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 £150 on the price of the upgrade on the outbound journey.
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 Boeing 787 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, priority boarding and a sparkling cocktail before take-off. Meal service is four courses with wine and snacks. All drinks except Champagne are included.

This was the best premium class we have travelled on, the service from all the crew staff was excellent and I would fully recommend customers travelling to Barbados from Manchester to upgrade for this trip more
