Thomson Airlines/First Choice pre-booking seats

Going to Maldives in April 2009, booked Premium seats with First Choice (no option, as island choice was the priority). Had letter today confirming that our flights will be with Thomson Airways. Would like to pre-book seats on flights, but cannot find any information on how to go about it on websites. Has anyone got any suggestions as to how to go about it, or does anyone know if this is possible with them?

Many thanks

Glasgow, United...

I've been trying to do this as well, phoned them and they said it not possible to do this until a month or so before the holiday.

Unfortunately FC do not allow you to pre-book seats in the Premium section. It seems that they are allocated as you book so although they sit you with your travelling companions you may be sat one behind the other or across the aisle from them.

Thank you for the replies. I was hoping that, as it is now Thomson airways, there may have been a difference. No such luck!

I flew in Premium seats to Cancun in June. We were seated one behind the other going out, with a 5 month old baby this wasn't a very nice experience.

We complained big style to the rep and managed to get seats next to each other coming home.

I have decided that until FC or Thomson change their policy with regards to booking seats I will not be travelling with them again.
