Is it me but I do not recall a previous occasion where repatriation flights have been arranged prior to the announcement of bankruptcy.

If I am wrong please correct me.

Might be because circumstances may be unique and not collapse due to bankruptcy but a planned closure and quick wind down.

I'm inclined to think that if this were the case, then there would be no continuation of sales if it were as planned as that.

Is there no feasible situation that another company, be it; hotel chain, tour operator, cruise company or a.n.other has issues and that Monarch/CAA may be involved in a joint repatriation effort?

On the flip side, is there any reason that the CAA may have to suspend Monarch's AOC temporarily? I don't know much about goings on at Monarch.

Monarch!?

Heard that monarch planes have all been moved to a remote parking spots at airports and that planes have been chartered by the CAA for rescue flights. Apparently the time mirror those of above mentioned company.
Being a rumour network what truth is there in this??

Yes, in the past Monarch has in fact been contracted by the CAA to co-ordinate repatriation flights. But if that's the case this time, why on earth not say so. Flat denials are so unconvincing, and it is obvious something is going on.

Let us assume these are rumours for a moment. If they are not dealt with ASAP, they will be going bust.

Putting out statements on Twitter that "we can confirm these rumours are not correct" is worth as much as a chocolate teapot, and only leads to questions about why the twitter account is going past normal times.

There needs to be a statement from the CAA ASAP if these are only rumours.

Not a laughing matter!!

This is the internet and social media at it's very worst!! Will the people who are posting in various fora feel any twinges of guilt if the result is hundreds of people being put out of work as a result of unfounded rumours??

I really hope they lose some sleep if the worst happens, as a result of rumours.

I suspect most of the rank and file would have absolutely no idea that this was in the offing so no point in castigating them

This really has to be the tabloids or competition running scared at Monarch's newly promoted brand and increased loads. Rumours can damage customer confidence; the origin of the rumours knows this and that intent is spiteful. If there are other airlines sniffing around Luton, any devaluing of a business can only be good for them. It wouldn't be the first time companies have tactically planted a seed in the press.

Other airlines would not sub-charter and pay for half a dozen or more long haul wide bodied aircraft and give them schedules that mirrored Monarchs just to create a rumour !

The facts are the CAA has chartered these aircraft, they are mostly in position now, and look to taking on some of MON's schedule.

Beyond that we've no idea why or whats going on right now.

Rumours inside Monarch that it is to do with their handling company going bust in BHX / LGW and the flights are mostly to get replacement staff to those airports to handle their flights. Either situation it means a large number of staff feeling worried over the next few days by the speculation.
