Hard to say as it has only operated once (by Titan). FR24 has this week's flight scheduled as 320 which obviously suggests Titan but this is not always accurate. Not sure if TOM and Titan are operating the same flights each week or if this will rotate.

When do you travel? I know that people have been contacted by TUI if their flight is to be operated by Titan so perhaps yours will be TUI or is unconfirmed.

Tui have hinted that they might contact me if the flight is different from the 738 that is shown on their schedule and my 'free' FR24. However as I am hard to reach they may not manage it!

Please be aware of POSSIBLE scams at check-in at smaller Greek airports.

Titan seem to be in demand at the moment especially with those carriers affected by the 737MAX grounding... Suprised they haven’t added more A320 (variants) aircraft to the fleet... especially as they seem to get busier and busier with ACMI each summer.

I guess a huge gamble for Titan to take on more a/c sooner because the outcome of any RTS of the MAX was not known - We now see that the MAX will not be back for this summer so everyone is grabbing for capacity.
Any a/c still out there from say WOW or Germania are getting snapped up of course.

Titan already had big contracts with Jet2 and BA before the MAX debacle.

Titan are have outlasted so many rapidly expanding airlines precisely because they have expanded organically without over-stretching themselves and having sensible cashflow to survive the inevitable wobbles in the aviation industry. Their business ethos may seem out of step, but by not taking advantage this year I hope they are still around for years to come.

If you take on extra aircraft, can you crew them. And if you can gear up to take both extra aircraft and crew, what do you then do with them over the lean winter season which follows?

The joys, highs and lows of the ACMI carrier - great fun to work with one.

Currently the lack of 787 and 737 MAX's mean good times for the ACMI's and BA too needed more short haul a/c in the past 2 years

There such carriers are few in Europe -
Wamos, Hi-Fly, Evelop, Privilege Style, Air Belgium, ASL, Avion Express, SmartLynx
and Euro Atlantic (who have been around for a long time)

Anyone know when G-POWS is due to return from the freighter conversion work? Seems to have been away for a while.

Also, when the third B734F is due to join the fleet?

You hire crews on zero-hour contracts, it's not rocket surgery.

What they do in the lean periods is then their problem. Harsh, but there's the direction that the Corporate World has taken.

They must be doing fairly well one it comes to freighter contracts. As they are planning on adding another 737-400 and a A321 P2F by the end of 2020

It was a daft suggestion to begin with and remains a daft suggestion now. If you expect to hire Airbus-rated pilots on zero-hour contracts, then it is highly likely (particularly in the current market for pilots) that the only candidates will be those who cannot secure permanent jobs elsewhere. That is not the basis from which standards are built. Thankfully, from all I know, Titan have standards and have far more savvy than to follow such advice.

New aircraft type to join the ever-expanding fleet.... an A330-200 in 32J/206Y config. Looks to be an ex-Avianca Brasil machine by the looks of the lie-flat J seats.
Aircraft is only 5 years old and will be available from April 2020, will be interesting to see who snaps this up - EXS/TUI to name just two!

I assume this addition will have been planned well before the sad demise of TCX, meaning maybe more A330s might follow sooner rather than later!
