Nope, its 3-3-3. Its cramped, they are reasonably noisy. The only IFE is the screens that come down from the roof. Not particularly clean or well kept. Your average ageing charter airline aircraft i'm afraid

go for rows 9 or 31 (any seat) or 36AB 36HJ if you can, Monarch now offer pre bookable seats for any pax subject to a small charge so could be well worth it, find their customer services number on the Monarch website.
EGGD is right 3-3-3 which is awkward for couples or families of 4

I've also flown Monarch's A300, MAN-TFS. I managed 4hrs on it, its no different to other aircraft charters used as far as seat pitch goes - just hope you don't get put in the middle row. The seating is 3-3-3, apart from the last eight rows and the very first row which are 2-3-2. Monarchs A300 seat 361 - the same as their DC-10 carried. In my experience with them, they seem like the best charter airline in the UK, always a happy crew, good service for a charter and a nice mix of aircraft to fly on.
And yes, all the info about MON's A300 is on their website...
