And how do you know that Monarch isn't withdrawing aircraft and this is to cover those flights, you don't, you are turning rumors into facts and their are NO facts!!! Could be 101 reasons for these UA aircraft! Could be that a tour operator is set to go under and has chosen Monarch to do repatriation and they have hired in larger metal to cover the backlog? Nobody knows, yesterday they were winding down operations and the last flights would go out at midnight, they would then announce a shut down at 7am, now they are operating as normal as per their normal schedule so it's now a new rumor they will shut down at mid day... it's all just speculation and gossip!
If they go bankrupt it will be a sad day for aviation, but right now as it stands most were arguing with people that were sceptical of MON going bankrupt, stating that XYZ is happening, arguing why are you ignoring what's in front of us... now that hasn't happened and MON are still flying, its arguing yet another rumor! Trying to make a stand and a point on yet another so called fact... so what's the next argument when the next rumor doesn't happen?
I really am just playing devils advocate lol! The evidence around certainly suggests that MON are set to close down operations, and all the other smaller things start to add up! And 9 times out of 10 what's staring you in the face is usually the correct answer! But we do not yet know any real answers to the evidence! So time will tell, and the puzzle will fall into place, and it will be interesting to watch! But let's hope for all those people that have family's to support and that have given up their lives and been loyal employees to Monarch that this is just all rumors!
Good grief, XLA2008!!! This is what a.nutters are supposed to do, isn't it? This has been a really fine speculation thread for retired armchair CEOs. Why rain on their parade?
I admit your logic is impeccable, but still.................
It really does seem like a shut down was being planned for, but perhaps some deep-pocket angels have come along to stave off disaster, or pick the bones of a still-warm corpse.
See, now I'm doing it?
