I'm currently sat on a Thomas Cook flight, on Manchester runway on my way to JFK. So far so good, screens on headrest, bottle of water on seat, plenty of leg room. No different to any other flight to USA so far...will update later though
"Operated by Air Tanker" sounds super luxurious!
Hot prices though
Maybe mention it's Manchester and not London Heathrow

Sure, put "from Manchester" in the title, but "not London"?
Not every deal on flights will be from your local airport.

Anyone actually used AirTanker Thomas Cook on here?

I was tempted with a direct flight from Manchester to Boston recently but opted for MAN-LHR-BOS with BA due to some not so great reviews. I get the feeling it's a "get what you pay for" type deal.

We few back from Orlando on the airtanker, it was as good as the plane going out. There is a way to check if it has seat back TV or streaming which was the only downside, I think this year they all have seat back. It should show during the booking.
You get the same meals etc. I would not hesitate at these prices if my wife did not work as a TA!
As far as I’m aware it’s just a standard plane (an Airbus I believe) that Thomas Cook have contracted from Air Tanker. It has the Thomas Cook livery and everything on it, so I wouldn’t expect anything other than a normal flight. Hot!

Yes that is right. The plane we had did not have Thomas Cook decals etc but I do not think they use this now. Everything is as the standard plane, meals etc.

Our flights to Orlando cost us over £700 each Iin the summer hokidays last year so this is HOT!
Have a good look, some days in June Premium is cheaper than economy!

I used Thomas Cook twice for flights to JFK and LAX and can say that they are one of the best airlines. The hold luggage and in flight meals were included in the price, seats comfy and the service was excellent. Would defo fly again!
All seem to be one way for me so turns out pretty expensive in the end
Flew with them to SFO last year, the legroom was pretty good in standard seats and overall the flight was fine.

I thought so too but when you follow through on the booking adding the return was about 50% of the single fare (NY in May).

seattle for 370 for me
I flew flights on Air Tanker late last year. The seats were comfy with fair leg room (I'm 6ft 1in). The plane is staffed by Thomas Cook flight attendants, and they serve the same choice as on their own planes. Only difference was they had onboard wifi, which you could use with an app to watch some films (or pay extra for access to more) instead of seat-back displays. There were no plug sockets at seats, so be sure to bring an extra battery.

The only other difference was toilets were on the same level as passengers - so you want to avoid sitting in any rows near to them, I think row 8 was in line with the front ones - and this row might not be available to book for this reason (but god forbid you're assigned it at check-in!). On their own jets the toilets are downstairs.

They are for your wallet
We flew manchester to JFK with Thomas Cook when they first started the route 2 years ago. I was very impressed. Good in flight entertainment, decentish food, and good service. On the way out we paid for the extra legroom at the front row of economy, though it meant I had the emergent exit chute in my foot area, I used it as a table, or had my legs on it. My husband had the aisle seat with true extra legroom. Overnight on the way home in a normal row, and again it was fine. Comfy enough for 7 hours.

The only chore was the 5 hour drive back to Norwich after no sleep at all on the flight (neither of us can sleep on a flight). We stopped at a services but the hotel was fully booked, so we had a kip under a tree! It was a lovely hot day.

Yes, a hot meal about an hour in, then another cold snack towards the end. The meal going out from the UK is by Heston and pretty good.
Can not recommend it enough for MAN to BOS. Went last year. Flight was 11ish meaning no early get up and no queue at security. Then 7 hours done. No changing or waiting around.

Comfort wise. Its a plane. No different from aer lingus or KLM. Food, pretty similar to every other. Drinks some included some not. I bought a big water bottle from boots.

Try Aer Lingus via Dublin. Pre clearing means you come in as domestic flight. If thomas cook direct isnt available i generally use aer lingus
airtanker.co.uk/lea…ing

In realisty "Normal" Thomas Cook planes - just leased plane and pilot.

Entertainment is in seat on all
Seatguru dot com is worth a look generally for info on plane seating plans & facilities. Not always accurate as you might not fly on the plane type indicated by the airline
Are these prices really that cheap ?

They actually have a mix of A330-200's in their own fleet. Some downstairs (older) and others upstairs.
No entry for us Muslims!

Should we be worried that we haven't heard from you yet?
Shame all these deals are for yankland. Never seem to be any good deals to Havana.

I’d be pretty f king furious if I didn’t get a meal on a 7 hour flight
Flew on the TUI Dreamliner to Mexico after going on this plane. Apart from Thomas Cook don't include drinks and the extra entertainment - if you're that fussed about it then Thomas Cook was 10x better. They've started charging £3pp per way for the outside two seats but if travelling as a couple id highly recommend them. Rebooked this year.

I recommend Man-Dub-Bos with Aer Lingus. You can go through the nightmare immigration at Dublin instead of on US soil.
What airports are MCO and SFO? I know JFK and I'm guessing SEA is Seattle? Maybe should have been included :-)

Why would you assume Heathrow?
another vote for Aer Lingus via Dublin Preclearance, saves an hour or more compared to doing customs in US

I had to do that yeah before commenting, but surely that's a big detail to include destinations more clearly, shouldn't have to Google anything that's the point in coming here. Nevermind
Norwegian Air are offering the same type of prices and to be honest Thomas Cook were crap last year!
