That's the way I view it. For me, while the flight is part of the holiday, it's the bit between the flights that's the most important part. I don't spend 10 hours or more each way on an aircraft for a holiday (well, just a bit of me does!).
Sorry but I disagree stongly. For some, myself included, it matters greatly what plane I'll be flying on. I've been all over the world & been on most aircraft in my time & I have to say the flying experience plays a big part for me.
Had the now almost antiquated 767's actually had a proper cabin re-fit with the new interiors, seats etc then yes that would go along way to pleasing the passengers.
I know it's not all Thomsons fault, but it's a disaster. I'm fed up hearing "a change of aircraft does not constitute a major change" Well I'm sorry it DOES. Yes they can substitute planes at short notice etc, but when they have been hard selling this product like nothing on earth it's a kick in the teeth, especially all the hype over the last year.
Remember many people booked their holidays, chose different airports / cities etc because their flights were advertised as "Dreamliner". I really think Thomson should have waited anyway untill the planes were actually delivered before promising anything.
I have a holiday booked myself end of November, apparently Dreamliner flights but I 'm not going to hold my breath.
Could agre more with you! Thomson wouldn't offer the option to transfer to a different date if they Wernt accepting the fact some people choose specific dates for just dreamliners and would rather fly out on other days.
Online seat reservation seems to show 2-3-2 config, so assume it will be. In Row 18, which looks like it is just in front of the emergency exit seating.
Is it also correct these planes have the new dark blue seat coverings?
Could you tell me the where " tom518 Glasgow-Cancun 6th May" flies in from ie: flight no.
So I can check for any delays.
Thanks for your help
Merged with existing topic. Dazbo HT Mod
MAN-SFB-MAN (TOM104/5) are scheduled to be operated by an ex-FCA 763 as far as I'm aware. The interiors were refurbished last year and now have the Thomson dark blue leather seat coverings, everything else is the same. Row 18 is 2 rows in front of the emergency exit (row 20).
Standard economy seat (row 31)
Emergency exit row (row 20)
Photos of the original seat covers here.
The aircraft doesn't operate a flight immediately before and will position up to Glasgow early morning to operate your flight.
Anyway now to my question, Darren can you tell me if the TOM 2468 on 23/5 is likely to be a 767 (or a dream liner if they are delivered !!!!) sorry!.
Feel a mug asking this but never done long flight before ?
Re passport details or API, more and more Governments require this and so some airlines just request it as standard now. I don't know whether this is a requirement for Mexico or not but it is easy to do. - just click on the relevant link in the email they sent you and you'll be taken straight through to the on-line form for entering your details. Again better to do this in advance - if it is required in advance by the Mexican Government and you haven't provided the info then Thomson might not allow you to board.
Hope you are well and enjoyed your holiday
I noticed today on Thomson's twitter they were advertising the extra space rows on the 757. We are travelling on TOM 512 & 437 which are due to be on a 767 (unless things have changed?). We have booked the extra space seats and are wondering if there are any non-emergency extra legroom seats on here? Its just that one of our party has had to use seatbelt extenders on flights sometimes but not always. Just to be on the safe side we wanted to book non emergency exit seats when it comes to selecting our seat. Do you know which rows these are? We were thinking of row 1?
Thanks for your help as always

The closest you'll get to a Dreamliner is an aircraft in the Dreamliner livery I'm afraid! MAN-ACE-MAN (TOM2468/9) should be operated by Boeing 767/300/ER (short haul) subject to any changes brought about bythe 787 situation.
If you follow the link for the seating plan on our What Aircraft? guide, you'll see the location of the extra legroom seats. Most are behind bulkheads rather than on the exit row, particularly those on the outer columns of seats. Row 1 is as good as any of the others.

Never feel that when asking for help or information on here. It's exactly the reason these forums are here, to share information, ask and answer questions. The more you ask, the more informative the forums are!

It would be a shame if they can't and you aren't able to get away later in the year. Or if there are further delays with the Dreamliner and that your holiday recedes even further into the future - but as you say that has nothing to do with me. Just as whether I am a manager or a 'manager, has nothing to do with you. I work in a field that clearly has to juggle more factors and work within greater constraints than you do. Just be glad that you don't have to and can change your mind about your holiday plans and presumably cater for your staff doing the same. Enjoy it when you do eventually get to Florida
Just so your aware I would only be changing the flight by one day you make it sound like im planning on changing my holiday by months. All I was simply saying is if the Sunday flight is a 767 I would rather go on the Monday flight to make things easier not really a drastic change to be fair it just makes things easier for me in regards to transfers to airports and deadlines on Sundays.
Im not going to Florida its Mexico but thank you.
