Doubt it. They don't fit the new business model which won't have Monarch going to TAB or anywhere like that. So they won't be missed,..

Expensive end of lease, needs a new engine 1 week before it finishes flying. Must have got special dispensation for non pax ferry to an airport that has the capability to do it.

I suspect the engines are leased separately from the hull, quite common these days.

Quick enquiry when do the B738 deliveries begin? Will the last planes to be replaced be A320 or A321? Is there a time frame. Last I read the orders were never even confirmed.

First delivery is April 2018.
Some of the Airbuses will be around for 3 or 4 years after the first deliveries.
Monarch operated its last planned charter flight today, the end of over 47 years of charter operations.

I well remember the days when Monarch was just a charter airline - their noisy B720's and 1-11's operating charters out of LTN, my local airport.

I hope that their new strategy to focus on low cost, short haul is the right one and they can start to grow again.

FR24 shows it doing precisely that.

Flew Monarch on charters for years, usually in the middle of the night down to PMI when I was a young lad, happy days setting foot on 732, 733 and the 752.

Happy Days

Why have Monarch Airlines ended up having to lease in 5 aircraft today?

Titan Airways
A320 G-POWI = Manchester
B752, G-ZPAX = London Luton
B733, G-POWC = Leeds/Bradford
Jettime
B737, OY-JTY = Birmingham
Privilege Style
B752, EC-ISY = London Gatwick

Probably due to the fact that they haven't got very many of their own left
