Miami International (leased from TUI Ned) is en-route to Las Palmas now, not sure if this is part of the rescue flights?

Monarch's ground handler in Gatwick is Airline Services not Aviator.

What if????

What if it is nothing to do with Monarch and it's actually a North American holiday/cruise company that has gone under and that is why it's all North American/Canadian airlines that are doing the flights to bring their own people back staging via the UK

Also, Monarch are still posting job vacancies to start in October which would seem pointless if they are closing down

We'll see one way or the other in the morning, won't we. My heart goes out to the staff of Monarch who will have a sleepless night worrying.

Unfortunately it entirely normal if a business closes down abruptly for most departments to carry on as normal until an announcement is made - this includes recruitment. Management would say, sometimes truthfully, that they have been trying to salvage the business right up to the last minute.

The people who launch routes, recruit crew, in charge of PR etc etc are just employees running the airline. They won't be privy to anything about any potential wind down or administration so there is no other option for them to be busy as usual until told otherwise.

If Monarch aren't in trouble, they're doing their best to get into it! A lot doesn't make sense .

TUI 787, Atlas and Miami Air in on the action now too. Really growing legs now. Can there be such a thing as a well organised failure?

[QUOTE]What's strange is why would TS be at MAN and OY207 & 819 be at LGW if they are repatriation flights? Wouldn't they all be down route ready?
[QUOTE]

At a guess I would say they would need to drop crews off who will presumably be based at MAN and other UK airports during the operation.

There's a TOM flight to ACE on a 787 tomorrow, or is this an extra one you've found?

Yes G-OZBZ is operating the Ibiza flight and is just taking off from Gatwick. Birmingham-Ibiza flight has also taken off 4 minutes ahead of schedule. Manchester-Ibiza flight will be the last to take off today.

Arriving MON's at MAN not even going to terminal. Last 2 got stand 249 and 71 respectively, which are both remote stands and never the case.

To quote the pilot "that wasn't what I wanted to hear" when given 249.

I don't work for Monarch but have friends there. Apparently staff were paid 2 days ago so they are solvent. However the ATOL cert may be the issue which is why the CAA has got involved. If that can be resolved the company can go on trading like any other.
