The noise and vibration was shocking , never forget it.
I used to live under the flight path to LHR
and around 6pm every night it roared over and never got tired of it !
Flew Thomas Cook Airlines for the first time ever the other day. Have to say they really impressed me for a Charter. Actually beat many traditional scheduled carriers. They do not get much of a mention around here but thought they deserved it. They have a small but effective and well run base at BFS
. Also the new aircraft being based there are great to fly on. I flew G-TCDB which along with G-TCDC do the charter runs.
The seats actually were very comfortable and legroom was great. I know they may not look it but after 4 hours on one I can safely say they were fine.
They also excelled on the BOB options. I had taken the seat/luggage/meal deal for a EUR10 discount. The meal was one of the best I have had in Y for a long time.
Lastly after the movie ''Gravity'' had finished the moving map was played for the last part of the flight which was for me great
We made our way up from Cork over Newry and into BFS
The loads were around 95% mostly people on all in package. I was one of the few flight only passengers. We landed 20 mins early approx. Pilot came on and gave us lots of info which was great. All crew were from around the BFS
area. The crew were 100% and really had the craic and interacted with the passengers. Seated at the exit a crew member was next to me for take off and landing. We had a really good chat and I have to say all the crew were a credit to TCX.
was the only downside. Its so dull and aged.They need to either do a major overhaul and brighten up the place or knock it down and build a new Terminal. It has not changed much in the near two decades I have been using it.
I know a few of our Northern members have used the TCX flights a few times and had positive experiences. Its a shame we dont see them down South and in recent TC
developments in the Republic we are unlikely to ever see them. Still for a alternative out of the North its a decent operation!
