Thomson or Thomas Cook Premium Economy?

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!

Yes they do, you also get a upgade to all the games and extra movies. Not to mention the free booze.

We flew from Esat Mids last June and thought the service was really good. First on the plane & first off, first to get your luggage which meant first at Dollar to spend an hour argueing with salesman.

That was another question, do you get free drinks on board not that we drink anything other than soft drinks.

Does anyone know if they do a twilight check in at east midlands ?
