would tend to agree with CSman..Just had to have a confab with their customer services this morning..Although initially their fault, they did their best to resolve the problem and I got the impression they were trying hard to please on customer service. I came off the phone satisfied. They created a good impression and I`ll use them again. Certainly better than Easyjet behind the scenes!!

Hopefully Hanian taking a stake will mean that Monarch can continue as Monarch and not be merged into another company. Be a shame to see the company disappear after so many years and just as they have gotten back on track financially.

I notice that ex-Ryanair 737s seem to end up on different continents. I wonder if this is written in to the lease by Ryanair?

Gives Monarch the opportunity to commence type conversion early though and maybe part of the MAX order to extract Monarch from Airbus?

Beyond me how a company the size of monarch can compete long term in what appears to to be a ever decreasing pool with some very big predators swimming around

Maybe if the chinese take a stake they may be able to build on their recent success

Boeing 738's

What is the latest position with the 738?

I remember checking some booking engines including Monarch's own site a month or so ago and found the first 738 was in the schedule at BHX in late January and by late March three based.

Now I can't find any.

Has there been a major re-think at BHX since Jet2 announced their new BHX base?

Just looking on the Monarch website for Stockholm as reported on the Manchester thread... although with no joy.

Any reason why their route map is so horrifically out of date?

LAX_LHR on the MAN thread has also reported Zagreb & Oporto from MAN. I'm not sure if these will just be from MAN but we'll see.

LTN-FCO & LGW-AYT remain unbookable atm but with more flights still to come these may become bookable again.
