A330 which passed through NCL at the weekend was running approx 4 hours late, maybe just subbing to catch up?

The MAN-BCN route was hit by 6 & 8 hour delays at the back end of May, so the Monarch delays this summer aren't new.

What?! So there are more airlines that have delays than Flyglobespan?! Well...I never!

If we are on that subject the worst delay I have ever witnessed was by a MON competitor - TCX. I was in Cayo Coco three summers ago and a flight from MAN was delayed 48 hours! They got the aircraft over the Atlantic and it had to return, then there were more problems and it too 2 days to get the plane out the Cuba. As we were one of the nearest hotels to the airport we housed a lot of the passengers returning home and I really felt for them.

So if your are experiencing an hour or two delay and think that you are the most unlucky person in the world - have a thought for those passengers.

Flying out on Friday to Larnaca courtesy of Monarch PR dept from Man.
Certainly hope we don't see the kind of delays seen on here.
We land at 0250 on Tuesday and I'm in work at 11.
Might have to make that 'still in Cyprus' call!

Monarch have been having problems at Man, evidently due to staff shortages with our handling agents at Man.
Noticed this morning a few flights delayed due to late boarding, no idea who's fault this is down to.
Have a good flight.

No APU on the plane, 15 mins waiting otherwise we would have been plunged into darkness...
All the fun of the fair with MON!!!
What an utterly useless post. I bet you post on your local community forum complaining when the postman is 10 mins late. Oooohh errr.

Put yourself in my position - interested in all things airline, esp UK airlines. I see a post on the Monarch thread. I think "oh I wonder what's been said, maybe something about recruitment that I can pass onto my friends that need jobs". I click.

"JESUS CHRIST what a nob head" I think.

CFM.

PS

I was late for work last week, caused the LGW - AGP to run 1 min late......oh no hit the panic button and relay on PPRuNe!

HAHAHAHA

Looks like Monarch have increased the price of the extra leg room seats.

Looks like fuel is north of $140. Oxfam is a charity, not Monarch.

New Airline- CelebAir!!!

CelebAir takes to the skies with Monarch


- Real plane, Real people, Real celebrity service -

Award winning leisure airline Monarch will be sharing its 40 years of aviation experience with a host of famous faces from Monday 14 July, as its sets about training a group of celebrities, who must measure up to Monarch’s standards and take on roles across the airline including cabin crew, check-in and ticket desk.

The training is in anticipation of a new ITV2 show, CelebAir, which will be televised in the Autumn and will see the celebrities working for the airline over an eight week period. During this time they will be flying customers from London Gatwick to a host of top European destinations as they battle it out to become CelebAir’s star employee and win money for their chosen charity. Faced with the challenges and situations that are presented to Monarch staff on a regular basis, the celebrities will be rated and judged by their own customers as well as Monarch staff, with the worst performing celebrity each week being given the boot.

CelebAir flights will operate to destinations such as Faro, Alicante, Malaga, Ibiza, Menorca, Tenerife and Cyprus, with customers being able to book seats on these flights via Monarch. A Monarch airbus has been rebranded and will operate in CelebAir colours until the end of the series, with CelebAir customers booked on flights being served by celebrities on the ground and in the sky, as they all endeavour to deliver Monarch’s exemplary customer care whilst keeping a smile on their faces at 35,000 feet!

Commenting on the CelebAir partnership, managing director of Monarch Airlines, Tim Jeans said, "As the most experienced airline in the UK, who better to provide the support and infrastructure for the celebrities and CelebAir than Monarch? Celebrating our 40th anniversary this year, no UK carrier has a better knowledge of the airline industry than we do and we are proud to be sharing this expertise with the celebrities and taking responsibility for their training and mentoring."

Also commenting on CelebAir, Zai Bennett, Controller of ITV2 said: "CelebAir promises to be a huge reality event this autumn on ITV2. It is an incredibly ambitious project on a scale not seen before in reality TV. This definitely isn't a show for work-shy celebrities, we're taking on a real plane, with real passengers with real holidays to go on - it promises to be an amazing trip."

Prior to starting work, the celebrities will all undergo and pass Monarch’s rigorous six-week training programme which is regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and they will be required to adhere to these standards whilst working for CelebAir. They will be monitored and mentored by Monarch staff at all times, with the pressure on to remain a CelebAir crew member for as long as possible and ultimately win the show!

CelebAir will be televised on ITV2 in the Autumn, with seats on CelebAir flights being available to book from Monday 14 July.

Hopefully it's part of a plan to fly celebs out of the country - never to return....

Here's one for you:

On entering the RZ, who would you support?

a) The egotistical Z-list celeb
b) The egotistical security goon
c) Neither - pray for mutually assured destruction

I think bmi who have been going for 70 odd years (albeit with a couple of name changes over the years) might question the bit from Mr Jeans about no UK airline having a better knowledge of the airline industry...............

Why do these bufoons really think their enititled to the term celebrity. Ohh yes I forgot, its because its for charity.

Al Scarface Pacino is a celebrity.

Anyways I'm Monarch LGW based so hopefully I'll get to watch them mess it up personally.

How long before Jade Goody asks wheres Spain
