Great place great hotel and great choice of food. Fully inclusive is a must. Down side is Thomson can be a bit Ryan Air like. They want to charge for as little as one kg when returning yet they turn a blind eye on the outward trip. Which says something about them. Also this charge of around £45 for leaving... More

A quick holiday to visit friends on holiday. The parking was spot on in the mid term car park, so easy and would definitely use this again. The cabin crew were spot on and the aircraft was clean; there are the usual issues of not enough shoulder room but it is a cheap flight so you get what you pay...

Was a bit upset with only having 5kg of hand luggage - of all the airlines I have flown with I have always put my hair straighteners in the hand luggage - Thomson said I was not allowed? Pleasant flight, leg room ok for economy - staff friendly - flight on time both ways.

My wife and i have recently recently returned from a holiday in Majorca. We have always booked our holidays or flights through Thomson Airways. We have ha many problems in the past, far to many to mention. But our holiday was spoiled this year by Thomson's booking system. When we booked the holiday we were told that it could be...

I have to admit the experience of booking in the luggage at the airport was made easy and stressless, no queueing and straight upstairs for something to eat and drink. The one thing that I was a little disturbed about was looking at the departure screen to be told that passengers would be boarding shortly. Within two minutes it was...

Recently flew to Cuba on the Dreamliner. The flight was on time and very smooth both ways and the seat pitch excellent. We were looked after very well by the crew and being in premium economy found the facilities were good. We had a TV and proper head phones which were collected in before we landed. In economy you have...

Flight was on time, no long queues at check in at either airport as they have so many desks which is great. The staff are always friendly which is a lovely start to a holiday. The choice of on-board food and drinks were good. My only quibble is the airplane wasn't the cleanest ever and the seats are a bit...

It's a first, I didn't book our seats as I begrudge paying for allocated seats, on checking in online we had 5 of the party sitting close to each other and 3 of us dotted around the plane. Arrived at Luton and the check in staff said 'we have put you sort of together in 2 groups of 4' Now...
