Not sure if the seat map is quite right on that one. I think the A330 based at MAN will be doing CWL/SFB on a Monday... unless this is the A330 from LGW.

Not from MAN, not sure about LGW

Potential niche routes in BOH

What is the liklihood of Monarch considering opening scheduled niche routes from BOH? Since they operated out of NQY are they now totally against second tier regional airports?

Open niche routes from BOH with statistical demand according to CAA O&D stats include: Gibralter, Funchal, Innsbruck, Venice, Rome, Almeria, Heraklion, Orlando, Barbados, Cancun, Barcelona (sorry for the mixup, no order of demand)

Does anyone know what is going on with the MAN - GIB route? First of all they put it seasonal and now we have just had to cancel three of our flights as they are now only doing it on a Monday and Friday this summer!

It looks like Monarch are sticking to their advert "Fly one way from only 35" as they have cancelled our flight coming back

It seems MAN-GIB, Like LTN-GIB will be done on some sort of W pattern, I can't see it loaded in the web currently but that's what it seems to be.

Pass on what the schedule will look like in full but I'd of though if correct LTN or MAN will have some unfamiliar times this year.

Time will tell.

GIB

There was an article in the Gib Chronicle last Saturday, I think, and Monarch had been questioned about their comittment to this route. They said that both routes to Gibraltar would run through next winter and although not presently available to book, would be shortly.

We shall see. Although I use EZY through Liverpool usually at half the price of Monarch so that must be having an effect

Does anyone know if Monarch are leasing a 757 to Thomas Cook for the summer season to base at NCL?

Just out of curiosity do Monarch use the A300 to Sanford at all, or is it always the A330's?

The A300 has only been used for Sanford when the A330's are out of action

Given that they can only use the A320, and not the A321, on the GIB route that is my thinking for why it is always quite late in the process that the flights to GIB get finalised.

It has been the same at every single season change I can remember. And given the current limited competition, they can be quite flexible with the plans to enable them to maximise their return from the frame in other areas.
[They are after all the airline which has the best timed flight departure exGIB and have been for some time (post 5pm Friday departure).]

Fed up with all the rumour mongers trying to read stuff into it, this has been the case every season change. The key indicator is how many services they offer and how that varies over the period. They are not going to drop the routes.

BlueA330, thank you. Pardon my ignorance but can the A300's do UK to Sanford non stop?

The Gib I believe is running in a W pattern from Ltn as there are no 320's based in Man this year.
Timings will Be roughly Ltn Gib 0730 1000 Gib Man 1045 1345 Man Gib 1445 1745 Gib Ltn 1830 2100

Yes the A300 can do the UK to Sanford non-stop. However, in Monarch's high-density config it can usually struggle with payload, so a fuel stop in Bangor would normally be the case.

Well this will be different when I fly to GIB The schedule takes place from 4th May by the way.

Wonder why they have decided not to base an A320 in MAN this year? Will an A321 replace it maybe?
