I saw last year that Monarch operated charter routes to Canada. Has anyone flown with them to Canada? What was the service like? What aircraft was operated?

My cousin flew to Florida with them last year... what a joke...

Aicraft went mechanical in Gatwick, with no explination until 2 hours after they were supposed to board. They kept getting told, "update in two hours", with no updates coming. They ended up sitting in the airport for over 14 hours before Monarch sent them to a hotel. Then, once they returned the next morning it was another 6 hour delay while they waited for another aircraft to be flown in. That aircraft eventually arrived but was a different type and couldn't make the flight without a stop, so the added a fuel stop part way to Florida.

Work Hard. Fly Right. Continental Airlines

Quoting Jwb2 (Thread starter):

I've never flown them to Canada but I know they fly the A330 to YYC with a narrow 3-3-3 configuration. Not sure if they fly anywhere else in Canada or not. Seat pitch is very tight and service minimal. I would recommend another carrier, although it depends where you are travelling to and your budget etc. Thomas Cook are very good on flights to eastern cities (YYZ, YHZ, YOW, YUL) as they fly the 757 with an over generous 35" seat pitch (see www.canadian-affair.com ). However Thomas Cook are no better than MON with their A330 flights to western Canada. If you are heading out west I'd recommend one of the scheduled carriers such as AC, BA, LH, AF, CO etc.

Flew them to YYC from LGW a few years ago. Think it was an A300 but can't really remember. What I do remember is terrible seat pitch, lousy service and no in flight entertainment, besides my book.

Based on that experience I wouldn't recommend them. Not sure about the price, it was part of a package deal. But I would have paid more.  Smile
