And again...

Anybody know the plans for the additional A320s that have now been listed on Titan Airways Fleet List ?

Are they to replace some of the existing 737/757s for the standard ACMI stuff or to be leased for a longer period to the likes of EZ or Jet2?

Roster is an electronic piece of paper which bears no relation to what you may end up doing, the kind lady in charge of crewing once sent out what she thought was a meaningful and well intended 'clarification' document setting out rostering protocols, it included the the line that "the company will not change your rostered day(s) off with less than 24 hours notice"

other than that 30 minutes call out time from standby, excellent expenses and salary in general, CP & FM (737) are good people, if your in then your in.

Very interesting flying, but not for everyone and certainly not like any other airline in Europe

Titan 320's rumoured to go to jet 2.
If all goes well, they will go to all Airbus fleet of a320's and possible long term lease of a a330.

Please be more clear with your posting.
Are we saying the A320s will be operated on behalf of Jet2?
Are we saying Titan plans to go all Airbus?

Ahh get you!
That is going to take quite a while as Jet2 generally buy all their aircraft

I did say generally but the A330 is a different kettle of fish as it is
a short term lease over summer as is the Titan deal.
You make out that Jet2 are going to become an Airbus Airline which is a
whole different ball game as replacing 60 odd aircraft would be very expensive.

By the way I like Titans new colour scheme.

Thanks all. Nice people and friendly, that's true.

If there is a lot of stand by, how many hours per month expected?
Any problem to get paid?

I can't tell you for definite, as it'll depend which fleet you're on and how that fleet is being utilised over the summer. Also, I'm no expert, so there are others with a better idea of what the summer looks like.

If you're on a longer term leased aircraft, expect to be busy. Any standby will likely be within normal roster protocols, at the base where the aircraft is.

You could be doing 85-100 hours a month if on one of these aircraft. Less, if on standby for ad-hoc charter I imagine.

As for being paid? You'll be paid on time, every time. I have never, ever heard of anyone not being paid.

Which reminds me that they've had A320 G-POWI based at Edinburgh for Easyjet since the 21st May. How long does that one last?

G-POWI has been leased to EZY until the end of September. G-ZAPX is also planned to operate from EZY from LGW from July to Late September.

LS have leased G-POWM to operate flights out of GLA until the end of September.

Titan Fleet Questions

I see that one of the 737-300QC's is listed for sale with Cockley Brake Ltd. So it looks like 1 of the 737-300QC's will be leaving in October. I am guessing from the description that it will be G-POWC. Do Titan own all there Boeing aircraft or are any of them leased?

Aircraft for sale

The A320's seem to have been kept very busy since there arrival. It will be interesting to see what demand is like for them during the Winter.I remember reading somewhere that Titan was looking to transition from a Boeing to Airbus fleet over a 3 to 4 year period. Anyone know if we are likely to see another Airbus added to the fleet to replace the 737 for 2016?.

G-POWI is due to transfer to FCO for Easy as it did last year, around the end of July.
