Monarch Experiances

Sun Dec 10, 2000 9:15 pm

This may belong in the Trip Reports forum, but hey!

Have any of you ever flown on Monarch Airlines? If so,

  • If so what route?
  • What aircraft?
  • What where they like?

    I am asking, because I am flying London Gatwick - Paphos at Easter. Probably a 757 :-(

    Fly Monarch

    I have flown Monarch twice, both flight to Stockholm from Aberdeen and both with 757 aircraft.

    Hi Ben

    Won't be back to LHR or LGW until next year. Just one visit per year.

    Last time was August 18th-21st.

    I still have tons of shots to develop. I like to keep them exclusive so you won't find a lot more posted here.

    You will need to look at my own site.

    When I plan my next trip, I will give you a shout and maybe meet at runway 27R for landings

    Manchester to Goa the last two years on A300-600R. Now an older aircraft and showing it's age. Very cramped being 3x3x3 at the front and 2x3x2 towards the rear - row 30 is the exit row. At least the headphones were free and not £5 per time like some charter flights!

    MAN-TFS-MAN A300-600R
    I thought the service was great, I am flying them again next summer, EDI-Las Palmas 757.
    When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!
