Thomson Airways offers a separate cabin on long-haul flights under the Premium brand. It is continuing with the Premium product despite the 50% increase in Air Passenger Duty levied by the UK government which, as the cabin is in the same tax category as a scheduled airline's first class offering, means an additional £170 on the price of the upgrade on the outbound journey to the Caribbean.

Thomson's Premium cabin on the Boeing 767 is actually similar to a scheduled airline premium economy section although the seat pitch, described as "at least" 36 inches, but usually 37 inches, is slightly less than, for example, Virgin Atlantic's 38 inches. The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner offers the full 38 inches, however.

Upgrades to Premium start from £169 return. Seats in the cabin are leather armchair-style with foot support and nine-inch seatback TV with touchscreen control. The in-flight entertainment includes 12 films, 30 TV programmes, 10 radio channels plus CDs and games.

Other benefits are an amenities pack, dedicated check-in and priority boarding. Meal service is four courses with wine and snacks. All drinks except Champagne are included.

Me and wife travelled to Mexico for our honeymoon. We had travelled with Thomson before and on the whole were satisfied with their service. When we booked our holiday we were informed we would be on the Dreamliner. My wife couldn’t contain her excitement and insisted on Premium Economy. So a year later, October 2013 had arrived.

The a/c was a very nice experience, service,timing excellent. One negative is the seat leg support is in my view unsafe because of the angle it cuts off the blood supply to the lower legs , it needs to higher or have a foot rest as the weight is all on the back of the leg, my legs /feet were swollen to an extend I have not experience before, I am a very experience... more
