6 A320/321 & 1 B757, the rest not sure about.
I think 2 A300, with both B767 & A330 putting some appearances in.

Thanks - [email protected] spotty m, It would be nice to see the 767 more regular, The MON colours suit the machine.

Do you know how long G DIMB is planned to be operated for?

It would be nice to see more MON 767's.

Regards.

Higher prices?

Went to book our flights to ALC later this year. Spotty were charging around 500 for the three of us, Orange price was about 250 including insurance....absolute no brainer. Plus, Orange flies more than once a day from LTN.

Moan over

For the prices to be so high the MON flight must be almost full so making a good profit on it.

Evanelpus, Does the insurance cover flight canx by Easy for what ever reason.
In other words, do they pay for your flights with another carrier, if no seats are available on other Easy flights, due next flights being full?

With the merger between Mytravel / Thomas Cook and more consolidation forecast, what is the future for the Monarch Group ?
Will they go on the offensive and buy another operator to strengthen there position, ( but who ? ) or are they more likely to get swallowed by perhaps TUI, First Choice or XL ?
As a third option, might they expand the scheduled sevices and become even more oriantated to the independant traveller at the expense of the charter operations.
Anyone any thoughts as to how they might align themselfs ?

well as an ex employee I dont think monarch will ever be up for sale. They have been going on there own for years and think it will continue that way. As they are privatley owned and not a plc. I dont think the owners need the money. As for buying into other companies again its something that they have never done and doubt this will change. Thats my opinion though so u never know?

To quote someone else also in Monarch "In January MONARCH celebrated its 40th Anniversary. It is also the longest surviving airline name in the UK. They must be doing something right."

Rumour is that they are about to make a bid for a major cargo operator.

What Monarch will do is what Monarch has been doing. Gradually shift its operation from charter to scheduled. Been going on for 10+ years now, and very successfully.

Best of luck to them

Long term schedule

I have taken a chance that the prices wont come down and booked Christmas (22/12 - 1/1) for 175 with a reserved seat both ways. Also Easter (Sat to Sat) for a similar (lower) amount.

I hope my faith in the "school / big holiday - book early" mantra will pay off ! Just about held up for this year and I didnt loose out - but there is always a chance it can go wrong .

I know its a long way out but I think it will be worth it in the long run - even though they are holding my money for so long

No mention of the old A300 on here.I suppose it will be doing its usual long shorthaul this summer.How they get away with some of the seating never ceases to amaze me.

Monarch are definately doing "something right". Been flying them frequently on LTN-MAH for 12 years and every flight has been a pleasure, although the food isn't quite as good as it was in the good old days of "Crown Service". Long may Spotty M continue as one of the UK's best airlines.

Hello FTP

Monarch's 767 has a Premium cabin at the front but no seatback TV's.
They are Digi-players that are fixed to the seat in front.
(Given out after departure).....There is no Skymap on this though but a selection of movies and programmes.

I have found the following photo on Jetphotos.net of the premium cabin.
http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.php?id=5755848

The leg-room is quite ample too and the service is good.

Hope this info helps......

I can imagen its either down to better passenger figures at another airport like LGW or BHX where they have been doing very well recentally and low passenger figures at ABZ or they want to put the aircraft somewhere else for expansion from other airports which I have to say Monarch need...

Time will tell...

I think it is to with having to position crew to AGP which wont be cheap and also this year GSM have appeared at ABZ and there is now many additional 'sun bound' options than there were out of ABZ. GSM will also be AGP through the winter but only once a week. Sat I think

Monarch aberdeen

Was reading somewhere , monarch have said the route was longer viable, but if like at BLK , they were running a succesful route , They even said theirselves, it was very popular, until they mucked up the timings,plus with the arrival of Jet2 at BLK, I guess they thort they could do better elsewhere, pity, cause i like monarch and alot of people said how good the service was, Just nobody wanted to fly out at 9.30pm, strange how the 7/8 am flights was a huge success
