On-board one of only 2 Monarch Airbus A330's, this one was G-SMAN operating ZB546 from Manchester to Lanzarote, rather than its usual longhaul routes. This was due to the May half term attracting higher passenger volumes.
Great flight and fantastic sound, turn up the volume!
Flight No.: ZB546
Aircraft: Airbus A330-243
Engine Type: Rolls-Royce Trent 772B
Departure Time: 11:10 (Actual 11:30)
Arrival Time: 15:40 (Actual 15:25)
Flight Duration: 3 hours 55 minutes (approx.)
Cruising Alt: 35,000ft, FL350

*Notice we begin taxiing on one engine and engine number 2 starts during the taxi. This is becoming more & more common in air travel while taxiing to / from the runway. Again after arrival at Lanzarote engine 2 was shut down and we arrived on stand using the power of only one.
Check out my spotting video in Lanzarote which includes this A330 up close from the outside departing back to Manchester. Nice to get footage of an A330 there and to actually be on it! 😛 A330's are less regular in ACE than 767's.
But also be sure to check out my return flight video on-board a Thomson Airways Boeing 767 back to Gatwick, filmed from a similar view as this, just in front of the engine to get the great views and sound!

As with all of my *Full Flight* videos it includes every part of the flight, not literally 4 hours of nothing.
