Thomas Cook are using an aircraft over the winter, from Manchester to Cuba and Mexico, that doesn't have a premium cabin, and doesn't have seatback IFE. It does have IFE, but it is via drop down screens.

when you say drop down screens is this like we used to have on short haul flights where everyone had to watch the same thing?

Is this just the Manchester flight or will it also apply to the flight going out of Gatwick?

Re: thomas cook to cuba, I have heard a rumour that Air Europa might be taking over from thomas cook flying out of gatwick,but not sure as you should not work on rumours,but if its true that will save us people from the south traveling up to manchester.

I wouldn't fly with T/C at all after a terrible flight to Florida....not a good airline in my opinion.
