    Pros

    It had excellent training, fantastic support and a real can do attitude throughout. It was an absolute privilege to have worked for Monarch for a number of years. It was always a pleasure going to work with such a lovely team of colleagues and was always a fun day out, never a chore.

    Cons

    49 years of British aviation heritage sadly could not be saved. The company no longer exists. It went into administration in October 2017.

    If only we had been as aggressive as easyjet when they first started out...
