I have just, 4th April, returned from an Olsen cruise on Balmoral and flew Stansted Miami with Monarch. My advice is to get to airport very early and secure some of the extra leg room seats as their normal seats are bad. Return jounrney is a lottery, with a seat allocation policy apparently designed to upset as many as possible. Many couples split - even when the seat next to their partner was empty on take-off!! Hope you get Thomsons, far more generous with leg roo.

I've flown First Choice 3 times in the last year or so to Cuba, Goa and New York and every flight has been superb. New planes with leather seats, above average leg room, seat TVs, reasonable food, free drinks and no queues. If you are with First Choice, I think you'll have a great flight. I don't have an opinion on Monarch though.
