    Going out the flight was very good. We were given a free snack box which was nice. Food was good, plenty to eat and drink. Wanted to buy camera lenses for my phone but they had sold out. Coming back was not so good. I didn't mind the delay as there was a thunderstorm, so couldn't be helped, but ...

    The Dreamliner was excellent: both quiet & less jet-lagged than usual on return to Britain from the US. (Oxygen flow is apparently better.) Seats are no more comfortable though than earlier planes. So wish airlines would invest in more comfortable seating! Food and entertainment were ...

    Good flight, liked the ambience, unfortunately difficult foodwise, as they don't do lactose free meals. Arrived early & as being first off the plane, made an easy exit. Very airy plane, much better than 747, hope they fly to more places soon. Staff all very helpful & legroom good, but still ...

    Lounge was closed in Manchester before the outbound flight, which was disappointing. The flight on the way out was brilliant, food & beverages excellent, extras were great (even given a mini toothbrush & toothpaste), service was great. We felt the movies were rather dated, and felt bored after ...

    We have travelled Thomson B787 before, in both Premium and standard economy (with leg room). This time however, what a step change they have made. So impressed were we that I have actually written to Thomson to praise their crew and the level of service we received. The new seats are fabulous for ...

    We stayed the night before at the Hampton by Hilton, so as to not rush to the airport. We had no problems checking the baggage in at the Thompson desk and went through to the departure lounge very quickly. We went to the departure lounge to wait, we was delayed by about 40 mins. once we ...

    Booked front row in Premium Economy both ways, excellent leg room, very comfy seats! Recline was quite good although the seats were comfortable enough that recline was not really needed to have a quick nap. Entertainment options were very good with plenty of options for kids too. It was nice to ...

    It was my first experience of the Dreamliner from Florida....I hated it... Seats were hard...it was cold and drafty...I told the crew I was in a draft and she turned the heating up... There was a huge gap between the window and seat so cushions slip down...fixed arm with table... I was so ...

    I was looking forward to trying the new 787 Dreamliner. The lighting and darkening windows were good but not essential. However I have never sat/tried to sleep on a more uncomfortable seat. I am 5ft 5 so average height but my feet did not touch the ground unless I sat upright with my ...

    Dreamliner!!! I was quite intrigued (sad I know), about the hype surrounding this plane; despite the adverse publicity recently seen in the media. So it was with a tiny sense of childish curiosity I boarded this aircraft with my husband. Initial appearances were bright and a wide bodied spacious ...
