Interesting PPRuNe handle you have!

Lots of opinions expressed by you and others but not necessarily factual! Only a few people in the know have the facts and you as an outsider to the company will not be one of them!

On social and news media facts are often hard to identify, lots of sound bites and snippets of data simplified and rehashed for quick digestion which often leads to over simplification or worse total misreading of events. As always the devil lives in the detail, which you and the vast majority of others do not have!

For some reason when the opportunity arises, Monarch gets a kicking which on the face of it seems unjustified!

Does the 737-MAX require additional training or will it be covered by an existing B737 type rating?

I wonder how that will affect the people who recently applied for the B737 jobs at Monarch. Perhaps by the end of the interview process they'll be flying for Norwegian instead.

Does Norwegian have the cash to purchase Monarch?
Or will they be adding to the debt sheet again....
