Can anyone tell me how many A300s do MON have based at LGW, MAN and DUB?
Also am I right in thinking that both the 330s are LGW based or is one LGW and one MAN based?
And finally, do the MON flights from NCL-SFB have to go with a weight restriction or are they able to do that flight fully loaded?
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

I think 2 A300's are based at LGW which must mean 1 at MAN and 1 at DUB (If one is based at DUB). I think one of the A330's is LGW based and the other kinda goes up and down between the two, but i cannot confirm that.

It's quite amazing how Monarch manage to fit in all these flights with their A330's and A300's. The A330's, of which they only own 2, are used to operate some European and African routes (Banjul, Luxor and Sharm el Sheikh) as well as Caribbean and Sanford routes. Not only that but i can't imagine that LGW-MLE direct could be operated by anything but an A330 (from their fleet). The A330's are almost always in service, you would very rarely see a MON A330 parked up on a remote stand unused (unless its nightstopping etc). This is another reason why it is the only aircraft type in the fleet that hasn't got the new colours yet.
I'm not completely sure, but i imagine that the A300's would operate a lot of the Gatwick/Manchester to Male/Goa via Bahrain flights, as well as the Amritsar-Bahrain-East Midlands-Gatwick flights. They can also be seen operating a lot of high density short/medium haul routes.

LGW/ I flew LGW-PFO with Monarch last year and it was A300-600. 4 hours late going out and 4and a half hours late coming back. The aircraft used was a MAN based one, the reason for the delays was the late incoming of the aircraft to MAN before ferrying down to LGW. If memory serves me well it was a Wednesday, which is big British day in PFO.
