This be a nock-on effect from last night, Valencia flight was diverted to Luton and a second flight didn't arrive until around 6 hours later than scheduled... Bournemouth has been having some issues with fog, with two Ryanair aircraft holding for over an hour this morning...
Might be able to get some further information on the Monarch flight later!

Istres was used for contaminated runway test by the A380. It's also a back-up runway for the NASA shuttle.
As to where it is geographically, it's just north-west of Marseille city and just accross the lake from MRS airport.
But I don't understand why this flight would be? It couldn't be a previous diversion since commercial aircrafts divert to MRS and not Istres.
