Where's Barbara Cassani these days? Im sure she would be a good fit for Monarch - considering she did such a good job with Go under British Airways...

This was about a week ago. They didnt like the new purple colour which they have now changed back to Indigo:

Currently two A320's carry this scheme. More info here:

Tune in again next week. I'm hoping the Spotty M on the fuselage will be gone by then.

It still looks far too cluttered and only needs Monarch.co.uk aft of door 1.

I hope it's not Barbara Cassani. If she follows the GO model, every aircraft
will be a different colour.

I really quite like the Yellow and Indigo scheme with the large spotty M as it makes a statement.

Well it's a big thumbs up from me for the new Monarch livery. The tail looks excellent. Reminiscent of the original Monarch scheme. Now SAS Scandinavian ... that is how a hideous livery looks!

Suppose we all have our own opinion Burpbot.

Im fed up with 80% of airlines having boring white fuselages and drab tails..so full marks to Monarch for modernising their scheme looks very smart.

MAN - FCO has now been dropped and will now not commence from 25th March. LTN & BHX not affected. Bit of a strange choice i think.

MAN-FCO

There was never any MAN-FCO flights in the first place, It was only BHX and LTN to FCO. MAN was only to be Milan, Venice and Verona in Italy for summer 2012

New for 2012 14 new routes

Birmingham - Dubrovnik, Heraklion, Milan, Venice, Rome
Gatwick - Dubrovnik, Heraklion, Milan, Venice
Luton - Rome
Manchester - Dubrovnik, Milan, Venice, Verona

Flying back from GIB to MAN on the 16th March on the ZB575, for this date only the flight is departing GIB at 1915, it is normally a 1155 dep, just curious why this date only a time change if anybody knows?

cheers

Monarch only have 3 757's and non of them have the new titles/livery yet... Monarch won't know which aircraft will based there and I suspect this will be rotated around regularly for operational reasons anyway.

It will vary, depending which one is based at MAN. All three should have the new decals by the end of spring.

Not quite sure about this one. Bit bizzare for me too as i also do this flight regularly

I hear the A300 s are being disposed of, the first one going at the end of this year
They are indeed. Fleet changes according to Jethro's are as follows:
One A300 to leave the fleet by the end of this summer, one by the end of next summer and the final 2 the year after.
All 757's will leave the fleet by the end of Summer 2014
One A320 to leave by the end of this summer.

Fleet replacement plans are expected to be announced later this year.
