Da nahhhhh, found it. And NO, you CANNOT combine 'hand' luggage. Darn it! Have to take 4 bags now to maximise the allowance. OK, well.... that's that then. Am grateful I can at least do it for the 'hold' luggage.
Really surprised Monarch allow one case to weigh 32kg, most airlines changed that a while ago, but as you say it varies from airline to airline. Check it definitely applies to both Monarcch scheduled and charter operated flights, would hate you to have a problem. have a good hol.
For info, and i travel a fair bit, I would never pack everything in one case to check. After losing one of my cases 15 years ago I always split our stuff across 2 or 3 cases so if one goes missing, each of us will at least have one outfit change. Also, i always put one set of swimwear for each of us in my hand baggage so at least we can get to pool/beach ok

■Hold baggage charges may apply with some tour operators - passengers will be advised of any applicable baggage charges when making a booking. ■If you wish to pool your bag allowance within your travelling party you may do so as long as no bag weighs more than 32kg. ■Premium Cabin customers are entitled to 30kg of hold baggage.
MABS, yes I agree about distributing clothes in diff cases. MY suitcase went missing for a week on my honeymoon, and I had NOTHING to wear. Kindly neighbours to our appartment took pity and lent me all sorts from bikinis to shorts, T-shirts and dresses and of course, had to wear some of DH's stuff. So, lesson learnt. I agree about packing a few bits in the hand luggage too. And coming back, I shall pack more heavier stuff to change into ready for blizzardy ole UK! LOL
