Noticed lack of ZB / MON activity overnight on Flight Radar 24. MAN-IBZ and IBZ-BHX were operated and that was it. Both flights operated using Airbus A321 equipment.

I think it is fair to say something is going on!
However in my experience (Laker, Air Europe, Excel) airlines that are about to allegedly go bust DO NOT organise repatriation flights from abroad and remote parking for current returning airborne flights.
Employees, those currently at work on flights, or on shift in the office and those it effects outside the company, passengers and contracted agents are the last to know !!
Management will always deny any rumours.

Also in my experience, the number of flights airlines operate reduce at night (except maybe cargo operators) and pilots are never happy parking on remote stands !!

In answer to a previous post, Monarchs payday is the 25th of each month unless that falls on a non working day, in which case it will be paid on the last working day before the 25th.

Let's just wait to see what happens, soon things will become clearer and fingers crossed there is a good outcome for all involved.

ZB7982 to LPA now boarding at LGW gate 14.

So if the rumour is true, passengers won't find out until they're on the plane.

Why on earth would passengers be allowed to check in and board? If ZB950 leaves BHX for PMI, what's the point in UA being down there? Will the ZB ac be allowed to operate the return? Would the ac be left in PMI and crew come back on UA? Crazy!

There was a campaign against them before, with a betting shop laying odds on them going bust a few years back. I think that was sabotage and subterfuge by a competitor. It could be that again, with no actual substance behind it. It could also be a financial and negotiations tactic if Jet2 really are positioning for a buyout. I hope it is, in respect that I'd hate to see people losing their jobs, but if it is, it is despicable behaviour by the rumour starter.

So there are a few here that have maybe putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5 to justify a rumour?

Flights operating normally this morning by all accounts. Rumours of this kind can be VERY damaging. I wish all at Monarch well and hope that the rumour mill stops!
