Newcastle to Mahon, Menorca. Outward plane was very old. Paid for extra legroom at check-in “special offer” 2 for the price of 1, paid £25; after returning home found the non-discounted price was £15 for each seat, OK still saved £5. Offered row 1 or 2, being very dozy (6am flight) I picked row 1; bulkhead, big mistake, as there was no extra legroom, luckily 1 seat of the 3 was empty. One big con by the Thomson.
The return flight was a 737-800 and on that plane Row 1 did have extra legroom and was a much better plane and quite a few empty rows.
Other than the above whinge, I found the Thomson’s flights were very good, boarding was quick, take-off and arrivals on-time, crew pretty good and would use again.
Just watch out for Thomson “special offers” early in the morning.
