We propose to use a mathematical method based on stochastic comparisons of Markov chains in order to derive performance indice bounds‎. ‎The main goal of this paper is to investigate various monotonicity properties of a single server retrial queue with first-come-first-served (FCFS) orbit and general retrial times using the stochastic ordering techniques‎.
