The A330 were sold in 2012/3 to the Guggenheim group (partners or investment...). This is the organisation which also owns the guggenheim museums.
Monarch was leasing them back for 5 years...until 2018.
Did they manage to get out of the contract? I don't know but it was not in the plan to use these planes after April 2015. Monarch announced it has gone out of long haul.

in-flight fire in the loo

Fires 'deliberately started' on flight from Birmingham - BBC News

beggars belief - what was going through their mind as it does not appear to be a crafty ciggy in the loo.

Looks like this is related to the seriously delayed SSH-BHX flight the other week.

It has been reported that no one was arrested when the plane landed. How can this be right? The man should be in jail or an asylum and should never be allowed on a plane again.

I am truly amazed that it has taken over a week before it was reported in the media.
I said to my colleagues last Friday it is going to be all over the TV and other media by Saturday lunch time.
With reports in the Daily Mail and the Sun of terror at 30000 feet, aircraft misses schools and orphanage due to major fire.

I'm pretty sure when the story first broke it was because passengers coming back to Birmingham were all moaning at not having support from Monarch. Monarch did issue a statement so why they didn't reference the seriousness of the issue instead of making out the plane was faulty and it was just another technical fault, I don't know.

However annoyed passengers must have been at getting delayed for 24 hours, some passengers have now started coming forward with the truth. I read one passenger saying it wasn't that bad really and they were put up in a posh hotel. So it seems typically just a few mouthy ones expecting the earth kicking off and making a big meal out of something that is very difficult to handle anyway from a ground staff perspective.

Well done Monarch crew for handling a difficult situation.

The story broke one week after the passengers which were delayed in SSH by the unserviceable aircraft, had flown back into BHX.

Are the A330's going to another operator, conversion to a freighter or to be broken up ?

Probably this new Monarch routs could be into Oporto and Lisbon as they have requested slots!

Oporto 204 slots

Lisbon 728 slots

From where? My guess would be BHX and LGW for LIS (as LIS isn't served from BHX); and MAN and LGW for OPO.

Anyone got anything concrete, rather than my idle speculation?

Interesting.

So that equates to around 14 slots a week to Lisbon and 4 to Oporto. So probably two UK departure points at best. Given EZY are well established on both from LTN we can probably discount that. Maybe daily from both LGW and MAN to LIS and 4 weekly to OPO from LGW?

I guess we'll know soon enough
