Dreamliner flight upgrade.

I'm thinking of upgrading my flights to Mexico on Boeings Dreamliner with Thomson, I've been quote about £330 each. Your opions will be most helpful.

"I've been quote about £330 each" - That seems quite high to me, what exactly are you getting for your money.

£330 seems about middle of the road for a Dreamliner upgrade. The prices varies by date and route. Even upgrades on the same route can vary between £250 and £500 if you swap flight dates by a week. They also fluctuate like the flight price.

Whether it's worth it is an entirely personal thing. Lot's of people think it's a waste of money and would sooner have it to spend in resort, others won't fly unless they upgrade.

Slightly bigger seat, 4 course meal unlimited drinks and more luggage allowance.

As we don't know you, we can't tell you if it is worth it to you. If you can easily afford it, would like extra space ( who doesn't) etc etc,,then yes it's worth it, if not, well then,,,it's not.

On a holiday to Bali a couple of years ago we were walked through Business Class on a Malaysia Airways Airbus A380 (£1500 upgrade) 15 hrs later I would've killed for that seat. Just don't know what to expect for a 300 quid upgrade other than drinks and a smiley waitress!

I certainly wouldn't compare Thomsons Premium Economy with Malaysia Business Class and you'll be very disappointed if that's your expectations.

I personally won't fly economy on a long haul flight and would upgrade simply for the few extra inches of legroom - the drinks are irrelevant to me and I expect the same level of service from the cabin crew regardless of cabin but £330 is not a lot of money for me but it might be for you.

we flew economy on the dreamliner to mexico and it was great for a long haul trip, we are both tall, hub is 6 ft 2 and we both had another 4 or 5 inches before our legs touched the seat in front, at the airport they were offering upgrades for £85 but only single seats and in resort they were doing it for £120 per couple but probably seperated seats, no way would i pay anything like £330, i can get a holiday for that

How much extra is an exit row seat in economy?
