Just wondered... G-TTIG (A321) was delivered to EZY/GB a couple of months ago... since this was well after the decided sale of GB to EZY, which airline's interior was fitted inside the aircraft?

Did it keep GB's leather seats, TVs etc... or did it go EZY-LoCo?

... I'm pretty sure it did actually operate a handful of GB/BA flights before being handed over to U2, so I'd assume it was delivered to GB in their standard A.321 configuration... Can't imagine BA franchise flights operating in squeezy cabin colours!!

It went into service on 22 February as BA6996 (LGW-TFS) and continued to operate BA flights for more than a month, flying its last on 29 March.

It was delivered with the GB cabin, slightly different to G-TTIF - the biggest difference being the three lavs at the rear and one at the front.

As a side G-TTOB is now in partial easyjet colours with a revised cabin (more seats, less galleys).

I look forward to finding out what will happen with the ex-GB aircraft, of course I mean something concrete and not just more rumors! At the moment I still get to maintain them but if they leave the fleet - who knows?

It has been confirmed for a couple of weeks now that GT's fleet will be leaving. In the last few days we have a timescale for this. All A320's will be returned to the lessor within 2 years and A321's sold between 12 and 18 months from now.

Had a lovely flight on a EZY (GT) A320 last Saturday LGW-INN. Nice to have IFE on a EZY flight with airshow. Even better was that there were only 21 people onboard!!

Shame those planes are going... would have been nice to see some fleet variation in EZY... though I can understand that it all comes down to economics  Sad

Would ZB be interested in any of this aircraft, especially the A321s? They're due to get G-TTIA anyway.

Let's wait and see what happens, remember they have the clause in the A319 order to convert to A320/A321srs aircraft if desired. I think one of the factors that went against the GT fleet is the IAE engines versus the CFM engines fitted to U2's A319s.

Possibly. I also believe they are having G-TTIB aswell.

The internal e-mail stated that the GT fleet would be replaced by "Easyjet aircraft" and not A319's. Since the takeover the fleets have been referred to as A320/A321 and A319's. Perhaps a bit cryptic but it might suggest that A320/21 order conversions are being considered. Indeed, when the takeover announcement was made this was touched upon at a meeting.

Wouldn't surprise me much if they did as the demand to justify larger aircraft on certain routes (U2 and ex-GT) is there, and didn't you say the A319s wouldn't be able to do the longer ex-GT routes non-stop?

I think the 319s only have a longer range if fitted with the Additional Centre Tanks. If I remember right from my course the 319s can have up to 7 ACTs fitted in the forward and aft cargo compartments.

That's right. The U2 319's wouldn't be able to to do PFO/SSH etc should these routes be kept. MAN-TFS may just be possible although I am not certain.
