Wonder what aircraft will do it when the 757's go?

I'm sure a sharkletted A321 fitted out with 190 seats would cope admirably, as will the A321neo.

Don't think 190 seats would do for the amount those guys are paying...I think the 757 has 92 seats for these tours? Mr@SpottyM will know...

92 seats is correct:

I note lack of pricing on the webpage

Wouldnt really class a dated Monarch 757 as a Private Jet either tbh

If you bother to download the brochure it says Au$29,400...plus the age of the jet is pretty irrelevant if it's refurbed and re-configured for the purposes of the tour operator

Here are some promotional pics for the reconfigured B757 flights to give you an idea:

Do Monarch actually own those seats, or do they rent them in for this flight. How long would it normally take to re-fit the cabin from the normal configuration in to this fit.

MAN-GIB Puzzle

Just a quick query ...

I receive Monarch's special offers e.mails on a regular basis. Recently I have received a couple of editions which appear tailored to offer deals for Manchester area customers. The format shows a list of destinations alongside the fares offered from MAN ... with just two exceptions. The first is BHX-NCE; understandable, as MON do not operate to NCE from MAN. However, the real anomaly is BHX-GIB ... GIB being a destination which is served by MON from MAN. Do we know whether the MAN-GIB service is under threat ... it still appears on the booking tool? Or is the company just trying to push extra bookings towards the BHX-GIB service (is it struggling?).

Thanks for any insights offered on this.

I don't think either GIB route is struggling or will struggle. When Bmibaby offred EMA-GIB apparently it was really popular and the Government of Gibraltar tried to find a replacement carrier to do a route from the Midlands. Both MAN-GIB and BHX-GIB don't operate on the same day either (until May where they will both operate on a Sunday). MAN-GIB has also had its frequency increased and what I have heard is the Monarch flights are always packed and popular. EasyJet's LPL-GIB was dropped because apparently loads were a lot lower than expected and this route had the lowest demand. So I don't really see either of them to be dropped. BHX-GIB has only just started as well so I'm sure over the years it will get even more popular. And GIB also has it's new terminal fully open now so the airport is much better tn it was.

Also a few years ago MAN-GIB was not stopped because of lack of demand, it was stopped because Monarch had issues with the government there at the time.

EZY LPL-GIB

Interestingly having read the figures on another forum, appears the load factors out of Liverpool were increasing and about 87% when they pulled it. Obviously didnt fit with their strategy sad to say...

Cyprus Airways A321 5B-DCO was ferried LCA-OLB today as CY003P for painting into Monarch livery. This will become G-ZBAF.
