booked the premium seats and was not disappointed. extra legroom, good food, good entertainment. For such a long flight it was really worth the (not much extra) money. I would recommend paying the extra for the comfort. Staff were really friendly

Our Return flight was cancelled and postponed until the following day due to crew sickness. We departed 19 hours and 23 minutes late, and the captain stepped back from the flight deck and apologized to us and explained, in clear view, in the centre of the aircraft. Meal consisted of Pasta in a mushroom sauce with a Tomato Chicken breast....

Flew with this airline on the 30th June, surprised how basic it was compared to other flights we had been on, option to tip your seat back but to find the person behind you moaning about it which made you reluctant to do this, quite a tight squeeze in the alley way especially if the drinks cart was out, if...

Flights are okay, however don't like how you have to pay £9 each (both ways) extra to choose seats numbers. With their being two of us we didn't bother, but for larger families this could get expensive. You also have to pay a premium for extra legroom, which in future we will be forced to pay. My partner is 6'3....

We travelled on the 3rd July to Tenerife and returned to EMA on the 17th July. As always no complaints about Thomson, which is why we always fly with them. Check-in and boarding was very efficient, flights were on time, cabin crew were very friendly and helpful. There's no in-flight entertainment, other than a live map. The food and drink...

We flew to Cyrpus for a short break for our anniversary. The seats were very firm, not very wide and my knees were touching the back of the seat in front. Imagine what happened when the guy in front decided he wanted to recline his seat. It's was extremely uncomfortable for about 4 hours of the flight. The food was...
