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.
