Thomas Cook or Tui premium

I am full of questions today!

Which would you prefer for roughly the same price - Thomas Cook premium or Tui premium? Are there any major differences?

Thank you

We've done both of these in the PE cabin and I would 100% go Tui

If you like to shop the luggage allowance may be a factor I think its still only 23kg with TUI ( and when we went with them they were red hot on the way home with charging if you went over) but with Thomas cook its 32kg in premium that's why we don't go with tui, and we find Thomas cook is on a par with all the others these days and we have flown with virgin TUI and Thomas cook

Hi, weve done both, if youre not bothered about the luggage and dont mind flying into Sanford, Id choose Tui as their premium includes airport lounges and priority fast track through security. Id say theyre on par with each other, so price is another factor.

Thank you all. I was itching to book but DDH has persuaded me to wait until all the flights are out at 11 months. The price to upgrade to premium doesn't seem much so may be willing to sacrifice our 1 night planned at Beach Club for the upgrade

Pros and cons to each

Love Dreamliner (tui) but would rather fly into MCO (Thomas cook).

Always fly in premium cabin and cant beat Tui for service imho. Now if they flew into MCO it would be a no brainer.

Therefore Id base my decision on flight times and price

We are going with Tui but we have got a hire car for the duration of our stay. I like the idea of the quieter airport myself but we shall see as we have always flown into MCO. It's a first for us being on a charter flight long haul.
