In Flight Entertainment LGW-Cape Verde with Thomson

Hi

Does anyone know if you get any in flight entertainment on the Thomson flight from Gatwick to Sal (Cape Verde). I know they offer free meals now but I think they still class as short haul. The thought of a 6 hour flight with nothing for my 5yo to do once his portable DVD player has run out of battery is not a good one! Maybe they have power points? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

What about old fashioned books, games, crayons, drawing books etc. Kids enjoy these things as well!

There is but you have to bring it yourself... be it a book, crossword puzzles, tablet, i-pod, KerPlunk, Buckeroo or some such. You can manage that can't you Ken?

The Thomson safety video is very entertaining, seen it few times now and it still makes me smile- but that's all you'll get in the way of entertainment!
