is the full winter 2015 schedule released yet? Still wondering re Lanzarote as NIL so far?
Don't think so. No GIB flights loaded yet and these are usually late anyway.

I'm sure Monarch had two A321's due shortly, so how come there is an A320 on order here? Mistake?:

Plans have now changed, no new A321's, 1 x A320 new and potentially 1 x A320 secondhand.

If I was looking for aircraft I would just keep G-ZBAB to prevent getting a second one

Nice summary of Monarch for this summer compared to last including all routes cuts from each base and weekly flights:

Monarch Airlines cuts 26 routes for S15 but adds eight

With a reduction in the MAN base of 3 of the 8 a/c, it's not surprising that in terms of weekly flights, MAN is now the third largest base compared to the largest I believe at one time. I wonder how that 113 weekly departures compares to last year.

That said, the picture may be clouded by what's happened to the former MON charter business. It seems that MAN has picked up some extra flights by other airlines which may alleviate the overall impact.

Looking at the cuts in a little bit more detail, including the IT flights, it pans out as follows for early August.


Gatwick - 144 x weekly (Summer 2014 was 155 Scheduled + 28 IT)
Birmingham - 116 x weekly (Summer 2014 was 133 scheduled + 5 IT)
Manchester - 113 x weekly (Summer 2014 was 138 scheduled + 17 IT)
Luton - 59 x weekly (Summer 2014 was 70 scheduled + 1 IT)
Leeds Bradford - Maintains 28 x weekly


This means that overall scheduled services are down from 558 to 460 x weekly, with a further loss of 51 x weekly IT services. (including the closure of the East Midlands base there are 26 dropped scheduled routes, with a further 33 dropped airport pairs on IT services)


Looking at the Regions in more detail .....


Spain.

Down from 314 to 253 x weekly services, cuts on nearly all routes, although Mahon bucks the trend and actually increases from 17 to 20 x weekly services.


Portugal.

Maintains it's 53 x weekly services. Faro maintains it's 48 x weekly services, despite the loss of 6 x weekly services from East Midlands, and now overtakes the previous destinations of Palma, Malaga, Alicante, etc, to become the most popular route in terms of weekly departures on the network.


Turkey.

Down from 67 to 44 x weekly services, again cuts on all three Turkish routes (a further 4 IT flights from Gatwick to Dalaman are also lost, so the net loss is -27 flights)


Italy.

One of the markets that gains from the changes, number of services are up from 34 to 40 x weekly with gains on Naples, Rome and Venice offsetting a loss of 1 x weekly service to Verona.


Africa.

Increases from 26 to 29 x weekly services, with gains on Agadir, Enfidha and Sharm offsetting a decline on flights to Hurghada (there were 3 x IT services to Sharmand 2 x to Hassai in Summer 2014 so overall there is a slight loss in flights)


Cyprus.

A drop from 27 to 18 x weekly services


Greece.

There is no change in the number of scheduled services to Greece (10 x weekly) with the new routes to Preveza, Rhodes and Zante compensating for a loss of flights to Corfu (3 x weekly) and Heraklion (5 x weekly) However, the overall loss of flights to Greece is considerable with 37 IT flights operating in August of 2014.


France.

A small loss of 2 x weekly flights to Nice, will operate 8 x weekly.


Croatia.

Reduces from 15 to 5 x weekly services, with Split dropped from the network and Dubrovnik reducing from 12 to 5 x weekly services.


Malta.

Dropped from the network (had operated 2 x weekly from East Midlands Airport in August 2014)




The other losses are on the IT long haul (4 x weekly to Orlando Sandford and 1 x weekly to Tobago)

No change in the owners.
No idea who the new operators are going to be, a/c due to return off lease at the end of May.

A321's and winter 2015/6

Winter 2015/6

One noticeable change under the new ownership is how late the full winter schedule has been released. Is this a positive sign and that cash-flow is not an issue or is it aircraft related? At BHX Ryanair has got pretty much the full winter 2015/6 on sale (minus one or two routes perhaps) before ZB and that is a first as far as I can remember

A321's

Was there a financial penalty in respect of the cancellation of the two new A321's or was the taking of one new A320 enough to satisfy Airbus?

Also in respect the other new A321 replacement, it was indicated earlier in the thread that a second-hand A320 was in the frame but I understand other options are being considered although I don't think there is a particular issue until the end of May when the majority of the summer schedule is in full flow.

A320/1's & Wet lease

I would have thought Pete that the new A321's would have been leased so if the leasers are able to find new homes for the A321's there hopefully shouldn't be big penalties with them. My understanding is the A320 coming brand new was originally intended for Air Asia.

On another note it looks like a Jet Time 737-700 will be operating for Monarch May-October two flights per day out of BHX once the main peak timetable gets going.

B737

Alex321

Cheers Alex and some of the answers are in the booking engine in fact which is recent. The 737 148 seats is load and based at BHX.

Therefore another cut at BHX with the loss of one 214 seat A321 and one 174 seat A320 down to a 148 seat 73G.

It operates some of the city routes such as Barcelona, Venice, Rome and Nice but also one Tenerife also showing and Sunday Dalaman?

Alex321 is correct in that the new Airbuses have nothing to do with Airbus other than they built them.
Both the cancelled A321's and the new A320 are or were going to be leased. I believe maybe the same leasing company.
Due to the 3 A320's leaving the fleet it left Monarch two A320s short for the summer season.
Monarch were at one stage looking to wet/Damp lease a A320, but it was known before the Alex321 post on the second-hand A320, that the Jet Time 737-700 was going to be operated in its place.

Seams G-MONK is now destined for the knacker's yard - possibly at Teesside. Not sure exactly when though.
