Yes I'm afraid they are. The service in flight is very good but the leg room is terrible if you are taller than 5ft 7ins. My husband is 6ft 3 and would gladly pay extra if OV were to hire a plane with more leg room.
Ah, well actually, no. We are booked to go on OV2 at end of Jan 2008 and we are flying with First Choice from Manchester. Our agent made a point of saying First Choice planes were newer and had more legroom. On our 2 previous trips on OV, we were on Thomas Cook and the trip to the Med was okay as it was only 2 hours, but, in Jan 2007 we went to Barbados and 7.5 hours on a Thomas Cook flight was too much. Very cramped and could'nt wait to get off. Heres hoping the First Choice flight is going to be much better. Crai.
