Re: Bankrupt Monarch Airlines Still Hasn’t Paid Passenger Compensation Despite Creditors Making €68 Million

I went searching on Google and didn't find anything about this.. Do you have more information on this?

Re: What’s next for ORF, RIC, PHF

Yes ORF-SAN is a large navy route. I could see SWA on a 738 Or ua on a 752 maybe 2x a week frequency. I wouldn't put money on UA, that's for sure. They don't do point-to-point. WN is a decent bet though, but I'm sure it would be on a -700 and less than daily. WN may eventually add some more service...
