Its ridiclous to say it wasnt the CAA whoBrought Monarch down when it was clearUpto Sunday there were onward negotiationsto have the Atol renewed If the Monarch Directors felt the company was insolvent Why go to this trouble and further humiliation of going for a renewal and Have the option to Voluntary put the company into administration weeks ago? 250 000 packages on a 3 m rotational seatProgramne is 10 percent after empty legsIt does not constitute a joining at the hipOf its business by any meansOnce the CAA delayed the approval it wasA death sentence to monarch as forwardBookings and cash flows would be nonExistant and thus would ensure the businessWas insolvent and left Directors no choiceCome Sunday!
Why is there all this spin and no truth?
The Atol system is out of date and it wouldServe the industry better if the merchant providers be the one that regulates as there the ones taking the risk and woukd be moreindependent and business driven as Opposed to the current drivers in the ukcaaWhich is poltical when reviewing Atol which is more to do with Personality than fact orAny business acumen The CAA in any event will only be regulating3 or 4 companies of any significance soonAs all competition is being killed.
Nothing new is starting and merchant services will be even harder to obtaian afterThis failure
Time for change !
i have done some investigating into the premeditated plan for Monarchs failure30 days ago Qatar Airways won a tender for this flying...yes 30 days ago.Monarch fate was sealed well over a month agoTitan Airways have been the facilitator for the repatriation and let us not forget the ATTspent over 25m £ last year on contingency planning involving Titan Airways andUnited Airlines - I am hoping the Credit Card companies can rely on a hefty credit back from Titan and other carriers who made money last year from these obscene charges as nothing ever operated save the ferry flights.If the brokers fee is just 5 percent then we are talking 2.5 m £ in un required costto the credit card companies as the CAA have enough idle bodies to manage this themselves or bring in Roger Allard from the long grass to help.i see a battle royal in Court between the credit card suppliers and the UKCAA whereall will be clear with total financial transparency being a obligation on the part of Titanand the UKCAA The Government did not want any bad press with their conference this week but ipredict the ATT will be paying a lot more than the 5 £ m quoted by the UKCAAand if i were a merchant supplier i would be getting my expert Aviation Team in place nowto dispute any charges for this premediated event on their ticket...
Yes that other party is the Credit card companies will pay....
I HOPE THEY CHALLENGE EVERY LAST CENT FOR THIS AS I FURTHER UNDERSTAND ALL THESE AIRCRAFT HAVE NOT BEEN FIXED DIRECT WITH QATARAIRWAYS BUT VIA A BROKER..WHY COULD THE CAA NOT CONTRACT QATAR AIRWAYS ITSELF?ITS OBVIOUS THEY HAVE A GLUT OF AIRCRAFT IDLE WITH THEIR DISPUTE IN THE REGION
SO WHATS THE BROKER ADDED ON TO THIS COST?
THERE NEEDS TO BE TOTAL FINANCIAL TRANSPARENCY.
