Thomas Cook's UK Fleet are loosing their fabric seat covers in favour of leather seats at a cost of £1 Million. The work takes 36 hours of fitting and the work should be done by the end of this year. Advantages include better passenger comfort, easier cleaning amougst other things according tho Thomas Cook.
The seats will be navy-blue, so they will join the club with Thomsonfly and MyTravel for this colour.
Things to also comment on is a new 'improved customer service' Thomas Cook are working on, which involves giving passengers gifts on dates of significance like Valentines Day, giving children fun-packs at check in and other things.
The in-flight meals have also changed, with the old plastic trays being swapped for a new recyclable packaging service.

Apologies if this has already been mentioned, I just thought i'd drop a line about the new interiors.
ThomasCook's newest A330 on its way appears to be having the reg F-WWKR to start with, c/n 795, before becoming G-TCXA. I was just thinking, is a registration allowed to be used twice, as F-WWKR has also been a reg for A330 c/n 729. Or is the infomation incorrect?

Anyone have any ideas on when the new A330 will be flying for TCX?
