With positioning flights the first digit of the flight number is dropped and replaced with the suffix P.For example Mon1234 would become Mon 234P.I believe this method is used when the positioning flight is financially tied to the previous or next flight.
Sometimes we just use the aircraft type as the number and add the P-Mon300P,this is usually when we are ferrying an aircraft for maintenance.

Monarch currently have no Boeing 737NG's on order.
The only outstanding order is for 7 late 7's.

Thanks

Leonard320, it is only 6 not 7.
For those of you talking of NGs, just a little pointer to future fleet make up.
MON have renewed leases on two A320s due to leave next year and l understand extended leases on some A321s also.

'Leonard320, it is only 6 not 7.'

I know it only 6, but I couldn't resist having a dig at the aircraft.

Thanks

Are you sure? I havent heard anything about the A320's and A321's going.

Maybe you mean Thomson

Well i asked the crew on the plane when i flew with them back last month and he said that they are replacing the 757-200's. He also said it may not be 737NG it maybe A319's.

News in the TTG that Avro will be expanding its Greek operations. The article reports that it will start:

BRS-CFU
BRS-ZTH
BRS-Crete (doesn't mention which but I suspect CHQ)

NCL-CFU
NCL-ZTH

BHX-CHQ
BHX-EFL
BHX-RHO
BHX-PVK

The flights don't appear to be loaded yet so I can't tell if these are with Monarch but I suspect they are part of the Monarch expansion into local airports after the TTG reported back in March that Monarch were planning to base aircraft in BRS, NCL and EMA as a starting point

If these flights are indeed operated by Monarch and are in addition to existing ones then I suspect an announcement of additions to the fleet will follow before too long.

I hope its Monarch who are doing them. If it is i wouldn't be surprised to see scheduled routes there as well.

BHX-CHQ

Chania is already bookable from BHX (can't believe I missed that one) and replaces the ZB Mahon service which moves to Wednesday morning before PFO. This year the aircraft on a Wednesday did PFO only and the night-stopped.

No sign of Preveza which is an interesting one from BHX. Not sure if this has ever operated in the past and if it did it only managed one summer (not Monarch).

Monarch are also listed as taking Thomson pax next year on a Wed to FUE.

Alas for BHX this is a downgrade as it is on ZB schedule service compared to a Thomson aircraft in its own right this summer.

If PVK, RHO and EFL do come on line with ZB then BHX will require aircraft five or some existing frequencies cancelled.

More good news for Monarch. According to the Universal Vacations website Comefly have announced flights with them from Aalborg to Fort Myers, Dec through to May, after their operation with them over summer.

The regional flying will be on 3rd parties and not Monarch based aircraft (apart from the BHXCHQ)

ah well, we can but hope! I would like to think though they will be trying these routes to see if they are successful enough to sustain Monarch flying. Do you know which third parties will be flying the routes by any chance?
