Monarch / Zoom A320 Questions...

Wed May 28, 2003 3:24 am

According to a reliable fleet listing website, Monarch's A320 G-OZBB, which has been on lease to Zoom (as C-GZUM), has now be returned and is in storage at LTN, to be returned to the lessor due to expiry of lease.
What aircraft are Zoom now using?? Also, are they still going to operate to the UK this summer, if so, with what aircraft??

Furthermore, is G-OZBB if being returned to the lessor, then what about Monarch's other older 320's (eg MONW and MONX etc). Are these also nearing end of lease? Is this why Monarch are getting the new A321s??

Also, it may interest some of you to know that according to the same site, Monarch have purchased the DC10 they were leasing, to use it as a ground training aircraft! Seems a bit strange? this was a relatively young DC10, I'm sure it had some more life in it yet. Oh well, a sign of the present conditions I suppose.

Thanks for the info... I had thought they were flying BHX, and also I think LGW, maybe others too. Anyone know what they are currently using if the 320 is back in the UK? Also the Monarch 320 status... thanks again  Big thumbs up
