Probably not really much in LTN or BHX-EMA.

1.5 hours versus 45 mins-1 hour. So most important factor probably crew availability etc.

Assume Spare a/c was at Luton. Following canx at EMA of 07:20 departure.
Flight appeared on LTN board about 09:30 to depart 10:30. Left at 12:28.
Assume crew/pax bussed from EMA. Return landed 18:24 at LTN.
Passengers pleased with Monarchs response to emergency situation at EMA.
delayed 4 hrs in total but everybody booked got to where they needed to be.
Well done Monarch.

A300

Monarch's last A300 left BHX at 12.16 landing Tarbes around 13.45 (UK time) cruising down at 33000ft.

From the past to the future with 1st May tomorrow and 8 aircraft needed at BHX to operate an impressive 16 flights.

My wife and 2 friends went on Monarch to LCA recently. The went on a A321 both ways and she said the plane coming back had very hard seats with very little leg room. The plane going was roomier.

She went on G-OZBR and came back on G-ZBAF. Are there any differences in legroom or seats on the different planes or did she put on a load of weight?

I think MONJ may have the Monarch.co.uk back on her.

No more reclining seats

Bravo Monarch.

Finally an end to suffering kids playing with the recline button, and catapulting hot coffee into the lap of the passenger behind in the process!!!!

I note that the DM article states at the end of that Monarch "also fly from Manchester and Birmingham" without actually mentioning that they fly from a London Airport. Absolutely typical "Londoncentric" journalism from the "national" press!

Anyone know which aircraft have the seats shown in the article and when exactly the fleet are being retrofitted.
Flying at the end of September with monarch so hope it's fleet wide by then!

I can tell you with 100% certainty it will not, or even this time next year.
