I flew with them to Lima (Peru) on a Fred. Olsen cruise earlier this year and found them very comfortable with good service on board.

We had a Thomson flight back from the Caribbean earlier this month and it was excellent....we had plenty of leg room ...in fact much more than we had with BA when we returned from Dubai!! We have flown Monarch, thomas Cook, BA, Ryanair, and Thomson over the past few years and Thomson have been the best for service and comfort/space!

Thomsons seem to provide increased leg room on longer distance flights. You should be glad you're not going with Thomas Cook.

We flew with Thomsonfly from Gatwick to San Juan (Princess Cruises) and we thought they were excellent. The food was much better than the US based airlines we have travelled on transatlantic and there was also a free bar!! The crew gave excellent service and we even got a pack containing moisturiser, toothpaste/toothbrush, socks and eye mask on the return overnight flight. The only problem we found was that we could not reserve seats prior to departure so it is important to check in early. It was far from a cattle truck!! Hope this helps.

We flew with them from the UK to Barbados and back again in February 2008 and we cannot praise them highly enough, the best flight we have ever had, after years of travelling all over the world with many many airlines. The leg space was fantastic, the food great, the service pleasant, the freebies -newspaper, blanket, etc excellent. We would love to fly with them again any time.

I travelled on a Thomson flight from Edinburgh to Barbados in March last year to join the Braemar. Excellent flight and the beauty of it all was that buses met the plane on the termac and whisked us off directly to the ship. We were on the Braemar for 28 days, doing the Caribbean and then transatlantic to Dover, therefore no flight home. I have cruised many times (also flown) and Fred Olsen are number 1 in my book!!

Just flown with Thompson to/from Miami. Seats narrow but should be OK for a size 12 and leg room would suit a 6' 6" person....never had so much leg room even on long haul national carriers. Food good and service fine....you should have no probs.
