It will also depend on whether the company is listed, and therefore subject to stock exchange rules on price-sensitive information.

AFAIK It was not a confidential letter or anything of that nature it was mentioned on a monthy news letter all staff receive, Therfore hardly "Top Secret " intel !

If info goes into a monthly newsletter for all staff at a company, then management should either expect it to leak to the wider world, or someone in management is deeply naive.

The company I work for has monthly 'ask the CEO' town hall meetings. Because the CEO knows things will leak, he imparts very little information at those meetings; the result is that none of the rank-and-file staff go to those meetings because they know the CEO doesn't want things being leaked so doesn't say anything remotely sensitive

Everything is one step away from public domain these days. Cant believe its taken up at least two pages of nonsensical speculation.

Fact is longhaul aircraft for Monarch are nothing but a dream.
Lets see how long it is before another handout is needed.

Yawn! There's so much negativity and cynicism around Monarch it's tiresome. I often wonder what motivates such people!!??

In this modern day of social media, it doesn't matter whether you are right as long as you are first to state an opinion or throw out an off the cuff viewpoint! Keep repeating it and maybe it will become an "alternative fact"!! Let's be frank, unless you are privy to board meetings and company accounts, no one really knows what's happening.

Contrary to what some think, Greybull appear to still think Monarch has a viable future. What that future exactly entails, only time will tell.

I'm sure our competitors would rather we disappeared, but we are still here and plan to be for a while yet!

We just added a few more flights in Europe, so this summer we will be pretty busy.

BHX

BHX needs 10 Monarch aircraft in the afternoon but only 9 for the morning departures.
So hopefully more morning routes to come ?
Is BHX their biggest bases ?
How many at MAN & LGW ?

I think it's 9 at MAN this year, probably 2x A320 & 7x A321.

Are Monarch dropping their Luton-Ovda route at the end of April ? It's not on sale for winter 2017/2018, the new Eilat airport seems a fair way from being finished, and Monarch have put other winter 2017/2018 routes on sale already. Furthermore, I understand that loads on Luton-Ovda have not been exactly brilliant outside the Xmas period peak

Are you surprised? Ovda is just a strip of tarmac in the middle of the desert a long way from anywhere with very few transport links. It takes over an hour to get to Eilat, which, fantastic as it is from my own experience, is in itself a fairly unknown and insignificant destination from the UK.

I was in Glasgow all day yesterday and seen tonnes of adverts for Monarchs 30 fares on the side of buses which I thought was quite interesting.

LGW 10 A/C

8 x A321, 1 x A320 + 1A320 Smartlynx

LGW has most weekly flights ( maybe BHX now with new routes )
BHX has most destinations served

Possibly a national deal with Stagecoach who I feel sure operate the buses in Glasgow.

I hope not we are using this route again in a couple of weeks. Also it was the middle of march last year before this winter flights were put on sale

Monarch to offer upgrades to 'nice' passengers | The Independent

If there were any doubts they have lost the plot over recent times this should remove those doubts once and for all....
