Heard a Minhad bound A330 returned on full emergency yesterday. Now I would have expected this of a A300, but not A330.

Maybe the A330 was needed for mainline...

No big drama AFAIK , it returned to brize with a hydraulic problem, no doubt because it would be far easier to postion spares/engineers to brize than dubai, and it was not yesterday it was days ago,and shock horror even the best of machines go tits up now and again

What actually is Monarch's long term strategy?

Looking at it from an outsider's point of view - It doesn't seem to ever show any sort of growth; or whenever it does, it seems to be a year or two behind the competition - for example their new routes to Italy and Turkey. Is there any place in this industry for an airline that doesn't grow?

Currently 30 aircraft offering a smattering of short and long haul leisure routes as well as ad-hoc seasonal charters such as the MoD and Hajj flights.

They recently cancelled their B787 order in order to concentrate on their short haul routes - why? The market for Monarch in Europe is pretty much saturated and easyJet and Ryanair already dominate.

The airline (not engineering) has struggled for profitability for many years - is this airline just an ego trip for the Mantegazza family? Will they continue to pump money in? Obviously Monarch has something going for it, with it being around for 40+ years.

It is 32 aircraft this summer and I understand the plan is 36 for Summer 13 and to be at 40 the year after that. That seems like expansion to me though obviously not on RYR and EZY scales

Although they have now got 2 more A320's, TOM actually retired three and the third one doesnt look like its going anywhere (OOPT) so maybe they will get that one too.

Dont forget if they need 36 aircraft for next summer then they will have to get 6 more between now and then as an A300 and an A320 are leaving at the end of the summer.

The only extra a/c for this summer are the two ex TOM A320, G-OZBW & G-OZBX, with G-OZBX due to operate its first flight this Sunday.
