Thomson flight, entertainment and food :-)

Hi,

We leave in 11 days for two weeks in Florida from Edinburgh. We are flying with Thomson at 9.15am. We are not on the Dreamliner. I was wondering if anyone has been on a similar flight with Thomson? Do you get one meal? Does everyone get their own little TV?

We have a three year old to entertain you see.

Any advice, information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much for that. Could you also tell me if there is things other than films to watch such as sitcoms and things for children?

Flew to Orlando on 11th June from east mids.should have been dreamliner flight. Films as previous post. Headphones given out on outbound journey which u keep for return flight. All have seat back screens as u can pause film as u wish. Food outward was chicken noodle stir fry with creme caramel type pudding. Served a glass of wine as shud have been dreamliner flight. Would advise avoiding rows around 11-13 as right near forward cabin toilets. No amenity kit. Given snack pack nearer end of flight cheese ploughmans roll, plastic cup of water and a scone with jam. Return flight was chicken in red white, potatoes, broccoli and carrots. Breakfast snack on landing was a smoothie and cannot remember what else.

That's great to know, thank you. Doesn't sound too bad. Did you have any young children flying with you? Was it a good flight? Much turbulence?

Candlish, every flight over the Atlantic is different. Some will encounter turbulence and some won't. We have had nice smooth flights and really bumpy ones. Hopefully you will be lucky and have no turbulence.

Have a great holiday.

I was on the same flight as ClaireS23, the flight was smooth on both legs, even though we were dodging thunderstorms on the way in. The B767 is comfortable, plenty of legroom in economy, I think there is only 1" difference between economy on the Dreamliner.

Food was typical Airplane fayre, edible but wont be winning any Michelin awards.
