IAG/British Airways Awarded Monarch's Slots at LGW...

Looks like we'll be seeing IAG and British Airways expanding at Gatwick...
BA owner IAG 'secures Monarch's Gatwick slots' - BBC News

They have beaten easyJet and Norwegian to get Monarch's old slots.

Does anyone know how many slots that is?

I think they use to base about 8-9 aircraft at Gatwick, so if the aircraft were flying 2-3 return sectors a day that will about 16-24 landing/take-off sets...

Be interesting to see how they are allocated, could they go to BA or maybe grow Vueling more at the airport.

I wonder if we could see IAG start low cost/long haul operation from LGW, with a few aircraft, maybe with the Level brand. Maybe transfers a few 777-200's in a high density configuration?
