Why do you think no one bought the A300's and used them as freighters are they to knackered to be converted.

Sad to see these two aircraft going. Both have served Monarch for a long time so they must have done a good job. Wonder why the A320 was not retained for next summer as the standby aircraft.

Hopefully Monarch have found some more aircraft to use for summer 2013 as well as the two A320's and two A321's due next year.

Hopefully a number of additional 320 will be joining the fleet before the height of summer 2013

Nothing will ever be able to replace the 757's.

What chance of a Monarch/Jet2 merger in the not so distant future?

You wonder how long both Monarch and Jet2 can both keep expanding and competing for the same business in a market such as the one we're in at the moment. Michael O'Leary is right when he says that the market in Europe is going through a period of consolidation, so might they be better off as a joint force, offering something above Easy/FR but below Thomas Cook/TUI.

Wouldn't a more profitable merger be between Monarch and Thomson? The two biggest European players in that "niche". With both names/brands remaining (a la Iberia/BA Air France/KLM)

Would never happen though.

There is already a strong player between FR and TOM (leisure wise anyway). It's called Easyjet and is much stronger than Monarch who hold a similar position between the former two.

I would definitely say an enlarging fleet of MON second hand A320's and ageing A300/330 is "below" a TOM Brand new fleet of factory delivered 737-800 or new 787's. But each to their own.

I was referring to the 4 used a/c, which l pointed out were going to be both A320 & A321.

Merger?

Monarch merger with Thomas Cook? Could be on if Monarch's expansion gamble doesn't pay off. (Of course, it could be a take-over)
