Non of the A320's have been fitted with the new "tablet holder" seats, G-OZBW/X/Y have seats covered in purple leather style material, these seats are ex previous carriers that have been re-trimmed.
When I last flew on BY they were still First Choice seats.

I notice both A330s are operating out of LGW at the moment to Goa/Banjul (long haul) and skis on short haul. Howcome MAN sees no winter operation?

Probably because no tour operator has requested it. The planes go where the tour ops want to take their passengers from, it's not Monarch's choice.

Facelookbovvered- monarch are not my management I was just curious as to why you were quoting from a review site as it's not the most common route of discussion in many other airlines threads.

Anyway my face isn't bothered so will leave you to carry on your discussion.

Are all three MON 757s going to Icelandair now? I thought two were being scrapped.

All three B757 were going to Icelandair all along, two for parting out and the third G-MONK due to depart for Iceland shortly.

Any reason why G-ZBAR's lease has come to an end now instead of the end of the year? One due to be WFU now staying perhaps?

It's an Ex. Vueling aircraft. Not had it's seats replaced yet.

Anyone know then they are all due to be done? I would Imagine it will take a while

Your post has made it over to the LTN thread, you should not add 2 & 2 together and make 5.
G-ZBAR is not leaving the fleet until after the summer as originally planned, it is going to St Athan for a 2A check, no room at the normal inn's.

Summer 2015 fleet

Mr @ Spotty M

What is the final fleet composition for summer 2015 A321/A320.

Booking engine suggests BHX 8, MAN 8, Gatwick 10, Leeds 2 and Luton 4, which is 32 and is it one spare or two?

My understanding a month or so back was two spare, one each in BHX & LGW. All can be subject to change as is normal.

In terms of where the reductions at bases fell, MAG has born the brunt with EMA losing its 2 a/c base and MAN down from 11 to 8. LBA has retained its 2 a/c. and I gather BHX is just one down. How do LGW with 10 and LTN with 4 compare to 2014?

It's a good job MAN has a lot of positives for this summer as the loss of those 3 MON a/c, including presumably A330s, is a significant drop in capacity unless medium and long haul routes are being replaced with a greater number of short haul sectors.

Most of the other operators have stepped up and claimed the MAN losses
so I don`t think that is a problem

How many routes have been cut from Leeds? just trying to work out why Lanzarote got the chop? Have Jet2 and Ryanair really pushed them out?

Mr @ Spotty M

Thank you.

MANFOD

Luton was 5 last year but 4 the year before.

By process of elimination if Manchester had 11 based then Gatwick was 12

MAN 11, BHX 9, EMA 2 LBA 2, LTN 5 and 1 spare = 42.

As Ian B has stated Manchester have replaced most if not all their loss. BHX has an extra Thomas Cook based to compensate although that is not a complete increase as three 757's will turn into three A321's plus the A320.

Monarch have dropped 3 routes from Leeds them been to Arrecife, Heraklion and Bodrum. These have been replaced with 2 new routes to Alicante and Naples along with some extra flights been added to Dalaman and Faro. Overall the programme remains at 28x weekly flights, 2x daily flights for each of the 2 based Airbus A320's this summer 2015.

Leeds to Lanazrote this summer see's Ryanair up to 3x weekly and Jet2 up to 4x weekly.

LBIA - I noted some months ago that Monarch were well behind the drag curve in putting their summer 15 schedule on sale (we now know why given the media accounts of the '11th hour' negotiations) - perhaps they were forced to offer new routes to try and tempt passengers who had not already booked their summer jollidays.

Mon 757

Hi spotty m
Is it true monk is going to Iceland as an operational aircraft? I thought she was going for parts? Having seen her sisters at Kemble I hope to god she might escape the same fate?
