Economy passengers will receive complimentary drinks (alcoholic and soft) on all long Haul Dreamliner flights.. Will this apply to First Choice Passengers as well..?

It's not restricted to just when serving meals :) It's the same service you'd get on a scheduled airline such as BA / Virgin.

Hi folks,

Yes complimentary drinks on Thomson Airways flights from Nov 1st.

First Choice is not an airline anymore, they are only a travel agent selling holidays under the TUI brand which includes Thomson.

At present the word is there will be limited complimentary drinks i.e with meals and trolley run during the flight........where as in Premium you have the added advantage where you can use your call button or venture up the galley to request more drinks.

Smart move, our first 'long haul' on a Thomson flight here to Mexico felt very much like a budget flight, even on the dreamliner! TBH it put me off a bit.

Though i don't expect (or want) all alcoholic drinks to be free, a wine, beer or soft drink is a nicer touch. I felt the flight had a bit of 'everything is extra' EasyJet feel about, poor cabin crew just flogging stuff all the time.

I don't mind a few bob on the price either, but passengers scrabbling about in overhead lockers for change & c/c cards got on my nerves.

More or less; certainly free drinks with meals eg still wine, beer, soft drinks and a drinks service before meals. However they may run out in which case............
