Not travelled with Tui for a while but my general impression was that the seats seemed quite small,very close together, no leg room unless you are prepared to pay extra for it, they had adequate supply of food and drink if required. Have travelled with other airlines on package holidays and found there is more leg room,better seats and they...

Tui have reduced there luggage allowance and its now in line with budget airlines so no advantage and likely to cost you for taking standard clothes for a fortnights holiday. Had to pay to sit together £60...

TUI, Should update planes when you have four hour flights, or at least have, FREE WIFI, Flights are boring and a film would go down a treat. no usb power points either which is a must this day and age. Return flight from LAS PALMAS to Gatwick had no hot food at 8pm not good.

They gave good service and included a hot meal. Tui’s on board catering offer includes chips for which you pay. You pay for extra legroom and an...
