Well if Monarch were to resume the Manchester - Gibraltar they would benefit of a huge whole in the market as there is no competition and a lot of demand. It was axed for the wrong reasons. So if they are axing Jerez (the replacement) then it makes no sense at all.

It would be good to see MAN - GIB return, But MON do well on the LGW - GIB route, GIB is frequented more by the south, And the charges increased at GIB made MON discontinue the MAN - GIB route.

With AGP down the road, MON knew they could transfer the MAN - GIB there.

Regards.

MON do even better on the LTN-GIB run as they do not fly LGW-GIB, "BYALPHAINDIA".

Are we going to see monarch stick to routes they know best - how about a Scheduled London - Heraklion/Monastir/Fuerteventura/Funchal/Paphos/Dalaman/Catania/Dubrovnik/Varna, all popular beacha nd holiday home destinations.

Well let's hope they do restore the GIB-MAN route, but I'm not hopeful.

125km to Malaga airport (80 miles) is not eaxctly down the road from Gibraltar...

Monarch have a 763 planned to route MAN-AMS (nightstop) - MED (Medinah in Saudi). Presumably G-DIMB is operating some Hadj flights for someone this year? Saudi Arabian or Garuda?

Hajj is for Saudi, using B757s, B767 and A300s.

Hajj is not for Saudi, it is on behalf of a Saudi Arabian broker who is brokering flights throughout Europe. They are all being operated under MON flight numbers.

My apologies, should have checked, took it for granted they were for Saudi as they were from all over Europe and Middle East and not from one country.

Granada Gone

Monarch have dropped their Gatwick-Granada service from early November. In a detailed explanation on their website, they cite low load factors (around 75% in summer) and lower yield than Malaga.

Monarch have 3 additional A321's joining the fleet next Spring. G-OZBP (Ex GB G-TTIB), G-OZBR (Ex Spirit) & G-OZBS (Ex GB G-TTIA) should all be operating by the end of March. Where are ZB going to utilise these extra aircraft? From what I can see, the scheduled program is down on this summer. LIS & GRX have been dropped from Gatwick, XRY has been dropped from MAN and ABZ - AGP is not returning.

Are Monarch about to announce some new scheduled routes or will they be increasing their charter work?

To correct you a little "ZB".
Monarch are adding two A321s in the spring, one of which replaces a A320.
The third A321 joins the fleet in August.

Thanks for that Spotty M. Which A320 is leaving? You are right TartinTon, daily MAN-MJV is new for next summer but this only replaces the 4 x weekly XRY route and the reduced frequency on IBZ. So there's some spare capacity somewhere surely?

LGE - GVA flights

Hi
I know this may be a little early, but does anyone know what aircraft type normally operates this route?

We're travelling on the 16th Feb at 0645 () on the Inghams charter.

Thanks

I think 2 of the B757's are going next year sometime.

However Monarch will now be operating a Chania route from BHX next Summer on a Tuesday and according to current timetables they will now need 5 A321's at BHX at this time, unless the aircraft positions in, as they did with one of the Turkey flights a couple of years ago, which operated with a B757.
Still think there might be expansion somewhere next Summer, but on what scale, and depends when the 2 B757's leave, which I think is in the third quarter of 08, but not sure, can anyone confirm??

Sad to see the 757s going- kind of last link to my youth. Presume NB and NC will go unless ETOPS saves NB- probably not a consideration these days.

At least NX will remain.

Many times have I been on the MON 752s in all of their liveries.

All of the UK charter airlines have uterlised the aircraft immensley since it's production due to it's great performance.

Shame to see them all leave - MYT, now MON, will be FCA and XL next before TOM who will probably replace theirs with the 739ER? Atleast TCX are still major users of the plane and hopefully for a long time to come!
