I recently travelled on ThomsonFly (Britannia) from LGW to PUJ and considered upgrading to Premium Economy but decided to have Seats 7G and H on their 763.
On the outbound we were on G-OBYE and saw the premium Econ seats in front of us and didn’t fork out the £180 PP per segment (value was something along those lines) as the seat pitch was only marginally better, food served quicker and portable IFE gear handed out etc.
On the return leg back to LGW we had 7 G and H again but on G-OBYF and this time it was an all econ seat layout, and at boarding many pax who booked Prem Econ were not happy with ‘normal’ seats and had to be quelled by the crew on the ground at PUJ.
It’s not our first time to PUJ on BY, G-OBYB and OBYI both had premium Econ seats, so…..
1. How come G-OBYF rows 1 to 6 are the same as economy?
2. What does the Prem Econ pax get for £180, if the seat is the same as an econ and doesn’t have the portable IFE given out like on G-OBYE?
Im due back at PUJ again in May 2006 and debating whether to have the nicer seats but I might end up with all economy G-OBYF !!!
