Good afternoon everybody
3 of us are planning a trip from London to Crete island at end of June for a week, and we have the choice to fly between Easyjet or Thomson. As there is nothing sensible from LCY, LGW seems the most sensible and eaqsy airport for us from the SE London area. Timings and price are similar for both airlines and including hold baggage it comes out to be about GBP1100 for all 3 of us. I know easyjet uses A320 series aircraft, what about Thomson? If they use a 757 on this route I know I will want to fly with them. We have been on easyjet many times but what can we expect from Thomson?
On a sidenote, it looks like we have shorlisted this hotel called royal blue resort in the rethymno area. Any locals or people who have been who can help advise whether this area and hotel is good for a relaxing break or not? We plan to hire a car from the airport as transfers organised by the hotels look expensive, and we should have the car for the whole week.
