THOMAS COOK AIRLINES ECONOMY CLASS SEAT REVIEW - BOEING 757-200

The most cramped I have ever been on any aircraft. Over five hours and unable cross or uncross legs plus an extra 30 mins on the ground before takeoff. Seat did not recline, though the one in front did! TV screen failed to deploy so no film. Only a sliver of window meaning that fuselage wall was oppressive adding to claustrophobic feel. I am not a big person, 5' 9 and 11 st. I doubt I will ever fly with Thomas Cook again!

Terrible, claustrophobic, no actual legroom unless you are under 5'6" I would guess - I'm 6'1 and this was a living nightmare for 7 hours. Minimum seat pitch but when reclined actually felt worse on my neck. Ended up with strains to back and neck by end of journey. I'm fit, slim and flown on all kinds of planes. I will never fly with Thomas Cook again. They need to give a warning to all customers as this is not acceptable and I would say to all potential customers to seriously consider their options before flying on an antiquated 757.

Manchester to Kefalonia, seat 2a. Right up against the wall of the toilets. Hardly any legroom or footroom and inward curve of plane made it even more cramped. Seat did not recline at all and was very narrow. Screen impossible to see anything on. Wonky seat tray which had to be pulled out of armrest and refused to go back after, had to be forced back by one of the crew with some difficulty. Meal prebooked but offered no choice, given curry that resulted in digestive upset later. All in all a very unpleasant experience. Flew back seat 5e. Also very cramped, knees hitting back of seat in front all flight. Width marginally better because no tray storage but screen still impossible to see. Only saving grace was the crew who remained cheerful and attentive throughout. These were the most uncomfortable journeys I have suffered for 30 years. Easyjet is luxury in comparison.

Flew from Turkey on a 4 hour 30 minute flight. Trip out on an Airbus was very good, but Thomas Cook need to think about the image their Boeing 757 fleet gives. Bare minimum seat pitch and awful planes, is like being packed in like sardines. Terrible and it has made me seriously consider using them ever again.

Leg room is minimal. I am only 5ft 8in but it was so cramped that it was claustrophobic. When the tray was down, there was no chance of moving. Couldn't pick up a dropped spoon. Will never travel on this airline again.

Seat pitch is the absolute minimum of 27". Our 6 hour flight to Egypt from the UK was something I will never repeat. I am 5'11, my wife 5'4 and in our late 50's. If we were still skinny little 20 somethings, we might just about have managed, but the plane was mostly filled with people like us and no one had a good word to say about the experience.

I had to splay/angle my legs to get them in, even with the magazines removed, and that's where they stayed for the 4.5 hours back from Turkey. I realise, that at 6'2" I'm not small but, this is hardly an unusual size these days. I am fit and healthy yet managed to end the flight with swollen ankles. Although I had an aisle seat it was impossible to allow even a knee to protrude, because the hard working cabin crew were using it constantly. I realise seat upgrades for legroom are an option (if available) but you at least expect the standard option to be safe. The holiday was good but the flight back so poor, I simply will not risk Thomas Cook Airlines again.

Very poor legroom throughout with an added problem that the seats in front of the bulkhead do not have any space to recline. The seat has a headrest which pushes forward forcing you into an extremely uncomfortable position. I won't travel Thomas Cook (and won't book Neilson holidays) again.

Atrocious seats for a long haul flight. Premium economy is better but a rip off price wise. The width is totally unacceptable on economy seats and you can't access the controls for the tv unless you are incredibly skinny!

I have travelled on many airlines and my flight on this aircraft from Vancouver to Manchester was the worst flight I have ever taken. The legroom was dreadful, seat would not recline and the seat back tv did not work (also on the 2 seats in front and behind me).

Manchester to Varadero Cuba. We were put into medical seats due to my partners disability. We were in row 8 which had an area in front of us that was used by everyone including crew as a walkway. We tried to get some sleep but were constantly trodden on or kicked. At one point people were actually standing in front of us in the area that was meant to be for our leg space. Seat width is very narrow. The worst flight experience we have ever had.

Gatwick to Dalaman and return. Typical cheap airline, knees jammed against the seat in front, could not put leg into aisle as it was constantly getting bashed by cabin crew and trolley.

Glasgow to Funchal, 4 hours! I am of average build and height but with only 30" inside leg. I could not sit straight. With my seat and the one in front upright, there was only a spread hands width between my face and the seat in front.

Legroom was quite adequate in economy. Seat width a bit restrictive but bearable. My wife found the seats a bit hard.

We had upgraded to Premium on this flight to Kerala (10 hours) and the product does not compare favourably with the First Choice upgrade, particularly with regard to the comfort of the seat. We would repeat a previous comment that it felt like sitting on a wooden bench - had to stand up at regular intervals to get the feeling back in our legs! Would avoid this airline (even upgraded seats) unless there is no option.

I sat in the Premium Cabin on a long haul flight to Canada and the seats were appalling and did not justify extra expenditure. It was like sitting on a park bench and thankfully they supplied a blanket which I needed to sit on.

This trip was long Haul return to Barbados. Both flights were the worst I have ever had. The seats were torture. I just happened to have a mini tape measure on my keyring and I am not sure how the official measurement is taken from where to where but all I can say is that it measured 9.5" from the front edge of my seat to the almost empty magazine pocket. The angle of the seat was so upright it was verging on being forward. All the time the little TV in the seat (almost against my nose) was telling us just how important "Customer Comfort" is to Thomas Cook.

Row 14 has no window. Seat did not recline and was extremely uncomfortable for long haul flight. No room to move. Unfortunately we were all given the same seats on return journey so once again spent hours in a "claustrophobic hole".
