The main goal of this paper is to investigate stochastic analysis of a single server retrial queue with a First-Come-First-Served (FCFS) orbit and non-exponential retrial times using the monotonicity and comparability methods. We establish various results for the comparison and monotonicity of the underlying embedded Markov chain when the parameters vary. Moreover, we prove stochastic inequalities for the stationary distribution and some simple bounds for the mean characteristics of the system. We validate stochastic comparison method by presenting some numerical results illustrating the interest of the approach.
