Whilst at BRS this morning,i saw a Monarch 767 taking off.He certainly was'nt hanging back on the power,and had a terrific climb rate.I think Monarch have now taken over the cruise charters from TOM,and this flight was bound for Bridgetown.Id imagine this flight would need to refuel en-route,and this might explain why he got off the ground so quickly.

Id have thought maybe a refuel at MAN en-route.Seemed very sharpish on take off!
I think FCA are stopping at EMA or MAN,when they start long haul to Cuba,Florida next year from BRS.
Runway is'nt long enough at BRS for heavily laden long haul aircraft.

I don't understand why airlines are operating long-haul from BRS if they need to stop en-route, surely that costs them more? Why not just use CWL, or even let passengers continue travelling to CWL and LON as they always have in the past?
