Titan Airways adds A321 to fleet

01/16/2016

News »  Published: 15/01/2016 - Filed under: News » Titan Airways has added the first Airbus A321 to its fleet, configured for 212 seats in an all-economy layout. The Stansted-based carrier is mainly known for charter flights, but also provides rapid response sub-charter services for airlines including British Airways when one of its aircraft goes tech, as this forum discussion illustrates. Titan currently operates a fleet of ten Airbus and Boeing aircraft, with plans to transition to an all-Airbus fleet in the next three to five years. The carrier’s A321 is configured in a high-density layout (Airbus states the aircraft can accommodate up to 220 passengers). If you think that sounds tight, the next generation of A321 aircraft are set to feature even more seats. On its webpage for the… Read More


Lufthansa to offer less legroom than Ryanair

01/16/2016

News »  Published: 15/01/2016 - Filed under: News » No it’s not a misprint. It’s true. Soon Lufthansa will be taking delivery of over 100 A320 neo family aircraft from Airbus.  In the months and years to come these twin-engined planes will be plying Lufthansa’s most important European routes. Some are expected to be reallocated to other Lufthansa Group carriers. But for some passengers it’s not all good news. The A320neo aircraft will accommodate 180 passengers or 12 more than the carrier’s existing A320s. Extra seating can be installed thanks to new space-saving layout for the galleys and toilets. Seating is slim-line as with the existing A320s in the Lufthansa fleet. The good news is that Lufthansa will restore the comfort difference between business and economy class. As with British Airways,… Read More


Turkish Airlines CEO astonished at Heathrow decision delay

12/26/2015

News »  Published: 24/12/2015 - Filed under: News » Temel Kotil, Chief Executive Officer of Turkish Airlines’, has said he is baffled by the inability of the UK authorities to make a decision on increasing runway capacity in the South-East of England generally, and Heathrow specifically. The CEO whose airlines flies out of both London Gatwick twice daily and Heathrow five times daily (as well as Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh), said that he cannot understand why “… the UK authorities are not expanding Heathrow.” “Can you imagine? Everybody wants to come to your city to bring passengers to spend money and the UK authorities saying “We don’t need a big airport".  "The UK authorities don’t know what they are doing.” Kotil compared the inbound tourism prospects of Istanbul, New York,… Read More

Airline seats to avoid

12/26/2015

News »  Published: 26/12/2015 - Filed under: News » These days travellers are faced with a barrage of choices when checking in online. But while you may find yourself deliberating over whether to have the chicken or the salmon, your attention is perhaps better focused on the choice that will most significantly affect your flying experience: the seat. Some of them don’t recline, some are positioned hazardously close to the toilet, and some have even less legroom than the standard seat. Here is our guide to the seats you should avoid. The aisle Think of your elbows before you choose this one. The seat on the aisle is simply too close to the traffic. There are far too many trolleys and people with poor in-air balance that can hinder your… Read More
