Hi, we are flying to Bodrum from Birmingham at 7:00am on Thursday 1st October. The flight is TOM 782. I am disabled and require airport assistance, although I can manage the aircraft steps. Please do you have any idea what I can expect from assistance and what the seat will be like, and where it will be? Obviously not in the emergency exits!! This is the first time I have had a holiday with my disability and am quite worried to death!! I can walk about 50 yards, then have to sit. Then 50 yards then sit. Apart from that I am okay. Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks x

Adnyl,

Have you contacted Thomson Airways to request assistance? Details here. The airline will make arrangements to make your transit through the airports and on to the aircraft as easy as possible, for example wheelchair assistance and lift on to the aircraft if needed. If you don't let them know, they can't guarantee things on the day. BHX-BJV-BHX (TOM782/3) are operated by a Boeing 757-200. Medical seats are located on row 2 so I would expect you to be allocated these seats providing you've contacted the airline, and odd seats on rows 3 and 13. Row 2 is located at the front of the aircraft so you have easy access to toilets and are close to exits. You'll find further aircraft information on our What Aircraft? guide including a seating plan.

Darren

jerseylily,

I don't have photos of those specific seats and I've never seen any. There's about 3ft of room between the front of the seat and the bulkhead if that's any use for you.

Our flight departs at 1705.
If you can expand on meal types for me I would be grateful.

Economy Meals

To Cancun
Chicken Pomodoro
Beef in Ale Sauce*

From Cancun
Chicken Curry*
Sausage & Leek Mash

ones with * are the nicer meals.

Hi qatarman,

Re: Extra Legroom Seats on 757

We booked seats numbers 32A, B and C on our flight to/from Egypt in August. They are situated behind the bulk head, therefore you don't have anybody standing in from of you, as you maybe perhaps would if sitting in the exit seats. Couldn't believe the amount of legroom we had in these seats (about 40inch plus). Paid £50 each for the extra legroom plus £10 each for seat numbers. In my opinion, well worth the extra cost and would pay it again!

Darren - thank you. I have pre- arranged assistance and double checked it twice, as I couldn't travel without it. I will let you and others know what happened and what to expect when I come back. I always thought a holiday abroad after my accident would be into never never land; with assistance it becomes a possibility. Fingers crossed!! Thanks again for your help. x

Hi Pat, i'm on a 757 going to Taba Egypt and managed to get these ex legroom seats for the same price as you , i looked at the seat plan and there is row 12 and row 32 , just wanted to know if you had noise/interference from people using the loo as they are situated behind? from what you say they are better positioned than the exit seats in row 12? also how did you book for the seat numbers? like you i think they seem good value at what is £5 per hour per person for a civilised way of travelling.

Row 32 suffers quite bad footfall from toilet users, however row 12 suffers terribly from the draft- so much so you'd gladly jump out the aircraft. 6 of one 1/2 dozen of the other really.

mickeyb94,

Cruise charters are operated by a Boeing 767-300/ER, probably of the former Thomsonfly fleet. You'll find further aircraft information on our What Aircraft? guide.
