“I had my first flight with Monarch on 10 October and...”

Written on: 16/10/2010

I had my first flight with Monarch on 10 October and returned to the UK with them on 15 October. After reading reviews on this and other websites I was really worried about these flights as it is difficult to find any positive reviews and there are numerous comments about how small the seats are. We flew Manchester to Malaga (three hours) on an Airbus A321. I am 5'6" and a size 24 and had no problem with the width of the seat. The seat belt fastened - but only just! Because of all the comments I'd read about the seats I had upgraded my seat booking to ones with extra legroom and that definitely helped as I then had plenty of room to get the tray down (it was on the back of the seat in front, not in the armrest). I didn't try one of the standard seats, and so can't comment on how suitable one of those would have been for a person of my size. Both flights departed and arrived on time, the cabin crew were friendly and polite and our luggage was delivered safely. Two very enjoyable flights and I've already booked to fly Monarch again to Spain in January.
