Pretty sad to see it go this way for Monarch


Think the idea of the 737's was poor, and the fact they are dropping so many destinations is again poor


Its sad to see. I remember the days of MON charters with inflight entertainment etc.. one of the best airlines


Now it seems they want to be Ryanair


Flying just isn't the same

Most of these I believe are under review, so we may see them back on the website soon

The 757's have swapped airports. DAJB to LGW AND MONJ to MAN both coming from Zakynthos. Won't be the same when their gone from the fleet.

I don't think the 73's will happen, surely they need to get the company balanced and that would be easier sticking with the airbus instead of going for a totally different manufacturer. Don't rate the 737 anyway airbus all day long.

Exactly - you'd have absolutely nothing to talk about !

Interesting to hear the A330's may be leaving the fleet. Although this does make me wonder, what will be operating the long haul Sanford (Orlando) flights next year as they are already available to book? An A321 perhaps?
That is possibly the most wishful idea - In reality it would be a logistical nightmare and will never happen as it would probably require 3 stops - if the 330 goes, as does the longhaul :P

I never thought about the range (Im relatively new to being interested in planes!)

However, that does raise another point that if the A330's go by next Summer, what will be left to operate the Orlando flights which are already on sale. Surely they couldn't be cancelled and customers refunded?

They are just cosmos etc charter reserved seats, they can still sell them but just get seats on another carrier.

Actually an A321 would probably be possible... Great Circle Mapper with a 45 minute or less turnaround, it might not put too many passangers off. And frequency could be increased.

The A321 is not ETOPS cleared and never would be for such an operation. It is a short haul aircraft. However the B757 was cleared because of its range, but still required a tech stop in the Gander area before continuing south.

Cosmos have a history of selling destinations that Monarch don't fly to. Mauritius, Sri Lanka and recently Maldives have all been covered by BA or EK. Can't see why they wouldn't do the same to America, maybe even selling seats on the Norwegian flight.

Can't beat the 757, 737 or 321 will never get close to it.

Agreed, 757MAX or A322 would be a cash cow.

I think Boeing should try doing something more with the 757 to make it into a 757 max or something along those lines.

I agree, superb airplane, if re-engined / airframe upgrade - would be a game changer!

never mind the fact the tooling and equipment was dismantled and sold off years ago.... It would need to be a start from scratch and that is not going to happen

There's an article about Greybull and Monarch - much of it similiar to what the FT wrote. There's a slightly cryptic comment in the article about administrators at PwC being ready to step if Greybull (or somebody else) declines to take over Monarch.
Can someone perhaps reassure as to what 'administrators' means in this case ? I have an idea and I'm hoping it's not the type of administration I'm thinking of.

Administrators

It means the company would be going bust if PwC step in. Game over for Monarch sadly.

It's a shame no one is prepared to look at doing something for the 75, such a great aircraft and sadly disappearing fast.
