Thomson Airways customer reviews
“Read a load of reviews complaining about legroom issues. I’m 6ft 4 and was absolutely fine on the plane. Ok it wasn’t the most comfortable I’d been in my life, but it’s like sitting on a coach for 4 hours. It’s bearable”
“I didn’t expect masses of legroom, I didn’t pay for extra space. I was fine. I was just grateful they didn’t lose my bag”
“The snack offerings do seem quite expensive, but the drink prices are on par with other airlines we have flown with who don’t offer complimentary drinks”
