To be honest I was dreading this flight being Thomas Cook Airlines, an old aircraft and no reclining seats. However, I must say that since Harriet Green has taken over as Group CEO the improvements to Thomas Cook as a whole are impressive. Previous TC flights taken can only be described as extremely miserable with the attitude of cabin staff leaving much to be desired. This flight, what a difference. The staff did appear to be a little older, oh dear should I have said that? but were extremely friendly, helpful and professional. Each flight left a few minutes late, nothing to worry about, and landed either on time or early. The food was some of the best I have had on a flight. Seat 1G going out with a small amount of extra legroom, tray in armrest so width curtailed a little. Seat 31G on return with a greater amount of legroom and again tray in armrest. Seat 1G by far the best of the two. On this particular experience I look forward to my next TC flight - I just hope that it has not been a one-off!!

This plane seemed to be very old. The size of screens in the middle of aisle reminded me of screens in planes I used to fly in 80's.None of the seats are reclining , almost 5 hr flight was not comfy at all. Food seemed okay , nothing special .I wouldn't fly with Thomas cook if I had another choice . This was my second flight with them . On the first one we all been starving as a result of lack of the food provided on long haul flight .

Old airplane. Reminds me of the early years of 2000. Seats are overused so it does not feel firm or comfortable any more. I guess I cannot expect more for what I paid which was OK. Food is just a snack pack. I advise you to take a book or some media stored in your phone or laptop, otherwise you will bore to death unless you wish to rest ( 9 hours flight time). There is no entertainment media system. This was a daytime flight, unlucky for me!!

I was prepared for a nice aircraft with a new layout but didn't happen due to maintenance needed on the aircraft we were meant to have. Leg room was okay, although a pillar was on the row. On the plus side it gave me two alternate views for filming the landing and takeoff. Since it was an older 767, the tv's were very low quality and were mounted on the ceiling of the aircraft... Not good but a pleasant flight over all!
