Steve Birmingham to Cape Verde TOM 638/639 Boeng 757
This was a flight of just under 6 hrs outwards without entertainment. I changed our seats as I need a little more left leg room, i’m tall and suffer with my left leg. My wife obviously wants to sit next to me for this length journey. I paid £50 to change seats based on the seating chart sent to me by Thomson’s extras.
I eventually had to chose 2 aisle seats as you can’t leave a single seat next to a window, I chose 19C and 19D at a cost of £50. I thought that this would be fine but when we boarded we found that 19C was way behind 17C, there was no 18C?. For a 6 hr flight I spoke to my wife probably 6 times as she was way behind me.
The seats were very small, I kept pressing the button to lower my seat back with my right leg by mistake. I needed an extension to the belt, which I don’t usually have to. We were returning during the night and this was a nightmare, the two male stewards were almost my size and were up and down the aisle banging into passengers as there was not enough room for them. The holiday was good but the flight was unpleasant and will prevent me from using Thomson’s in future.
