I flew on TCX from Manchester on an Airbus A330. It was not a good experience due to the narrow seats. Thomas Cook have put in 9 seats across the cabin. The A330 was designed for 8.

Hi Ashby. I flew TCX from Manchester to Barbados to cruise on the Island Star at the beginning of December. I had booked the premier upgrade so the seat configuration was 2 - 3 - 2 and it was very comfortable. There was plenty of leg room (on another site I saw that leg room in standard seats is also better than on most airlines). The food was OK but then you only eat it to pass the time. All the seats had TV screens in the back of the seat in front. These showed a couple of films, there was a music channel or two and a map showing progress. On my arrival in Barbados (after leaving Manchester 3 hours late) I heard that the Gatwick flight for that cruise had to go to Manchester first to pick up passengers there which meant the flight was a bit longer. Also there was a problem when the Gatwick flight landed as some people claim to have been left sitting in minibuses for up to two hours waiting to go through the embarkation process. Not the fault of TCX and hopefully will be sorted out before you fly. Enjoy your cruise.
