Having started flights from Manchester to both New York and Miami during 2015, Thomas Cook has now announced a brace of new American landfalls for 2016.
Starting in May 2016, the airline will fly recently refurbished A330s on twice weekly flights to both Boston and Los Angeles.
In addition to the normal economy seats, a special, supplemental ‘Premium Service’ offers a range of enhanced facilities and in flight goodies. Among these are:
* Advance seat registration
* Priority check in
* 32 kilogram luggage allowance
* Seats with a pitch of 35″
* James Martin created menus
* Free drinks
* Upgraded in flight entertainment, with touch screens on the back of seats
The new Los Angeles flights will be particularly welcome to northern based travellers. Hitherto, we have had to fly via Heathrow or one of the major continental hubs, or from Manchester with a change at US airports such as Philadelphia and Atlanta.
Exact dates and prices will be advised as and when they become available. As ever, stay tuned.
