Not too sure a B734 would have been to 180...High density B738 is 189..

The Titan website was the source of 146 seats for their own ACMI work before the BAW lease happened whether the config has changed is not determined.

BTW `POWS airborne from STN on an airtest today & is in full AWC livery...believe it`s first work from LGW is shortly.

The BA seating was 149 at the end... I wonder if they have even kept the interior?

The reason the BA737-400 were at 149 config was so that they could operate with x3 cabin crew (1 per 50 pax).

I meant to say 170, i do apologise to everyone. THanks Rog747 for reminding me.

The 738 was a stretch from the 700 and the size gap runs nearly parallel to the difference between the 734 and 733, so higher density configs aren't impossible, but they'd be damn near impossible to cope with.Imagine the legroom (or a great lack of it)

Does anyone know when the 737 arrived at LGW early this afternoon. The aircraft is planned to operate tomorrow to TRN (BA2576/BA2577) and AGP (BA2714/BA2715).

BA have added more flights to there S18 LGW schedule. A number of the additional flights are shown as operated by a Titan A320.

The schedule now shows that Titan will require 3 A320’s to operate all the flights they are shown as operating. Does anyone know if they are adding another A320 aircraft to the fleet in the coming months?.

Also is there any update on when they are planning to reconfigure the A318?.

IIRC BMA upped G-BOPJ (later OBMN) and other 734 charter aircraft in their fleet to 174 pax. The 156 seater scheduled configuration aircraft were used for charter too, and subbed frequently for the 174's. Ex-BFS, a frequent sight in the early 90's were 18 customers departing via LHR for their intended destination, due to a tech issue on the based charter aircraft.

172 was the max to which any UK operator has taken the 737-400.

No, BD definitely had the 174 configuration in its 734's in the early 90's - G-OBMM, MN and MO. Possibly also MK, though I think that was largely used on the scheduled services.

The VIP Terminal at STANSTED even!

Titan have also used the VIP Terminal for several cruise charters in the past on behalf of CUNARD.

interesting

i was at BMA but left prior to 737 ops

i was always under the impression 737-400 was exit limited to 737-400
Exit limits: 168/172 passengers

wonder how they managed to get dispensation for 174

Rog747, no idea how they did it. I was an FSM at BD and we did a year of working with the 170 pax layout, but the following season the extra 4 seats appeared. I believe there may have been seats missing at one pair of overwings, and possibly 1A also. Legroom was certainly tight!

3rd A321

There are talks of a potential 3rd A321 G-POWU may be in service later this year.
