Which aircraft is TOM 831?

We are flying from Birmingham (UK) to Cancun (Mexico) on Saturday 26th January 2013.

Is this a Thomsons plane or an ex First Choice?

The reason I ask is to understand the small chance of getting bumped out of premium economy - apparently Ex First Choice aircraft have 9 rows of P/E and Thomsons have 5.

We are booked in row 2 outward and return.

Hi stevenc4874. You say in your other posting that you are getting exited about your flight to Cancun. I don’t know if you have seen this web page but it will allow you to follow most commercial flights and you get the plane type / registration etc. You should be able to see your flight if you check on the flight for a couple of weeks before you go. If it’s displaying too many aircraft you can create a filter TOM which will then only show Thomson flights etc.

It’s a great way to waste some time!! - http://www.flightradar24.com/

I should also have said, that if the aircraft type is changed, bumping is done by booking date, not row numbers.

Ley - I cannot navigate around the holidaytruths website - It is new to me and I couldn't see the question I asked! - would you repost that answer on here please.

So far as booking date goes - I am hopeful I will be OK as we booked in June this year.

Perhaps your poor English explains why you didn't understand that Self Advertising/Promotion is against TA Guidelines. Reported as inappropriate.

Because it was blatant advertising and has been removed.
