The flight was an empty positioner. New build 757s were delivered non-stop from Seattle to the UK, so Calgary-Gatwick absolutely no problem.

The longest sector I have personally flown a 757 with a full load of passengers on is Bangkok-Bahrain - 7hr 30min airborne - and it was in fact on good old G-MONJ. (Except of course it was 'young' back in 26/02/1992!)

Its a big thumbs up to the Monarch engineers for keeping all the great aircraft going, especially at the 757's age. I just hope that their not scrapped may well be perfect for fed ex plus they don't do very long flights.

Monarch A300

Thanks for those links, was great to watch...

So it seems we will be getting an announcement on the new aircraft order in the next few weeks, going by one of the interviews with the Directors about the future, Bombardier definitely don't seem to be ruled out, as they were mentioned.

Or just a bargaining tool. Time will tell.

But they mentioned the importance of "standardization of the fleet".

I can't see the ditching of Airbus and going over to Boeing...

Personally I miss the variety of the "old" days....

However it is nice seeing the smart Yellow and White livery... compared to the spreading growth of orange twin "borejets"

EGBB.... Thanks for the AirTeamImages videos they were very good.

Dear Scandic,
If this was the case Monarch would have made its decision.
It keeps postponing an announcement.....for the past 5 years!
We were told the announcement would be made end of March early April.
Now it is for July.
if Boeing was still not in the race there would be no need of pushing the decision further.

I would have said the same for Air Canada or remember easyJet and all those B737-700s.

We'll just have to see what they come up with, what do you think will happen to the 75's come the end of the year, are you a 757 fan.

They'll have their preference (I suspect Airbus) but they'll use Boeing as a tool to get the best deal from Airbus - it's business.

One of the 757's doing Calgary again tonight, my bet is it will be MONK again, does anyone know where DAJB is not seen it for a while.

G-DAJB has been on a "C" check in LTN, due to ferry if not already done so to BHX and for more maintenance work to be carried out.

Presume due to the runway closure at EMA - seems a long way for the buses though - would have thought BHX a better bet.
