More likely that they can't crew what they have.

I would respectfully suggest more like crewing problems, enough aircraft to operate the flight programme although I noticed one aircraft went tech at Luton yesterday.

Nothing to do with lack of crews!

Missed flight policy

I have a flight booked with one airline and an onward flight with Monarch. I'm aware that self-connecting means the risk falls on my shoulders if anything goes wrong with the connection.

In the event that things do go wrong, do Monarch have a policy whereby if you miss a flight by less than (e.g.) 2 hours, Monarch will put you onto the next flight for a nominal fee ? Alternatively, is it a case of "tough, you were late, if you want to fly then buy a new ticket" ? Or do handling agent staff use their own discretion ? I've tried phoning, but am just getting people reading a generic script.

It's completely at your own risk. Monarch aren't going to put on another flight without paying the current ticket price. It's not their fault if you miss their flight.

janeyTA - I know it would be my fault - am not disputing that.

Easyjet and Ryanair seem to have a policy whereby if you turn up at the check-in desk no more than an hour or so after departure, you can be transferred to the next flight on payment of a nominal fee instead of having to buy a new full-fare ticket.

The question is whether Monarch have a policy similiar to Easyet/Ryanair.

If you've booked a business plus fare with Ryanair you can change it up to an hour after the flight departed for no change fee, but any price change is payable. You can't do that if you've booked a standard fare.

With Easyjet, if you buy Missed Flight Cover and arrive up to 4 hours after the flight departs they'll put you on the next flight with seats, but not if you don't take out that option.

Monarch don't have anything similar. Their website makes that clear.

"It is passengers’ responsibility to arrive at the airport with plenty of time to allow the necessary check in and security procedures.
Failure to check in on time may result in you missing your flight, in which case Monarch cannot accept responsibility for making alternative travel arrangements. Your time will become invalid and no date/name changes will be allowed.

If you have missed the flight and are still at the airport, please visit the Monarch’s ticket desk, who will check the next flight available and its cost.

Alternatively, you can visit Monarch.co.uk and purchase a new flight.

If you booked your flight via a travel agent or tour operator, please contact them directly."

I think you will find that is one of the reasons why travel insurance is a good idea. Point to Point is quite straightforward and easy to understand isn't it?

Ryanair charge a "missed departure fee" of £110 if flight change is done within 1 hour of departure. In some cases it is actually cheaper than £110 to book a new flight!
