Here's the situation:

Let's say Transavia, Thomas Cook, Monarch, Thomson etc. have an aircraft with a technical problem and no back-up aircraft is available. The technical problem is bigger then they thought so they decide they need to hire an aircraft somewhere. In situations like this, usually Titan Airways, White Airways, Blueline and such airlines are the rescuers.

But how do you lease an aircraft in a situation like this? Is there somone at Monarch calling Titan with: "Goodmorning, Titan Airways speaking" , "Morning, this is Monarch speaking" ? Big grin

What comes next, what do you say etc.?

I've been wondering how this work for quite some time now so I hope we have an expert in the house with the answer.  Wink

Quoting BasilFawlty (Thread starter):

Try Googling these airlines you referenced. Titan airways claim they can provide a replacement aircraft ready to launch within 60 minutes.

Generally the ops team will start calling around various airlines to determine whether they have a suitable aircraft available, and if so, whether they have a crew available that have enough duty hours to complete the flight. Many airlines negotiate standard rates with main suppliers (e.g. Titan / Astraeus) so contracts are faxed through and returned. So it really does start with a phone call!
