One TOM B763 gets used for short-haul flights, so that should explain the one that isn't getting refurbed.
I am so
glad that TOM are modernising their long-haul fleet, they are the best UK Charter Company, and have more potential than ever at the moment.
As for the crew, yes some of them are a bit stuck up, but I've flown on-board Britannia/Thomsonfly flights with crews from MAN
, and LTN
, and I can honestly say they've all been amazing, except for the miserable MAN
bunch (but I wouldnt be too happy having to coach to CWL
to do a Saturday night PMI
flight on a B762!).
The mood lighting, I've always found as a great idea, make it really comfortable and gives that extra touch when flying, so I'm glad they're introducing this too.
I'm actually flying long-haul with TOM next year (haven't decided exactly where to yet, either CUN, MBJ, MLE, or SSA.
I hope it all works out for them... oh... and I'm sure we can rest assured they'll advertise it so much we'll actually be sick to death of the idea! They're gonna have to find an advert better than the FCA
one though, which is gonna be a bit of a task cause I think the FCA
ones are brilliant!
