Maybe just me, but how on earth do you spend £900k on a paint job? A typical Airbus paint job is around £80-120k and this isn't a particularly complicated or unusual paint scheme. I'm actually more interested in whether they have spent £900k which I find incredibly hard to believe - even for Government!

They didn't - that's the clickbait headline. The paint job was part of a package of work which came to £900k.

In the same way that the Falcon 900s will undergo 'militaryisation'.

CEO Alistair Wilson has left Titan.

Not sure it was his choice judging by the language and some comments. Anyone know why?

Sum of the parts

One person doesnít make a company.

Thereís plenty of talent already here to continue the success story.

I donít think anyone was saying that was what was going to happen. It was more a question of why he is leaving at short notice?

It appears Titan Airways is currently flying the mega rich in G-POWT in cattle class Manchester to Istanbul....
It's listed as Y220 Seating...having just come from a rotation to from Newquay for easyJet Question is would it be feasible or possible in a couple of days to change the seating profile to more the players would be used to??

Why would they reconfigure the seating?
Titan, 2Excel & Eastern regularly fly football teams around on Saturdays, Sunday's and midweek.

Istanbuls a bit further and this is a Champions League Final.

Put it this way - three drivers have relayed the team bus across Europe for the final. Why wouldn't you re-configure the a/c if that 0.00001% made a difference??
