Monarch Airlines (London-Luton) may be close to renewing its connection with Boeing. The airline currently operates three Boeing 757-200s which are being replaced with newer Airbus A321s. Monarch has had a long association with Boeing dating back to the 707s and 720Bs and the 737 Classics (-200s and -300s).
According to Reuters, citing industry sources, the British airline is close to ordering 30 aircraft from Boeing. The aircraft were unspecified. Could it be new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft?
In August 2006, Monarch ordered six Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners but this was cancelled in September 2011 as the airline stated it has “reassessed its decision”.
If correct, this would possibly unseat Airbus as the carrier’s main supplier of aircraft.
