If I remember correctly the three TCX* series frames at TCX were ex Avianca, so maybe it was bought with the intention of being a summer lease frame for TCX in the future

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!
Any link to the source of the info on the A330?

An article published by some of management on LinkedIn.

The business class cabins offer 32 electronically adjustable and very comfortable seats, all of which convert to 6ft fully lie flat beds. Spread over two cabins with 16 seats in each cabin, this lie flat product really offers a superior level of space, comfort, privacy and style.

Just been looking into Titan’s fleet past and present and noticed that one of their previous A320’s G-POWI was scrapped May 2018 at just 12 years old, that seems remarkably young, does anyone know why?

Titan confirmation, The A330 will arrive first quarter 2020 and begin revenue flights in April 2020.
The arrival of the A330 will coincide with the disposal of the B767 from Titans fleet.

Maybe the Titan expansion at STN is in addition to that at MAN and BHX though?

This is in addition to the 7 A321's being acquired by Jet2, and particularly for STN expansion.

Are these aircraft crewed by Titan or Jet2 in the cabin?

Are a lot of crew at Titan on Seasonal or “Zero-Hours” contracts? Given the nature of the business there is a lot of “stand-by” and seasonal work?

The 321’s subbed to Jet2 in the summer are ZT flight deck and LS cabin crew as far as I’m aware.

Correct. Same with the 757s.
