Monarch flights are ok,

We have flown lots of times, with them,

Flew February it was a direct flight,

Have flown BA, that's fine if you want to spend time, in Mumbi or Dehli.

they are fine if you get the extra leg room at the back they go in to two seats at the back

Monarch planes have less leg room than Thomsons or Thomas Cook planes, so if that is important to you, try to book the extra leg room seats, or the Premium upgrade if you want to pay the extra. You will get more leg and elbow room, better food and entertainment, and free booze. Worth going for, in my opinion, but it depends on the price.

I think it depends how big or small you are and the time you are traveling, I personally don't mine any of them and just go for the cheapest rather send the money when i'm there on me hols....lol

We found Monarch premium better than Thomson premium. Thomson was just not worth the extra, Monarch gave much better service, food and seats. On last year's Thomson flight the seat was so uncomfortable I had to sit on blankets, we were at the back of the cabin and these seats didn't even have a widow - I wished I'd saved my money - could have bought another ring or two!!

I don't think Monarch are that bad though you do get 2 inches less leg room than Thomson or Thomas Cook. I wouldn't pay the extra to upgrade - I'd rather spend the money in Goa.

I agree with Crazybear - we don't mind Monarch but neither of us is tall or big so narrow seats and less legroom that other charter flights don't bother us.

I think flights this year have all been non-stop (possibly with the odd exception if Monarch had to change the plane at short notice).

IFE is by way of overhead sceens (so no choice of films etc) but if you have your own entertainment or sleep all the way, that wouldn't be an issue.

Usually cost of Premium is around £250 pp and, like Gemma, I wouldn't pay that.
