Thomas Cook Airlines
Advantages: Friendly staff, alright food, lots of in flight entertainment and blankets and pillows included.
Disadvantages: Seats a bit uncomfy, sat on my own as did not pre-book seats
I went on holiday to Mexico, Cancun in May this year and we flew with Thomas Cook.
I have to say that i was very happy with the way the flight, staff and atmosphere was flying with this company.
The meals were ok.... not dinner at the ritz but when do you expect gormet food on a flight???!!
The seats were standard in economy but the excellent staff do provide you with pillows and blankets (on long hall flights) which make your travel so much more comfortable. If you are uncomfortable and need another cushion then just ask...if you dont ask you dont get!
On the long hall flights they provide you with an excellent number of recently released films to watch. You can pay extra for 'the better' selection of films but i dont see the point! the films i watched i had not seen before as they were nearly new and actually managed to watch 4 films in total which made my flight seem a lot shorter than its 10 and a half hours!
There is one thing i would suggest if you fly long haul with thomas cook.. pre-book your flight seats before you leave for the airport. It is a good idea if you want to be sat with a member of the family or a friend as 10 and a half hours on your own can make you quite restless! If you dont get to sit near anyone you know then just stick your earphones in and get settled in to watch the movies. Thata what i did and had a pleasant enough experience with Thomas Cook.
I would definately travel with thomas cook again as the flights were not too pricey, didnt have anything to complain about, flights were on time and as a company their reps in the holiday resorts are excellent. So glad i booked with Thomas Cook!
Summary: Will definately fly and choose them as a holiday company next time i go abroad :-)
