Hi, Thomson and Thomas Cook are coming in at roughly the same price (around £4200) for us (6 adults and 1 child) for end of June next year flying premium economy. We flew thomas cook premium economy last year (post merger) and were very happy with them. But we have no experience of Thomson flights at all. So my question is has anyone flown pe with both and if so which would you prefer or recommend if they were the same price? Is there any difference in the seat pitch as I will have 3 tall sons with me!
we have only flown with TC, next year we are flying with Thomson as TC don't do 3 weeks in PG
for me I would have went with TC, Reports seem to be that Thomson if it is the same as FC are better but the baggage allowance for next year with Thomson is rubbish for upgrading. its 23kg whereby we got 30 kg with TC
The seat pitch on Thomson and FC is excellent. I am over 6ft tall and had a good few inches between my knees and the seat in front. Also found I could stretch my legs out straight under the seat in front because of the seat design.
Look out for the baggage allowance because they can be strict on check in but 20 kilo or thereabouts is plenty for most on a one or two week holiday.
I certainly would not worry about bringing shopping home at current exchange rates!
Last went October 2011 - now saving hard to go again
Hi we have flown with Thompsonfly Premium in April this year and had a fantastic time, the seat pitch, legroom was unbelievable and service and food too, have flown FC but only economy but that was fab too leg room great.. Sorry never flown Thomas Cook
