Following on from the discussion about Monarch not taking the B787, perhaps someone here can help.

If I want to fly on one of these aircraft, what routes are available, I am thinking of July next year.

Many thanks.

Im not sure you can rely on getting an A300. I think they mainly use these on medium haul routes to Greece, Egypt and the Gambia etc.

Hope that helps.

The A300's do operate a number scheduled services to popular destinations likes ALC, AGP and PMI...

You will need to spend a bit of time looking through Monarch's reservation system on the website and pretend your making a booking, where you can go through to the screen and choose where you want to sit and from here you will be able to tell the aircraft type.

Nearly all the A300 routes are from LGW and MAN, where they are based...

For the last few years Monarch has been operating an A300 on Saturday's from LTN-PMI during the summer months, which is a W route with a Manchester based aircraft. I just took the opportunity to see if this route is operating next year and it is... Flight number ZB870 and ZB871...

I would however be careful booking anything too far in advanced, as equipment changes could easily happen!

Someone, somewhere (possibly in one of the MAN News threads) listed this summer's Monarch A300 schedule.

Sorry to be partially helpful but maybe someone else remembers where it was?

Thanks for the help.

I will investigate LTN/LGW further.

I just booked a trip along with another anetter on LTN-PMI. The only way to find out if the flight is indeed an A300 you should make a dummy-booking and wait til the seatmap shows. Good to know that ZB870 has been known to get the AB6. I'm not sure if I can handle an equipment change to an A320..


Nothing's worse then flying the same registration twice, except flying it 4 times..

Another note on the A300's...

I've not been on ZB's A300's for a few years now... But from what I hear, the aircrafts are a bit on the tired side on the inside now, as they have been slated to leave the fleet for a few years now, and think the airline is reluctant to spend much on them aesthetically speaking...

They are a great ride, but as you would expect for a charter carrier, a bit cramped with the 28-29 inch seat pitch and 9 abreast seating.

Im not in anyway knocking them, but if you booking a trip don't go expecting the lap of luxury!

PS. If you fly them out of LTN, you definitely feel the power, especially if they are full off the 7000ft runway... Love it how they put the engines to full power before releasing the brakes!

The following is definitely an A300 route, and will remain for summer 2012;

Saturday
MAN-PMI ... ZB548
PMI-LTN ... ZB871
LTN-PMI ... ZB870

Besides that, there are regular flights to the following schedule destinations, as stated before, from Manchester and Gatwick only;
AGP

Thanks for the tip,

Fourtuneately, I am only 5'7". So pitch will not be an issue. Hopefully, I will not be next to a "man mountain", as I like some elbow room.

Many thanks for your PM.

ZB870/871 looks good.

Alternatively, I will try LGW, probably to FAO, (some of the other options, will be VERY warm in July).

Both LGW-ACE´s on a Thursday seem a good bet normally. ZB546 MAN-ACE also on a Thursday is either a A330 or A300.


from the Island with sun and great photo's.. Why not visit Lanzarote
