We were in Hurghada a few weeks ago with Thomas Cook flying from Manchester. The plane going out had entertainment but the plane coming back did not. It is maybe just luck of the draw. I hope this helps

All but 2 of the 757's now have in flight entertainment. However, you are not going to know if you are on one that does or doesn't until you are on board!

Hi johnvict

As has been said above all but two of the 757's in the TC fleet now have IFE re installed the 767's and A300's have always had it, If you tell us which departure airport you are using in the UK and what date and long you are going for we may be able to give you a bit more info.

We flew for two weeks from Manchester on 19th June. We had IFE both ways although it was overhead screens. They also charge for headsets.

We preferred to read our Kindle or, shock horror, talk to each other on the way out. On the homeward leg, we did not get back into Manchester until 02.30 so were content to sleep once the meal had been served. Incidentally, we got food as part of our package and it was far superior to that which was served by Thomson on our last trip with them.

We leave Gatwick on the 18th September. We had seatback entertainment on a long haul flight earlier this year, but had read that TC were stopping it on short haul flight. Egypt falls in between long and short haul, so we were not sure. We have a 2 hour coach trip once we get to Hurghada so anything to make the journey less stresfull would help.

Currently down to fly on one of the B752 aircraft with IFE installed but programme can change. Take a book just in case!
