Plus the flying experience will improve further with upgraded in–flight entertainment featuring a wider choice of films, updated monthly.
The leisure carrier gets two more of the jetlag-busting Boeing 787s next summer, bringing the fleet to eight and it has added flights from Newcastle, Birmingham and Edinburgh to Manchester, Glasgow, Gatwick and East Midlands, so it now operates the aircraft from all seven of its long haul bases.
Airline boss John Murphy said: “The Dreamliner has certainly lived up to its promise to revolutionise long haul travel and is a major milestone in our journey of modernising the holiday experience.” .thomsonfly.com.
