This is brilliant news and shows Monarch are comitted to the A300's and are likely to be in service for a good few years!
If they are offering the premium service, one would assume they will be operating far more long haul charters and taking some of the pressure off the A330's which operate a very heavy schedule.
The A300 has never been a big hit with charter airlines and while other scheduled airlines are beginning to replace them with A330's and 777's, Monarch prove that they are right kind of aircraft for them! They are equally at home flying a short haul for example to Palma as they are flying long haul to Goa in India.
Until recently I did think the A300's days were numbered as none of them had the new livery but they are slowly painting them and G-MONS is their first example. Monarch dont seem to be in a rush updating the liveries on there aircrafts!
Are the A300's capable of flying non-stop to Florida, Caribean and Mexico???
