Well they are also replacing 2x cargo 146s, so the belly holds probably.

Often the Gov sells seats on board the flights to media and press who accompany the VIPs on their trip. I doubt it makes much but does bring in something probably. An A321 with VIP forward cabin and then rear economy seating could hold as few as 100 pax like AA’s. That wouldn’t really be too big.

Interesting to note lack of any defensive aids as well, guessing this will in turn affect where this one will be flying and who it will be transporting when comparing to the Voyager and Bae146.

The UK Royals have for a long time done a lot of flying on commercial corporate jets... more than they do on RAF aircraft in recent years. And have tended to use chartered BA aircraft for extended or long-range official overseas tours. Defensive aids are not really a requirement unless the Government/Royals need to go into a hostile zone.

Titan second A321NX `GBNI officially registered 31.3.21 & delivered from the Hamburg factory to STN yesterday afternoon.
Being a possible candidate for "United Kingdom" livery it still has it`s all white paint work as when test flying.

G-NIKO departed STN this morning, on route for it's short term wet lease for Amerijet at MIA. Going to join G-DHJH for a while.

Good luck

NIKO and DHJH have been a pair of old dogs since back in their myt days. I hope somebody sorted them out since then.

Maybe the poster will happier with the NX`s then both 2020 models!

One of the reasons for the Amerijet lease arrangement is for AJI to evaluate & gain P2F operating experience & no doubt all will have been factored in for a six month operation 3000 miles from base.

The 2nd NX `GBNI ear marked for "United Kingdom" /RAF ops departed STN yesterday still all white to BOD...paint/tinkering or store?

In a further fleet movement the sole `318 has departed STN for the last time today en-route St Athan for breaking.

I always thought it stood for Air World Charter, but I may be wrong
