Extra Legroom Seats - Thompson Holidays - Hurghada Flight


We have always booked extra legroom seats when travelling to Hurghada due to the cramped conditions on such a long flight but I am now very confused as they have seemed to change the location of these seats and have now replaced them with Extra Space Seats and the Extra Legroom are now close to the front of the plane. A little concerning as was not advised at time of booking. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between Extra Legroom and Extra Space?

I have paid £190.00 return for 2 adults and have noticed Extra Space are a lot cheaper. HELP!!

I think that extra space are the seats at the front behind the bulkhead where you can't fully extend your legs and the one right next to the emergency exit door where the door locks etc stick out. And then the extra legroom ones are the ones next to the one next to the emergency door and the others in the plane next to the doors such as where there are always 2 on their own on about row 11. These are the true extra legroom seats.

Does this make sense?!

We have just returned from Hurghada with Thomson and we had the extra legroom seats. These seats are numbers 8,10,11. The extra space are near the exits and there are restrictions on who can sit in these seats. I think it is worth paying for extra legroom and for people with some degree of disability there are no restrictions.

Enjoy your holiday

We have booked to go to Hurghada with Thomson from manchester and have booked extra legroom seats. Did you manage to get 2 seats together alright and did you pick your seats dead on the 90 days from return flight., or did you manage to pick them earlier? Are the extra legroom seats all together? I am getting a bit worried about this as there are no extra legroom seats left and I don't want to be too late selecting our seats.

Many thanks
