Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip : 11th October 2009

Economy Class : Airbus A320

The first 7 rows are extra legroom seats, also, rows 11 and 12 have the most extra legroom because they are at the overwing emergency exits, row 12 is the very best because these seats recline fully whereas row 11 seats do not recline at all. I would also avoid row 1 because they are up against the bulk head.



Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip : 20th August 2009

Economy Class : Airbus A320

My husband and I paid for extra legroom seats - row 10. Legroom was great and only two seats in that row but seats are so narrow the whole journey was extremely uncomfortable. I feel better having read other people's comments and now know it's not just because we are not skinny size 10's - who would be the only people who would be comfortable in these seats.



Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip : 3rd July 2008

Economy Class : Airbus A321

If booking extra legroom seats, these are usually the first 6 rows and exit row 10, do not book row 1 because this is up against the bulkhead and you can't stretch your legs out, thus no advantage in paying the extra charge.



Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip : 1st November 2007

Economy Class : Airbus A330

Extra legroom seats on this aircraft are the row by the emergency exit; the seats, therefore, are even narrower than the rest of the cabin. You pay extra to stretch out your legs but you have to be small to actually fit in the seat in the first place! I will never fly Monarch again it is the most uncomfortable flight I have ever had.



Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip : 23rd October 2007

Economy Class : Airbus A320

Actually they do have an extra Legroom cabin, but to save the customers extra tax it is just sold as extra legroom (35") well worth it. They do not sell all the seats so you usually end up with spare room beside you. Also they serve from the galley first so you can get your meal choice.



Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip : 18th October 2007

Economy Class : Boeing 757

Legroom best : 11B/C/D/E / 12A or 12F / 31B/C/D/E - do not accept 31A or 31F.



Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip : 18th October 2007

Economy Class : Airbus A330

Myself, wife and partner were fortunate enough to be seated in Row 1. We paid for extra legroom (15 each one way), on a flight to Rhodes. We also have a 21 month old son, so extra room was vital, as he did not have a seat due to his age. The seat widths were diabolical, I'm a 36" waist and found it a tight squeeze. A chap behind me actually suffered a panic attack, as he had no space whatsoever and another guy was telling us how he developed a blood clot in his leg on the flight to Rhodes which hospitalised him for most of his holiday! Even though we had the extra legroom, I would never fly with this appalling airline ever again.  I cannot believe that so little room on an airline can still be legal. Always therefore ensure you "upgrade" if you have to use this airline.



Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip : 24th March 2007

Economy Class : Airbus A330

Just to confirm that it is worth the extra cash for a legroom seat, but if you are even slightly above average build watch out for the aisle seats. They have the solid armrests. Combined with the already tiny seat width, it can be a bit uncomfortable 9 hrs into a flight



Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

MONARCH SCHEDULED : ECONOMY

Pay for an extra legroom seat. Seat pitch in normal seats is so bad it is impossible to sit comfortably in them. Avoid Emergency Exit window seats; there are no armrests on the side by the window and for some reason the insulation is bad with visible frost and the side of your body next to the window becomes very cold.



Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

ECONOMY / PREMIUM : Airbus 330

Ex Gatwick to the Maldives, check-in desks open 24 hrs before departure. To secure a preferred seat you have to check in all luggage a day ahead. Being first in the queue on the day of travel gives you no chance of a window seat, outbound or on the return. Economy is appalling - the seats are so cramped that even cattle wouldn't be treated so badly. Premium is OK



Monarch Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

VARIOUS : Economy class

If you are 6ft in height do not contemplate flying Monarch Airlines out of London Gatwick. My partner who is 6ft 2" cannot physically place his feet on the floor of the aircraft in Monarch's 29" pitch seats.
