Hi, I am going on holiday shortly with Thompson Airways. I've never been on a package holiday before so have never used their airline. Just wondering what to expect? I've been on long haul with Emirates, BA, KLM, Qatar, Air France etc and been on easyjet a few times as well and there are some difference such as having to buy food/drinks on easyjet etcand also differences in what is available. Just wondering what to expect with Thompson?
Do you get allocated a seat (even if you don't pay extra in advance to reserve one) or is it an easyjet scrum at the gate?
What happens with food/drinks? We were offered a meal at £15 each but for flight during the night didn't seem worth it. Will they have things available (do we buy them or are they included in the flight price?) if we wanted them?
What is inflight entertainment like? Is there any? Is it any good?
Anything else that maybe unique to Thompson or this type of package type deal that I might be missing?
Thanks in advance - I just don't want to get caught out as you do hear some horror story's from the package holidays about their airlines.
