BA will be operating some flights and Titan will operate some on their behalf during the summer.

Are Titan looking to source further A320's to their fleet for summer 18?

Has anybody heard anything further on them acquiring A330's?

Titan are looking at receiving two extra A320's prior to the summer season but I'm not sure on their position regarding the A330.

Looks like Titan Airways are taking delivery of Boeing 737-400, G-POWS (ex British Airways G-DCOT) as its been flown from Montreal to London Stansted this afternoon after spending 4 years sat in the desert at Victorville.

Always nice to see old birds brought back to life. Suppose it'll keep commanility with their B733, while also providing a nice capacity increase. I'd expect 160-170 on there when it's kitted out, assuming they stick with the all economy class

Reported in Dec `POWS to be configured with 146 seats & with some charter contracts already then signed.

Due to be used in the cargo role from October 18.

`POWC in Coca Cola livery at present.

According to Jethro's, POWS is to operate for British Airways Summer 18, based at Gatwick!

Titan website stating same info as in December regarding `POWS.

However might be all change I guess following CAA refusal for QTR 320`s to operate for BAW over Summer`18 which has had BAW scrambling for EU aircraft.

`POWS was not originally acquired for a LGW base this Summer.

Wonder if BA could bring back into service some of the stored B734's themselves instead of letting Titan pick of the best ones left?

First objection of many to that idea would be how would BA crew them? The whole reason for the wet lease in the first place is that BA haven’t got enough shorthaul pilots to crew the summer schedule so their training department is going to be peddling like mad just to fill the ‘bus slots.....

Any idea of telling which routes POWS will be operating out of LGW?

Purely due to the 734 becoming a rarer and rarer breed that I wouldn't mind logging, especially if it's going to operate into somewhere like GIB

Confirmed from other sources too that `POWS will indeed be at LGW for Summer`18...
Good business for AWC I imagine as sustained & prolonged income instead of ad hoc charters for this Summer & based too at the airframes old home.
Aviation "a funny old business".....

southside bobby. Titan is very busy during most of the year. It has many long term contracts with other European airlines and indeed worldwide. Last summer most aircraft were flying continually for other operators and on its own services. The winter has been busy too! It is more of a case that Titan sometimes has to turn down requests rather than go looking for them!

Well aware of all facets of the AWC operation & their enviable worldwide reputation built up over many many years based over a STN HQ.

What you write is not really necessary because you only rehearse facts all know!.

AWC could have turned down a summer deployment with this airframe if they really really chose to (they were stating they already had signed some contracts for it even before delivery & perhaps I shouldn't have written just ad hoc charters) but for numerous reasons mainly their own economics I suspect & perhaps of course keeping one of their major customers ie "the flag carrier" happy the deployment works & has mutual benefits for both parties in this instance.

The last remark on my previous just related to the fact that it is slightly ironic this particular frame was at one time operated by BA from Gatwick!="A funny old business".

More aircraft.

Another A321 will join - in addition to the already announced one. Client airline will be announced soon.

All good news, looks like adding up to another busy year with more pilots and crew needed.

I'd definitely book a flight wherever it's going to have a ride on the 734 again. Any ideas how we find out ? Having worked for BA and flown on them many times they are much more fun than the boring old 319's and 320's.

Given the 734 will only have 146 seats (when previous Y configs were upto 180), it should provide a lovely amount of legroom.

Also heard an unconfirmed rumour that the new A321 will be leased to Jet2 for the summer season based @ STN
