Monarch have aquired two further second hand A321's from Cyprus Airways. Due to be delivered in time for the summer season.
They were only delivered to CY around 6-8 months ago! Wonder why they're getting rid of them so soon? That was a rather short lease.

Hi everyone,

I'm really keen to fly on either the A300 or B757 prior to their retirement but it's proving difficult to find out what their summer 2013 schedules are.

The most prferable route for me would be LGW - PMI and back (dates flexible. As one of the most popular routes seems a reasonable assumption that the route may feature in the schedule of these a/c at least on one day of the week?

In 2011 a MAN based A300 did a W pattern to PMI calling in at LTN but doesn't seem to be this year.

Would anyone be able to tell me if either of these types will be operating this route and if so what day/flight numbers?

Many thanks in advance for any help

Hesitate to post this, but have a read. Flew on two A300s years ago, might try one last blast before they go.

GIB

MKY661

The extra Manchester service is operated by the look of it by a BHX aircraft made available by the cancellation of the Milan service and reshuffling on the Weekend schedule.

BHX got an extra SSH added on a Saturday with the GIB moving from Satuday to Sunday.

I assume there will be some more shuffling with the weekday schedule with BHX-MUC freeing up a Monday, Wednesday and Friday slot now that is to be axed.

Sunday night sees an extra Palma adding to the extra Friday night Pamla for high season. This makes the high-season night flights from BHX, PMI (FRI/SAT/SUN), AGP (FRI, SAT & SUN) and IBZ (THU-SUN).

None of the MAN-GIB flights on any day are operated by Manchester aircraft in the summer season. The flights on Monday, Wednesday & Friday are operated by a Luton based aircraft so you could be right here, unless the flight on a Sunday is also operated by a Luton based aircraft.

BHX-BCN

Monarch have acted quickly to fill the BHX-Munich sschedule - Barcelona now daily from the beginning of May.

I think BHX during one summer a few years ago without BCN with FR operating REU & GRO and Baby chopping it but this year 11 a week plus GRO and REU by FR.

BHX has also seen some high-season night-fllight additions with Tuesday Tenerife and Friday, Saturday and Sunday have IBZ, PMI and AGP although some of those were originally scheduled (IBZ ops Thur and Monday night as well) but certainly upping the rotations.

Anyone know what is based during summer 2013? I believe it is something like this but I've probably made a mistake somewhere:

Manchester:
2X A300-600
7X A321-200
1X A330-200
1X 757-200

Birmingham:
4X A320-200
5X A321-200

Leeds/Bradford:
2X A320-200

East Midlands:
2X A321-200

London-Luton:
2X A320-200
2X A321-200

London Gatwick:
1X A300-600
1X A320-200
5X A321-200
1X A330-200
2X 757-200

So MAN the biggest base by seats and even BHX is bigger than LGW. How things have changed.

I believe LGW has the most seats or flights this summer, overtaking MAN (or did that happen last summer?).
