Monarch was the airline that kick started my career in aviation back in 1981. Best company I have ever worked for (except my own of course).....

When I see how the German government keeps Air Berlin afloat, and how the Irish Aviation Authority appear to do or say nothing over the Ryanair shambles that is filling the headlines, and see Monarch, an institution as far as I am concerned, be allowed to fold over night, it makes me wonder is being British a good thing ?

All airlines need money, that is obvious but they also need help sometimes and some airlines deserve it more than others. Ryanair deserve to go next after years of abusing staff and passengers in one way or another.

At least Monarch can hold it's head up high and say they never treated staff/pax poorly.

Sad day for UK aviation.
