Tui premium

Has anyone flown tui premium and if so how much would you expect to pay for it for a September flight? Is it worth it? Very different to economy? And what are the lounges like? It will be me and my 3 children age 3, 12 and 13. The reason I'm looking is because due to the way the seats are layed out I would have to sit seperate to my children where as in premium it appears there's rows of 2 seats

We went in September 2019 for 4 adults and paid about £3600. We sat in 2 front and 2 behind. We loved the space and being spoiled and the cabin was so quiet. The lounge at Sanford wasn’t great and we flew out from East Midlands whose lounge was ok but nothing special but it may be different in larger airports. I would definitely fly Tui premium again.

We absolutely love Tui premium, the Dreamliner seats are far more spacious than the other airlines and if people recline it doesn't come back into your space. It's much better than Virgin PE.
I am not a fan of airport lounges really and the one at Sanford is very tight with it's "freebies" but when pricing up remember to include your free breakfast on this side.
I could not begin to guess about the cost of fares this year, I don't think we have ever paid the same price twice in a the years we have been travelling.

Just checked and its an extra £250 each. So nearly a thousand more. Would you pay that? Do they do any sales for premium

We flew TUI Premium from Gatwick in August 2019. We loved it and have just booked it again for 2022, however flying from Bristol this time. The seats were very spacious and it was a really comfortable flight, we had the back row on the right seats of two and were first off the plane which was very handy! We booked as a package but I believe paid around £550 for the upgrade for both of us, that was booking fairly last minute however.

The lounge at Gatwick was fine - quite busy and noisy but the breakfast was good. As an above poster said the lounge at Sandford was not the best, I seem to remember it was limited in terms of snacks etc but that wasn’t really an issue for us.

i prefer TUI premium to Virgin but i always weigh up the cost. Im not sure i would pay £900 for any PE.
I paid £580 for TUI premium from Bristol (last minute deal) and got Virgin for £600 in the sale this year.

The biggest downside of TUI Premium is that you can't see which seats are available until you commit (pay) to it.

We have already paid for extra legroom seats for the 2 of us and to upgrade to premium as another £516 for the 2 of us. Not sure what we gain with that apart from the increased luggage allowance and also being in a row of 2 and not having to sit with a stranger!

TUI premium is great .
Last year we paid £3600 for four adults and 1 child for return flights , I checked in prices every day for over a month until I reached a price i was happy with because as well as flight prices changing so does the premium upgrade price .
Also depending on how many travellers I would phone a store to book as they can do dummy runs of larger group so can give you an idea of seats available as you can’t actually book your seats until you’ve paid and most wouldn’t want to be split up if only odd seats are left , or maybe they would
