The Thomson Airways Dreamliner carries 291 passengers, with 47 in Premium Club class in a 2-3-2 configuration (A,C - D,E,F - G,J) with a 38” seat pitch - the same as most scheduled airlines' premium economy cabin. Premium seats are 19 inches wide and seatbelts 1,170 mm or around 46 inches long.
Unless unavoidable, we would choose not to sit in any seat labelled E. Others to possibly avoid are seats 7 E and F, which look a little close to the toilet and will have little or no view from the windows. To see what we mean, click here.
