Thomas cook flight to orlando April 2015

We will be flying from manchester to orlando on the 18th of April 2015 . I believe that thomas cook have some newly fitted out a330s with better seats and IFE . Is there anyway to find out which plane we are likely to be flying on, as I believe they often use the older planes on this route?

Thanks

All the A330s only have a couple of years in age between them. They currently only have one that is different and that is the ex BMI aircraft. They had to refit the cabin as it had been stripped when they rescued it.

The flight on 18th April is scheduled on one that is currently configured as 3-3-3, but will have been refurbished and in 2-4-2 configuration by then. If you log into you booking it will show you the seating plan.

Thomas Cook are refurbing their A330 fleet that are currently in 3-3-3 configuration aircraft to 2-4-2 and retaining the premium cabin for 2015, so they will not be using older aircraft on the route as they will have all undergone the refurb.

There isn't any way to accurately know in advance which plane you'll be flying on as there is always the possibility of equipment changes up to the day of the flight.

I believe the refurbishment of the A330s is due to be completed by Summer 2015 so there is a good chance you'll be on a refurbished plane assuming there is no delay in the works.

Seatback. Currently there's 8 films and with the on demand IFE you should be able to choose from them for both flights. They are trying an upgrade which is £3 for extra films. Whether they will adopt it permanently remains to be seen.
