Flying with Monarch

Thinking of going to Kenya in August flying out with Monarch. Have read some bad reviews of this airline. Has anyone flown with them and what have you thought? Thank you in advance

Oops, thanks Mfuwe. Lord knows what I originally pulled off. Please see the correct version below. The price is also more realistic. I'll get TA to delete my earlier load of rubbish. How embarrassing for an ex RAF Navigator!!

Why do you think the chappie in the left hand seat always checked for himself? Still got my sliderule and drift plotter!

Start and worry when having tracked the flight from the window seat you "know" that last PA announcement about being over A was out by 100 miles. One guy actually said Crete when he meant Cyprus. Kids eh!

Absolutely right Mfuwe. I once had to travel all the way to California by Herc. 3 days of noisy misery.

I came home in a 747!!!
