Sorry for what would be a very obvious question for a lot of regular travellers but I've never booked independently before.
I've booked cheap flights with Monarch to travel in a couple of weeks but as I'm doing it as cheap as poss I haven't bothered with the £6 each way allocated seats and not sure if I should add these as I'm travelling with kids (12 and 13). I can check in online or at the airport and I believe both options are free but not sure? The question is if I check in online now will they then allocate us our seat numbers? I'm wondering if this is a way around paying the £6 seats together charge or do we just get checked in but not allocated seats at the moment? I'm reticent to just try it and see as once we've checked in online we can't make add on's to the booking & if we're not allocated seats then I still don't know if I should pay the extra. Any advice would be appreciated.
Not bothered at all where we sit on the plane, just that we're allocated seats in a row next to each other but not sure how online check in works and if they do that at this stage? Actually Monarch haven't made it clear if there are charges to do it online or at airport so not sure about that either.
