This past weekend, there was a Monarch A320 sitting on the FedEx ramp in IAH. Does anyone know why it was there?

Also worth noting, on Sunday, the planes were taking off from rwy 27!

Notevery day we find light winds. What do we do in these situations? Fly.

Quite a journey for a Monarch A320. Something different for you chaps across the pond though. Obviously not a large group if it was just an A320. Shame you didnt get their last A300 on the charter.

According to a report at Houston Spotters, it's an ex-TACA bird being leased to Monarch, also according to the report it's an A321.

According to Jethro's there are 7 aircraft due in the next 2 months, 4 of them, including a new A321 with sharklets by the time the A300 flight to BHX takes place on the 13th April.

Hopefully some of these will be at BHX so they can be seen before going to other bases.
