Just thought I would let you know my thoughts about Monarch Airlines as I know alot of people ask about the company. We flew with them in the last couple of weeks. Our flight out was not impressive as regards the on board entertainment. Unfortunately you do not get TV screens in the seat in front of you, if you sit on either side of the plane, you don't even get a shared screen overhead as these are only located down the central isle of seats. Out of the 3 seats in our row, only one headset could receive sound so I spent the whole journey without onboard entertainment. You also have to watch the one film/programme what is being shown by Monarch as you obviously do not get the choice of changing channels to a programme of your choice unlike other companies ie Virgin. Both flights did go on time and the food was average but I think when you do a long haul flight, entertainment counts for alot.
