Beware when booking a flight with Monarch there's lots of hidden extra costs. The seat price is not cheap and on top of that you have to pay for absolutely everything else. The additional costs are for all of the following prebooked seats if you want to travel with your family alternatively you can check in online the day before...

great staff & a superb flight (in so much the pilot had the perfect balance of keeping us totally updated on what was & is happening during the flight) & a fantastically smooth landing. Classy but the std leg room was ridiculous - I am not a tall person, & my legs were tight up against the seat in front....

Having flown to America recently with BA and been appalled by both the lack of service and quality of in flight refreshments, I was slightly nervous in booking with a so called low cost airline. I can honestly say that monarch knock BA into a cocked hat. Not only were the cabin crew wonderfully attentive, but within the 4.5hour flight...

The on line booking was easy, the reminder e mails were helpful, on line check in simple. The plane was clean, the leg room surprisingly good. Cabin crew were friendly and attentive on both outbound and inbound flights. The Captains were very informative and most importantly the flights were on time.

Flew out of Manchester to Dalaman in Turkey (and return) late July. Good economy airline, flights were timely, service was OK. Leg room is always a problem for me on this type of flight. Would recommend

Monarch are a really good economy airline. The cabin crew were very friendly and helpful. Surprisingly the leg room was better than I expected it to be as I have used economy airlines previously and felt very cramped when seated. I would recommend Monarch Airlines to anyone travelling on a budget.

Managed to get a great deal on the flight price, booked it without any extras, no pre booked allocated seats, no meals, hand luggage only. 24 hours before departure I received notification of our seats the airline assigned us, which were apart from each other. So at the airport I went to the customer service desk and asked if they...
