Hi just found out today that I will be flying on 1 of the MON A300-600's and was wondering what the layout is (ie 2-4-2) and any experiences on an A300 that anyone has had.

Cheers

Stu

Nope, its 3-3-3. Its cramped, they are reasonably noisy. The only IFE is the screens that come down from the roof. Not particularly clean or well kept. Your average ageing charter airline aircraft i'm afraid  Smile

Was definately 3-3-3 when I last flew on one. Pretty cramped but was fairly well kept I recall. I think they are 1989 / 1990 build though?

If Mark Haley is your first officer tell him he still owes me a tenner.  Laugh out loud



I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...

go for rows 9 or 31 (any seat) or 36AB 36HJ if you can, Monarch now offer pre bookable seats for any pax subject to a small charge so could be well worth it, find their customer services number on the Monarch website.

EGGD is right 3-3-3 which is awkward for couples or families of 4

what route are you flying?

Yes, Steady Eddie - We were going on holiday to Tunisia at the time and there were 4 of us, luckily we got 3 in the middle and one next to the row. Sitting in the middle sucks though.

BDRules,
If you look on Monarch's website they have seating plans for all the types they operate, including the A300.

3-3-3 but I think it's 3-2-3 in the last couple of rows, if it's not too late maybe get two blocks of 2, one in front of each other?


fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

I've also flown Monarch's A300, MAN-TFS. I managed 4hrs on it, its no different to other aircraft charters used as far as seat pitch goes - just hope you don't get put in the middle row. The seating is 3-3-3, apart from the last eight rows and the very first row which are 2-3-2. Monarchs A300 seat 361 - the same as their DC-10 carried. In my experience with them, they seem like the best charter airline in the UK, always a happy crew, good service for a charter and a nice mix of aircraft to fly on.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

And yes, all the info about MON's A300 is on their website...

Hope that helps
