Returned today from Cayo Coco to Gatwick on TCX Airbus, configuration 3-3-3.
I am 6 foot tall and was apprehensive but found the legroom acceptable, although my partner was cramped as she had the window seat with the entertainment computor utilising two thirds of her legrom as previously stated on this forum (or maybe it was www.airlinequality.com).
The stewards were exlemperary, we could not have asked for more.
The flight left on time and arrived in the UK early.
The food itself was tasy and nourishing.
The problem, however, is the WIDTH of the seats. With three full grown adults it is impossible to sit side by side and either not partially overlap arms or simply be firmly shoulder to shoulder.
This means that you get the dominoe effect. Every time some one moves, it disturbs the other two. It is impossible to sleep and reminded me of a museum we had visited in Cuba showing a very similar arrangement for slaves shipped to the West Indies in Colonial times. (This really makes a nonsense of the initial video on board from the CEO stating that 'Your comfort is of great importance').
It is the most unpleasant experience you could ever imagine when trying to eat a meal and unless a person is able to bend their arms from between the elbow and their wrist it is utterly impossible to competently eat with a knife and fork, (unless, of course, your passengers do not mind your elbows in their faces throughout).
Any one who can manage this amazing feat should apply to the Guinness Book of Records under the category of 'Contortionist,.
So do yourself and everyone else a favour, spend slightly more money and travel with a competitor who genuinely DOES care about customer comfort and force Thomas Cook to enter the World of PASSENGER travel (as opposed to Slaves).
I deliberately did not mention 'cattle' as I believe that their comfort is alread better catered for!
You have been warned!
