Hi Oneeyed

same route for us but in October in Premium

If you put your booking reference into the thomson flight website it will bring up a map of the seating layout of the aircraft (we can't yet as departure date still too far off boo hoo!!) The plane is a Boeing 767-300 series but there are several seating layouts depending on which aircraft you are on however the seat map layout will be for your plane - Premium is 2-3-2 layout, only variation will be the number of rows

hope this helps

If you're premium in row 9, you must be on an ex FCA 767. Row 9 does not have a window.

Version 1 (of which they only have one)


but more likely to Version 2

Hi oneeyedjim

We travelled from gatwick to cancun yesterday in premium. Very comfortable flight. Glad we chose to upgrade. The seats had loads of leg room. Choice of films was ok and the ability to pause/rewind is handy. The flight crew were friendly and generous with drinks.

Hope you enjoy your trip.

Hi Jim

We're on that plane too! We're in row 2F & G, so thats definately the 2 near the window on the right side. When we went to Mexico a few years ago the plane follows the coast of Canada and the US - we flew right over New York and could even see the Statue of Liberty - but only on the right side - so fingers crossed we'll do the same this time. Have you booked your return seats? I know when we reserved our seats the inbound weren't available at that time, and we had to call back a couple of weeks later.

Where are you staying - we're in the Riu Cancun.

So 5 weeks, and 3 more days to go! See you on the flight!
