You have to take review sites with a pinch of salt. I moderate the flights sections of a holiday website and you only tend to get people posting reviews if they loved the flight or hotel, or hated it. Reviews are useful to get a feel, but considering FR is the larger airline of the ones you mention, they are bound to get more posts.I'm not saying disregard the posts, just bear in mind the motivation behind them as your judgement may be skewed. I'd be happy to fly with any of the ones you mention, it's more of a question of price and schedule.

Well No. 1 for me is EasyJet
Had dozens of flights on dozens of routes with them and rarely am i disappointed.
Monarch i use twice a year and I like their service but just cant get a 'cheap/low cost' flight no matter how hard i try.
As it happens i take my first flight on BMi Baby this month from EMA to AGP.
I am looking forward to it even though they use ageing 733's.
Ryanair ive used lots too and pretty much a different argument here, the service has always seemed below usual standards, overall the flights i get on the website are not necessarily expensive but always far dearer than the price that is shown first when they've stuck their add-ons to the bill. I,m expecting before long that they will want to charge you for each breath you take. Therefore they will not get a rating from me.
There isnt really a dark side to the moon, as a matter of fact its all dark!

Monarch i find is by far the best! They combine great service with low prices. (Most of the flights ive been on have overhead IFE screens even if the flight is only 2 hours long) and they always have the option to buy a hot meal which, although is not the best food in the world - its nice to have the option!
plus - some of their flights are 'CelebAir' flights. You get celebrities as your crew for the ITV2 TV programme!
