It seems that tonights Hurghada flight was delayed due to security issues with baggage before departing.

Aircraft eventually left 90 mins late without passenger baggage - apparently 2 other UK bound flights had the same problem.

I am surprised that you care 111KAB. You have made it your mission to wish ill on the airline and its employees despite winning a court case against the airline but that does not seem to be enough to satiate your hatred.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ur-ordeal.html

There appears to be something of an obsession in elements of the press regarding Monarch. One day they are going to be sold to some Chinese concern, the next they are taking over any number of "struggling" European airlines!

TUI struggling? I wouldn't have thought so.

Monarch - Greybull options

To quote the relevant paragraph: -

"Greybull is assessing several different options as part of its review of Monarch, from potential acquisitions to mergers, as well as a potential sale to a bigger player. Greybull rescued Monarch from certain bankruptcy in the summer of 2014. The airline was just hours away from being declared insolvent, which would have left tens of thousands of holidaymakers stranded around the world".

It would seem Greybull are maybe dropping pebbles into the pool, to see what the ripples bring back.
easyjet might be panicked by the thought of a chinese group coming in but there again I would have thought that the CMA would take a dim view of an easy takeover, especially at LTN at LGW.

Potential purchasers

Easyjet........................... aside from slots not sure what it adds
Ryanair.................. slots at Gatwick where it has few would be interesting
IAG................... would be surprised
Jet2................possibly but doubtful

Thank you very much for the based details, really appreciate it

I'd really hope MON go for Jet2 (Dart Group) I think it offers the best chance for MON/LS to work together

I think what Greybull are probably doing is building up a possible bank of bidders then play one off against another and that way get the best return for the airline .

Not sure that leaves the hardworking workforce , hopefully all still with good jobs when its eventually sold.

I suspect Grey Bull are pretty keen to secure a sale before they have to fork out for a fleet of 737MAX which the airline ordered before being bought by them.

Classy bit of "journalism" - the final sentence of the piece is...

EasyJet has so far declined to comment on its proposed takeover bid.
which doesn't quite tie in with the headline

Just a minor point, the B737MAX were not ordered before the takeover by Greybull.

The airbus fleet would fit perfectly in with VY's current fleet. It would be a great way for them to begin expanding further at LGW

The position regarding Monarch seems confused. I find it odd that Greystone are on the one hand putting it up for sale to realise their investment whilst simultaneously looking at bid targets which would require more capital.

There's no way IAG would sell VY, so that is a complete non-starter.

I didn't say anything about IAG selling VY. What I said was IAG could buy ZB allowing VY to expand at LGW in competition with Easyjet

Do you think BA would be interested in any of the slots, to maybe start new long haul routes, maybe split with a few going to Vueling? They have an awful lot of long haul aircraft on order, that need to be based somewhere.

I suspect Grey Bull are pretty keen to secure a sale before they have to fork out for a fleet of 737MAX which the airline ordered before being bought by them.
Thats my thinking too!

Greybull are renowned for flying in, and recue-ing a company in trouble, but the moment they can make a decent return on the money they invest, they quickly leave!

The Airbus fleet have been good to Greybull since the takeover, and for them they probably see no short term reason to replace them and short term is all Greybull are interested in Monarch for.

Why would they be interested in paying for the airline to get a new fleet and all the associated costs?

Even though I am sure easyJet have no interest in getting a Boeing 737-MAX fleet, they have little to choice but to bid for Monarch to ensure no other airlines swoops in and gains 10 aircraft based slots at LGW. Especially if the likes of Norwegian were to gain them and also the access to bases at other UK airports.

I can't believe that the 737 Max orders are a barrier to takeover/acquisition whatever, this has happened before, the aircraft are sold on if not required.
On a separate note, does anyone know the numbers/percentage of slots easy and Monarch hold at Gatwick?
