Standard cheap budget flight however the leg room with Monarch Airlines seem to be the worse airline out there. Have flew many times before and this was the worse. Very disappointed that on a 2 hour 50 min flight, you have to pay for a drink!!!

We have flown with Monarch several times & have always been very pleased with the whole process of the flight. The seats are comfortable with plenty of legroom. The cabin crew are always smart,friendly & polite & make you feel special. I especially like that if you book online, for a small extra charge you can actually choose your own...

She's 11 months old and clearly very figurative.... After the long flight before we disembarked we...

We have always had a good experience with Monarch, but unfortunately due to missing our flights on the way back from France, shocking customer service ensued and we were palmed off with the "3rd party" travel company HolidayTaxis.com as being liable. As predicted they have also denied liability and I am in the situation of being unable to proceed legally...

Mixed review coming, good customer service regarding the assistance provided to my wife to get on and off the plane. Now the bad bit, we booked and paid for meals on both the outward and return flights. On the return as they started the drinks and food service they asked if we wanted a meal we said we had already...

Flew with this airline as part of a package ski holiday and will never fly with them again. I am only 5ft2 but even I felt the leg room was horrendous and the chairs were very uncomfortable. The food prices were a joke so I didn't purchase anything but the staff seemed friendly.
