This is how flying should be, its nice to be treated like a valued customer for a change. The staff were very helpful polite and obliging. Thank you for making our journey to our holiday destination more relaxed even the children were calmer than usual. Will definitely be my preferred choice providing Monarch fly the routes I need.

You would think after paying out over £200 I would be able to sit with my partner without having to pay extra, I think it's an absolute joke I can't check in unless I pay 24hrs before my flight lucky we have WiFi in our hotel.

I booked a flight for 7 people with this airline and then had to change it and fly out 2 days later They charged me over £600 to do this, this is total disgusting and should not be allowed to happen

We found out after we had booked that they operate 2 different websites i.e. 1 for flights only and one for complete holiday packages. We booked a complete package i.e. flight and hotel. After booking we...

He even took our grandchildren on...

Travelled Monarch a few years ago so bit concerned that flight might be overcrowded with under sized seats. Pleasantly pleased by all aspects of flights in both directions and will not hesitate to book again.
