Either things are tightening up again or I'm getting sloppy. Had the first three done for soft (are they really that soft to warrant rejection?) and the last one (Monacrh) for contrast (given the soft, milky, morning light the contrast looks right to me).

Appealed the EasyJet and Monarch and both were accepted. I have (and have had for a good while now) a lot of faith in the heads, however with so many successful appeals this past few months I'm beginning to think the regular screening team needs to iron out some over-zealous decision-making.

Quoting vikkyvik (Reply 4): For what it's worth, I don't see jaggies on the Wizz; it looks soft to me.
I see jaggies on the rudder leading edge, registration and titles/windows. Though in saying that, I generally see jaggies when viewing accepted pics with this monitor. The contrast between the bright rudder and the background really brings it out though.
I think there are some soft spots too like the dark edge immediately around the cockpit, the bottom of the fuselage, maybe wheels and maybe the right horiz stab.

Interesting to see how different monitors can be. I don't see jaggies in any of those places (did you mean rudder trailing edge?).
I do generally see some jaggies on accepted photos (including my own), but probably not as many as you do, simply due to different monitors.
I'm actually kind of hesitant to change my monitor, cause I'm so used to editing and viewing photos on it, and I feel like it represents what A.net screeners see reasonably well, though who knows if that's true.
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

That's what I see on my screen too and what I was refering to, although it still looks a little soft at the same tme.
Quoting jaktrax (Reply 10): That's exactly why I don't wish to upgrade my old monitor!
When my old CRT screen went bang 18 months ago, I was depressed for about a month! I hate LCD screens with a passion and wish they'd never been invented, for tv as well. While they may offer better colour and contrast, I don't think they offer the same picture quality and some photo look horrible on them compared to CRT. A case of technology doesn't always improve things.
