This time last year I was asking when Monarch will be painting their 2 A330's into the new colours and somebody said that they will be painted up this Winter 2005/2006. Does anybody know if and when this is going to happen this winter? Can't wait to see them in the new scheme! Thanks

I was thinking about this earlier today, I came to a conclusion that they would be retired but I would like to see if there is any evidence to support this.

Why would they retire them? G-SMAN and G-EOMA were only built in 1999. I'd say the A300s would go before the A330s, but some of them 4 are in the new livery.

Actually all 4 of the A300's are in the new scheme :p

They are thinking about not repainting them as they usually take them out of service in the Winter season. Also, they are always going tech.

They will be re-painted when they come in for a D-check (I think) which is due sometime this winter.

The A330's are making a few flights this winter from LBA to the Carribean so they can't be out of service all winter.

No not all winter. But they aren't utilised as much. Or from what I've been told.

The first 332 is going to Zurich tomorrow for a check and repaint, the other is going on the 18th. There are no Monarch P&O flights from LBA this winter, believe Thomsonfly now have those.

Thats sad news, I was looking forward to seeing a Monarch A330 at LBA, only seen the A300's there.

I imagine Monarch will use them a lot around Christmas/New Year however
