If the CAA (as they reported to the media) knew about the plight of Monarch Airlines and were making contingency plans as far ahead as 4 and a half weeks, in order to repatriate stranded Monarch customers. Why then did the Monarch bank continue to take in monies from the consumers right up to the 30th Sept?

It would be expected that they as the bank dealing with the affairs of the in trouble airline would have known about the problems at Monarch even earlier that when the CAA began putting plans together. Will this be a case of yet again a bank putting itself before consumers or will they honour the chargeback claims of those who paid using Debit Cards?
