Question Re: Thomas cook A330 Flight to cuba, Holguin

Hi everyone, We are flying to Holguin with Thomas cook this September. My question is, the aircraft we are flying on is an airbus a330, Will this be a refurbished aircraft or the older.

The reason I ask is I have read a lot that the flight no. Tcx244 is the ex bmi which is refurbished, but i know the reburbs are in a 2 4 2 configuration, and when I selected our seats the plan showed a 3 3 3 configuration which leads me to believe it is the older interior.

Thank you for your help.

A330's can be configured many different ways. The 3-3-3 makes sense on a long haul charter. They can cram more travelers in.

If you are on a the 3-3-3 then no it haas not been re-furbished yet. They are all being changed this winter from 3-3-3 to 2-4-2 with new seats and IFE but sadly not until after you travel.
