Course they can reconfigure. But they won’t be used on the JFK in the medium term as they are the wrong configuration, but more importantly, Terminal 7 is nowhere near equipped to handle the A380.

Someone might buy Monarch's engineering and maintenance but that's about it. Monarch leased everything.

There was lots of problems leading up to their collapse.
1 reason is that they had a decent percentage of their business in countries like Egypt and countries like Tunisia but those markets collapsed and monarch had to restructure their routes.
Other people will explain better into other problems.
Jet2 Summer 2018: 482 weekly flights to 42 destinations. 19 aircraft based (18 in full use, one on standby), an increase of 2 aircraft.

If this deal fails, Boeing can go back to the planned 2015-2016 massive layoffs in the US. Boeing last year finalized a $16.6 billion deal to sell 80 aircraft to Iran Air, Iran’s flagship airline which is owned by the Islamic republic. While it was said the deal had been "finalised", Boei...Jump to post
Flybe is cutting a few routes from London Southend, and one of them is Cologne/Bonn. Why can't Flybe make Cologne/Bonn work from Birmingham or even London Southend?

At yesterdays Joon launch event, AFKL CEO Jean-Marc Janaillac spoke about the A380. There seems to be some questions about future size of the A380 fleet, with 5 of 10 frames on leases terminating in 2020, and not yet decided if they will opt to keep aircraft or not. CEO also confirmed company has n...Jump to post

Where did their 330s go? That interior has to be the worst of any airplane ever. My last flight with them saw 50 people on an A330 flight.

So it's odd DY hasn't done MAN-USA flights. That's exactly what Monarch would do with the MAX. This seems like a choreographed dance. It may all be Monarch manipulating DY, but I don't doubt it's true. Otoh, Monarch hasn't even gotten the MAX yet. Pretty early days. Not really at the time at launch...Jump to post
Why would DY want to invest in something ailing? Lots of reasons maintenance (Monarchs BHX base seems to get Norwegian B787s) Large bases at Manchester&Birmimgham One of the most important are they got quite a few aircraft based at Gatwick and 45 B737 MAXs coming starting 2018 Plus other bases ...Jump to post
Just a question here can my Airport (NCL) with a runway length of 7,641ft handle a B737MAX with a full load to PVD or SWF?

DY do make me very suspicious. A seemingly small airline with a fleet of 20 737-300s went to this in less than a decade, it was always going to raise questions, where exactly has the cash come from?

China sure has and is getting plenty of A330s! I assume all or most of the recent deliveries are the "regional" models late off the line to bridge the gap to A330 neo production.

Less than that. By 2020 there'll be major consolidation in Europe. IAG has their eyes on Finnair. AZ will end up split with Ryanair and LH's eurowings or AFKL.
