The first 734 freighter looks to be G-DOCY which was retired from the BA fleet back in January last year.

Is that true so far, 2 733 QC and 1 734F?( speaking about the 737)
And What about the night mail operation ?
IS the roster of the 737 more stable in any way?..something running on regular basis?
and how many hours per month minimum during summer season?

Regarding Royal Mail: West Atlantic now holds the contract but I believe they are retaining the services of Titan until at least August.

G-POWP was indeed once G-DOCY of BA.

Any update on whether Titan are going to add more Airbus aircraft to the fleet before the summer?. I believe a A319, A321 and A330 have all been rumoured to be joining the fleet but cant find any further info.

The same lessor has a second, newly-converted, ex-BA -436(F), presumably also intended for Titan.

I don't think an A330 will be arriving this year, a pro-Boeing ethos seems to be returning instead of a full 100% Airbus fleet.

Latest rumour is a Letter of Intent to purchase an ex-BA A318, LCY cleared, 30 odd seater type...

I had heard rumours that IAG were intending selling one of the A318's over the next couple of months. It will be interesting to see what they do when it comes to the Cabin layout. Titan may find it very challenging to find companies wanting to lease the A318 if it was to remain in the 32J BA configuration.

Personally I think Titan would likely refit the aircraft with a with anywhere between a 128Y or 132Y high density all economy layout similar to what they have done with the A320's and the A321 they have added over last couple of years. This would make it far easier to lease to other airlines. Does anyone know if the aircraft would still be cleared for LCY ops if a high density cabin was fitted?.

A 128Y+ configuration would mean the A318 would be able to carry the same number of pax as Titan's ageing 130Y config 737-300's. Could the aircraft be lined up to replace one of them?.

Or they could leave the interior in place and use it when (if) BA need a sub on the JFK run. Plus corporate charters will find a need for it no doubt.

That sounds more likely than leaving the aircraft as is and severely restricting the market.

Whether it would be usable at LCY remains to be seen - clearly it could carry more than BA's 32 pax out of there at the expense of fuel while still remaining within the current TOW limit. Landing there with 100+ pax might be a different story.

But then there's no reason why they would necessarily care about serving LCY.
