Because the Garuda a/c would have needed to leave the flying prog in August when Monarchs most profitable flying is taking place

G-OZBX is an A320

My guess is probably just for checks

Glasgow City women's football team are playing a Champions League game there, that probably explains it.

A321 G-OZBE also worked a EDI-KRV in September 16th/17th when it flew MAN-EDI-KRK-EDI-BHX guess another football charter
And yes your right G-OZBX is a A320 sorry
is there any good Luton Airport logs out there on line
which might give info on what in the hangers at a given time

Also anyone else who logs what each aircraft flights are during a given month, just started mine on Monarch

A320 G-OZBX/A321 G-OZBG/G-DAJB

My guess is with both the A320/A321 now that we are out of the peak summer timetable and in the shoulder period before changing to winter timetable early November that the aircraft have gone in for hangar inputs.

DAJB is doing a private charter nothing football related, it is for the same company that used G-OZBE in September.

As Alex pointed out it is a private charter on a day trip taking the passengers on a ´visit´if that is the word to a notorious concentration camp nearby beginning with the letter A.
The same aircraft did a similar flight from Luton last week.
Any flight beginning with the figure 9 is usually a private charter flight i.e. football, cruise etc. Hope this answers your query.

Guess these private charters will become a thing of the past or very rare soon.

Anyone know if this part of the business is being run down yet i.e. are bookings for charters still being taken.

A pity- charters made Monarch more interesting to observe than Thomson or Easy etc although I know both do occasional charter work. Always quite a few MON 9xxx flights.

Presume no more Captain's Choice with the 757s going.

Thomson and EZY are fulfilling full more stable and reliable fleet wide in house programs, those with lots of capacity for private charters are the ones apparently in trouble be that for spotters appreciation or not...

Leeds

The booking engine and timetable indicating Leeds flights next summer.

It makes little sense at present as only a few routes, low frequencies and odd days such as Faro Tuesday and Wednesday only. It could indicate that they are been loaded and some positive news.

On the downside although the booking engine shows flights on a certain day when selected you can't book but definitely a change from last week.

As this is a rumour network is there an agreement with Leeds which makes withdrawal difficult -heard this might be the case.

OP I know they are a bit different but for a successful ad hoc airline- Titan?

But as overcapacity looms, airlines like Titan May suffer as a large part of their business relies on under capacity.

Think there will always be room for at least one carrier of this kind unless Easy BA plan on over capacity and aeroplanes sitting idle just in case.

Titan and to a lessor extent Monarch have filled the gaps for a long time now- before them were Invicta, Donaldson, Alidair etc.

I never said it would be the death of them but airlines like Titan will find it increasingly difficult if overcapacity in the market continues.
