LTN (Luton, England) -> (Tel Aviv, Israel) ZB (Monarch) A320 YOU ARE HERE! / VOUS ETES ICI!
My family lives in Radlett, which is 20 minutes by driving from Luton Airport (LTN). I had ordered a taxi for 11.30AM as the flight should depart on 2.30PM.
First view of LTN terminal, now in maintenece:
The 2 check-in counters for TLV flight. You can see some parts of the city on the screens. I went to the priority desks on the right side, there wasn't a queue and It was free, but no one of the passengers knew it ;)
The line for Wizz Air's flights, most of them were to some cities in Romania and eastern Europe.
There was some shops before the secuity that passengers for NON-EU countries could buy there, also there was signs in Hebrew and Romania. May you ask why there are signs in Hebrew? The answer is as LTN serves about 4-6 daily flights from Israel (Eilat-VDA and Tel Aviv-TLV, 2*LY,2*EZY,1*ZB, some flight operted by Arkia and Israir) there is a big crowd that speaks hebrew and their English isn't the best :)
The line for the Boarding for our flight to TLV, Gate 12. There wasn't a Passport Control! I was shocked!

The cabin of this old A320 upon boarding:
Seat pitch was horrible and tight, about 28". The slim seats on Easy jets planes provides more legroom than those old seats in Monarch, even they could recline and more comfortable:
