Monarch delays

Anyone any ideas why Monarch are being hit by delays at MAN again, yesterdays CFU and DLM flights had delays of around three hours or more, this mornings PMI flight was delayed by an hour and this afternoons PMI flight is also delayed by an hour as of time of writing, are we about to see a repeat of last year with delays getting worse for this airline, I was under the impression that the new boss was tackling the delay problems it would seem he cannot do anything about it like his predecessor , granted other airlines have had slight delays at MAN today but not as bad as Monarch are experiencing yet again. Me and my family fly to ACE with Monarch next month I can see if these delays continue it will be our last time flying with them.

from todays e-tid

Monarch back in the black

31 May 2011

The Monarch Group made £1.4m profit in the year to 31 October, according to The Times yesterday.


This compared with losses of £30.3m in the year before, for the parent of Monarch Airlines and Cosmos Holidays.

The report attributed the return to profit to staff cuts and the sale of assets.

The workforce fell to 2,791 from 3,086 and the group also sold two hangars at Luton airport for £6.4m, said The Times.

It reported that sales dropped 4% to £757m, partly because of the closure of airspace during the volcanic ash disruption in April 2010.

The airline division cut losses to £9.3m from £19.1m in the year before, while Cosmos Holidays saw turnover and passenger numbers down 8% and 10%, said the report.

The Times said chairman Iain Rawlinson described 2010 as ‘very successful’ after its management restructure which led to operational improvements.

However this year is challenging because of high oil prices and weaker consumer spending, he said in the report.

Airline losses down to £9M = succesful year?

G-MONR has had probelms all weekend its apu packed up but i think they fixed it yesterday morning.. G-MONS came in late morning to operate a flight and then shortly after MONR departed. I think Monarch's most reliable aircraft have been the 757's.

Thanks Scandic, I suppose problems like this will arise more and more often with these elderly a/c what are they 21 / 22 years old now?, a friend and his family was on the PMI flight this morning and called me a short time ago and said there would have been enough room on an A321 and that the a/c is showing its age and is ready for retirement or a make over, I think he said it was MONR, unfortunately he said he will never book Monarch again as this is the third time he has used them and the third time they have been delayed by an hour or more, he said the staff at MAN where totally useless, the a/c was waiting with crew on board but they where not allowed to board, when he asked they just shrugged their shoulders and told to wait. These two a/c problems do not explain why other flights are still being delayed either.
Seems a bit strange that the longest delays seem to be with Monarch.
Oh well lets hope our flights will be on time although with monarch's reputation I doubt it.

Maybe it is not all based on the flight Sim.
The most reliable a/c for the two months of March & April was indeed the B757.
No technical delays, 100% dispatch reliability, maybe you owe SCANDIC an apology.

Thanks for that J but I was looking for a more detailed one i.e. stating which aircraft was assigned to that flight if you know what I mean.

for example a while ago there was a list of what routes the A300 undertook, this is the sort of stuff I am looking for.

Its good that they have gone back to the old M crown on the Monarch name but the colours arent the best in the world. Especially the bright pink and the purple colour is sickly.

Well, as for the recent negative comments about MON, my family and I have used MON many times over the last 16 years and every flight has been a pleasure. The only delay was on a 321 out of LTN due to a slat retraction problem, which was fixed in an hour. Crew and ground staff have always been most professional and friendly. However, I've never flown out of MAN so can't comment on the operation there.

Given the choice, as pax I'd take a 757 over a 320/321 any day. Amazing t/o performance and more comfortable. Pity they won't be around for much longer.

What is going on with the Monarch branding? First the spacing of the Monarch lettering was more closer together... Then FlyMonarch.com without the crown being used... Then monarch.co.uk (lowercase m)... Now Monarch.co.uk with the crown & the spacing reverting back to the original logo & a Capital M again... Identity crisis?

Tartin ton,
I was just repeating what he told me he said there was absolutely loads of empty seats on the flight and he thought an A321 could do the flight thats all.
Naturally I do not have any information as to the actual numbers on that flight and it was only my friends opinion.

TCX69 this is why:-

Monarch is switching the bulk of its business to scheduled services as part of a major rebrand.

It aims to have 80% of its revenue coming from scheduled flights by summer 2012.

Under the new strapline ‘Fly your way. Every day’, the airline is offering basic fares and then leaving customers to choose if they want to pay for extras like additional leg room and on-board refreshments.
