I've got a fantastic deal to Cancun with Thomas Cook
It may be a fantastic deal because of the charter configuration of the aircraft.

Suggest you upgrade to 'extra legroom seats' or to the 'Premium Cabin' if available, and take your own DVD Player with your choice of movies.

By the way, I think the Monarch B767 has been withdrawn from use.

767 G-DIMB is gone from the fleet.

A330's are doing the longhaul now.

The 767 has gone to Abu Dhabi for TCX winglets and maintenance. Monarch have had a lot of tech problems with it while it has been in france, i think they might be glad to be rid of it.

Strong Rumour of 2 additional 757's for the summer. Have heard that there is lots of adhoc and extra charter work available and they are just trying to way up the Pros and Cons......we'll see!!!

Monarch dont have 767's anymore so i doubt they'll get more. G-DIMB was returned to TCX.

The 757 rumour could have so credit to it as that aircraft has the range MON need for mid-haul routes and has less seats (obviously) than the 330's and 300's. I love the 757 so hopefully its true.

I heard the opposite, given the drastic reduction in the amount of adhocs operated in recent months.

* and dont mention MoD which is all done at virtual cost

only means they might be able to source some additional 757 aircraft if the lease price is right or a 330 for the bus guys

The 757's left the fleet due to age and cycles not because they wanted to get rid of them.

The 757's are great for the eygpt flights and for ad-hoc work.

Monarch don't get just any old sheds it will be well thought about because their a very well organised airline. I hope they do get more 757's, maybe the astraeus 757 will return for summer time.

Actually scandic they have a bit of a track record for buying junk, those rotten a321,s BM palmed them
off with being a good example, they have cost MON a fortune to rectify

Maybe that was the era of no investment. The winds of change are starting here at MON, the 'family' are horrified at the lack of investment in the company over the last years ( thanks PB). With their new 'hands-on' approach we may find the company going forward. By that I mean more new(er) aircraft, better infrastructure and maybe a functioning IT department.

The word in the crew room is that Mon has a real future. I hope so, my mortgage depends on it!
