Warning Thomas Cook flights MAN, POP, MAN, TCX126 & TCX127

Just to give you the heads up if you are booked on these flights that your Outbound flight Nov 16th will have the normal 33" seat pitch with seatback TV's but your Inbound flight Nov 30th will only have 29" seat pitch, with no seatback in-flight TV but free bar service is offered on this flight.

Angelina, would i be right in assuming on the return journey you can upgrade to the old prem seats at a cost.... if so.... i will make my own way to airport as surely its first come basis..

i was also told by my agent that seat allocation is only done 2 hours before flight...On the outward leg....so will arrive early for that too. ;-)

mancuniancfc,

If you are on the TCX127 on Wed Nov 30th there is NO Ex premium seats as this flight is 29" seat pitch throughout the aircraft.........only extra legroom seats available to pre book if there any left at this stage.........if passengers have already been told about this flight I would think that there would be a rush to pre book the seats to get the extra seat pitch.

Ex premium seats will only be available on the Outbound flight and these seats are given to passengers on a lottery basis not on a first come first served basis.Arriving early at check-in will not help I am afaraid.

Concerning your agent saying that seats are only allocated 2 hours before flying is incorrect as the seats are allocated the day before once the final manifest has been finalised and seats are allocated on a best fit scenario.

mancuniancfc,

If you put in your reference # and date of travel in this link below, then click on Book Seats you will see the seating plan of both your flights and what seats are available to pre book on your flight both Outbound and Inbound.

Hi Angie

I too was under the impression that seats were allocated the day before by Thomas Cook but I emailed the preflight service dept about this about a month ago, and they said for those that haven't prebooked, seats are allocated at check in! I do wish they would all sing from the same hymn sheet!!

LeylandSunaddict,

Your right I wish they would get their act together..........different depts. give out different information and different advisors give out different information, who are we to believe sometimes .........when I was checking for my son and his girlfriends holiday to Cuba the answer I got was the seats are allocated the day before once the final manifest has been finalised and that was from an advisor at TC Airlines...........it beggers to believe, it really does !!!!
