titan (and Privilege Style) aircraft have been brought in due to issues with the recent A321 acquisitions, which have delayed their entry into service.

On the subject of the new A321s, are these being fitted with the new pitch seats before entering service?

Some a/c will get the new pitch seats some will not, its complicated for various reasons.

Has anyone got any news on the imminent order?

Seems to have gone quiet over the past few weeks.

Monarch are a regular customer for Titan, last summer Monarch used both Titan and Hi-fly (A340) to cover flights to ALC/AGP from LGW

Latest i heard was an announcement about an announcement on the 14th

G-OJMR Airbus A300 Last Revenue flight.

Monarch's last Airbus A300 G-OJMR retires.

Monarch's enthusiast flight departed Gatwick today for a 1 hour flight.
It routed up to Manchester where it looks to have done a flypast at approx 1000' before heading back south to land at Birmingham at around 4:35pm this afternoon.

What a lovely sunny Spring day to go on a fairly low level flight (15,000' at the most). I hope all passengers enjoyed the flight...

Was lucky enough to be on it and they did a great trip. Very steep take off and at 22,000 feet up to Manchester then down to Birmingham at 9000 after the fly past. They did a good job serving champaign and providing certificates and safety cards.

Well done to them and a fitting farewell to a lovely bird.

Lovely flight as well Was nice to meet some friendly spotters Sad to see it go

Oh and I didn't get a window on 12K in the end, but I could still see through the window behind me so it wasn't too bad

Sad to see her go. I feel like the variety is slowly leaving the skies. It seems a lot of airlines are moving towards the 2 aircraft model of 737-800/A320 for short haul and 787/A350 for long haul. I can see why, but it's all so beige.

It was an amazing day, though I only saw MAN receding behind in the climb out! Did we do the go around off 23R? Loved the chance to get out on the tarmac at Gatters for a time too. Major kudos to Toby and all the team.

Yeah we did I was on the right (didn't get my window but peeked through someone else's) And I saw Terminal 2 completely empty along with the remote stand area

Nice for a view Round the aircraft at Gatwick as well, wasn't expecting that I thought it was better than the one at Birmingham actually. Saw some people at Gatwick deciding to use a set of airstairs to take photos which I thought was Hilarious

Even though their knocking on Monarch will miss them a lot, best aircraft monarch have ever had in the fleet, I sure will be sad to see them go at the end of the year.
