Monarch or Thomson

Hi everyone, looking for a litle advice please. Thomson flights + luggage and seat booking is £1252 and Monarch flights are £1121.00 however, have read Monarch are not too good in terms of seating space or in flight entertainment.

Is it worth spending the little bit extra for Thomson? Flying from London.

I'm assuming that is for two people and advanced booking, even so would definately pay the extra for the Thomson flight.

Good decision re Thomson flight. Monarch are the pits. Most supermarket photobooths offer 50 x 50 now.

Good decision, and no faffing. You won't regret it. If you have photoediting software, you could do your own photos.....or use this site: http://www.idphoto4you.com/

Boots photo machine. You can change it to indian visa size. Look on the booths and if it has a indian flag you will be able to change the size £7 for four .
