Thomson Airways' main long-haul cabin is known as Standard Class.
If legroom is your priority, there are good reasons for choosing Thomson Airways over others, as the seat pitch is 33 inches, two inches more than most scheduled airlines' economy cabins.
Seats are leather and have seven-inch seat-back TVs offering five films, seven TV channels, 10 audio channels and six interactive games plus a dedicated childrens' channel. There is a choice of pre-bookable meals that are included in the ticket price.
If you still want more legroom than the standard, Thomson will sell you an exit seat. This will cost £50-£70 return, depending on the route and time of year. If you want to reserve seats so that you sit together, this will cost from £15 per adult or £7 per child return.
