I'm hoping you guys can clarify some things for me, as I am getting different answers from the travel agent, from the tour operator and from Monarch themselves.
I'm a vantage card holder and used to using ZB.
However, we're looking to travel to Hurghada from MAN on July 19th, which is a MON flight, MON5328, returning on Aug 2nd on MON5329.
The travel agent claims Monarch still have some A321s which are all charter pitch with no extra leg room at the front, whilst the tour operator doesn't have a clue. Monarch on the other hand, in one breath told me there was extra leg room available and pre-bookable, but then in the same call advised me that it was "all charter configuration."
The reason I'm apprehensive about booking is that my partner is 6' 8". Whilst he is ok with the extra pitch at the front of the A321s, if this isn't offered on this particular round trip or if row 10 either can't be pre-booked or is already booked up, we simply can't make the trip.
Looking at the info on here, there is no differentiation between seating plans (as I suspected), but I can't find any info on whether what is offered on ZB by way of Monarch Plus is also available on a MON flight number and the conflicting info. has only confused me.
Can anyone shed light on this for me please with a definitive answer, and is there anyone on here able to see in MON's reservation system whether row 10 or extra leg room would be available for us to reserve on those dates please?
I must admit, I'm a little annoyed that I have to resort to asking on here for information which, in all honesty, should be clear and available anyway - shame on them all !
